Last week's "what I learned" was my 300th post, that seems like a lot of posts. What I Learned This Week:
- Fri. 11/15 - How to build shelves, lamps, and put it all together.
- Sat. 11/16 - Arsenic was once called Inheritance Powder because it was used so often to poison people! Also, the Amazon river starts in Peru.
- Sun. 11/17 - It's getting really hard to take photos in natural light; damn your winter and fog. There is a whole Wikipedia article about ties in sports.
- Mon. 11/18 - BotaBox wine is AMAZING! Who knew boxed wine could be so delightful!
- Tues. 11/19 - If you don't read directions and pay attention when someone is explaining something to you, it's not going to make any sense.
- Wed. 11/20 - There are giant otters in the Amazon that are the top predators of their ecosystem; watch out, they are ferocious.
- Thurs. 11/21 - If your car starts making really weird noises when you're accelerating, check to make sure you're in the right gear.
Around the Internets:
- Surprise, surprise, I am 66% left brain and 34% right brain. It's hard being logical so often!
- Totally Bonkers Awesome!
- I was leading a professional development workshop for teachers and casually talking about my love for pumpkin and one of my participants starts laughing because on the radio that morning the DJ stated that all white people love pumpkin, and being white, I just perpetuated the stereotype. As it was, the table consisted of all non-white ladies, who were in complete agreement about their neutrality towards pumpkin. But then, the same participant pointed out the love black people have sweet potatoes and the entire table got behind it. There was a lot of love for sweet potatoes! More often than not stereotypes don't hold true, but it's funny when a multicultural bunch can laugh about the ones playing out in front of them.
