I hate Knoxville concert goers.
I went to the Ben Folds concert last night at the Valarium. Some things to note: -Drunken pole dancing by the stage will only get you unwanted attention (namely from creepy old men and security guards). Plus, you look retarded (yes, even with the hair-swinging). -If I tell you literally six times that I don’t want you to buy me a drink “since you’re going to the bar,” I...
In class this morning, we were discussing Rorschach tests (the inkblot ones) and we had actual copies of tests to look over. As classmate Andrew and I discussed our perspectives, here is what arose (note: I was taking this seriously…at first): Me: (pointing at an inkblot) I see lobsters. Andrew: I see Satan. Me: (trying to find the indicated inkblot) Really? Where? Andrew: Everywhere. Do...
MMR Vaccine/Autism Link Misreported →
So the doctor who started this whole movement of not vaccinating your kids because there’s a link with autism, intentionally misrepresented his data. TAKE THAT JENNY MCCARTHY!
Why I love Knoxville.
Top of the news this afternoon: “A Knoxville couple was saved this morning by a working smoke alarm.” Isn’t that the purpose of smoke alarms? Why is this on the news?
dangermania: I am currently reading a parenting book, written by a pediatrician, where the doctor tells a story about a twins patients of hers. The mother refused the MMR vaccine for her son but not her daughter because JENNY MCCARTHY said that more boys are Autistic than girls. This makes me quite ill.
Why is my dad asking me physics questions?
I'm so proud.
Kirby has cornered, and is growling at, a pillow.
I find something ironic in someone posting a note on facebook about how shameful it is that one of the top muscians on the Maryville College network is Allison Krauss, and then listing as their favorite musicians Coheed and Cambria, Blink-182, Rancid, NOFX, and a lot of horrendous others. This makes me a little sick, actually.
Kids say the darndest things...
Tonight I was babysitting my professor’s 4-year-old daughter, Mila. After her parents left, she was eating a snack and said, “Do you want some wine?” Then a few minutes later she informed me that she had “passed gas.” I found it wildly amusing that a four-year-old would use that phrase.
My problems are solved!
I just caught Kirby eating my history of psychology textbook, so I guess that means I don’t have to finish my readings. Since Kirby partially ate them.
I really don’t know how I’m expected to read around 200 pages of various dull textbooks in one night. It has taken me like two hours to get through like 20 pages of this crap. And seriously? Why the hell am I still learning about Locke and Freud, 3 years later?
I am painfully jealous of all my friends studying abroad in various amazing places this semester. I wish I had taken the chance to go to Germany when I had it.
Note to Northerners
It really makes me mad when people from New York or Pennsylvania (I don’t know why PA is so mean, but at least three Pennsylvanians I know, in particular, have done this) or other stupid northern states try to ruin my fun by saying things like, “You guys have no clue. This is sooo not snow.” I don’t care, dammit. I don’t care that you grew up with annoying amounts of...
Sorry, Mom, the meerkats were wrong.
Two minutes later:
And it makes him pee on the carpet?
For future reference, will not give Kirby baths late at night, because it apparently makes him want to run wild-bounce-off-the-furniture laps around the apartment for at least an hour.
