Remember when we were little and played a game about phone tag? Well these days I play a bit different a version, I begin with one blog each morning ( Scobles of course) and then depending on what posts grab my attention I veer off course for a great days adventure into learning. I love learning, about all sorts of new and different ideas , what have you.
Today, Mr S was waxing poetic about techi stuff, and in the post “The Coolest thing at CES” he mentions a really “cool” water show at the Bellagio in Vegas, so I clicked the link and off I went on todays adventure. I was lead to Paul Mooneys blog post about the water show, a video with his mentioning they were looking for the Vanishing point and would like to get ideas. Vanishing Point I say to myself, what is this about? And so I click the link, and off to interesting place number two! The Vanishingpoint game is something I have never heard about but the idea is really, well “cool”. Of course I signed up, even though it seems I am a few weeks behind, and may never win I love the idea of using my mind to solve puzzles ( explains why I do Genealogy :-). Give it a read, and a try!
The second blog I read everyday on my Google Reader is Paula Mooney’s blog, she always has a post to make me think. Because of Paula, I recently became aware of a new blog called Dooce. This lady has what I love to see in women ( sexist much? Yup) writers, honesty to a point. Her blog today was about a friend of hers , Sarah Brown whom she went partying with in New York recently. Sarah also blogs, imagine that :-) Her blog Que Sera Sera is about bringing your teenage years into sharp focus, publicly! Love it, absolutely love it!
The idea has morphed into the Cringe Book:
“We’re looking for brave souls willing to share their old diaries, journals, letters, notes, songs, poems… anything you wrote during the crushing misery of adolescence and then saved in a hidden box at your parents’ house all these years. Top secret no more.”

So,today was a creative adventure which I never expected to find, and glad I did.
