Today is Invite an Alien to Live with You Day. When I told my husband, he replied, "I thought you already did." Very cute. He's an alien from Oklahoma, you see, and he charmed me into inviting him to Missouri.... But I digress.

July 21st is Monkey Day, commemorating the date when Scopes was found guilty during the Scopes Monkey Trial against teaching evolution in schools. Celebrate however you see fit - visit the monkeys at your local zoo, reminisce about David Letterman's Monkey Cam, or send a Monkey Day e-card. Enjoy!
