What were you doing at 11:11:11 on 11/11/11?

I am sure people will be asking you this question for years to come. It will only happen once in our life time so I would love to know what you were doing at this moment in time when the clocks struck 11:11:11: on the 11/11/11.

I was in the middle of blowing up some strange animal shaped balloons for my wife’s birthday at the time. As the time drew closer to the 11:11:11 moment I probably took the strangest decision ever and decided to capture the moment on my PC! So there I sat with my PC clock open and fingers poised over CTRL-PRTSC.

11:11:11 on 11/11/11

I then opened Twitter to see what others were doing on this date and time and saw a great Tweet from Pan Aveyard, who made his 11111th tweet at the precise moment and here it is:

11111th Tweet at 11:11:11 on 11/11/11

So what were you doing at 11:11:11 on 11/11/11 and did you make a wish?



  1. You know, I never even thought about it. I had the news on the radio so stopped for 2 mins silence. Then continued to try promote my latest item on Etsy, how bad is that? wont really go down in the history books.

    Wishing I had known to make a wish too!

    Hope Mrs Sphangle had a lovely birthday.

  2. Nothing wrong with promoting your items at the time and I am sure there will be many more occasions to make wishes :)

    Mrs Shpangle had a lovely birthday and absolutely loves her new bag...she has already discarded here old bag and moved a mountain of items into her lovely new one!


  3. I just came across this in a Google search.
    I still remember that tweet :)

    1. Brilliant it was you have any more planned!
