Summer is almost over! Links to keep you busy until then.
It seems that just a few short weeks ago I was whining about how hot it is all the time, and frankly, how much I detest summer in the cities. The heat, the humidity, the mosquitoes! Well, frankly, we've had a bit of heat and humidity, but thanks to the dry summer, few mosquitoes until just recently.
Today, I attended the annual CEHD State Fair Orientation. Yup, that's right--I'll be doing my time volunteering at the state fair later this month. Stop on by the College of Education and Human Development booth in the lovely U of M building. Check out our bright new orange t-shirts that commemorate the college's centennial. (Why orange? Be sure to ask when you come see us, because I honestly have no clue.) Ask us how the restructuring is going. And, be sure to get your ruler.
Well, one thing's for sure: if I'm gearing up for the state fair, summer's coming to an end. In the meantime, here are some fun things to waste your precious time with.
Google Earth: Google's "3-D interface to the planet." True, it requires a fast connection, and true, the images aren't in real time (just taken sometime in the past three years) but guarenteed to keep you fascinated for hours.
Is Ann B. Davis, TV's Alice from the Brady Bunch, still alive, you wonder? Check out Dead or Alive, where you can find out she, and countless other celebrities, are still with us or pushing up daisies.
If you've had enough of Kitten War, try playing Rock, Paper, Scissors online. Don't worry if you don't win--you can always improve your technique by reading The Official Rock Paper Scissors Strategy Guide. Who knows? You might give up grad school to join the professional RPS Leagues!
You could listen to the Llama Song. Need I say more?
Learn a little about one of my true obsessions: origami. I probably have more square sheets of paper than one person should be allowed to have! When time permits--and it often doesn't these days--I love to see what I can make out of a single sheet of paper.
If none of these suggestions keep you distracted from the heat of summer, you could always plan your trip to the Minnesota State Fair. Where else can you get over 200 food items on a stick?! It's a sure fire sign that summer's almost over. Look for me there--I'll be in the bright orange t-shirt.

I just remembered last Summer when
both of us were still in Portland.
We entered M'cdonald and had a dip and dots
since I had never tried it before.
Unfortunately, I did not have an opprtunity
to visit Mpls during the state fair which
sounds a lot of fun. I wish I could fly over.
By the way, Summer won't end in Japan yet. We
still have this hot humid weather with heat...
Hanging around in cities, whenever I see something of "Hello Kitty", I remember you!
I really liked making Origami with you...

Hi! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading through your articles. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same subjects? Thanks a ton!

Along with the whole thing which appears to be developing inside this particular area, many of your points of view tend to be fairly stimulating. Nevertheless, I beg your pardon, because I can not give credence to your whole theory, all be it radical none the less. It looks to everybody that your opinions are generally not completely validated and in fact you are yourself not really totally convinced of your argument. In any case I did enjoy examining it.
