1. In fifty years when no one remembers what it was like without mandated healthcare, what will it be like? How will my kids feel about it?
3. The other day I discovered looking at peoples faces. Each face is different. The part I find most weird is seeing how people of other ethnicity faces are different from each other. For the first time I was able to not see the difference in color, but to see color as I do in rocks. In rocks/minerals one of the most important things I taught the intro kids is to never ever ID a mineral based on color. Color doesn't matter, it's how the rock is made up and what it is made out of that defines what it is. You appreciate the colors in rocks, but color is not generally used in your analysis and conclusion. How did it take this long for me to apply it to people?
4. Why is the Penis game a thing? Why does the PEN 15 club exist? Why isn't there a Vagina game? Or the Vagina Club? So I'm no longer ten and couldn't immediately think up of a funny Vagina Club joke. Equal rights is equal rights and I want vagina jokes.
5. The heat is making Ackbar moody and angry.
6. I have found an interest in a new hobby. I find hobbies scary because they usually only last a short period of time and then I move on to the next best thing and I feel like a failure for not sticking to one thing and becoming an expert at it before moving on. It has always been that I never finish a project before starting the next one. So to stop that from happening, I try not to start projects.
7. Oh yeah, the new hobby is not really new. It's playing Magic: The Gathering card game. I've actually been playing it off and on since 6th grade, but now I have friends that have gotten into it. I really like building my deck...that's where the strategy is I think, not during the play, but setting yourself up before hand for a good game. The point is, I am enjoying having a hobby that involves complex thinking and planning but does not stress me out. It's not about winning (I'd say that I win 50% of the time now that I've started drinking Tiger Blood), but I find the point to be creating the deck that I want to create. I have two more deck ideas: One is going to be an All Rat Deck and another is going to be with the Soulbond creatures.
8. "Mermaids don't have pussies. Cats hate getting wet." That was my closing argument with Josh one morning on whether or not you can have sex with a mermaid. I say no. Do you think The Little Mermaid wanted to become human just so she could have two legs?? I think not....she made it very clear she wanted to get it on with the prince.
9. I feel that in some ways adults have betrayed me. I was always taught that if I was in trouble to go to a policeman. That all policemen are nice people and are your friend. And I did once, and the policeman was rude, didn't understand why I was talking to him, and could have cared less about my problems. That is always my experience when interacting with cops. That's why I don't like authority...they rarely prove to me that they are worthy of the responsibility. Okay, so maybe the problem is more that adults taught me that policemen were superheros and always perfect, but in real life they are just regular people working to get a paycheck and probably hate kids.
10. Once on Christmas Eve, Santa came to visit at my Oma's house and passed out chocolate letters. Then he left, and some of my older cousins saw him leaving on his sleigh in the sky out the window. They crowded the window and I was too small to get up close or to see over their heads. It was a very disappointing time for me. I wanted to see flying magic reindeer.
11. The AC is making me moody. I moved down here to be HOT and you can't go anywhere with out AC and nothing is set up right to turn it off and regulate the heat with out it. I have to dress for winter in the morning because my office is so darn cold I needed layered sweaters to be warm...DURING A HEAT WAVE.
