Get your plans set now. If you miss this one, you won’t get another chance to do all those special 10:10 10/10/10 things for another hundred years. What special tenness do you have planned?

I intend to put up a tent and attend intensely to tender intentions. With my tentacles.

It’s our anniversary and my husband will still be here for it, so we will be celebrating it together!

Celebrate my grandfather’s life.

It is my daughter’s 10th birthday! At both 10:10’s we will be doing a special dance to celebrate her being 10 on 10/10/10 at 10:10! This will most likely involve ice-cream and tiaras. Other suggestions welcome!

I’m going to sit home, make a wish, and then realize that I have 3 more days until I’m 18.

oh! I didn’t even realize that this was happening. good thing we have Fluther. I’ll have to get friends together so that we can celebrate the occasion.

Ooooooh. You’re right, I should do something. What would make it special? Can’t think of any “10” movies, so Star Wars I guess?

You know what would be awesome? If you posted this again on 10/10/10, at say, 8:00, so that we could all remember…

Fred931's avatar

That would be Sunday. I’ll be in the car riding back home at exactly that time. Bad timing, much?

@papayalily You could show the movie 10 with Bo Derek and Dudley Moore. As for a reminder, don’t forget that the Jellies far east of the US will hit 10pm well before others.

If I wasn’t married, that would be a day I would marry. As it happened I married on 10/10/01, because somebody couldn’t wait until 02/02/02, or 03/03/03, etc.

MissAnthrope's avatar

@AmWiser – I like that idea. I guess I have a little over 2 years to get married before the opportunity to get married on 11/11/11 or 12/12/12 is gone forever.

Well 10 Lords a Leaping for me are out for me….Can I substitute 10 hot Kazooists on a trampoline instead??

AmWiser's avatar

@MissAnthrope Thanks, it did make for a great date. 11/11/11 would be a great day to get married and it will be here before you know it…So start makin those plans:D

Gamrz360's avatar

I’m looking forward to 11:11 on 11–11-11

talljasperman's avatar

what about 12:12 12–12-12?

ETpro's avatar

Oh @Jeruba! We chambered nautiluses have 90 tentacles if you need any help.

@Seaofclouds Congratulations and have a great anniversary celebration on a very unique date.

@Neizvestnaya Here’s to your grandpa, who must have been a 10.

@liminal Wow!!! That is incredible. Happy birthday to her!

@ducky_dnl Ha! What kind of wish is it that requires you be 18 for it to come true?

@mandybookworm Absolutely. A TEN party is in order.

@papayalily You know what would be great? If I woke up by 8 AM on 10/10/10.

@Fred931 Maybe it’s an auspicious time to stop for a delicious Sunday brunch.

@Pied_Pfeffer Great movie suggestion. It’s a sorry enough movie it’s great for laughs.

@AmWiser Too bad you couldn’t have married a year earlier. Then 10/10/10 would be your 10th anniversary and not your 9th. But congratulations on your anniversary anyway.

@MissAnthrope You have your work cut out for you. :-)

@Cruiser That sounds surreal enough for such a numerologically significant date.

@Gamrz360 What? Not enough time to get ready for 10:10 on 10/10/10?

@talljasperman Twelve is the number of mankind. It’s an interesting date.

AstroChuck's avatar

Yes. I’ll be preparing my plans for 11/11 at 11:11 next year.

ETpro's avatar

@AstroChuck That sounds like a neverending journey. :-)

Jeruba's avatar

Isn’t anybody playing tennis?

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Jeruba Not for about 15 years now.

sliceswiththings's avatar

Uhhhh waitressing. Hopefully I’ll get a 10-top and they won’t leave a 10 percent tip.

ETpro's avatar

@sliceswiththings Let’s hope. It might help to remind the people you are serving of the auspicious date.time.

liminal's avatar

@Jeruba now that you mention it, I contend that I will competently have ten tennis balls and some tennis racquets in attendance!

Fred931's avatar

I’ll just wait till 11:11 on 11/11/11, which is 5 days away from my 17th birthday and is also at 11:11, so I can make a wish.

Rufus_T_Firefly's avatar

Yeah, it’s my daughter’s birthday so we’re doing everything in tens. Ten cards, ten cupcakes, ten gifts, etc., etc.

By the way, for anyone who hasn’t noticed and for all the Douglas Adams fans out there, 10–10-10 is ‘42’ in binary code.

ETpro's avatar

@Fred931 Wow. Neat. We can even put things off till 12:12 on 12/12/12 because the Myan long count calendar supposedly doesn’t end ti 12/21/12.

Ha! So it is. Does that mean we learn the meaning of Life, the Universe and Everything this October?

Jeruba's avatar

@Rufus_T_Firefly, isn’t it the other way around?—101010 in binary is 42 in decimal?

Rufus_T_Firefly's avatar

@Jeruba – Sorry, it should have read, 10 – 10 – 10 is binary for ‘42’. That’s what I get for staying up too late.

Jeruba's avatar

(But without the dashes: it’s just the value 101010.)

I’ll fluther like it’s 1999.
