Just a reminder that today is National Pancake Day, a should-be-sanctioned holiday that is already more important than Presidents' Day and Arbor Day combined. The International House of Pancakes started doling out free shortstacks this morning at 7, and they're not stopping until 10 tonight. 'Course, IHOP hopes that in giving you a free meal, you'll agree to donate to the Childrens' Miracle Network, a nonprofit that assists children's hospitals. But of course, you could just dine and dash, and do it legally this time, unlike when you were a teenager and hopped up on MGD. Anyway, if you're feeling like dousing something in blueberry syrup today besides your spouse, you've still got time.
