No doubt, Mr. 1, and a very catchy phrase you have coined there. I suspect many shall refer to Dec. 7 as a date which will live on in infamy.

Yeah, there's a series about a kid wizard that is printed on that paper stuff...

I'm in an exam now, and I actually had a student, in my Junior-level Physiological Psychology course (neuroscience, essentially) ask me to verify that O2 was oxygen and CO2 was carbon dioxide. :{

Morning all. I'm feeling quite a bit better this morning. Woke up a bit stuffy. It the kind that you have to blow and blow and when it finally loosens, it flies out like a speeding bullet making you thankful that you bought the good brand of tissues.

Then there was the morning coughing. That Musinex really worked.

That's probably more than you wanted to know though. I was a bit late this morning.

As a doc once told me, a dose of Nyquil is about as useful as a glass of wine. They'll both help you sleep but won't help your symptoms much.

Good luck. How many fish do you have in your fishbowl?

I've been noticing edgar and bryan flip-flopping in and out of the fog - looks like you're at least in 3rd place (though I suspect higher). Congrats!

I've got 6, which is a lot for such a tank. The crank out a lot of waste, so I have to do frequent water changes. I'd like to get down to one, but adoptions have been few and far between (they were fish I bought for a class, and didn't have the heart to put them down afterwards)- so they stay in my office until they go belly up...

shirtderbystats.com says I'm in first by... 61 votes, but that's an estimate since both shan and I have been dropping out of the hotness (how they approximate fog votes). But she's closing in... I think I held her off, unless she scrapes up 40 more votes in the next two hours

SUCCESS! I generally get husband a hyacinth for Valentine's Day (he really likes flowers), but every year it's a crapshoot because there aren't a lot out yet and you don't want one that's blooming, you want one that's just in the bud stage. You also can't buy them ahead of time because the scent is so strong, no way to hide one. But after four stores, I found one. It's white, and I'd prefer blue or purple, but I'll take what I can get.

Great job! Yeah, ours won't pop out for another couple of weeks.

Oh, and I promised my wife that if I win the shirt.woot contest this week, I'd shave off my beard. In case you need extra incentive to vote, it'd make my wife really happy.

Congrats on the find. I love the smell of hyacinths.

When I got my first apartment in Maryland, someone gave me a hyacinth bulb kit. I have a brown thumb, so I didn't expect it to grow, but it did and got really, really tall. My husband (boyfriend at time) came over and was talking about gardening or something, and I went to show him my prized plant that I was so proud of, and the damn thing fell over and the stem snapped as I was carrying it into the living room and I just about cried.

that's awesome.

Those ZZ Top guys got nothin' on you.

Hey,some interesting beard/ZZ Top trivia: the three guys' names are Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard . The first two are the ones with the awesome beards, and Frank Beard is the one who is actually clean shaven.

Even if you don't win, shaving that beard would make a great Valentine's present. Major points.

Have you ever had to use someone else's computer mouse & keyboard and it was so gross, you need to go wash your hands afterwards. I have to sometimes. Grosses me out. It's got food crumbs, gunk, and grease all over it. just finished washing my hands. Blech.

Yeah, I hear you. I clean mine all the time. When we went through the school's renaming computers a couple summers ago, everytime I sat down at a computer, I was popping the gunk off the bottom of the mouse with my fingernail. Then I'd pop out the mouseball and clean the rollers the same way. And people wondered why their mouse didn't track well. Gag.

No, this is that hard gunk that gets pressed on to the bottom of the mouse around the gliders. It's partially dust but also oils from your hands, desk, etc.
