I just discovered another way to have fun with blogs! I may never have a real life again.
Anne and Rae both had posts about "Tools" this week, which led me to discover Heads or Tails. This blog suggests a new topic or "meme" every week. To play the game, you post about that topic and then link back to your post from the home page.

Since my brain is so unpredictable, I rely heavily on Tool # 3:
