Sliding into Home

Did a little research on the web today. You have to fast and abstain from alcohol before the "fancy" cholesterol test - the one that gives you the count of all three kinds of cholesterol. Oddly, the web sites seem to agree that the proper alcohol abstention period is 24 hours, not 3 days.

Iceman and Seiborg were having a good time razzing me about Dr. Jellyfinger on the way to lunch today. Bozzetto, bless is soul, said, "What's Jellyfinger?"

Iceman had the best line: "You know there's trouble if he has both hands on your shoulders when he's doing it."

I'm not 40 yet, so there's only a 50/50 chance of the jellyfinger.

I wonder if most people who order bacon cheeseburgers don't actually like the combination of bacon and cheeseburger, but it sounds so good they order it anyways.

Do you actually like bacon on your cheeseburger?
Of course I do. It's nature's perfect food.
No, but it just sounds so good I keep ordering it hoping this one will be fantastic.
If you cared at all about the planet, you'd be a vegan like I am.
Hey, good luck with that cholesterol test.

Last night as I was lying in bed, I realized I was supposed to write a section for a conference paper submission that I had completely forgotten about. Luckily, my space allocation was 1000 characters. Not 1000 words. 1000 characters. Not including spaces, though. First thing this morning, I wrote up about half of what I had to say, and it came to 1800 characters. I then spent the next half-hour removing any sign of eloquence from the writing, and I got it down to 1420 characters. That's almost exactly the length of this entry. I sent it in to the consolidator anyways.

I hate bacon and I don't think I've ever in my life gone to the store to buy bacon but that hasn't stopped me from ordereing a bacon cheeseburger when I'm really drunk;)
