Float away on this, your Friday shotgun.

  • GPS Visualizer
    • This site takes all the work out of superimposing your GPS track files onto maps or satellite pictures. Just get the track file onto your computer by whatever means you have, then upload it to this site. It will generate a JPEG for you. There are a plethora of settings, if you want to get technical with it.
  • Disco Elevator (Video)
    • Here’s one way to make people use the stairs more.
  • Annoying Frog (Animated Video) (Dead Link)
    • This is a video containing that frog whose ringtone is all the rage in Europe. I can’t remember if we’ve already covered this subject, but here it is again just in case. This like is for the directory in which you will find the movie.
  • Cup Stacking (Video)
    • You will believe a girl can stack cups! And it’s pretty amazing.
  • SlickDeals.net (Shopping)
    • I found some pretty good deals here.
  • Kittenwar (Pointless)
    • Spend your day clicking the cuter kitten. Some people have found it difficult to stop.
  • Fix a Scratched CD (DIY)
    • The word is, Brasso rocks, for polishing purposes.
  • Mind Control (Video Anim)
    • Learn how to avoid mind control… form an otter.

It’s a short one for this week. I’m going to a character carnival.

What is a character carnivale?

Posted by: Princess Carmen at May 27, 2005 10:30 AM

Character Carnival is when the kids all dress up as a character from their favorite book, and deliver a description of the book to the class and before their friends and families.

The idea is to promote reading by promoting books that the kids themselves find engaging. The kids get to express their interests (and dress up) and everybody gets to learn about what books the other kids are reading.

Of course, our neighbors all probably think we're the Adams Family now. M dressed up all in black as Violet Baudelaire, brought along her favorite doll all dressed in black as Sunny Baudelaire, and delivered a speech in which she described everyone dying in the Baudelaire childrens' lives, and then said "this is a wonderful book."

I'm a kittenwar pusher, but I'm not a user.

You're under arrest for posession of kittenwar with intent to distribute.

I would have liked the frog one better if he had died.

All the rage in Europe? Where? All I can see are people saying they hate the little bugger.
