Some time ago, Beth Tehilo, while receiving a Sunshine Award, mentioned she had green eyes. She passed the award on to me, and though I failed to mention my eye color (it's green) you can see it in my captivating video. Then, I passed the award on to Lisa and Lizzi, who both mentioned they have green eyes.
Now, truly green eyes are not that common, and if you've got them you carry around a certain amount of pride (1) (the more honest call it vanity). So, it was no surprise that a few more green-eyed ladies came out of the woodwork. And with them, they brought fine gifts. There's a green-eyed lady song (2) and a drink (3).
So get ready to crank up the youtube and pour yourself some pineapple rum (actually, I'll stick to bourbon). But first, The Science Lesson:
I did a little green-eye-googling to flesh out this post, and guess what I discovered? Recently the Mendelian recessive trait has been disproven. What we were taught in school about eye color before 2007 was not correct.
WHAT?!?!? I knew when Pluto was downgraded from proper planet status, but this? I never really got the hang of that big R, little r business in the first place, so really it's a huge relief (4). It turns out eye color is determined by genetic mutation, "which could be beneficial or nonbeneficial." You can read more by following the link above. It's really rather interesting. In another link I discovered only 2% of the population is truly green-eyed. So, indeed we are rare, beautiful birds (5). Beneficial ones, too.
Now, turn on that song and pour your drink because it's time for The PAR-TAY!
I was chosen to be the hostess of the gang (6), and as hostess, I've decided we will play a game (7). It won't be too hard since some of these ladies have already posted their pictures in a post, but we'll have some fun. Whoever can identify them all correctly first wins a prize! I don't know what that prize will be, but it will definitely be something super cool!
The members of the gang are Angela, Beth, Dyanne, Kari, Kristi(2), Lisa, Lizzi, Rebecca, Sarah (me), and Yvonne (8 and 9 because I'm thankful for the gang but also the members I didn't already know).
I'll post their numbered pictures below, and your job is to guess who's who in a timely manner. Then, if you're first to get them all right, I'll send you the supercool prize!
So, without further eloquence (without further eloquence), the game is afoot! And may the odds be ever in your favor.
Green-eyers can participate too (even though they have a distinct advantage). That's the advantage of being a member of the club! But don't wait to watch their answers or you may miss out!
Hmmm...#10. All those who comment in addition to posting their guesses.
