There’s an Anchorman reference in this one. Just saying.

You can’t really go wrong with this week, even if you have a bad day on Tuesday.

Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble: Monday 18th November is a chance to get your Halloween costume back out, but for a far more serious setting. Occult Day is when ghouls, goblins and gooey ectoplasm are celebrated through everything from palm reading to ouija boards, just make sure you don’t get possessed and start talking with a voice as deep as Ving Rhames.

Do you know a man? Do you know men? Pay tribute to them on Tuesday 19th November, the official Men’s Day. From getting the man you know a beer to helping him learn about the wellbeing of his love spuds, this is a day with plenty of hair on its chest. However, it’s also Have a Bad Day Day, where we take a break from saying “have a nice/good day” and wish people a bad day instead, but please, don’t take it out on the men.

My PC (well, it’s a Mac) is called Geoff. What’s yours called? If you haven’t given it a name, make sure you do on Wednesday 20th November for Name Your PC Day.

Now, I’m big on reducing, reusing and recycling. Anything recyclable goes in its corresponding bin, including food scraps and garden waste. I give used magazines to friends for them to read, and old clothes and household items go to charity shops or recycling centres. So there’s not much extra I can do on Thursday 21st November, which is Use Less Stuff Day, although I guess I could take a slightly shorter shower. On top of that it’s Hello Day, so in case I don’t see you before then, HELLO!

Whether you’re into walking and cycling or are always behind the wheel, Go For A Ride Day on Friday 22nd November is one you’ll enjoy. Or maybe you’d prefer to take a day trip via bus or train – whatever you do, make sure to tweet me a pic and I’ll retweet it: @sobananapenguin

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144… As Ron Burgundy would say, “Boy, that escalated quickly.” The number sequence that you just saw with your mortal eyes is attributed to Leonardo of Pisa, or Fibonacci. Each number is the product of the previous two. Neat, eh? Celebrate Fibonacci Day on Saturday 23rd November with a pack of M&Ms – eat one, then one again, then two in one go, then three, then five, then eight and so on. I wonder if anyone can get past thirty-four.

Celebrate your Unique Talent Day on Sunday 24th Novemberis pretty self-explanatory. Whether it’s ballet or paperclip chains, show the world what you do best. I’m a writer myself and, though not as frequently as I would like, I write stories that fit within a single tweet (140 characters). If you’d like to read them, please check out @tinyweefiction.

Thanks for reading. Now go seize the day!
