a new addiction for the new year

I've told you about the soothing qualities of FreeRice.com. Now there is Traveler IQ Challenge to occupy my nonexistent spare time! As if it wasn't degrading enough to find out my vocabulary is less than stellar (being an English major and all), this new site lets me know I'm not the brilliant cosmopolite I had believed either. Although I did just barely miss moving on to Level 5 in my first try (biggest DUH was being about 1500 km away from Portugal; I think I put Lisbon somewhere in Turkey). And I have earned 1400+ grains of rice for hungry people (which is about 14 bowls; go me, saving the world!)

But I'm keeping you from trying these aneurysm-inducing really fun & educational games yourself! There is a link for FreeRice in my sidebar and I've embedded Traveler IQ Challenge at the bottom of this page. So you can plan anytime you come back to visit me!*

Traveler IQ is great but I found myself almost saying out loud "Silly me! Of course I knew that that was Taiwan and not Thailand." Also, shaming. I got all the Middle East ones wrong. Season's Greetings to Bad Mom and all her visitors
