Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.

Don't take me too seriously.

Are they selling them to 20 somethings?

I keep not-reading them, but all these grumpy old writers keep publishing them.

Fuck everything about that.

I imagine that gets the 'ol lizard brain up and active.

How long after until you start to feel mostly human again? How often do you do this kind of drill? Until you're spraying it on your eggs in the morning?

Dude one of these days Sean and Chili Klaus are going to really get themselves in trouble. That last special gave me sympathy heartburn. Once you migrate from super-hot peppers to extracts you cross the line into chemical weapon territory pretty damn quick.

That reminds me, hey nowaypablo have you been pepper sprayed yet? Like, as part of training?

Anti-spambot measure.

New users can be 'promoted' by existing users to be allowed to post links. ATM, if you're a new user you need to complete one hubwheel with comments before you are allowed to post.

OR

An old fart like us can 'promote' them.

Feeling lots of things all at once. Mostly unpleasant. At the most petty level, I'm upset that I was asleep when we nearly had a Tunguska event here in Michigan.

Spending the rest of the afternoon in the lab with some TB positive blood, so I don't have the luxury of not being present and aware and focused.

I was asleep, I'm a little ashamed I missed it.

Hiking is awesome.

You're awesome.

If you say she's awesome, I bet she is.

Have fun!

I love it when folks actually go back to look through tags.

I'm a Lovecraft fan in general (Racism aside) and this story has always been very poignant.

What's your favorite Lovecraft story?
