i've got to get up to speed

when i went to fill in the about me section on this hummer..it has a handlebar you can pull down for a listing of countries...i have NO IDEA where some of those countries are....i feel like the globe has turned into a prince stage show...first there was prince rogers nelson, then there was prince, then there was the artist formerly known as prince and now well, i think he's back to prince....so many countries have gone back to the name they called themselves which i think it great. i think of myself as a fairly intelligent person but even i'm not up to speed on all these name changes....i think we should get the maps to say formerly known as...for a least a certain amount of time...so people can know....i think i'll talk to obama's transition team and maybe santa about this one....

You're funny! Every Friday in my class for Social Studies, we do this thing called Geography A-Z. The kids have 7 clues and all the answers start with the same letter of the alphabet. Today was I, and no one could find #5. Well, turned out it was Ivory Coast, but in the atlas it's Cote de something or another. There are several like this and it drives me nuts. But it forces me to keep up on my countries!
