Wow, I just realized that the frequency of my blog rounds is waning.
With so much going on these days at home and work - AND with Spring finally arriving, I'm finding less and less "free" time to be stopping by all the other fine works you fabulous people are producing. And now that Charli is starting her new job soon, I'll be picking up some extra responsibilities around the old homestead as well.
Bottom line, I'll still be writing and reading your stuff on my feed reader on a regular basis, but probably not stopping by as often as I used to. I understand that it will probably cost me some readers in the long run, but life is all about balance - and right now this is how it's playing out for me. Hopefully you'll still love me in the morning.
All righty then... now that I've blathered on about quality writing and such, here's a couple of nonPulitzer-winning items I thought were kind of cool.
This quiz takes you through 25 questions and tests your powers of observation of everyday things (note: may only work in IE).
I answered 19 of 25 correct - the first time, and 25 of 25 correct my second try. See how good my powers of observation are?
And this site lets you key in your first and last names and then calculates how many other people in the US have the same name. VERY important stuff.
- There are 1,979 other people with the same name as mine. And I thought I was so unique.
- There are 510 people named George Bush. Somebody should send them sympathy cards.
- There are 6 people named Jesus Christ! Which is probably a good thing. At this point I don't think just one of him is going to cut it.
But most importantly, check this out...
