TODAY IS RACE YOUR MOUSE AROUND THE ICONS DAY
It’s almost unresistable – when your computer is slow to load, and when you’re waiting for something to happen, you can’t resist the urge to play with the mouse and the cursor.
Whether you’re procrastinating, plain bored or it’s actually one of your favourite sporting activities (if so, you should probably re-evaluate a few things… just saying), then this day is your day to go nuts.
Race Your Mouse Around The Icons Day embraces this, and encourages you to go crazy with your cursor!
