Caitlin Takes Over the Keyboard

by Meghann on November 21, 2008

Hi, guys! It’s Caitlin! Meghann called me with some sad news: her laptop died (again), and she’s taking it to Best Buy for repair.  But, her sweet and kind parents are dropping off their laptop in the AM, so Meghann will be back in blogging action TOMORROW! Yay!

 

She’s kind of upset about the laptop situation (computer repair isn’t cheap!) so let’s leave her fun facts to read when she returns.

 

I’ll start:

 

Did you know you can led a cow UPstairs, but not DOWNstairs? Their joint structure prevents them from comfortably navigating down stairs.

 

Your turn! :)

Do you know that leading a cow upstairs is an all time favorite prank of mine? Not that I have ever done it of course, but the elegance is in the simplicity of the prank.

As for a random fun fact:

Every time you lick a stamp, you’re consuming 1/10 of a calorie.

Bummer about the laptop.
