(Read up on what #Richards2016 is all about here.)
Hey again! Back to a single post (phew!). All those double posts were such a drag.
HERES WHAT I HAVE DONE WITH MY LIFE.
May 21st: Rapture Party Day
As well you know, the rapture did not happen last week. Sorry guys, but it just don’t look like it’s coming any time soon either. Thus, having a ‘rapture party’ isn’t really a thing that’s possible to do. But I did something close enough.

Cambridge Foodpark is a collective of street food traders, who get together in various spots around the city to sell delicious things. In the summer months they do these little night park things. On Saturday, this was out in a barn some ways out of the town centre. There was music, dancing, and the hottest chicken wings I’ve had in months.
It felt like a little secret end-of-the-world rave. So I’m calling this one: CLOSE ENOUGH.
May 22nd: Sherlock Holmes Day

Turns out I basically dress as Sherlock Holmes all the time anyway! Though I think my pro-gaming PC chair in the background spoils this just a bit.
May 23rd: Turtle Day
It looks like I’ve started my own tradition of just drawing animals on animal-related days. So here’s a FANCY TURTLE
YES HE’S WEARING A CANE AND TOP HAT. HE IS THE FANCIEST OF TURTLES.
May 24th: Brother’s Day

Yeah, this counts. I think you’re allowed to just be someone’s brother. Anyway, shut up.
(That’s my sister, btw).
May 25th: Tap Dancing Day
I was at a wedding. The PERFECT place to tap my feets.
— Richard Cook 🎂 (@cookywook) May 25, 2016
Yeah I know you can’t see a thing. It was a dark wedding, ok? But yes, I’m doing my best to tap along to some S Club. Don’t judge me.
May 26th: World Lindy Hop Day
So. I didn’t actually dance the lindy hop.
Because I was at a Beer Festival.
Beer has hops in it.
I’m calling this barely acceptable. Again, shut up.
May 27th: Cellophane Tape Day
Ah, cellophane tape. AKA cellotape lol. Anyway, here I am with a phone taped to my face like an idiot.
It's Cellophane Tape Day, so I've taped a phone to my face. Don't copy this. pic.twitter.com/0yOl5NfTcZ

Like that? Here’s another.
DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME. It hurts and makes you look stupid.
So, what’s coming up in the next seven days?
- May 28th: Hamburger Day
- May 29th: Biscuit Day
- May 30th: Loomis Day
- May 31st: No Tobacco Day
- June 1st: Say Something Nice Day
- June 2nd: Rocky Road Day

NOTE: I’m away on a work trip most of next week. So if I’m not able to do something good for – say, ‘Chimborazo Day’ (???) – then I apologise in advance.
