Okay, the centipedes bother me, because I HATE centipedes. (shudder)

Here’s an interesting study:

Finger length predicts physically aggressive personalities

I particularly liked the quote from the author of the paper.

Dr. Peter Hurd initially thought the idea was “a pile of hooey,” but he changed his mind when he saw the data.

However, the research only holds true for men.

Speaking of Odd

Either I’m losing my mind, or I’m listening to an instrumental Ozzy Ozbourne cover on XM’s Beyond Jazz channel.

Maybe it’s just a sign that I should go take a long hot shower and try to relax some more.

Movie Timeline

This is far more interesting than I had initially expected it to be: Movie Timeline. What is movies were true? What would the timeline of the past and future look like?

This is amusing. In a very, very strange way.

Also took me a minute to get, the first time I looked at it.

But it’s also strange. So don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Find Your Nemesis

Andy send me a link to Nemester.

You can’t sign up yet, but when you can, all things considered, I probably should. Just to keep track, you know.

Goodbye, and Good Luck

Good Luck Gina!


It’s been a tough 5 1/2 years, but we’ve worked hard and managed somehow.

So in closing, one of my favorite exchanges:

We were explaining to a new graduate assistant how, because of the layout of the lab, we spent more time with each other than we did with our husbands.

Gina: We spend so much time together…
Michelle: …we even finish each others sentences.
Gina: It’s like being married…
Michelle: …only without the sex.
Gina: It’s exactly like being married.

So I’m not just losing a co-worker, I’m losing a wife.

Speaking of Insulting

Dear Eliot Spitzer,

Fuck you.

Appalachia is not an insult. It’s my home.
