Yeah, this would have been nice.

Yeah, this would have been nice.

After a week of some aggravating insomnia and a lot more reading than usual, it is time once again to present my favorite posts of the week:

Carnivals:

Only one carnival participation this week.

Random Knowledge:

  • Avocados never ripen until they are pulled from the branch. They stay on the tree up to 16 months.
  • A group of Kangaroos is called a mob. They may also be called a troop or a herd.
  • Spam. Yes, that product you love soooooo much, stands for Shoulder Pork and Ham.

Thanks for the mention, Matt! I always thought Spam stood for really gross food that pretends to be some kind of gelatinous meat. 😉

HA! I thought so to…but don’t forget, they can’t seem to get enough of it in Hawaii.
