Tons o' thing [May. 23rd, 2001|03:02 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
So hot — kinda good. kinda bad.

Allergies — not good at all. been draining snot out my nose all day onto everything. and the occasional sneeze containing with it chunks of booger. most wonderful. need more allergy medicine.

Papers — history paper 2 got delayed again because history paper 1 still isn't back. today history paper 3 got assigned, which is due friday, at the same time as history paper 2. Grrrr. Oh, and my classics paper is due tomorrow. Good thing about my history paper 3: nobody in the class has been reading. One guy asked, "How much does the book cost?" to which somebody asked, "What? You didn't even buy the book." His answer: "Shit, I don't got money."

Ice gross — our ice tastes gross lately. should we wash the ice cube trays? or maybe our water is bad all the sudden? disappointing. i love sucking on ice all day.

Squirrel Mail — I love the squirrel. Very sexy. Need to setup SSL, though. Debating buying a certificate. Probably will. Need to finish migrating all my stuff over from old bradfitz.com to new machine. Stupid school.

....

Think I'll work on papers now. Kinda hard to think about that thought as I sit here all sweaty without a shirt in my leather chair looking out at the lake and all the people on boats having a good time. Boats = water = fun = no school = no work = no allergies = water skiing = fun. Did I mention fun?

Thank you, brad. There will be no chunky Minestrone soup for me tonight.

to alieviate sinus.. cut down on dairy. milk and animal protein

and a disgusting but surefire way to clean out sinus and dry out:

Fresh horseraddish ground up with a tsp of vineager on a cracker.

Id honestly believe sinus would be almost better.

That or Allegra or Clariton. Though I have to say those aren't even that great when there's a lot of crap in the air.

clean out your fridge

Your ice probably tastes bad because you have something bad, or strong smelling in the fridge. The air circulates between the fridge and freezer making the ice pick up some of those smells. Onions are the worst.

Most interesting.

Ice?

Erk? Brad, are you anemic?

Anemics like sucking and chewing on ice...in fact, that's one of the symptoms of anemia.

Along with recent blood donation, craving red meat, spinach, raisins, beans and/or liver.

I *knew* my RBC count was down once when I actually didn't get totally grossed out at the very thought of eating liver.

Drink water, too, it'll help your allergies. Along with any number of stuff you can buy from a really good herbalist.

Re: Ice?

I like iced tea.
I drink tea.
Ice is left.
I'm lazy.
I don't want to go upstairs and get more tea.
I suck on ice.
Ice tastes funny.

Not anemic (as far as I know). Don't crave those other foods you mention.

not sure wether to laugh or be disgusted at the thought of you sitting there with a string of ooze between your keyboard and your nose...

Maybe this is awfully posh of me, but I use bottled water for my ice cubes and I never have a problem...

If you are just using the SSL cert for yourself, just be your own certificate authority....

My family and some friends are also going to be using it.

And I'm also going to use it for my IMAP over SSL, and Outlook Express shows the goddamn warning dialog everytime I do anything if I use my own cert.

Allergies and ice.

Allergies: There's herbal stuff that may help your body against pollen. Check your local GNC. And if you're willing to go the prescription route, Allegra-D rocks the llama's ass. Yes, it does.

Ice: Yes, wash the ice cube trays. And maybe install a filter on the kitchen faucet you fill the trays from.

IN the meantime.

Feel better.

    It's a long dash.... called an "em-dash".

    What browser are you using that doesn't understand that?

    There's nothing better than trying to hide the fact that your sinuses are draining onto your paper while you're taking a quiz. Oh how I love allergies.

    Then you get those big water spots on the paper, and even if you dry them out it gets warped there. I always poke myself in the eyes so people think I was crying instead. Girls like guys that cry when they take tests, it means they're sensitive. <g>

    Ice gross = Old ice absorbs the smells that pervade the fridge. The older the ice the "tastier" it gets.

    Also washing your trays every month helps.
