Fall Equinox

September 24, 2009




Yesterday was the fall equinox and many of my facebook/blogging friends were up late last night in an attempt to make brooms stand on their own. I unfortunately was not able to do it with my POS straw broom but I WAS able to balance an egg on my kitchen table!!

You can see a standing broom on my friend Javajunkee’s blog .

      no i didnt throw it.. throwing things makes a certain 3 year old feel its okay to throw things and i’m afraid windows might get broken.. but.. I did take it apart and step on it while grumbling something about dickheads and things not going my way.. *shrugs*

    OK everyone! A friend called me this morning about this broom balancing equinox thing. I humored myself and decided to try it. My angled broom has now been standing on its own since early this morning. I have walked around it, loaded the dishwasher, cooked dinner etc… It still remains standing… SO BIZARRE!!! I even freaked the cable guy when he cam over this afternoon. He was amazed by the balancing broom.
    Who knew???
