An Awesome, Funny, Educational Detective Show That Has To Deal With Body Language, Micro-emotions and Murders

It's called Lie To Me, and is very cool. The show is based around Dr. Cal Lightman, a  very, how do I say this... well, watch it and you'll see. It has to do with Lightman solving mysteries through emotions. Say, look it up on Youtube and watch one. You'll be hooked. And if you have Netflix, watch the darned funniest one(Lightman goes on vacation with his daughter(he's divorced, and has half-custody), Emily. Whie there, he spies on his office through his computer. It ends up really funny!), Season 1 Episode 16. Comment if you've watched it! :D

Odd... Someone Died On The Hill Behind Us? And It Was Only 40 Years Ago?

Huh. I just heard that that beautiful forest behind our house was once Daisy Hill Mine. And a boy fell into a sinkhole when he was hiking and died. Creepy beyond belief. I always wondered what that giant swoop in the ground was. And why I was always told not to walk on it.

I Have Western Chorus Frogs?

Yup, true. I have these cute things. They're called Western Chorus Frogs. Great pest control, and make a beautiful song, I heard. I have 15, because 2 I released into my little pond. They're doing fine, but we had a big storm last night. The air will be fresh, though, and perfect for a bike ride... if it wasn't 42 F.

New Favorite Band: Panic! At The Disco

Easy enough to say. The lead singer, Brendon Urie--okay, maybe he's(almost) the only one in the band anymore--has a voice much like mine. I can replicate Mad As Rabbits, Do You Know What I'm Seeing?, She Had The World, and The Piano Knows Something I Don't. Some of the songs are in here. All the songs are nonsense, too. Pas de Cheval talks about

It's the greatest thing that's yet to have happened
Imagine knowing me
It's the greatest thing you'd ever imagine
But you'll never know until you're there
No, you'll never know until you're there

Odd, eh? But I made a bag, and I'm planning on embroidering 'Panic! at the Disco' on it... And adding little snippets from The Piano Knows Something I Don't on it. So, know you know what I sound like. And that I'm a girl. *headdesk*

Tadpoles: Part I

Okay... this weekend, I found 17 tadpoles inside a drying up puddle on the top of the forest behind our house. I was hunting for Morells, but ended up carrying the mushrooms, emptying bucket, and transporting tadpoles down a steep, slick, rocky, cold, windy, mountain carrying an open, sloshing, bucket. I also have a 'private' stream flowing through the forest. Trickles, but relaxing to watch. At the mid-bottom, there is a hole filled with water. It's about big enough to sit in if you fold your knees under you. Not deep, only about 8-inches to the bottom. I released some of the tadpoles into it. I was left with 10. I gave them a temporary chinese take-out container(the plastic ones soup comes in) with a rock, a twig, and a piece of expensive artisan lettuce. They didn't eat it, they used it as a bed. Sure, they nibbled at it, but they demolished the fish flake I gave them. Today, I gave them a nice sized glass bowl. It is very clean, and looks designer. Also, I figure out what kind they are today...

Things You Probably Never Knew And Never Would Have Knew

Okay, I'm starting a routine. Wednesday is now Fact Night!

Today's theme is Fish.

Atlantic salmon are able to leap 15 feet high.

Most tropical marine fish could survive in a tank filled with human blood.

Minnows have teeth in their throat.

The lungfish can live out of water in a state of suspended animation for three years.

The garfish has green bones.

The Elephant Snout, an African fish, communicates with other fish by emitting an electrical signal, sort of a fish's version of Morse Code.

Many years ago, a fish was caught that was 33 inches long and seemed to be heavier than it should. When they cut the fish, fishermen found a full of bottle of ale inside it. 

Sharks are immune to all sickness' but cancer.

Stonefish are the most poisonous fish.

More next Wednesday!

I Quote Melly, "Reality TV is not reality".

Guess what? On My Crazy Obsession a few days ago, Garibaldi Rous got his own show. Just on capybaras! But they made it seem like Gari had a big problem, and that was biting. I would start biting the camera guys and others if I had 5 intruders enter my home with big, heavy equipment and go "Act normal!" Anyways, if you care to watch it, go here!
