Friday Fun Stuff!

Usually, I have about 3 drafts of Friday Fun Stuff posts ready to go. So imagine my dismay when I went to publish today's and realized I had nothing. I hadn't found anything that gripped me enough to create one this week. Mostly, this has to do with the fact that I started summer vacation this week.

As I am on vacation I have been trying to get caught up with the detris of life. Tuesday, I hung out my husband, like you do. Wednesday, I got caught up on all the movies I have from Zip. Thursday, I hung out with friends I haven't seen in a long time. And today, I decided to take on my looming stack of magazines. Well, except for the Economist. Mark has launched project 'Keep all new Economists hidden from Heidi in my Car'. So far this campaign has been very successful. I was a little distressed when realized I still had about 4 Economists lurking somewhere. If you have ever tried to read one issue of the Economist, let alone 4, you will know the pain I am in. Finally, this weekend I want to finish off a computer game I have started and am really enjoying.

So to make a long story short, I am going to list a couple of things that I think are fun or (the horror!) educational that I have been enjoying recently.

The first is Peanut Butter Wiki. I am going to start using this free wiki in one of my classes in the Fall. I think it will make a great project for students to create their own course wiki. It's the constructivist in me. Knowledge means more when you build it yourself.

Next, I love looking at ProBloggers Blogger Job Board. I makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside that you can get paid to blog.

Finally, for some Friday zen, I have posted two of my favorite pictures from my photo site.
