    HAWK Day

    Today is HAWK Day.
    That means that you can all do nothing for a while and just celebrate me.

    I didn't think you were worth celebrating?

    Edit: And I do nothing EVERY day.

    I'd go with daily only I don't want it to lose it's appeal, so let's make it an annual thing. You can drink tequila on other days though if you like.

    So while you were being worshipped on 'HAWK Day' did it feel good that your beloved staff were busily partying away in your honour.

    It did. Nothing like instigating a good party.

    Sure, why not. I'm a fair boss.

    I'm going to have to take a deferred HAWK day - I need one, but I'm too busy

    (and it'll have to be vodka for me - tequila and me don't play well )

    How is that I didn't see this? I missed the party! But no worries... I'll have my own party and I will celebrate HAWK's day three days in a row... and right after that I will celebrate me for another four days... I'm worthy of a good celebration, too... *flicks hair and runs to buy drinks and get the party ready*

    This thread was to celebrate HAWK day a couple of years ago, but I'm glad you've raised it again.

    No, it wasn't me... although I just proved my attention to detail... I looked at the date but just day and month... not the year.

    Anyway, what I was saying... I didn't raise, it was @xhtmlcoder ; who did it ... Still, I think that celebrating your day (even if it is with a delay of two years) is a good thing and I'm still going to get the drinks and the party ready
