So what sort of wonderful things did I do with this first Saturday night not at work? Not a whole heck of a lot! Actually, what I've done is closed myself off in the computer room upstairs while Amanda has not one but two friends over for the night. Laura and Rachel are both good kids but somehow this house seems even smaller when there are two more 14-year old females occupying it and it just seemed wiser to retreat!
That said, it gave me lots of time to mindlessly surf the Internet and I came across what I thought were some interesting, though perfectly useless, facts that I felt I should share so that I'm not the only font of useless knowledge walking around out there! So, courtesy of The Wildlife Page, I bring you these interesting little tidbits:
