Cha Cha Moment

So my brother Joe and his friends are fooling around with the Cha Cha service on their cell phones (text 242 242 with any question, and you'll get an answer). They're asking things like, "When did the Great Papal Schism occur...?" "Who founded the Catholic Church?"... "Who's cuter, me or my friend?"

...They ask, "Who is John Paul 2?"

The answer comes back: "John Paul 2 High is a new Catholic book series written by Christian M. Frank...."

Everyone in Joe's class (he works at a Catholic high school) said, "What did it say?" since Joe's jaw had dropped.

"Dude, my sister worked on that book! That's her thing!"

"No way!"

So go figure. Of all the things they could have said about John Paul the Great...

...well, I guess I'm honored.

Last of the Blog Memes: J.P.

A cold one.

Scientists generally acknowledge the bucket from Nantucket to be the *first* bucket. That explains why it is still celebrated in limericks even to this day.

(6) DESCRIBE 3 WORDS.
Well, I would have to describe 3 words as almost being a sentence, but not quite there yet. Try to work on it. Consider using four or maybe even FIVE words next time.

(7) WHAT PLANT IMMEDIATELY FINISHING?
Fichus is immediately finishing.

(8) HEMINGWAY ONCE SAID THE BEST STORY HE EVER WROTE WAS ONLY SIX WORDS LONG: “FOR SALE, BABY SHOES, NEVER USED.” WHAT STORY COULD YOU WRITE IN ONLY SIX WORDS?

Here's Brian Burke's meme:

(1) PLEASE WRITE OUT, PHONETICALLY, HOW YOU WOULD PRONOUNCE THE WORD, "MEME."

Catch up on my reading. Or complete the next mission on Lost Odyssey. I haven’t decided yet.
