Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Sunday Favorites - I Heard it On NPR

.

It's Sunday again, and you know what THAT means!?! It's time for Sunday reruns!!! Thanks so much to Chari over at Happy to Design for hosting this meme, "Sunday Favorites".


Got Spoons?
(First posted 1/25/08)



Under your pillow?




I kid you not!

Apparently students in the northeast believe that when a snow storm is being predicted if they will but sleep with a spoon under their pillow and wearing their pajamas inside out they will get a snow day the next day.

This according to a high school English teacher from Connecticut.

I heard it on NPR.

I for one had never previously heard this urban legend nor tried it. How about you? Sleep on any spoons lately? Or do you have ANOTHER ritual to bring on snow days?

Superstition is alive and well, it seems.

I think your spoons are too pretty to sleep on! And where's the picture of the inside-out-pajamas? Anyway, nice to know superstition lives on in the younger generation '>)
