My cousin's birthday. So this morning I texted her saying "Happy Birthday old fart". Which is hilarious to me because she's only two years older than me . It's also National Buffet Day. Which makes me sad because the only buffet I ever liked, even loved, was "The Old Country Buffet". And ours closed about 4-5 years ago, and my boyfriends did about 2-3. National Cream Puff Day. I'll pass. National Personal Trainer Awareness Day. Don't have a personal trainer so I'll pass. National Science Fiction Day. I'll pass.

Um...might wanna edit, pretty sure you meant January instead of December...but maybe you're living in a time-warp

It’s the 81st anniversary of the birth of Roger Miller, too! Dang me, he was good. Old Country Buffets were good. The only buffets we have now are Golden Corral, and they’re grotesquely overpriced (hey, gotta recover that 10% discount they’re giving the seniors, right?). Some places still have Ryan’s but all of ours closed. So I’ll just listen to Jimmy Buffett to celebrate. I’m not much of a sci-fi fan, either, despite the fact that The Day The Earth Stood Still is one of my favorite movies.

Yeah all OCBs closed due to money, from what i was told. Just all at different times. We don't have GC, or Ryan's, which was owned by same people as OCB. Whos Roger Miller

@Courtlynn -- Roger was king of the road!! He holds (to this day) the record for most Grammy awards for a country artist in one year.

I've been to the Golden Corral Buffet two years ago for my birthday. I miss the buffets at Sizzlers from my youth. Cream puffs are good. Not a big sci fi fan. Not sure on personal trainer awareness day. Hope your cousin has a good birthday.

We don't have golden corral. Only one we had was OCB, and another one thats in the next town thats the only one of it and went once and it was gross and then there was rumors of hair and nails in the food after that.

@Courtlynn it wasn't that. It use to be a 100% vegan place. It had like a twenty foot counter with all kinds of salad topping. . Then a spot for breads, pasta and soups!

I like Ponderosa but ours closed years ago. There is one remaining in the other end of my county in what is rumored to be a dangerous neighborhood. Then there was hoss's and all near me closed I don't think I ever had a cream puff?I only read one science fiction book that was good, but never tried another one! So don't know about that one Happy birthday to your cousin!
