You guys. Where the heck have I been?!? No matter. Here are some Quickies…


I’ve featured this before but my Mom likes this and mentioned it to me in email and that’s good enough for me… so here’s a reprise. It makes me feel good about people and that’s never a bad thing. We’re all in this together. Enjoy.

Where the hell is Matt?

    Man, their fact for Maryland is totally underselling it. Yes, our state cat is the calico because its colors match our state flag, but for the exact same reason our state flower is the Black-Eyed Susan, our state bird is the Baltimore oriole, our state insect is the Baltimore checkerspot butterfly, and our stet gem is the Patuxent River Stone.

    Other fun facts: we have a state dinosaur (Astrodon johnstoni), a state fossil shell (Ecphora gardernae gadnerae), our state exercise is walking, our state drink is milk, and our state sport is jousting. []

    MarlowePI, I love everything about your comment. Now I need to find out if my own state, or rather commonwealth, of Pennsylvania has a state dinosaur. And if we don’t, I want to know why!
