On Geography

I have spent the majority of today studying world geography.  What, that's not normal?  Doesn't everyone do that over the weekend?  No?  Is this why I lost a follower today?  Hmmm...

Seriously, though.  Geography is good to know, and Matt and I always talk about  how we wish we want to know more about the world and,  you know, specifically where everything is.  And I don't mean the big stuff.  I KNOW where Russia is.  I mean...every country in Africa.  And, by the way, after studying the African countries today, I can say with certainty that there are way too many countries in Africa.  For real.  Try to start memorizing them, and then tell me if I'm right or wrong.

Matt and I started playing around on this website.  It's a geography game - the name of a country will come up on the screen, and you have to click what country it is on the world map.  It's tough!  After working all day, I finally got 100% and now can thankfully stop freaking playing.  Holy crap.  Thank goodness.

So, if you need something to do - and especially something to help better your education - check it out.  It will be awesome, trust me.  :)

In other news...how was everyone's 4th of July?  Matt and I had a great time!  We went to my new friend Alyssa's house, and had a great cookout with her, her fiance, and another couple.  Sadly, it poured all day long, so we assumed the fireworks were off.  Sadly, this morning, we woke up and saw that they still had the fireworks despite the rain.  And we missed them.  Bummer!

Well, I'm off to read.  I made a major dent in Scarlett today (in between world map quizzes, of course) and I really want to finish it by tomorrow!  Good night!

lol i love that you did this. there's another website out there where you type in the names of all of the states, countries, etc. and even that one is really hard. i always forget UTAH.

As the husband of a geography teacher I'm delighted with that link, and will be passing it on when she gets home from work. Thanks!

WOW...big weekend with Scarlett and World Geography quizzes? Are you sure you don't have two kids like me???? JUST KIDDING. Seriously, I love Geography and I have had whole conversations on the "too many countries in Africa" bit...they should join forces and blend a few. You are so funny and thanks alot for the website...now I have something fun to do on my wild nights after the minis have gone to bed and one more thing to procrastinate the other 538343 I should be doing. Have a great day!

I USED to be so good at this stuff - remember the "Where in the World in Carmen San Diego" computer game, by chance? Alas, it has all been replaced with the latest from "US Weekly". Yes, my family is proud.

Hope you had a good 4th, geography aside. We had friends in town & had a fabulous time basically eating and drinking our way around the Texas Hill Country.

Glad you had a good weekend!

I'm actually going to play this game right now...

I am glad you had a good 4th- we had a great one too! I almost died tubing at my parent's cabin, but other than that it was good.

I am off to check out this addicting game you have suggested. I am excited.

We love geography too! We have a giant map hanging in our loft so we can study it! We are not as dedicated as you two though ;)

You are too funny but I will admit that I probably would have spent all day trying to get 100% too. Sorry you missed the fireworks but at least you stayed dry!!! XOXO
