As you can see on the countdown timer on my right sidebar, there’s hardly more than a week until June 1, the traditional beginning of Tube Top Month. I’ve celebrated Tube Top Month in my blog for five years now, and it’s caught on to become a city-wide and even a national and international celebration. It’s an attempt to educate the public about the greatest item ever made in women’s fashion – the tube top. For the entire month, every post I do will have a pic of a tube top, or a link to a pic of a tube top, or a mention of tube tops no matter how irrelevant tube tops are to the rest of the post.
However, I’m thinking about starting Tube Top Month early this year. June 1 is a rather depressing back-to-work Tuesday this year, the end of a long Memorial Day weekend. Seems like it would make more sense to start Tube Top Month at 5 PM on Friday, May 28, so we can include that beautiful party weekend. In either case it would end on June 30.
What do you think? I’m going to poll a few people tonight at Pint Nite, and I’ve also asked the question on my Facebook Wall. Should I be a traditionalist about the date? Or is Tube Top Month all about having as much fun as possible?
