World Water Day!! With water balloons!! And dogs!! And exclamation marks!!

A water piñata is a great way to cool off on a summer day. Instructions on the linked site helpfully note that you should put the thin end of the funnel into the balloon to fill it, and that you should tie the balloon off when filled. In Africa, mud or dirt can be substituted for water.

The editorial staff of Waterblogged.info (me) has decided to end a very long posting hiatus (i.e.; a lengthy period of slothful and inexcusable neglect)—by acknowledging—nay, celebrating!—World Water Day!  I’ll let serial social entrepreneur (??) Jonathan Greenblatt at Huffington Post gush about all of the reasons why you should party like it’s 2010 and Jonathan Daniel Harris (no relation to the previously mentioned Jonathan)—also at Huffington—enumerate all of the ways YOU can get involved.

But, asks YOU, what’s a water celebration without water balloons? You’ll get no argument from Simon, a Jack Russell terrier performance artist who marked the occasion by ceremoniously wasting a gallon or so of water and then—with an ironic twist worthy of Chekov—acting as though he should be rewarded for it.

    Just letting you know that I started my own website/blog – forever it is worth.

    And I really enjoyed your dog and the water balloons.
