Well I learned something new yet again. While creating my Social Media Resume I made this cool Wordle of key words that describe me:

Yes! You read that right…12 More of the All-Time Best Test Answers
I told you that you could spend hours clicking on links aimlessly until you happen upon something truly wonderful and that is just what I did. So without further adieu here they are:
This morning on The Early Show I saw a segment about environmentally friendly speakers. Needing portable speakers for my iPod I had to get these.
While I was at Wal-Mart this afternoon I decided to check the electronics department to see if they carried the speakers. Going directly to the isle the iPod accessories are on I easily located the Eco-Speakers next to the ear-buds and the speakers only cost $9.99.
It’s getting really close to time for finals and with the tests rapidly approaching many of us college students are up late studying and writing final papers.
I have read many times on the internet that most students will not retain over half of the information they just read. While most students would leave the answers blank there are a select few students who belong to a group of elite test takers that no matter how hard they try they can’t just leave the answer slot blank.
I found this list while randomly clicking on links this morning. It’s amazing how much time you can waste doing this. :)

Who would have thought the land which the landmark Hollywood sign sits upon was in danger of being demolished to make way for a housing development? I certainly hadn’t heard…
Well-known entrepreneur and owner of Playboy Magazine, Hugh Hefner, has donated that last $900,000 of $12.5 million dollars needed to save the equally as well-known Hollywood sign that sits upon Cahuenga Peak overlooking the city of Los Angeles. Technically Hef didn’t save Hollywood all by himself, but his last-minute donation has saved the landmark yet again.
Yes…you read that correctly, again. This is the second time Hef has donated money to “save” the world-famous sign. In 1978 Hugh pioneered the last campaign to save and restore the sign which was near collapse and was joined by celebrities such as Alice Cooper, Gene Autry, and Andy Williams.
Now the 138 acres of land adjacent to the landmark will become part of Griffith Park. The land was originally bought by industrialist Howard Hughes in 1940. Hughes bought the land planning to build a home for actress Ginger Rogers, but their romance soon fizzled.
In 2002, Hughes’ estate sold the land to a group of Chicago investors who put the 138 acres behind the sign up for sale in 2008 asking for $22 million. Now it seems that the sign is safe yet again thanks to the efforts of numerous celebrity donations and from the donations of several sponsors.
