A Groggy Weekend Why Files...

These files will be pretty short today. I'm not sure I can focus all that well, and my typing skills are severely lacking.

WHY #1: Why do I hate myself? Drove to a competition yesterday where my oldest* was involved... it was about two hours away. Not a big deal, except that the competition got behind on schedule, so we didn't even get to leave there until after midnight. Gah. I'm dragging today. At least my family was kind enough to let me take a long afternoon nap. Either that, or they were scared to NOT let me take a nap. I'm pretty sure I was somewhat mean earlier today. Like possibly growing horns and flashing some glowing red eyes. You know. The usual.

WHY #2: Why have I not yet posted my prom picture? Oh, I will. I will.

WHY #3: Cannibals usually prefer going solo at meal time. Ummm... why is this news? Or the better question: why are there "new calculations" suggesting this trend? Is someone actually studying-- on a regular basis-- the habits of cannibals? Should I be worried? One of my supervisors eats alone a lot. Now that I think about it, when I forget to stop working and eat lunch (imagine that), I usually end up in the break room by myself or heading out to pick something up... by myself!! Does that mean I'M a cannibal? or that I have cannibalistic tendencies?** [www.livescience.com]


Oooh... and one more.

WHY #4: Why am I so happy about my new Google theme on my Google home page??? It's. So. Cute. It changes according to the time of day. Love it. Yeah, I guess I'm easily amused.

And that concludes this episode of the Weekend Why Files.


*I know that it's technically supposed to be my "eldest," but that just sounds too pretentious, even for me. How about I just keep calling her "Daughter #1" on the blog. Sounds easier.

** This "Why" is totally tongue-in-cheek, for those who are about to defend the study. Please. Don't.

I must be a cannibal too. I eat alone all the time. Maybe we should get together. I'd love to have you for dinner.

Bad joke. I apologize

So now when I see someone dining alone, I have to worry that's a people sandwich they're eating? Or hey, are those human beans? ;)

Okay, now that reminds me of a friend of mine in college who was a little tipsy while dining at a Chinese restaurant and got all freaked out at the thought of "Human Beef." "That's HuNan, Teresa." "Oh, thank god." Hee.

I think this study really flies in the face of all the previous cannibal information I've gathered - mostly from bad movies. Are the researchers planning on doing a follow up survey on zombies?
