We're going a slightly different direction today. I normally only have one photo on RTT, of a weird sign, but today, I've got some courtesy of Indy. You'll see.
*Indy: Mom, what did Romans use for can openers?
Me: I don't think they had cans.
Indy: They had metal.
Me: That doesn't mean they had cans.
Indy: Well, they should have invented them. Their lives would have been a whole lot easier. Those amphora had to be heavy.
*I have yet to see Alice in Wonderland with my Beloved. (That would be Johnny Depp incase you're new here). Crikey.
*Carnivals used to be the main entertainment for towns. Cigars were often given out as prizes. When someone came close to winning, but didn't the phrase "Close, but no cigar" was used. Meaning they came close, but not close enough to get a cigar.
*The phrase "mad as a hatter" is believed to come from the fact that mercury dye was used in making hats in the 19th century. Mercury poisoning made people twitch (and occasionally turned their hair orange-way to go on authenticity Tim Burton) and they were thought to be mad (crazy).
*Speaking of hats, Indy got a new Fedora the other day. Not an Indiana Jones type of Fedora, but more of a Frank Sintra Fedora. He loves it.
*We're going on a Disney Cruise in May. Indy is driving me crazy talking about it. He asks me a million questions a day. Usually the same questions over and over.
*In preparation for said cruise, we've been watching DVD's about the places we'll be visiting. This week, we watched DVD's about Pompeii and Rome. Last night, Indy was playing in his room and called me in to see what he had done. I had to take photos. He had set up all sorts of little scenes with the Coliseum he got for Christmas.
I particularly like that he has guys working on the structure.
This is my favorite photo. Jail Break!
The whole thing.
I really like the crowd.
*Statistically, Monday is the most popular day for suicides.
*There are 10 human body parts that are only 3 letters long. Do you know what they are? (Answers at bottom)
*Clans of long ago that wanted to get rid of unwanted people without killing them used to burn their houses down -- hence the expression "to get fired"
*I haven't mentioned him in a while, so I'll just throw this out there: Edward Culled. Yummmm.
*Finally, you know you're in trouble when they threaten you with NJ.
10 Body parts with only 3 letters: Eye, Hip, Arm, Leg, Ear, Toe, Jaw, Rib, Lip, Gum. Did you get them all?
Head over to Keely's (she is wicked funny) to check out all the other random thoughts.
