There are so many other things to do beside sit in front of your idiot box (or hulu or netflix)! So invite friends over and cook together, read a book, plan a trip, or if you’re like me, draw something and listen to audio books!!
Local peeps should check the site Brooklyn Based for some fun stuff to do local.
The first thing I think of when I hear ‘Backwards Day’ is Kris Kros and their backwards overalls and it makes me want to Jump Jump! So if for some reason I feel compelled to think more about the idea of backwards vs. forwards I think about pallindromes. Keep an eye out for some art later this month based on palindromes.
Ho Ho Ho make sure you use Santa Serif when writing your letters children! Amazing!

Last chance to get Dad that tie you didn’t get him for Father’s Day. When I was a kid my father was the one who stayed home with me. But since he was working remotely he had to distinguish for me between ‘Working Dad’ and ‘Free to Bother Him Dad’. He claims he wore a tie during the day, and then took it off at 6pm. But I only remember him in old cut off workpants and white Hanes tshirts. I wonder if he wore the tie over that…
