Default 8/08/2008 at 8:08 a.m.

Hopefully I'll be seated at my desk at work sipping a hot cup of coffee and getting caught up on my emails. Anyone going to pay any attention to it?

FYI 8:08 p.m. doesn't count because its actually 20:08. So, if you missed it in the morning you'll have to wait until September next year.

So go out and play your lottery numbers. You'll have plenty of company.

So what? I don't care.

edit: I'm sorry the people in the other forum are either yelling at me for no aparent reason or just being grumpy in general.

I guess it's making me grumpy too.

That's OK. Hit the snooze button and sleep through it. Someday you'll begin to notice and appreciate simple coincidences you'll never see again.

Often we take so many things for granted. Everytime I see the morning sun I feel so fortunate. There are people in hospital beds wondering if it will be their last sunrise. So, 8/08/08 will be my own special New Year's Eve-type countdown.

I didn't even think of it - although I bet the lotto freaks bought lots of "888" tickets. I'll celebrate by making 8 cups of 8 O'Clock coffee!

a convergence day, numerologically. those who believe in numerology will definitely treat this day and that time of that day differently than others.
