Dear whatever insect (I think a moth) that decided that my herb garden is the perfect place to start a family:

Monday will reach the high 60's, and Tuesday the mid-70's, btw. Oh Texas...

The tragedy to all this is that all that temperate weather earlier fooled our peach and apricot trees into blooming. The apricot tree was super-special tragedy because we planted that damn tree when we first moved into the house more than 10 years ago, but this is the only year it's actually had blossoms (and ergo, the potential for fruit). But with SUDDENLY! FROST!, those poor blossoms are probably going to meet a poor end. My dad was so giddy about the apricot tree finally not being a space-hogging bucket o' fail for once, too. So long, peach and apricot crop of 2010. It would've been nice to eat you, but alas... Maybe next year. ;_;

Also, a bunny family had taken up residence under that same apricot tree. In the days leading up to the sudden frost, my mom counted five tiny little bunnies. When the snow started falling, my parents actually worried about the baby bunbuns first. I d'awwww'd. I hope they're okay. ;_;

P.S. Woo, glad the House finally passed it. The federal funding of abortion bruhaha is a bit of a disappointment, but you win some and lose some. Overall, it's a pretty big win. Awesome. :)

It's kinda funny, I hardly ever post anymore except for Random Medical Factoids whenever it comes around to test time:

- 50% of the risk for addiction is genetic, making it as "heritable" as stuff like high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and cancer.
- Clomipramine (trade name Anafranil) is a tricyclic antidepressant also used to treat OCD. More hilariously, in some patients, it carries a side effect of making you orgasm whenever you yawn.


ETA: "Primary Gain" is the term used to describe avoidance of the inciting psychological conflict, that is, keeping the internal conflict out of consciousness. Attention is instead given to the physical symptoms.
Huh. And here, I thought it was just pretentious-sounding pseudolingo.

Woo~ I've outlived Light. (Though the rain outside did try to drown me today, I swear.)

Yes, this deserved a post by itself.

Random medical factoids of the day: (P.S. The current block is the gastrointestinal block, so whee! Poop post! \:D/)
  • When performing a digital rectal exam, one of my instructors advise us to examine men with the patient in the lithotomy position (i.e. legs-up, Pap smear position) as oppposed to the bend-over-a-table position, stating that it gives them more modesty. I haven't asked any guys about this, but I just started cracking up. Yes, I'm actually 14 years old.
  • Women have longer colons than men, so as a population, women are indeed more full of shit. :P
  • One of the new therapies that is being explored for antibiotic-related infections like C. difficile is the "stool enema". Because antibiotics have this tendency to kill off all the good bacteria in your gut, it leaves you more prone to getting infected by the bad bacteria. Ergo, when you get the bad bacteria, it makes sense that replenishing all that good bacteria would help cure you. So, you get a healthy stool donor, blend up his/her stool into a water solution, and give it as an enema. EVEN BETTER, you can give it through the upper digestive tract. No, they don't make you drink it, but it does entail them sticking a tube up your nose or down your throat and dripping it through.

A manga by two mangakas about two mangakas trying to draw a manga to get an anime gets an anime.

Oh god, Shujin sounds so excitable. :3 Haven't watched more than the first vid (can't understand anything except a few words here and there, as well as whenever they say "Death Note", haha), but at least it looks like Mashiro and Takagi's voices are going to be okay.

Re: Geass, Renya, Taniguchi, et al.
I kinda hope they're both girls this time. It would amuse me to no end. A genderbent Lelouch fighting a genderbent geass-using Suzaku throwing shurikens with his/her robotic arm would be stupid, good fun. Stupid, good, canon fun. :P (It also occurs to me that this could easily tie into the dropped plot point about Suzaku's geass connection. JUST A SUPERHUMAN, LOL.) And didn't Taniguchi say he was done with all things Geass? oh u.

In other news, I get 10+ hours behind on my schoolwork each day. What awesome self-discipline.

I had Pakistani food for the first time today. I can't really tell the difference between Pakistani and Indian food, to be honest. Maybe more meaty and more tomatoey. But the great news is that they also had ras malai. Mmm, cheese + cream + sugar = a winning combination.

School is a bitch, but what else is new?

Regarding recent fandom news: Oh dear. In case it's an anime, we'll see if they re-trigger my propensity towards rambly walls of tl;dr.

Oh, and happy birthday, Your Majesty.

ETA: No matter what anyone says about CE Gundam, I'll never stop loving Freedom Gundam. That said, holy fuck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79Uo2EG1_so

ETA #2:

So does anyone actually make unironic Blingees? (The previous work of art was liberated with force from volfield.)

My dad's favorite music artists are Madonna, Sarah McLachlan, Celine Dion, and Enya. Manly playlist is exceedingly manly.

At least I rec'd Simon and Garfunkel to him.

  • The Frontier love triangle is going to be resolved, presumably more than "wings lol". (Sorry to disappoint, dasmondschaf.)
  • He designed Optimus Prime. This was a surprise, despite Starscream totally being a Valkyrie. Why is it a surprise to me that he did Starscream's design, as well?
  • He started working in high school.
  • He did SDF Macross at the age of 22 with no prior directorial/writing training. Frankly, if bullshitting as you go leads to such randomness as wrangling a tuna in space, I'm all for it.

Also, I took his comments about killing off major characters to be a stab at the grimdark Gundam crowd, which pleases me.

In other news, so tired...
