I Missed Yom KIppur

I didn't go to services this year; I was in the hospital. Then, when I was out if the hospital, I still wasn't well enough to go to work and I've yet to see a live sukkah.

It's not heart attack serious, but it looks like I'm moving into a new phase of the Crohns. A much worse phase. I'll try going to work tomorrow after my dr appointment. There is so much to do and not enough people to do it. I'm needed there.

I loosely belong to three book clubs although there is one that I have only been to once.

Anyway, yesterday, I picked up (that is, e-sent to my Kindle) the science fiction classic Dune. There was enough time for me to actually buy a used version and have it sent to me, but it is over 800 pages long and I just don't have that kind of room.

In other news, I went to the gym yesterday for the first time in months and months. Now my legs hurt.

My mission, which I chose to accept, is to try out Arm & Hammer's Truly Radiant toothpaste along with their Truly Radiant deep clean Spinbrush. I got both for free through Smiley360 and I should have a radiant (more radiant?) smile in just five days. I will let you know how it goes.

Better Living Through Enemies

As a general rule, the more connections you have to people, the healthier you are. There's scientific evidence somewhere that I can go find if you really want me to, but this is just a quick note so nothing fancy.

Anyway, they alway mean friends, but I have found something else. Another way. Yes.

There is a person at work. My arch nemesis. I just have the one, so it makes her arch. Anyway, I rarely see her, but when I do, it's usually in the elevator.

From now on, I shall take the stairs.

You Might Be An Organ Donor, But Are You an ALL Organ Donor?

I was quite surprised to find out that even if you are an organ donor, they won't take your brain. Even if you've checked the box off on your driver's license. In fact, there isn't currently even a central repository to make your wishes known. However, you can at least let Harvard Medical know. Fill out form here: FORM

I recommend this article. Brains. Brains!

Doing the Same Thing Over and Over Again and Expecting Different Results?

Come people call that insanity and think themselves clever.

Others call it practice.

Dear New York Lottery

Yesterday, I saw this ad on the subway:

I will now preface the following by saying, "Yes, I know what they mean. But that doesn't mean they shouldn't actually say what they mean."

Dear New York Lottery,

Are you aware that your ad means that gold does not glitter*? 

I believe you meant to say that not all that glitters is gold. Since your sole mission is to raise money for our public school system, I think that it would be perfectly fine for you to correct all the ads. You could probably just plaster over the incorrect part.

Thank you for your time and consideration.



*Start with:  All that glitters is not gold.
  This means: Everything that glitters is not gold.
  Also: I've written glitters enough time that it looks wrong. Like it is really litters, but with a silent g.

Optimists are insane; certifiable.
But they turn the world towards any tomorrow in which I would want to live.
