When asking someone “What’s new?” or “What’s happening?”, how often do you hear “Nothing really, same old stuff”.
According to Holiday Insights, today, is Old Stuff Day, in recognition of this all too common response. It is suggestive of a boring time period, or a boring life style. ….how sad.
Old Stuff Day is not a day to do the same old stuff. Rather, it’s a time to recognize the boring nature of your daily routine, and make some exciting changes. Find new and different activities, projects, and hobbies. Attend an event. Do something, anything, different. You will be glad that you did!
I didn’t know there was a Flower of the Day or a Recipe of the day, but here they are.
Flower of the Day: Lilacs
Recipe of the Day: Pumpkin Cheesecake

I personally love Old Stuff, since I never seem to have a nothing day, where the same Old Stuff happens, I have to think about getting rid of more of my Old Stuff.
I guess we can apply this to our writing, especially in the form of Clichés, but don’t you just love an old cliché once in a while?
Who knows what each of these mean?
- “More troubles than Carter has pills.”
- “I’m tired of being a broken record.”
- “The cat’s pajamas.”
- “All is fair in love and war.”
- “What goes around, comes around.” (My favorite from my Mom)
