Stuff. Not good. Not bad. Just...stuff.

So lemme get this straight - I give up 50-60 hours of my precious time to tutor you, you *PASS* the class on your now-5th try, and you don't even tell me?  Fuck you.  Fuck both of you.

Oh man. I feel that one. I had to TA and grade exams for Intro Biochemistry tests occasionally way way back in the day (the days of the Green Board), and THE SAME FUCKING GIRL took the class 3 semesters in a row, and just bombed the SHIT out of it all 3 times. I still remember her name. People like that need to learn to Take. The Goddamned. Hint...your SIL included, by the sound of it. We were not all meant to be doctors and lawyers, some classes are weed-out classes, and being smarter than your friends and family and parents and neighbors doesn't make you "Capital S"-smart. "You can do anything if you just believe in yourself enough" is some doo-doo concocted by Walt Disney to sell movie tickets.

Or maybe it's just people from San Diego.

Got hit in the face with a large toaster oven today.  Hurt like hell, but no apparent major damage.  That would've been a fun one to explain to a doctor if I'd had to go see one.

Now you have to explain it to us.

My co-worker, who has been sick and having back issues for months now is trying this new holistic treatment of putting onions in her socks to leech out the toxins, or something like that.  It's been two weeks now to the point where I can hardly sit at my desk because the room has become overwhelmed with the stench of never ending onions. 

A quote from the book, Best Food Facts by Dr. Ruth MacDonald, chair and professor of the Department of Food Science & Human Nutrition at Iowa State University:

Quote

"No, onions do not absorb bacteria. The idea that a vegetable would attract and suck into itself bacteria from the air is not even logical. The onion may turn black because it would eventually rot from both cell breakdown events and bacterial contamination if you left it out, not because it absorbs germs. ...

Eating these vegetables provides antioxidants that can have health benefits, but they are unlikely to prevent or cure disease.

TL;DR: Eat onions, do not wear them.

Except on your belt, should that be the style at the time.

Opened up the staircase of our attic, and the damn thing attacked me.  Saw a shape coming out of the darkness above and had just enough time to turn my head, so it hit me in the side of the face instead of the nose.  Moral of the story - don't trust kids to stack things correctly.  Especially heavy things.

I seem to recall that both Stephen King and Theodore Sturgeon chronicled similar events, things did not end well from the human perspective.

You're gonna have to fill me in there.  Having a 3 year old means my reading typically doesn't extend past Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin or Dinosaur vs. The Potty.  He tries to limit me to no more than six words per page.  He makes my wife read the more advanced stuff like Charlie the Ranch Dog.

This is why you watch Christmas Vacation each and every year: to remind yourself about the attic stairs. Don't stand in front of them, don't sit on them when you get stuck. Thank you, Chevy Chase. Thank you.
