It's Veteran's Day

See if you can outsmart your foot.
You can't!!!
1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor andmake clockwise circles with it.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your righthand. Your foot will change direction!!!

I thought that thing was hilarious. It's also funny watching someone else try it.

MOW went fine. Nothing about my route was different, but the other drivers were there because the food van was late and they said there were only 3 routes, so maybe they actually opened up a new area. The weirdest thing that happened was a squirrel ran out into the street toward the car in front of me and I thought he was a goner, but it actully looked liked he bounced off the car tire and then ran back onto the grass. It was hard to even figure out what I had just seen. Another weird thing is that nearly everyone in Texas speeds. Well at least here in the metroplex. But there is this one stretch of this one road, that everyone goes way under. The speed limit is 40 there and people always drive 35 or lower. I can't figure it out. The first couple of times I thought it was just my bad luck, but after 4 or 5 times, I've realized it's just something weird that can't be explained.

Italliani's was really nice again. Chris, the magician "taught" me a trick. I emphasize the word because, although he showed me, explained everything, and showed me again, it was pretty much the same as watching a guy build a platform bed on HGTV and then thinking you can build one too. I worked and worked at it but I still can't do it. It was very frustrating. The food was great as usual, and everyone was very friendly. It's nice to have a new fun place to hang out.

This is something cool I found out about on Wil (the Star Trek Guy) Wheaton's website:

I think I HAVE to have one.

Nothing much else to say. Happy Veteran's Day. (Salutes.) And Happy Birthday to my Step-dad. And he was a Marine.

I was able to do the foot-circle-hand-six trick but I had to REALLLLLLY concentrate. And my foot circles because crooked ovals.
