Today's a day for recognizing order amid the onslaught of chaos, or for having a memorable wedding date.
And if you believe in making moments count, this morning offered two special ones as well: 8:09:10 11-12-13, taking this down to the second, and 9:10 11-12-13, which will last for a whole minute.
The fact that there won't be a 13-13-13 shows we're near the end of a period with frequent numerologically curious date patterns, because no longer can the year match the month.
Next year will have the last sequential date, 12-13-14, till 01-02-03. (Go by European notation, putting the date first, and Dec. 11 -- also written 11-12-13 -- will mark the end of that sort of sequential pattern this century.)
