OK. I am a complete numbers wienie. I am all aflutter looking forward to 09:09:09 tomorrow (that's 09/09/09 on the calendar). This doesn't happen very often. Actually, I ignored last year's 08/08/08 celebration. I will not miss out on the next three year's numeric coolnesses (10:10:10 on 10/10/10, 11:11:11 on 11/11/11, 12:12:12 on 12/12/12), but after that we have to wait another 89 years for synchronous date and time phenomenon.
Why is 09/09/09 so special?
