Readers in Random Countries

I like to go back and check out the stats from my posts.  They are extremely modest when compared to other blogs but still kinda cool when you look at all the info behind whose reading (without actually knowing who's reading).  And there are some random countries that people read my blog in.  And I have no idea how they found my blog.  Although, I am hoping that its my cousing (Holla DJ!  You should get the wifey to read so I can be read in the Phillipines, lol ;~D) but if not, it will be left to my imagination....

Imagine thats its JK Rowling!  She saw on my FB page that she's one of my heroes and that HP has been read so many times in my house by the two of us that one of our books is falling apart and we have to replace it because the pages are falling out.  She saw one of my links and decided "Hey, I'm bored today.  What is one of my fans thinking?"  and found her way to my slice of unicorn butterfly pooping sparkley raindow universe.  And found that she liked it here!  And made the ulitmate decision to marry Albus Severus off to a beautiful American born witch named Jessica.  And they went on to have children, one of which was actually a Dark wizard, lured over to the Dark Arts by tales of what happens in the Department of Mysteries...and whose cousins have to hunt him down and convince him to repent!  Their story is told in a three book arc that sells millions and millions of books.  And a percentage is given to me (small, small but still) as the inspiration!!!

OR...well I have to go to class and frankly I can't imagine anything more awesome than that.  So I'm going to leave it at that.  And maybe jump in again tomorrow.  Cause I remembered that I like writing down whats in my head. ;~)

Learning....and then learning some more

 BeI don't know why, but I am always amazed at the different ways I can learn and the events that teach me.  I have learned when I was expected to, in a classroom setting or when trying something new.  Those are some of my favorite places and types of learning.  I know when I walk in that my brain will gain a new wrinkle and possible more useless facts to pull out of thin air to amaze others with what I know.  Sometimes I act like the kid from Jerry Maguire "Did you know a baby bunny is a kit?  That Six Flags is named that because its about the six countries that have been over Texas (that's a good one to pull out with someone who isn't from here)? That the guy from Dirty Dancing played Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast? (Something I did not know until today!)"

And now you get to laugh at me.  Its been so long since I blogged that I figured I'd come by and do a brain dump.  Which is when I found this lovely beginning to a blog.  Except I have no idea where I was going with it.  And I totally tried to pull it off and finish it so none of you would be the wiser.  But I didn't.  Cause I couldn't.  Which makes me a little sad because it read like a really good one!  Oh well.

Anywho...which is a website, did you know that?  You can go to and find phone numbers or find out who a phone number belongs to.  Its fabulous.  But I took another left again.  Got to be careful with those lefts or otherwise we'd just end up in a square.  And square's can be boring and box like.  Not like triangles, which can make for a great base or fill up a corner.  Or diamonds, which hello, are a girls best friend.  And yes, I am totally distractable and there is a reason why Aleisa is very naturally like Dori from Finding a butterfly.

To finish up, I learned today that the President is a citizen. glad that was finally cleared up.  Now we can focus in on what kind of underwear he likes or maybe even....gasp...does he wear white socks?  Or black socks?  Or socks?  Which means he has stinky feet!  Or maybe we could think about our budget.  Or education and how we are at the bottom of the totem poll in regards to the industrial world.  Countries I've never even heard of before are better educated than we are.  And I bet their kids know where the United States is on a map.  Granted, we're like, totally huge and easy to find.  But still.  Do you know which country in Europe is which?  And no, Italy and England don't count.  A big ol boot and an island are gimmes.  And yes, I realized I just called myself a tad bit unlearned.  Shocking I know.  But there it is.  Now I'll have to go find some really cool looking almanac and find those countries.  Or I could just challenge you to a game of Trivial Pursuit or Jeopardy.  Either way....
