Today, for maybe the second time in your life (if you were around for 1:23.45 6/7/89, that is), there will be a CRAZY RUN of all 9 single-digit numbers in the timestamp and date. At 12:34 and 56 seconds p.m., it will be 123456789. Does this mean doom and destruction and the apocalypse are upon us? Could be. More likely it’s an entirely insignificant factoid that humans will think about for two seconds and say “WOAHHH, CRAZY,” like Bill & Ted on their excellent adventure and then it will be 12:35 and time for you to get lunch at Au Bon Pain.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: acaciaO@welovedc.com or follow her on twitter.
