We Make Learning Fun!

We Make Learning Fun!

I really have to brush up on my state capitals. It's sad that I can place Estonia on a map but can't remember in what city Missouri keeps its government, even if it is 4 in the morning.

Buffalo Rising now links me on their blog. It's a great site but I wonder how they found me. Maybe it's because I link them? I lack neither the know-how to figure this one out or the desire.

I checked out an audiobook of Sarah Vowell's The Partly Cloudy Patriot the other day and highly recommend it. It's about a sarcastic woman who goes to national landmarks for fun, abhors swimming, considers historical research enthralling, speaks in a relatively monotone voice, and knows a lot about old maps. For the life of me I can't figure out why I like it so much.

Today I folded one of my dollar bills into a shirt, like this. It's still in my wallet. I don't know if I should try spending it like that. Maybe I should go to Goodwill and buy a shirt with it.

Jefferson City, my good friend.

I kick ASS at state capitals, but I only know the Western Hemisphere and Western Europe's geography.

Bonus: I can name all the Canadian provinces in order from East to West bc I know a cheesy song about it!
