Ms. Twixt has just learned of two kids' inaugural events: the Children's Inaugural "Ball" (not a ball, at all; more of a day of activities) and MTV's Be The Change Inaugural Ball. Both events are on January 18th, and there are very few details thus far. The Every Child Matter's event is free but sold-out. There is a waiting list on their website, but odds are good at being able to attend because it is unlikely that folks who did already get tickets will stay for the entire 5 hours. No info as yet on the MTV event tix.
The link to the Every Child Matter's event is here, and the link to Service Nation to sign up for news and possibly tickets for the MTV event is here and the MTV press release.

Okay, I don't know WHAT rock I've had my head under, but Ms. Twixt totally missed the boat on this one: Kiss My Math by Danica McKellar (she of "The Wonder Years" fame - a show that should've lived on FOREVER) is a new book for 'tween girls about surviving and thriving in middle-school math. Danica was on the Today show last week and had yet ANOTHER book out earlier called Math Doesn't Suck. Girls, if you haven't read these, you MUST, MUST, MUST!! It's actually a math cheat-sheet full of really good tips and tricks. Danica majored in Math at UCLA so knows what she's talking about it - all that and is an actor, too! Definitely check it out on her website

THIS is crazy!! A five-pound glob of Silly Putty ?!?!?! What size is the egg it comes in? We love Silly Putty in all its incarnations: GID, neon, color changing, etc. But this is totally different. Would make a great holiday gift - hint, hint ;-)
