random

today all i have to say in this blog is that i feel like eating a salad in claremont with a mustard dressing i make and roasted pinenuts, heirloom tomatoes, and chunks of avocado. because it’s a random thought, i’m going to list an equally random compilation of interesting facts i have found from the internet:

All porcupines float in water.

A male emperor moth can smell a female emperor moth up to 7 miles away.

Almonds are a member of the peach family.

Winston Churchill was born in a ladies’ room during a dance.

and this last one was from Claire’s research project: there’s a 99% rate of literacy in France and 21% of their national budget is allocated to the nation’s education.
