Geography Issues And Other Disasters


Striped tee: LOFT. Cardi: LOFT. Belt: LOFT. Beloved maternity pants: Target. Shoes: Target. Earrings: F21.
In my last post I mentioned how much I love maternity pants. Well, here they are in all their maternal glory. Not so bad, right? They are a little baggy through the hips, but that just leaves more comfy wiggle room for moi.

In other news, I suck at United States geography. I realized this when The Mister and I had a contest to see who could draw the best and most accurate map of the United States.

He missed something like 4 states. I missed about 15, maybe even 20. We scanned the pictures onto the computer, but I am too embarrassed to put it out there for the world to see.

Pathetic, I know. I'm hoping I get one of those cool U.S. map puzzles in my stocking. Not even kidding right now. That, and I clearly need to go back to the third grade. Maybe I could even engage in a little game of dodge ball like in Billy Madison, which reminds me of a story you all need to know. Here it goes...

An anonymous acquaintance of mine used to work at the YMCA. They worked for an after-school type program with little elementary kids.

One day a vigorous game of dodge ball commenced. For those of you who have seen Billy Madison, what happens to mouthy kids who talk smack during the game?

They get dominated.

This anonymous person claims they were being "ganged up" on by a group of 8 and 9 year-olds. I suppose the natural response to that was laying bombs on them until they were all tagged out, left crying, and possibly missing some teeth.

oh, US geography.

when i studied abroad last summer, we had to memorize the map of the EU with capitals and everything.

i suddenly realized, not only do i know nothing about europe, but i know even less about my own country.

US PUZZLE MAPS FOR ALL! :)

Haha, it's okay. I'm originally from Kansas, and I had no idea where Iowa was until I moved up to Nebraska (the state above Kansas and to the left of Iowa if you're as geographically challenged as I am and didn't know that), and had lived there for a couple of years.
One of my roommates said she was going to Iowa for the weekend, and I was like, whoa... isn't that 12 hours away? She just looked at me like I was retarded and goes... "uh, no. It's like, 2.5 hours away."
Nice.
