Tomorrow, the Golden Globe nominees will be announced.
In the meantime, I'll remember other globes. The first globe I ever really saw was the brownish globe my grandparents kept in their living room in South Dakota. I think it's in my grandma's basement now.
For a season I taught geographyy, we talked about and looked at globes as well.
I don't think anyone ever has gotten me a snowglobe before...but that's okay, because I don't really want one. I once really wanted a geode (sort of like the one pictured left) and I think my mom and dad bought it for me. It had a fake gold minor in it. For some reason, I really liked it (I still kind of do).
I think I tried selling it at a garage sale once, and it didn't sell, and for some reason, I've packed it along with me to college and so forth ever since.
I think it's funny that the earth is the only planet in our socal system that doesn't derive from Greek/Roman Mythology. I guess that's because people probably called the earth something or other before the Greek's even existed.
Before I got married I think the idea of having a globe seemed like a fun "household decoration." Now that am I married, I don't want anymore decorations, especially a round one that I can't easily hide in the closet.
