Good news: I got a B in my Anatomy and Physiology class!! Yea me!!! I knew I was doing pretty well, but not that well! Hey! I actually have a brain after all!! Hopefully I can keep it intact over the next couple of months before fall starts up again. I'll try my best not to kill too many of my brain cells in the meantime.
Other stuff. Sad to hear about all these monstrous storms and tornadoes out in the 'alley'. I know from experience how terrifying it can be. I sure as hell don't miss those days in Arkansas. When I was like two maybe three, we had six tornadoes in one day. The one that hit that night was the most destroying. It blew out some windows in our house, tore some shingles off and left alot of debris and baseball sized hail. Yes, baseball sized hail. Scary. Needless to say, I was terrified of storms for a long, long time. I still to this day get a little panicky when our storms get a little on the heavy side. But being here in the mountains that's a rarity thank God. Now, on the flip side I have seen some awesome photos on the internet of these storms building. I think the pictures are beautiful in a tragic sort of way. I don't know how to describe it without going into some sort of soliloquy to which I will spare you. I think Mother Nature is just astounding. Truly amazing. If I'm lucky I'll be able to post some of the pics I've seen.
Other stuff: I'm trying my best to quit smoking. I've been taking the Chantix which has been really cool. Most days I do pretty good. Right now, not so good. I did really well at work but now that I'm home it's free range. And for the most part it's the habit. I'm not really physically craving one, I just want it. I soo enjoy it still. That's the sad part. It's a wonderfully satisfying bad habit. Damn those tabacco companies. But it's a must. It's time to stop procrastinating, plus I'm having some oral surgery to remove what's belived to be an ossified fibroma from my gum line that I've had since childhood. My dentist always thought it was a calcium deposit of which is common but it's continued to grow as I've gotten older and has gotten bigger over the last couple of years. I had a more proper diagnosis yesterday with an oral surgeon. Time to chip away before it gets worse. Yuk. The healing process will go alot quicker if I was a non-smoker. This is something I really need to focus on and truly kick the habit. Plus save some money which of course will go to gas. (I'm leaving that topic alone.) This is my first effort ever. I think I'm doing pretty good for a first timer. If I could find a nice pair of man lips to plant my lips on instead of a cigarrette I think that would be just dandy. Wish me luck in that department.
On last thing: Look up 'an engineer's guide to cat's ' on youtube for a good laugh. This dude is so dry that you can't help but laugh. And the cat's did exactly what a cat should do. Act uninterested when the human owner is trying to be productive. Truly worth the six minutes of watching.
Anyway, that's about it folks. Hope all is well in your corner's of the world! elizinashe
