If you've been looking for a new way to spend money, here is one. You can buy prints of my photos at Imagekind. I have no expectations for this, but I thought why not, since it doesn't cost me anything. I found out about the site from my friend Miranda Gabbard, whose page is here.

I learned a new game

from Elisa Gabbert. She explains it thusly:

My brother and I and some of our other friends at Rice (Robo, Baseman, Kylec) made up a game called the Mizoovie Game Part II that we used to play all the time. It goes like this: One player names two movies, and the other players try to name a third movie that includes an actor from each. For example, if I say Star Wars and Ghost, the answer is Soap Dish (Carrie Fisher + Whoopi Goldberg). There may be other answers, but you have to have something in mind from the beginning; you can't just throw out two random movies as there may not be a solution.

This is a great car game. It works best when you know the other players have seen a lot of the same movies as you, and if you use movies with ensemble casts, because there are more possible permutations. (If you use movies that only have two significant roles each, there are only four possible combinations.)

It's a hard game for people who have trouble keeping track of a lot of information in their heads. Like me. But it's fun to make up the questions. I'm reminded of the fun I had writing the crossword puzzle for my high school paper.

See how well you do with these...
