Those who know me know that I get really bored at work and have a serious love for food, so I try to keep up with the stupid food holidays (especially the drinking ones). My birthday is National Gazpacho Day. GAZPACHO?! I Googled this monstrosity. Who the hell would ever want to eat a tomato-based vegetable soup served cold?! THAT'S what the day of my birth celebrates? 

Why, oh why, couldn't I have been born two days later on National Brownie Day?! :(

What's yours?

Really?! Is it really good?! It's creeping me out, but if you recommend it, I would try it. Just not on my birthday... in case it ruined it...
