Today I learned:

- the guy who invented gatorade died (sorry if that's not terribly original)

- that Carl Rove is now trying to blame Congress for getting us into Iraq, contrary too overwhelming evidence that it was the Bush administration who bullied Congress into voting for the war

- that more US soldiers died in Iraq today

- that Mitt Romney really, really should not be in public office or any other job that involves him moving his lips within range of a recording device

- that composer Paul Dukas who composed the symphonic poem The Sorcerer's Apprentice (yeah, that one in Fantasia) studied under Debussy and his idols were Beethoven and Wagner

- that there was a Doctor Who novel called The Sorcerer's Apprentice

- how to pronounce "Lagavulin," "Laphroaig," and "Caol Ila" - names of Scottish whisky distilleries

- that I have over $100 in cash in my purse (I was thinking I had only about $50!)

- that I can peel a kiwi fruit with a regular kitchen peeler with relatively little difficulty

- that the funky smell in my fridge was the leftover Thanksgiving turkey I forgot about

- that the Wild Oats brand "Oats and Flax" flavored organic instant oatmeal is pretty yummy

3. That sweaty socks when left in a kitbag for three days do not smell too good.

4. That DVD recorders with hard drives are now getting REALLY cheap.
