On the number 12

I don’t plan on making this temporary abandonment of Urban Peanut: A Gallery a habit, mind you. A lot has happened in the last month regarding design and my involvement in the industry, which is, by the way, up to this moment, a very good circumstance.

I have to meditate on the number 12, my favourite number. My partiality towards the number might have something to do with my birthdate. It is quite an important number for the vast majority of us. Months, disciples and doughnuts come in 12s. So did exposures on a roll of 35mm film, a long time ago.

The 12th of October also is the anniversary of Columbus’ landing in he Caribbean (BTW political correctness is not the focus of this entry), the birthday of Luciano Pavarotti, and marks the launch of Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (1979). It is  pretty important date in culture and human history.

For this year, the 12th of October, I anticipate, will also be an important day. It will be the day after Thanksgiving weekend. It will also be the day when my friends and family come together to celebrate me through song and food. An iPad is also an option. Thank you very much in advance. And dark chocolate cakes are most welcome.

    12 Doobie Brothers right?

    • I think that was very subconscious. My VH1 Behind the Music knowledge has been buried by the iPad’s virtues. I’m surprised that there has been no collab between Doobie Brothers and Apple. The riffs also prompt dreams of a Jay-Z guest spot.

  3. Hi,

    We would like to thank you for your interest in our straw bale hotel.
    As you can see, construction works are still on, but we think we’ll be ready for opening in October this year.

    We wish you a Happy New Year and a lot of visits on your blog.

    Greetings from Switzerland

    Louis
