Unrelated to that, I woke up at two pm today. After I flew into an untamable rage, tossing my blankets around and surging towards the coffee maker, I realized it's Earth Day. The first thing I did, of course, was jet on over to Google to check out their logo. This is literally one of the very first things I do on holidays. The supernerd in me gets a kick out of how their designers manipulate the logo for whatever special occasion is going on. Anywho, today's Earth Day doesn't disappoint:
And it's actually animated, too. When you mouse over the different animals they do little animations. When you mouse over the river, a fish swims up the waterfall and then a bear snatches it out of the air lol. I didn't even notice the little frog on the right or the koala in the tree until just now, either. Yay cuteness! Nevertheless, I think I'll take the bus to work today. I have to drive part of the way since there's no route where I live, but it's all good.
Anyway, I think everybody should do at least something little today. Take the bus, plant something in your yard, pick up some of the litter in a local area, donate to some eco-friendly cause. Because who can forget the age-old wisdom of the ancient sage known as Captain Planet:
The power...is YOURS!
