Stranger Danger! Stranger Danger!

Do certain foods give off radiation (other than their smells when they rot?) What kind of secret allergens live inside the rug and your carpets? We live in a time when people are afraid of everything around them. It doesn't help that there are videos of people doing daredevil stunts that I certainly could not replicate at my level. The only stunt I think I could replicate is the hand-between-the-leg dance in "Gangam Style."

The End of the Wo- NO

We have probably heard over a million times that the world will end on December 21, 2012. While it is true that the Mayan calendar ends on that day, there is no mention of the end of the world. The Mayans also did not have leap years, so the calendar would already be finished. It looks like we will have Christmas after all. But since Hostess, the company that makes food that could survive the supposed apocalypse, is out of business, it sure seems like the end of the world.

World Domination!

Disney is the proud owner of ABC, ESPN, Touchstone, Pixar and, more recently, Marvel and Lucasfilms. Makes you wonder what companies they could purchase next.

Christmas Already?

On campus, and in every K-Mart and Wal-Mart I bet, they're setting up holiday decorations. I know it's a bit early, but I want to share a few holiday tips with you.
  • Even with a big thick coat and thick gloves and hats, you can still feel cold. Keep moving, the energy your body gives will keep you warm.
  • If you make a snowball while wearing mittens, carefully remove the snowball before throwing, as snow tends to stick to cloth in cold weather. 
  • Today there are string lights that make it possible so that when one light goes out, the rest do not go out.
  • Most importantly, never, ever, ever, eat a candy cane before brushing your teeth. Believe me, I know what that feels like.

Star Mouse

Ever since George Lucas sold Lucasfilm and Star Wars to the Walt Disney Company, the internet has been abuzz with videos, art, and news articles of the possible "relationships" with the characters. Actually, I think it began a little bit after Lucas let Disneyland build "Star Tours." There will be three more movies, and only time will tell if they will be as successful as the older films.

Try Me! II

I see that some of you have accepted my challenge from my blog "Try Me!" (Oct. 25) You shared some quotes of famous characters. I'm going to take another step and try to identify characters by their dress/appearance, or even color scheme. Ready?

Happy Halloween!

I made it through another Halloween night. I have had Thriller and Ghostbusters stuck in my head all day (new music mix?) I also helped Mom with our church Trunk-or-Treat dressed as a cowboy. And now I will decorate my blog for Christmas.
