Back once again: NABLOPOMO

Just when you thought I'd ditched NaBloPoMo after having that two-months-straight bloggage go on, here I come again!

For those unfamiliar, NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month. It's a spin-off of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), but instead of writing one 50k-workd novel for one month straight, you have to write a blog entry for each day of the month—and this happens every month! You get to choose which month to join, and there is no word limit or count to reach. Each month also comes with its own theme, which you can choose to write about.

The Theme of the Month is Heroes.
Can somebody say, destiny? Jai ho! XD

I can't say that I'll stick to the theme, but I can stick it in every now and again.

You can view all the other June 2009 participants at the NaBloPoMo June 2009 Blogroll.

While going through the blogroll, I came across a blog that listed a bunch of odd little things celebrated in June. Oooh, this'll make this month even MORE interesting! Allow me to repost it here:
