Book Challenge

Grab the nearest book.

* Open the book to page 56.

* Find the fifth sentence.

* Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your blog along with these instructions.

* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

I grabbed Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer. I am still in the process of reading it (I just don't seem to have a lot of extra time).

"I don't think you were in any danger."
"I told you I didn't want to fight with Charlie."
"Nobody said you had to."

I am really enjoying this series of books. I think it was originally written for teens, but hey, Harry Potter was initially a book intended for children and I love them. I still need to watch the movie Twilight (the first book in the series). It will be released on DVD on March 21, 2009.

Check out Bits of Life, Scrapbooking and Cooking. This entry was inspired by her post and her entry is a recipe for Sour Cream-Pineapple Muffins.

Can You Tell Me How To Get.... to get to Sesame Street.

I love Sesame Street. I used to watch it all of the time when I was younger. Heck, I would watch it now but I am not around when it is on...maybe I should Tivo it. Anyway, follow the link and take the quiz to find out which Sesame Street Character you are...I am Bert.
P.S. I do not have a bottle cap collection.

You Are Bert

Extremely serious and a little eccentric, people find you loveable - even if you don't love them!

You are usually feeling: Logical - you rarely let your emotions rule you

You are famous for: Being smart, a total neat freak, and maybe just a little evil

How you life your life: With passion, even if your odd passions (like bottle caps and pigeons) are baffling to others

For All of the Scrubs Fans...

Ever wonder which Scrubs character you might be? Take a quiz and find out. Thanks to the soon to be birthday girl, Nicole, for the link. I must be honest and say that I don't really watch the show, but a lot of people that I know do. I am looking for a new show to watch since one of the three that I follow only has three episodes left...this may be the replacement. I did watch part of Grey's Anatomy last night and it was pretty good. I am thinking about watching the first season...hmm if I had it now I might start watching. It is probably a good thing that I don't, I need to study. On a totally different wave length...I had a practical today for Infant and Child Development. It was the first group practical that I have ever taken and I must say that it was pretty relaxed. I administered the Intelligence Test. I hope that our group passed. If we didn't then we each have to repeat the entire practical individually, which also means that we each need our own patient by next Monday, when the repeat will occur. So, hopefully we passed since I have an allergy testing session scheduled for Monday...sounds like fun...maybe I would rather do the practical again ;) Well, enough stalling, I should probably get back to studying for my strab exam.

What European City Do You Belong In?

You Belong in Dublin
Friendly and down to earth, you want to enjoy Europe without snobbery or pretensions.
You're the perfect person to go wild on a pub crawl... or enjoy a quiet bike ride through the old part of town.

Okay, this is actually kind of funny since Gabe and I just visited Dublin in February. Check out the link and feel free to post your results :)

Chocolate Math

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)
2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
3. Add 5
4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator.
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756 ....If you haven't, add 1755.
6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number.

The first digit of this was your original number (i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are...YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

You could change the "Chocolate" to anything that you how many times you actually attend class in a week. ;) Anyway about it, it is still a cool use of math. Impress your friends. :) Thanks to Hershie for sending this to me.
