November 15, 2010 is official “I Love to Write Day.” In honor of the occasion, I’m going to spend the day writing. (Granted, I do that most days, but I’ll pretend today is special.) In fact, I intend to try and write in at least three different disciplines: business, fiction, and blogging.
One down, two to go.
Do you have something to write today? If not, make something up! It’s always good to get some new words on a page. If you do (or if you think quickly) tell me what you’re writing in the comments!
For those of you who don’t write, today is also official Bundt Pan Day. The term bundt (pronounced “bunt”) may have originated from the German buntkuchen, a kind of coffee cake, though the ring-shaped baking pans apparently came from Austria and Hungary as well. The original ceramic and cast-iron pans were copied and mass-produced by Nordic Ware, which popularized and trademarked the term “Bundt Pan” in the United States.
Bundt cakes really took off in the United States following the humble dessert’s second-place finish in the 1966 Pillsbury Bake-Off – after which Pillsbury licensed the “Bundt” trademark for use with a line of cake mixes.
The rest, as they say, is lemon-or-chocolate flavored history.
