One of those crazy answer the question things...

USING ONLY SONG NAMES FROM ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions...

Pick Your Artist: MICHAEL BUBLE’
Are you male or female: YOU DON’T KNOW ME?
Describe yourself: FEELIN’ GOOD
How do you feel about yourself: I’VE GOT THE WORLD ON A STRING
Describe where you currently live: HOME
If you could go anywhere, where would you go: COME FLY WITH ME
Your best friend is: ALWAYS ON MY MIND
Your favorite color is: “ORANGE” COLORED SKY (not my favorite color – but it is one of his songs…)
You know that: THE BEST IS YET TO COME
What's the weather like: : A FOGGY DAY IN LONDON TOWN
If your life was a tv show, what would it be called: DREAM A LITTLE DREAM
What is life to you: EVERYTHING
What is the best advice you have to give: TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS
If you could change your name, what would it be: MACK THE KNIFE

Silly - yes. But I'd like to see what you can come up with. Let me know.

Festivus for the rest of us...

No, I'm not confused about the date on the calendar. And no, it's not December 23. BUT, I failed to post about this during December and came across these today, so I figured "better late than never"! If you have known me long, you KNOW that I am a major Seinfeld fan. Love that show! I love all their little catch phrases and use a lot of them regularly (as most fans do).

For those Seinfeld fan's out there you may recognize my post title. One of my all time favorite episodes! Just for the fun of it, try Googling "festivus". You will be surprised at all of the hits. It so happens I have some fellow Seinfeld fan's at work. Yippee! So, for our "Christmas" party this year we decided to call it a Festivus celebration (even though we didn't have it on December 23). Of couse we had to have shirts...
Ahh but that's not the end of it. We picked out some of our favorite lines from that particular show for the back of our shirts.

How I miss that show. Thank goodness for re-runs because "These pretzels are making me thirsty!". Later.

Lessons learned...


Just a quick note today. I went to a "podcasting" class today at the 8th Floor in Tulsa. It was fun. We are looking at podcasting for our classroom websites at school and seeing if it would be a workable tool that our teachers can use.

Today's class concerned mostly audio podcasts. We had the chance to make one in class. Basically it is simply recording your voice and saving it to a file that is posted to the web. I think that will only have limited use for what we have in mind. But fun all the same and very easy to do. But you know what - I think we all have problems listening to our own voices. Yikes! I thought to myself - do I really sound like that? Oh I know, we are from Oklahoma after all and that okie twang just comes right through.

So look out blog readers...I might throw something unusual on here in the near future and try out some of my new mad skills.
