IOU, my loyal blog readers, The Skinny on Book Distributors, Part II , which I promise I will blog when I return.
Meanwhile, I thought it might be fun to list some little known (or maybe well known, but they were little known to me) facts:
Fact: Ancient Egyptians shaved off their eyebrows to mourn the deaths of their cats.
And here I thought silent movie stars invented that!
Fact: The bubbles in Guinness beer sink to the bottom rather than the top like all other beers. No one knows why.
And neither do I. Anyone have a guess?
Fact: The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
And the most important thing to remember is when to hold it and how to use it.
Fact: It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes shut.
Bet y'all knew that already.
Fact: A goldfish has a memory span of 3 seconds.
I wonder how that could be proven. I'll bet Jeff Probst could find a way to prove it.
Fact: Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
My second husband was a Leo :-)
Fact: Elephants are the only animals that can't jump.
And thank God for that, I say.
And finally... no word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, and purple.
Unless, of course, you're Dr. Seuss.
Over and Out and awaaaaaay,
