I'm looking at my sister's website again in preparation for writing her a nice, long letter.

If you're wondering what to get me for Christmas...
5. Are the bedrooms at below zero temperature?
Absolutely! Around -5 degrees Celsius is the indoor temperature in Icehotel. If outdoor temperature falls below -30, then it may be -8 inside, but not colder!
6. Can I really sleep well in Icehotel?
Of course. All overnight guests at Icehotel have a guided tour upon check-in either at 2 pm or 5 pm - whichever suits You best. Then You will find out how to actually sleep well during the night. You can read more about this under Equipment.
There's also a church and a theater. Here's the story.
If you'd rather not go that far into the Arctic Circle, you can visit Milan, Italy, and have a drink out of an ice glass at the Icebar (ads), which opens tomorrow.
Another species of ape may be in the process of being discovered in the Congo.
Listen to the varied sounds of foreign accents.
You know what to expect when you visit the Stupid Store. This game is pretty interesting. And this is pretty evil. There is also a stupid cartoon theater for those of us who like to waste time watching flash animations.
Can you find the naked bodies in these pictures?
Personalize your candy hearts.

I played this US geography test from Metafilter and failed it the first four times I played it, but I've been doing it a couple times a day the past three days or so. I can now do them in alphabetical order without a mistake (rather than fill in the ones you know and then figure out the rest). Next I'll get them in any random order.
I thought it would be good to find something like this for the rest of the world, since I have a typical American's grasp of world geography and feel a little embarassed about it.
This quiz is pretty straightforward. I got 81 out of 111 on the Europe quiz (damn those Balkan States).
Syvum dot com has a vast array of tests I haven't really explored yet.
