03.03.16 – End of Day Notes

What I did today: Slept! Yes, I have finally managed to get some sleep. Six hours last night and an additional three this evening. I also finished all of my writing projects for the day, read some emails, and read some posts for challenges. And slept! How’d that happen? *laughs* I also signed up for this: Commun.it so far it has been a great help. And, it snowed today so I got to watch the snow and it even influenced a poem. Good day!

What I learned today: There are some amazing writers here on WordPress, of fiction and poetry, and I wish I could read all of their work every day. If only there were more than 24 hrs in every day!

What I am most proud of today: I finally managed to catch up on a few of my favorite shows. Sounds kind of shallow to be proud of that, but I don’t watch much tv, and the few shows I do watch, I consider them well-created and they do influence my writing.

What did you do today? Learn any lessons? Have a reason to be proud? Share your thoughts with me in the comments!

Thursday 13 – Strange Facts

Thur thirteen blue

For this week’s Thursday 13, I thought I would share some strange and unusual facts that I have uncovered. I am obsessed with research and learning new things. I often search the internet for strange, unusual, and bizarre facts. Here are a few:

  1. The Mona Lisa has no eyebrows. It was the fashion in Renaissance Florence to shave them off!
  2. The king of hearts is the only king without a mustache on a standard playing card!
  3. When glass breaks, the cracks move faster than 3,000 miles per hour. To photograph the event, a camera must shoot at a millionth of a second!
  4. The two-foot long bird called a Kea that lives in New Zealand likes to eat the strips of rubber around car windows!
  5. Taphephobia is the fear of being buried alive!
  6. The sentence “The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.” uses every letter of the alphabet!
  7. Until 1796, there was a state in the United States called Franklin. Today it’s known as Tennessee!
  8. Owls are one of the only birds who can see the color blue!
  9. The starfish is one of the few animals who can turn its stomach inside-out!
  10. Bats always turn left when exiting a cave!
  11. An earthquake on Dec. 16, 1811 caused parts of the Mississippi River to flow backwards!
  12. Ernest Vincent Wright wrote a novel, Gadsby, which contains over 50,000 words — none of them with the letter E!
  13. And a strange law on the books in my state: In Virginia, the Code of 1930 has a statute which prohibits corrupt practices or bribery by any person other than political candidates.
