Waiting….

…. and not for Godot this time. … at least I hope not.

Day 3 of this posting every day stuff and I’m already getting a bit bored with it.  I really don’t have that much to say. I’m waiting for the heating/cooling repairman.  Its cold in here today.  Its so cold its snowing!  Cool – look you can make the snow move around when you move your mouse over it.  Okay, so I’m easily amused…. It is cold but it is livable.  Its not like I’m in Minnesota (about 50 degrees outside and in).  But it kind of makes you not want to do anything other than leave the house which I can’t cause I’m waiting for the repairman.  It makes me realize just how lucky I am.  So many people don’t have shelter or heat or warm clothes or enough food not only in far off corners in the world but right where we live.  We take for granted so much and complain bitterly about our jobs, the traffic, the Christmas rush.  There are so many people in the U.S. and abroad who would be thrilled to have a job, be stuck in a car (not everyone has that luxury and it is a luxury) in traffic or have enough money to go out Christmas shopping and be rushing around to buy presents for loved ones.

Sorry for the sermon, its aimed more at me than you (whoever you may be).  I’ll make it up to you – here’s a video of Dean Martin singing Its a Marshmallow World.  I love the version of him and Frank singing this but this, well, this you can’t beat – Dean with a cigarette in his hand singing the song with less than heartfelt sentiments.  I can almost hear him thinking – is it over yet, roll commercial, oh geez more lyrics on that teleprompter ….

Smarty Pants Dance, Smarty Pants Dance

I saw this video on ABC’s Funniest Videos show.  This child is I think they said two years old and knows her states plus she does the best smarty-pants dance I’ve seen.  I may have to start doing the smarty-pants dance whenver I do something of note… I bet my co-workers will be thrilled!

It kind of makes you wonder, why all children don’t learn geography at this age – maybe cause no one is teaching them – it could also be that Lola is exceptionally geographically gifted… oh well, its back to the online geography tests for me CLICK p.s. I got 236 this time!  woo hoo! Here goes my smarty-pants dance, smarty-pants dance….

All that rice made me thirsty…

You know with all that free rice we’ve been donating by improving our vocabulary – there must be people in need of water to wash the rice, cook the rice and, of course, to drink. Here’s a geography game that is built on the same premise as freerice.  I donated 181 cups of water on my first run – I intend to go back and try again to improve my geo-skills – in case the Amazing Race should ever call.
Give it a try.

Updated:  second go round got to 230 – all right, I hear ya, I need to go back to work on items for the Etsy store or finishing one of the 65 projects I’ve got waiting for completion and stop playing games on line …..
