Fun stuff

We will be away for a family reunion for the next few days. Here is some fun stuff to tide you over until my return.

Meme 1

Dr. Rob tagged me for the Eight Things Meme. I have done this one (or similar ones several times) and they can be found here or here. I am doing this for Dr. Rob because he was kind enough to answer a question that I asked him on his blog.

Fun Links

Check out these very detailed and amazing balloon sculptures.

Here is an awesome way to keep the kids or cat from unrolling your yarn while you are knitting.

Can you tell the difference between a computer programmer and a cannibal?

This is one of my favorite time passing games. It is so simple yet filled with mind bending strategy.

Who has not wanted to do this?

Have you wondered how many midsized cars there are in an elephant?

If you like Monte Python this is for you. Here is my personal favorite, I seriously have watched it about five times in the last three days. Someone had waay too much time on their hands.
