February The 29th

Today doesn't normally exist.

And Google informs me it's also Gioachino Rossini's birthday. Best known as the Google Doodle illustrates for The Barber Of Seville, which immediately suggests a Renaissance farce about marriages, affairs, mistaken identities and the like.

Of course, his Stabat Mater can also be found on the soundtrack to Hardware, so you can always play against type.
