I can’t dance, but I love to. So, I still shake in the front row of Zumba class. I can’t sing, but still think it’s fun to sing along with the radio at the top of my lungs. And I’m probably dancing, too- it’s not like anyone can see me in the car, right? Oh, oops. I can hold conversations using only movie quotes or song lyrics. And I will crack up if whomever I’m talking to doesn’t realize what I’m doing. Finding new ways to tie my hair up in a messy bun is a favorite hobby of mine, especially since messy buns work so well with the yoga pants I think I should live in. I’ve been known to get so caught up in a book that I can’t put it down, even if I need to walk somewhere… which has led to some interesting run-ins (oh, how I love bad puns). The sand at the beach convinces me that I can somehow do all the gymnastics tricks I could do when I was a little girl… I totally can’t, but I never learn and at least the sand softens my fall. We all have our quirks, right? I think I might be passing some of them off to my kids- what do you think?
It’s totally okay to be whoever you are: to be unique, let loose, be yourself, and maybe even get a little strange. So, let’s have a little fun, celebrate being ourselves, shall we? Head over to Facestrument, a Facebook game that turns your face into a musical instrument. It uses a webcam and facial recognition technology so that you can wink, blink, nod, and smile along to the beat of a song. And at the end (this is important if you get competitive over completely silly things like I do), you get a score that shows how accurately you performed. Yes, I really want to know if I winked and blinked and nodded better than my Facebook friends while being silly along with a song. You also get a video of yourself jamming out that you can share with your friends: this is like my car dancing coolness, times ten. Head over to Facestrument and see if you can beat my score. Which I won’t tell you until I see yours.
