A Delicious Summertime Treat!

Next summer, when it's sweltering outside, it's time to try a tasty new treat! Bloodsicles, with all the platelet-y goodness of blood! Just kidding. The lions at the National Zoo in Washington DC, however, get a giant hunk of frozen cow blood and ice so that they can enrich themselves by pretending its a real cow (but aren't real cows, um, not ice?) and they can also just lick at it. I really want to go there and see it in action, but my summer's already packed. Which is odd, seeing as it's only late September/early October.
If you want to go ahead and try one, I won't judge.

Remote Control HUMANS?

Yes, I'm back, ready to prove that you learn more than just the names of your bones in health class. Inside your ears, there are three tubes full of liquid that help tell your body if you are moving, giving you your balance. The Chinese have used these tube to invent REMOTE CONTROL PEOPLE. You put a pair of special headphones on, and they send signals that can move the liquids inside the tubes to make you feel off-balance. To keep in balance, you instinctively walk in the direction they want you to! Supposedly, they'll be using it to relieve dizziness, but I don't really trust that. Don't buy headphones from strangers.

Hello, Irregulars!

As a heads up, I might not be posting much in the next two months, because my schedule is BUSY. I have play practice almost every day, even though I only have eight (I counted them) lines and die within the first scene. It's going to be great. I also have HOMEWORK, which includes English. This year's theme seems to be people running around in the wilderness and killing each other, as that's what our first two stories (and rumor has it our fourth story) are about. The third has something to do with a cask. So, yeah, I'm not going on any 'educational trips' that relate to our curriculum any time soon.
...Yeah. But if I find anything cool, I'll try to schedule you in for, say, next week?

This is just STRANGE

It seems there's a new trend that follows the painted cat phenomenom. Botox treatments are now available for dogs. I wasn't aware that dogs got wrinkles, unless you count pugs, bulldogs and sharpeis. But they're supposed to have wrinkles. Which would make it a little obvious that they weren't all natural. I'm not even going to look for a picture on this one.

Happy Emma M. Nutt Day!

Today is Emma M. Nutt day, dedicated to the first woman telephone operator on September first, 1878. She worked at it for 33 years. Also, tomorrow is (Unofficially) Nat'l Beheading Day. I also found these on the holiday site:

They are called Qwiggle Jello Molds and I want some.
