Yes, there actually is a Web site called CUTE THINGS FALLING ASLEEP.

Found via CuteOverload.

Specifically … this post.

And why was I over at CuteOverload? Well because Jessamyn was tweeting that her Mom had never seen CuteOverload, and I said outloud (in a two-person office) that not everyone’s Mom has seen CuteOverload. And his nibs was all, “What’s CuteOverload?” and things went from there to there to there.

So there.

Where’s the Gap in Your Knowledge?

Sponsored by Oxford University Press’ Very Short Introductions: Where’s the Gap in Your Knowledge?

Quiz asks three questions in each of seven subject areas. You must answer at least two out of the three questions correctly or you have a gap in that area of knowledge.

My only gap was in Religion & Theology.

Test your color IQ

Drag and drop the colors in each row to arrange them by hue order.
The first and last color chips are fixed.
Click on “Score Test” when done.

Interesting exercise!

“You have perfect color vision!” they told me.
