Saturday Shillery: Paulas Choice

If you know me, I have raved about these products for a long time, just to my friends. But I thought it was high time Paulas Choice got its own shillery post. Over the past couple of years, people in the skeptic community have mentioned wanting skepticism to branch out into ‘lady topics’, like encouraging…

Some folks have been worried about me, so I thought Id write this post to mention that I am okay, Arnie is okay, everything is okay with me. In the seven years Ive lived in OK, Ive been though a lot of storms. Its only been bad enough for me to come to work (I…

Good News/Bad News

GOOD NEWS!  There are lots of different ways to do science. I like to tinker with/build stuff. After over two years of banging my head against a wall, another of my inventions, one I really wanted, is finally working!!!!! BAD NEWS!  Its only working at ~33% of capacity. I want 100%. GOOD NEWS!  I know…

I get migraine headaches. They crack me up– My mom and bro get them too– but we all have different triggers, different warning signs, different migraine course/severity, different solutions, it doesnt make any sense. I think mine are pretty funny.  I start out by feeling warm.  Not ‘hot’, but like, you know how when you…

Wait till next year!

EVERYTHING is blue/orange/navy.  If it aint, were painting it. This is the building my boxing gym is in. hehehehe “Durantula”. But…

Ray Bradbury has died…

One of my favorite books of all time– ‘The Martian Chronicles‘. It doesnt matter how many times I read it… The same stories, the same lines cause me to sob uncontrollably, from awe of humanitys potential, from mourning humanitys lost potential, from thinking about the great things we have achieved, from thinking about The End…

brb, sry

Sorry, guys– family emergency this weekend = no blogging. Glad I am not a physician, glad other people are, and nurses are the best people on Planet Earth. While Im sitting here in the ICU, Id really appreciate some funny videos/links/anything to distract me. Everything is fine (fine-ish?) now, but Im going nuts. Everything is…

Mawage.

BACK!! Went to a wedding this weekend. Actually, was in a wedding this weekend. I had a blast, everything went off without a hitch, and it completely and utterly reinforced my opinion that I want nothing to do with marriage. I just have no emotional or practical need or desire for it. Its not because…
