Burning Sugar

Technically, this is Wednesdays weirdest thing, but its just so weird its worth going back for.  So on Wednesday me and Olivia got together to do science, or chemistry.  The first experiment we were required to do was to fill a test tube with sugar, and place it over a flame in a holder.  Then we were supposed to leave it there till the WHOLE tube of sugar melted , or rather burned in to a solid black, nasty lump of burnt sugar.  And let me tell you, that's just what it did.  It took about 15 minutes for the whole thing to pop a little un melted sugar our of its top and start burning.  Fact: It smelled like burning marshmallows.  Maybe that's because marshmallows are pure sugar too...

any who, after 48 hours of soaking there is still a test tube in the kitchen with permanently stuck burnt sugar at the bottom.  :)

Attempting to Recoginze "The Christmas Song"

Although this wasnt really that weird, it was an adventure to finally discover/remember the title of (what we now we know as) "The Christmas Song."  I asked my mom yesterday what the title of the song that starts "chestnuts roasting on an open fire" she could sing most of the song but had no idea what the title was.  This evening I asked my dad, he could sing the entire song from memory, and still NO idea what in the world the title was.  And as soon as we asked faithful Google what it was we came up with "The Christmas Song" and everyone whent "OOHHHHH! YAA!" 

just a snippit of how stupid and pointless most of the time spent sitting around my house is....
like you care....
the two brothers standing behind me are convinced that this is the stupidest thing I could ever dream about posting, but you'll have to live with it because nothing else interesting happened today.
