Throw A 9/9/09 Party!

by Chiara Atik · September 9, 2009

    Today is the ninth day of the ninth month of the ninth year of the century. So, it's pretty obvious you should throw a party. And also because you're probably a little depressed, because summer is over and it's gray outside and it's only Wednesday and the beginning of next summer is nine long months away, so why not celebrate a little bit?  Click below for our tips on how to throw the best 9/9/09 party in history!


    Invite nine friends over. Come on, you have nine friends, right?

    Mix a drink with no fewer than 9 ingredients. This will no doubt be pretty potent.

    Have nine rounds of said drink.

    At this point you will probably be feeling pretty ready for a game of 9 Minutes In Heaven.

    Wasn't that fun? How about a round of "99 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall"?

    All your guests are pretty tipsy, right? Now is the time to dazzle them with geeky math facts! For example: 9/9/09 falls on a WEDNESDAY in SEPTEMBER....and both of those words have 9 letters! Amazing!

    Also, it's the 252nd day of the year. 2+5+2 equals, you guessed it, 9!

    Is it 9:00 pm yet? In that case, Republican politicians want you to sign on to Twitter for "the largest Twitter Tea Party ever". You'll be too drunk to notice that the concept of a Twitter Tea Party doesn't make any sense whatsoever!

    You should be done Twittering by 9:09 (and, really, it shouldn't even take nine minutes...), so at that point it'll be a good time to turn on some Beatles music; their full music collection comes out today, digitally remastered and everything!

    Did all that groovy music make you feel contemplative? Then how about sharing a personal story with Matthias Klucker, who is using this day to collect stories from around the world and compiling them to make "A Day In The Life Of The Planet".

    You're feeling soooooooo good now, right? Why not do something crazy? Like really crazy? Like...go get married crazy? 9 is a lucky number, and in Las Vegas you can get married for $99.09...
