States & Sprinklers

You ever have those know the ones when you suddenly realize how uneducated you are and even though you thought you knew the stuff that mattered, and all of a sudden the stuff that never mattered does? Yep, I had one of those. Jamie sent me this real funny game. It has a map of the United States, and you just have to click and drag the names of the states to where they belong. So, I did this "special school" in elementary school, and I never even memorized the states. I knew I didn't know them all, and I knew I struggled with the midwest, but OH MAN! I had NO clue I was as clueless as I was. I seriously didn't even know where Minnesota was. I can't for the life of me remember which one is Wisconsin and which is Michigan. The real shocker though, was when I couldn't even find Montana, I really thought I knew the western states. Ouch! Anyway, if you're bored or want to find out how smart you really are, here's the link:

This morning as I was walking down the street to my office, the neighbors' sprinklers were on - not uncommon. The cool part was the birds that were just chillin' in the sprinklers. Yes, that's right, quail running through the sprinklers. They'll all get in a big group, and go in. Then they'd all fly out at the same time and scatter. That's cool and I don't care who you are. I love things like that.

In all it's been a good/exhausting week.


  1. Seriously, when you do the states thing it makes you feel stupid. But then I got them all and now I feel smart, I can even get almost all the capitols now! :) I'll have to write a blog about that on mine too since I can't think of anything else to write :)

  2. im scared to do the states thing!! lol Dannon is our dog :)
