A - Z of place names game!

GAME OVER - see the new game!
Come help my students play this game! I found this on my Digital Scrapbook Place site. It's on Pyewacket's Party - the daily doings of an IT classroom. If you want to play - and you know you want to - leave a comment on Pyewacket's Party with the next answer. I will update the list whenever there's a comment.

I got out a map of Australia - well, I opened up Google! Same thing. :)

Woo hoo! Thank you to those who are playing along! We are up to Z!

Players so far include Mickey, Camie's Kitties, Moe and Mindy, Shade and Goldie, Rossetti and Kirara, Gandalf and Grayson, Charlie, Movies, Dog Merlin, dogs and soccer, puppy power, Slinky, Sabrina and Sam and Simon, Marian and Thomas and Trixie and Phoebe, Daisy and Yao-lin!

I put 2 comments on Pye's blog. I didn't entireley get what I was meant to do with the descriptive sentences but I did it anyway. It was 'In the Aussie rainforest I found...'. Sound good?

I think I need to study geography more before I can play...

I went on Tigger's blog and put a few down and put a few more names on Pye's blog.

I've been meaning to tell you about a laptop I saw in a catolouge. It was a Compaq with a 1GB RAM and was around $600 - $700 with some cashback thing. Windows Vista of course but the Basic and not the Home Premium. Much like mine really except mine was 156 MB and $800.

What bit made you laugh? Was it a comment or the descriptive writing? Please excuse any typos. I don't think I know how to spell Premium and catolouge but it looks something like that!

We'll try, but Mom stinks at geography. She says she NEEDS to go to Italy to study Tuscany.

I'm so glad that I got a laptop in Term 2 or 1. It was a great semester.

Did I tell you about the problem that we had when we added me as a author or are we transfering all our posts? I think I've got more posts than anyone! 96 or somtething.

Making an avatar should be great fun. I really like dragons so much that I am deffinetly doing a dragon mosaic.

I think that the photo is a groupie and it was made with an overlay. Dropped opacity could come into it too. Do all that then add the elements then you're done! (I think).

P.S. Do you think you can add me to the people that play?

Put a comment on Pye. Sorry this comment is so late. We went out for dinner for Clue's birthday. It's tomorrow.

I need to think of more places from NT and SA. Well at least that's what I think. Got to look at maps more but this is certainly making my geography skills better.

Did I get the scrapbook thing right or wrong? I hope it was a good enough explaination. Now I think of it, it may have not of been that good.

I put a comment on Pye but I guess I was lucky to do it. Our Internet isn't working and we had to find another way to do all our Internet stuff. So I might not be able to check my blog daily for about 2 or 4 days so this might be the only time I can communitcate with you for a while.

I'm glad Alessandro is back. It'll be much happier with him here back in Aus.

Sometimes I just can't wait for the next person to put a comment on Pye because I really want to play!

Internet is working and very fast too.

I've got my activity worked out and I think I can do my whole thing as soon as we get back. Please note that I did say think. Two more days til we're back at TPS. No more sleep-ins or late breakfasts. Just get up and go.

Any news about Took's new laptop? Hope she got it.

Mom says we aren't any good with geography, especially in other countries. She also said she was too old to start learning new stuff now. We did visit, but we couldn't help out.
