September 9, 2009

So today is 9 September 2009 (09/09/09). I’m sure a gazillion people are getting married today since the number 9 is believed to be an auspicious number for the Chinese, which means forever (or eternity or long-lasting, you get the point) in the case of getting married.

I’m not that superstitious to believe that a marriage will last forever just because a couple marries on this date. But I’m not saying it’s wrong for others to believe in it. I mean I guess it helps prolong (for the lack of other terms) the marriage when you have that mentality in mind because you would try harder, I think? *shrug*

Either that or you just get married on this day because you won’t forget easily the date of your anniversary, therefore you wife-to-be won’t be nagging you about it. ;))

I really don’t know.


I was driving earlier today and had the radio on. Suddenly the song “Mmmbop” by Hanson came on air. I’m sure almost everyone reading this will know what song that is. If not, look it up on Youtube. Now, Rob and I have discussed that song before and he basically said that it was THE most annoying song ever. The second I heard the song on the radio, I immediately called him.

R: Hello? (very confused because I had already called him earlier)
S: Hi honey! I want you to listen to something
R: Okay….? What?
S: Okay, hang on.

*Cue me turning up the volume*

Mmm bop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, Ba du dop
Ba du bop, Ba du dop
Ba du

R: …..
S: Do you hear it?
R: Yeah…
S: You know what song that is?
R: Yeah…I think so…
S: Are you ssssssssure?
S: :))
R: *making vomiting sounds*

We hung up after the song ended. Later this afternoon, we talked about my little spontaneous phone call.

S: So you still have that song in your head? :))
R: Yes…
S: :))
R: You suck!
S: :))
R: Oh you really suck!
S: I know :)) Mmmbop ba du dop
R: :puke:
S: Oh admit it, you like that song!
R: Maybe…
S: Oh I’m so getting that song now!

Twenty minutes or so later, we both got the song. We played it and sang together to the song, all the while bopping our heads and laughing our asses off. It was fantastic! I think Rob secretly enjoys that song even though he doesn’t wanna admit it. =))

I had a wonderful 09/09/09. How about you?

Happy 09/09/09 everyone!
