This Open Thread Contains A Once-In-A-Blue-Moon Opportunity To Say Something Completely Scandalous

You won't get another one of these rare chances until 2018, so use this one unwisely!

Because I love you far too much, no blue moon jokes or puns will appear in this intro, just some genuine wonder, and a request for you to snap some not-actually-blue moon photos and add them to this thread throughout the weekend.

AND an invitation (order!) to do something really nice for yourself this weekend, knowing that you can say, "Well, I just drink it/indulge in that/splurge this way/spend on myself/go out with her/kiss a stranger/etc once in a blue moon," and be telling the complete truth. What would that rare, special, too infrequent treat to yourself entail right now? Tell us below please, if you would.

If you're interested, here's a video by NASA (where my smart stepdad works! Comment if you're reading this, Petey! And sound smart to prove my assertion!) about why we're getting a second full moon in a single month. If you're not interested in any of that lunarness, you can pounce (catlike!) onto one of these random questions or completely ignore them (also catlike!) and say whatever you please, however you please, in the thread below. To any readers who are new here -- there's no wrong way to join in YOUR open thread!
