Fifteen Fun Facts

No it's not a meme... it 's just me trying desperately to find something to blog about that won't make me want to cry or slam things around. Not that I really have a lot to cry or slam about but I'm just having a sort of emotionally unstable day... so I'm going to list fifteen fun facts about anything that comes to mind.

1. FIRST: For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology - You've got to love an organization that uses robots battles and lego building competitions to "To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes."

2. Fiesta!: A party. Preferably with Fajitas and Margaritas. I could really use a fiesta right now.

3. Friendly's : A legendary ice cream shop in Massachusetts.. and other Eastern states... well, legendary if you live in my house. My husband is convinced that there is no Milkshake that can substitute for a genuine Friendly's Fribble and he has spent many years trying to create a Fribble in our not so friendly kitchen.

4. Forest: I live in a temperate rain forest. Uh, to be more honest, I live in what used to be a temperate rain forest but is now a barren subdivision with three requisite trees per house. The forest waits just beyond the fences and regularly tries to reclaim any unprotected land. You know what else lives in a temperate rain forest? Banana Slugs!

5. Feathers tickle my fancy...

6. Fleas bite

7. Fruit bats are totally cool but I don't want them in my backyard. They need to stay in the forest with the foxes, raccoons and BANANA SLUGS.

8. Flitter: This is what butterflies do. I like butterflies and will plant flowers to attract them if I ever actually plant anything in my backyard... (don't tell the forest I haven't landscaped yet)

9. Fusion: Jazz, Food, Cold... not necessarily in that order

10. Frustration caused me to yell at my husband a few minutes ago because I'm TRYING TO WRITE AND HE'S BEING TOO NOISY.

11. Feist: I'm Sorry, Mushaboom, My Moon My Man.... Lovely

12. Free : Federal Resources for Educational Excellence. This is a great place to look for neat things to teach your kids... or yourself.

13. Fred Astaire: Just because...

14. Forts, especially tree forts have always excited me. Someday I'm going to vacation here.

15. For Sure! Fifteen words that start with F and not a single curse among them. Aren't you proud of me?

I'm proud of you. And I love tree forts, too. There is an awesome hotel in Costa Rica that is solely built in rainforest trees. It looks amazing.

Hope today is a better day...

Good job Gina! And Friendly's? Are you kidding me? lol My kids love that place. I thought by the time we reached adult-hood, Friendly's no longer captivated us any more. Apparently not! lol

Karen MEG said...

Very impressed with those fifteen! And here you were thinking you had nothing to post about LOL!

Heidi, the picture is from the hotel in Costa Rica. :-) I'm going there someday!

Nic, nope, not kidding about Friendly's. I think since he moved from Boston when he was 18 he never completely grew out of it.
