Topic for Tuesday 31st March - April Fools!

Have you ever had an April Fools Day prank pulled on you, or pulled a prank on someone? Share what happened.

Pranks performed on April Fool's Day range from the simple, (such as saying, "Your shoe's untied!), to the elaborate. Setting a roommate's alarm clock back an hour is a common gag. Whatever the prank, the trickster usually ends it by yelling to his victim, "April Fool!"

Practical jokes are a common practice on April Fool's Day. Sometimes, elaborate practical jokes are played on friends or relatives that last the entire day. The news media even gets involved. For instance, a British short film once shown on April Fool's Day was a fairly detailed documentary about "spaghetti farmers" and how they harvest their crop from the spaghetti trees! Also in Britain you only have until 12pm to do your prank, otherwise the joke is on you!

It's simply a fun little holiday, but a holiday on which one must remain forever vigilant, for he may be the next April Fool!

Topic for Tuesday 17th March - Procrastination!

"If it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done."

Are you a procrastinator? What things do you to procrastinate? Are there some thing you are glad you procrastinated, or some things you wish you hadn't? Do you have any tips for overcoming procrastination?

The reason for this topic is because last week was "National Procrastination Week", is that something to celebrate? I thought it would be more appropriate to approach this topic a week late:).

Topic for Tuesday 10th March - Women's Day!

Who has been the most influential woman in your life, and why?

Sunday was International Womens Day which is something that has been around since 1911. Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. In some countries it's a national holiday. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. So, basically a day to celebrate the awesomeness of women:).
