Well, it’s almost eleven o’clock at night, and I just remembered that I had wanted to wish you all a happy Palindrome Day! [Of course, this day only applies if you live in the USA where we do month/day/year, and not in the rest of the world where they do day/month/year. Sorry Beans.]

Today is one of the very, very few palindrome days that any of us will see in our lifetimes. (Isn’t that both amazing and depressing?)

The others in this century will be:

11.02.2011

12.02.2021

03.02.2030

04.02.2040

05.02.2050

06.02.2060

07.02.2070

08.02.2080

09.02.2090

Of course, there are a few more if you choose to write them in a palindromical style:

2.20.2022

3.20.2023

4.20.2024

5.20.2025

6.20.2026

7.20.2027

8.20.2028

9.20.2029

1.30.2031

3.30.2033

4.30.2034

5.30.2035

6.30.2036

7.30.2037

8.30.2038

9.30.2039

Hmmm…. At the beginning of this post, I was very concerned that I was missing an extremely important day, and, frankly, I felt like the opportunity to enjoy the date was slipping my by.

It was a little bit sad.

But now that I’ve listed all of the other palindrome days above, I feel better!

Here are a few more palindromes for your enjoyment:

Madam, I’m Adam.

Do geese see God?

Lisa Bonet ate no basil.

Ah, Satan sees Natasha.

Anne, I vote more cars race Rome to Vienna.

Go hang a salami–I’m a lasagna hog!

Never odd or even.

Quick but topical aside: Did you know that Bing posts all Twitter feeds on a subject? Well it does! And someone just posted this in response to Palindrome Day:

it’s not actually Palindrome day. because if its 01/2/10 then it has to be 01/02/10 and thats not a palindrome. DUH.

What?

Until 11.02.2011, happy Palindrome Day. May you see many, many more.
