A Smorgasbord of Fun #1

Here are some random fun things for you all to enjoy!

1. Mad Libs- Online!

Go to http://www.eduplace.com/tales/ and fill in the blanks- Then enjoy your Mad Lib!  Or send a link to a friend and see what they come up with!

2. Soupy George

Don’t know why this video and song is so fun and funny- but it is and that’s all I need to know.

3. Number Guessing

This is weird, and I guess some could say wrong, but give it a try for fun.

Have a friend think of a number, then take their thumb or finger.  Smoosh the tips or fronts of the digits and look as it goes from light to red and back and forth– don’t force it, but eventually, you can/might/should see a number.  Give it a go and see if it works.  If it doesn’t, it’s still fun to see if you can see a number!  (Beware- 8 and 0 look alike)

4. Baylor Guys

I knew some of the original founders of this website– they make fun of all things Baylor, still with a love for our school.  Sometimes they’re great, sometimes they’re pretty dull.  But over all, they’re pretty fun.  http://baylorguys.com/

5. Woot.com

If you check out Woot.com daily, you will find their special deals on shirts, wine, kids items, home items, etc.  Their motto is One Day, One Deal.  After the clock hits 11:59:59, your opportunity runs out.  They have some pretty cool items on there sometimes, including t-shirts with Doctor Who and Lost references (and who couldn’t resist one of those anyway?) http://www.woot.com/

6. The Others

Speaking of Lost, this band is a Lost Tribute Band who performs songs based on episodes of the hit TV show LOST.  With more than 60 songs they have styles ranging from singer-songwriter, rock, island-feel, and poppy-pop.  If you love LOST, or just find the whole LOST obsession thing ridiculous, listen to one of their songs.  http://theotherslostband.com/mp3s.php

7. Gummy Bears

Gummy Bears are quite scrumptious, but you haven’t truly enjoyed them yet.  Some people eat them plain, some people put them in their ice cream– but nobody goes the proper route.  You see, gummy bears consist of sugar crystals encased in gelatin.  The gelatin is not that great by itself– you need that sugar.  And to really enjoy the flavor, all you have to do is heat the bears up!  Pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds or so, and then give em a little time to cool off.  Then, while they are still slimy and gooey, pop those suckers in your mouth!  Delicious.  Absolutely delicious!

8. Space Jam

If you want to see a really old website- you have to check this out.  Warner Bros. created a Space Jam website back in 1996– and they left it out there, untouched by the changing technology.  It’s quite fun to see an old school, 90s style site still out there on the interwebs.  http://www2.warnerbros.com/spacejam/movie/jam.htm

9. Pixar Vs. DreamWorks

Finally, here’s a critique of Pixar movies vs. DreamWorks movies.  Saw it years ago and it has stuck with me

Anyway, random things from a random guy.  Enjoy!
