Things I discovered the other day on the Internet.

I would like, if I may, to tell you about the neatest thing I discovered at work today.

As you may be aware, The Boyfriend was contemplating going to graduate school in a place far away. In an effort to figure out how this was going to work for us, I did some good old Internet investigating and discovered...

GeoMidpoint!! So cool!

What city is in the middle of Cheyenne, Wyoming and Miami, Florida? Gillett, Arkansas. Dublin, Ireland and Volgograd, Russia? Olsztyn, Poland. Halifax, Nova Scotia and Anchorage, Alaska? Middle of nowhere, Nunavut! Isn't that wonderful?

The other thing that I discovered while researching what would make The Boyfriend living far away more awesome is Cost to Drive!

Also so cool!!

You put in two cities, your car's year, make, and model and it figures out where you'll need to stop for gas, as well as how much it will cost based on current prices! You're driving from your home at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave to Eureka, California in your 2003 Jeep Wranger with four-wheel drive? That will cost you $346.97 and your carbon footprint will be 4207.9 lbs. Also, it would cost you $350 to fly, so you might as well save those $4.00 and buy yourself some McNuggets on your way, Mr. President!

So many cool things!

Aaaaaand... 2009 Packers Schedule! Who wants to go to the Vikings game on November 1st? Come on...

I would go to every Packers home game if I could. I love me some Lambeau.

LET'S GO. You guys can sleep on my sofa-bed if you want. Or you can sleep on my actual bed and I'll sleep on the sofa!
