Happy 123456789 Day!

In just a few minutes, the time will be 12:34:56 and the date will be 07/08/09.* This is only going to happen once so we figure it's news worthy enough to make the site on a slow Friday.

So, what are/were you doing when the clocks read 123456789? Let us know in the comments section below! If you missed it, well, don't worry, you didn't miss much. Just the time really.

Screenshots at the ready, everyone . . .

*Note: We're going by ET here, so if you're in another time zone where this hasn't happened yet, consider this article a sticky note. Set your alarms now!

    I'm Canadian and it's more common here to go with the dd/mm/yy format. :)
