I love words. So this video about ‘word crimes’ by Weird Al Yankovic delighted me beyond words. I hope you enjoy it, too.
If you spend any time on Facebook, you’ve probably seen all sorts of quizzes. What type of princess are you? What country should you live in? If you were an apple, what kind would you be? That type of important information that my eternal salvation hangs upon.
I recently stumbled across a FB test that was (in my humble opinion) one of more significant importance. Or at least I thought so. In the beginning.
It was a career aptitude test. I’ve always wondered what I should be when I grow up.
Excited, I took the test. Here are the careers that said I was best suited for.
Administrative law judge
Judge (what’s the difference between this and an administrative law one, huh?)
heavy tractor-trailer truck driver
Industrial truck and tractor operator
Sheesh! What a wildly different types of careers — from a judge/correctional officer/jailer to a truck driver. Those aren’t even in the same ball park. And how in the world did a door-to-door salesman career sneak in?
I am wildly, ecstatically happy in my current career because I use technology and support technology in education. Somehow, I don’t think I’d have the same job satisfaction as a truck driver or a jailer!
Goes to show how valid those FB tests are anyway . . .
A friend who knows that my husband and I travel quite a bit, told me about the following video:
Isn’t that a hoot? That fella did a fabulous job on his movie.
What makes it especially funny to me is that back in April we spent the night in the Atlanta airport. Around midnight, an airport employee brought us a cot, blanket, and pillow. However, I couldn’t sleep.
So, my friend and I watched a movie on her iPad. Then, I took a long walk all the way from one end of the terminal to the other end.
As this fellow shows, you don’t need fancy-smancy equipment. He just used his iPhone. I’ve got one. I’ve also got a mini iPad.
Next time I spend the evening in the airport, I know what I’m going to do — make a video! Watch out Steven Spielberg and George Lucas!
I took piano lessons while I l was in grade school and junior high. My first teacher was a small elderly lady. My sister and I would ride the school bus to her house for our lessons.
Many times, her home smelled of fresh homemade bread that she had taken out of the oven just before we arrived. She would give me a piece to eat while my sister had her lesson and I waited for mine. It was whole-wheat bread and was as light and fluffy as a two-by-four. But I ate it anyway because I was usually famished.
Over the years, I’ve tried to improve my piano playing skill. While I have improved (some), it’s taken half a century!
I’m currently trying to learn how to play the organ. Getting my feet coordinated with my hands is like patting my head and rubbing my stomach. Almost beyond my capabilities . . .
Well. I just heard the most amazing song. By an amazing group of young men from Copenhagen. I think I’ll give up the piano and the organ and start playing the beer bottles!
See how amazing they are!
And, there’s this one.
