June is National Everything Month

Hey, guess what I discovered. Apparently, June is National Audiobook Month. There's a month for everything isn't there? There's more. June is also:

Adopt A Shelter Cat Month -- Except for my Friend ET... No more cats for you. Stop yourself!
Cancer From The Sun Month
Celibacy Awareness Month
Child Vision Awareness Month
Children’s Awareness Month -- Wait, who is aware? Us or the kids?
Dairy Alternative Month
Dairy Month
Effective Communications Month
Entrepreneurs Do It Yourself Marketing Month
Fireworks Safety Month -- I would feel so much better if we focused on this in July.
Gay and Lesbian Pride Month
Great Outdoors Month
International Childhood Cancer Campaign Month
International Men's Month
Lane Courtesy Month -- Oh! I see. It's just in June! That explains so much.
National Accordion Awareness Month
National Aphasia Awareness Month
National Bathroom Reading Month
National Candy Month
National Dairy Month

Professional Wellness Month
Rebuild Your Life Month

Thank you, Geeze a Lou! What a list... You know, I really wanted to use that expression. I think I'll do it again: Geeze a Lou! Does anyone know who the heck Lou is?

Anyway, with all the stuff for June alone, I had to run a spot check, just to see how ridiculous this could get. Ladies and gentlemen, Washington has limits. There is no National Underwater Basket Weaving Month.

The NONEXISTENT Rockway Press Short Story Contest

Rockway Press never actually posted the winners of the 2007 contest. Their site has entirely disappeared, and they're on the Preditors and Editors list.
