winner, hopefully always

So... I won a giveaway! Of this gorgeous necklace! How exciting is that? (The answer is, through the roof!) It was held by the lovely Laura over at Blue Eyed Night Owl and featured a necklace from Khrystyna's beautiful shop. (If you want to win something this beautiful, head on over to her blog- she's having a giveaway now too!) I can't wait to wear it- a great way to jazz up my uniform for sure. 

On a slightly related note: did you know that... a lobster's blood is clear until it hits oxygen, then it becomes blue?

Nope. Me neither... but now we do! And there's your useless fact of the day.

Where does this come from, you may ask? Why did you need to look this up and share it with us?

Well. You might not have realised this (it doesn't really come up in my posts) but... I have an intensely competitive nature. Like, about everything. When I was younger, I used to say I had bigger feet than I really did because one of my friends had larger feet than I did and I wanted to 'beat' her... (Typing this makes it all seem incoherent and ridiculous, but it was A BIG DEAL for quite a while- see the pun?) I'd like to say that this tendency diminished through the years, but unfortunately it hasn't.

So, now that I am one of two students in my math class... IT IS ON. 

How does science come into this, you might ask? Well, he also happens to be in my chemistry class, and every single day, he comes up with random facts that are somehow also related to the lesson. He's like an encyclopedia... and it's driving me insane.  

(Kori and I now have conversations composed entirely of "Did you know?" A sample here:

"Did you know that this hot chocolate is hot?" 

"Did you know that James Bond has a cousin named Ionic?" 

and my personal favourite..."Did you know that my breasts can tell when it's raining?" Please tell me you catch the reference!) 

So does anyone know any fascinating science facts I could share?

Also, just cause...

Drinking this would simply be cruel...

...but not as cruel as this.


  1. Wow that is awesome! Congrats! And there's nothing wrong with being a little competitive!

  2. Nice header ;D

    Dude, I seriously used to be the same way when I was a kid. Surprisingly it was with my feet also. It was such a huge milestone in my life that I had bigger feet than most of my friends. Keep in mind that all of my friends at this point were boys... I'm guessing that's where the competition mindset came from.

    You won a giveaway - wait what :O

    OMG so many did you knows XD You and your bringing up the boobs/rain thing - I had no idea that was from MG at first and was totally traumatized when you told me mine could do that XD poor, disturbed moi.

    Bond. *Ionic* Bond ;) (I've been laughing all night at Grumpy Cat)

  3. That coffee is so cool! Great post:)

  4. I totally get the Mean Girls reference (and so does my sister)! Ever since we first watched it we have used it randomly is conversations and find it totally hilarious.

  5. Congratulations on your win : )

    Thers a 30% chance that it's already raining!

    A scientific fact...No matter its size or thickness, no piece of paper can be folded in half more than 7 times.
