I ended this week in 2nd place of all of Richmond. Yes I’m talking about Foursquare, the newest and silliest internet game yet. If you are unfamiliar this is how it works. You set up a profile and “check in” to places that you go IRL (in real life). It tells you how many points you get for checking in and who else is at the same place you are. If you go to a particular place multiple times you become the “mayor” and get to do absolutely nothing with that title. Except if you are the mayor of the new coffee shop at Meadow and Park, Garnett’s, there you can get a free coffee. It sounds super silly and kind of pointless, and well it is. But it’s fun and if your friends are playing it’s a fun little competition, to basically see who goes out more.
The reason I was able to score so many points this week is because of all of the new locations I checked into. You get bonus points for a new spot. This is probably my only week of Foursquare queendom. And the only time I will ever blog about this.
Random assorted things:
• The Beatles Never Broke Up Some guy’s story of his trip to a parallel universe where he brought back a recording The Beatles never made in our universe.
• Bubble Wrap Calendar? Awesome.
• Apollo 8 Mission pictures Posted these awhile ago, Brittany found these old awesome NASA photos. We did some research and found out who these dudes were, the first mission to circle the moon.
