Happy FPS Day!

       I wanted to post something else today, but I can't because ... Do you know what day it is today?? I'm pretty sure you don't. And I wouldn't have known either if it weren't for Ashley (so thanks, Ashley!!) but Ashley does in fact exist and she did in fact find something out and she did in fact share that information with me and the big news in fact is that ... today is FPS Day!! Yup, today is For Pete's Sake Day, an actual For Pete's Sake 'holiday'. Ha.


      I already explained the name of my blog here, but I've never said anything about my alias - Peet. My real name is Petra but for several reasons I didn't want to use it and since my boyfriend lovingly calls me Pero, which is a male version of Petra in Slovene (something like Pete), and I love it when women have male names (Dylan is my favorite female name, for example), I decided to change Pero to Pete and Pete to Peet. Just some letter shuffling because, you know, every day I'm shuffling anyway so it made sense. But back to FPS Day.
      Rihanna had to sell x million records and have x number of hit singles before they dedicated a day, Rihanna Day, to her in Barbados, while I didn't have to do anything basically and I already have my own day. How cool is that?? Anyhow, all jokes aside, I want to wish you all a happy FPS Day. Now go out and celebrate it! If you don't know how, you can read all about it here

  4. It's so great!!! Your blog has it's own day. It's something really nice hahaha!
    I can't believe you didn't know this before!

    So... Petra right? I couldn't imagine that was your real name. I like it, it's different. It reminds me one famous woman in my city, she was called Petronila an I loved it when i was young XD

    I didn't like "The wolf" because i tthought there was too much free sex and drugs (yes, how can i thing drugs and sex can be too much? Am I sick? haha)
    The point is that people is not happy about money and speculation, and i think this wasn't the perfect moment to make this movie. I liked Blue Jasmine a lot more because it was made from another point of view, more delicate, more considerate. Of course, i can't say anything categorical (is this the correct word?) because i didn't end the movie but I saw more than a half and i thought i was wasting my time.
    I didn't know Slovenia is getting exposure. Of course, I like that!! =)

Basically, all Fashion Weeks will be dedicated to us and singers will preform in our name (shout out to Riri). Anyways, you're great, always will, always have been, happy (birthday?!) day to Peet's Sake!! Whoop whoop.

  10. I had no idea a day like that even existed but it definitely was a clever move to alter it like that ;) okay, I also didn't know about Rihanna's day but hey, I'm not her fan anyway so that's only normal. when it comes to your real name it reminded me of my childhood. I had a Barbie-like doll called Petra and I loved the name and wanted it to be my own name, haha. I also wanted Melanie, Emma or Victoria because of the Spice Girls (:D). today I luckily love my own name. oh and happy "your" day then!

  15. First of all apologies I've been away from your blog this week - don't ask. Second of all OMG I genuinely thought your name was Peet, I thought it may be short for something, but never really questioned it. I love the name Petra babes and I'm so pleased I now know your real name - you don't look like a Petra, but that's what makes you all the more interesting.

    Anyway Petra, enjoy your special day and the weekend x
