Never mind that NEG cover, Girls Nite Out is Friday

NEG May 2012 cover Rob Schanilec, By All Means Graphics Girls Nite Out
When the May 2012 issue of the Northfield Entertainment Guide (PDF) hit the streets last week, I noticed a typo on the cover. "GIRLS NITE OUT Saturday, May 11" says the text. Of course, May 11th (tomorrow) is Friday.  I had the pleasure yesterday of informing NEG publisher Rob Schanilec (By All Means Graphics) about it. He groaned, "That’s not a typo. I would call that an error."

I could empathize. Last week when I blogged the flyer for the mountain bike racing team information night at the high school, I put ‘Wednesday’ instead of ‘Tuesday.’  Judy Becker, Facilities Scheduler at Community Ed, alerted me to the error.  I fixed the flyer and the blog entry and thanked her.  A few minutes later, she alerted me again. "Tuesday is the 15th, not the 17th. Are you looking at an April calendar?" Um, no, I wasn’t.  I thought I heard her say, "Well then, what are you smoking?"

For all the GNO details, see Jessica Paxton’s blog post on  Don’t Miss the 6th Annual Girls Nite Out — this Friday, May 11! You can also follow Girls Nite Out on Facebook.

See my 2009, 2008, and 2007 photo albums for a bit of GNO flavor.

    Since coming to my adopted country 16 years ago I have observed, amongst other things, that not putting the day with the date is both common and peculiar to Northfield (MN? USA?).

    Happens to me a lot. So much that my lovely wife had to coin a term for it: she says I have datelexia.
