With mere moments before my next victim knocks on my studio door, I need to attend to several small details.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRACE!
Since I'm typing this on Beelzebub's very new Apple computer and staring at the ginormous screen of Overcompensation, I cannot link to her blog. But go over and find The Friday Chef, and wish her a Happy Birthday. 29 Never looked so good!! I'm sure I'll enjoy it when my time comes as well. May you have a great day, a wonderful year, and lots of stories to tell. *Mwah*
NOT-QUITE 50 STATES
The good news is we've had a slight reprive in learning all 50 states. Now we're down to Northeast Region. *Phew* !! That means I'm good on Maine, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. The bad news? They have to know State Capitols as well. DOH.
BETWEEN THE LIONS
A sign spotted today in Scottish college country (this is in mid-Michigan, mind you) promoting the college climbing club:
While being chased by a lion you find yourself
cornered between the ferocious lion and steep
rock walls--your only way to escape is up.
Learn the skills of survival Monday night at 10
at the climbing wall.
WE COULD ESCAPE. COULD YOU?
Written in pencil at the bottom of the page was one student's answer:
I'd just shoot the lion
Although I'm fairly certain that the lion population (not to mention the steep rock wall population) is way, way down, I thought the answer was absolutely priceless. I kept the sign.
Starts tonight. I'm NOT ready. I have 1/2 hour to scour the web and find out what's going on.
