I'm giddy :D

Now it is up to you to figure out why I'm so giddy :gikkle: 

So did you all notice that next week is a 1in every 4 years occurrence, a Leap Year? It seems to me like I don't notice as much, ever since the Winter Olympics were moved from the Leap Year's to two years later and the Summer Olympics stayed on the Leap Year. I guess for the non sports lovers out there, you're saying WTF :P If you are a sports follower, I imagine you are more interested in the Summer Olympics than the Winter, so once again WTF :P 

P.S. Also a PSA, rather than the 1st day of Spring being March 20th it will be March 19th this year :yes: In case you or your fellow Druids were planning on going to Stonehenge, I don't want you a day late!! That would really suck.

You also know what? With an extra day that means you get a whole bonus day to get in your Poetry Anthology entry or entries! Since April 1st is the due date, why procrastinate any longer? Leave that to me where every week at a ridiculous hour I get started on the Weekly Wrap Up :o Well, let's go with I want the most up to date news and chapters published 0:) .

So before I turn into a pumpkin in a minute, let's get this show on the road.

Monday, Cia introduced us to a very popular author in the Signature Author Feature. Did you get into the blog?

Tuesday, Myr left us all kind of guessing what were the top stories in his Deep Dive:

Wednesday, we got the Signature Feature Author Excerpt to go with Monday's Announcement:

On Wednesday, colour me stupid, but I never thought the Author Guess Who Reveal would be who it was!

Spoiler

I mean, other than knowing she is a consistently pestering penguin that has a make believe army, what else was there really to know? :P 

Friday, in a twist of something different, @Aditus brought up some items and called them out as items:

I didn't get a chance to read Comicality's Article this week, but I will take a look later. Maybe you should too! After all, it is all about you :P 

 

What a mishmash of words this week for the Words of the Day.

mishmash, commodious, jittersimplode, ramekin, earsplitting, gazelle

So did you all notice that next week is a 1in every 4 years occurrence, a Leap Year? 

Not exactly.  If the year is divisible by 100, but not divisible by 400, there is no leap year.  There was no leap year in 1700, 1800, and 1900, but there was in 2000.  The actual length of a year in 365.2425, and doing that is supposed to bring the calendar back in sync.
