I had no idea that fireflies were synchronous like this. I spent almost every summer dusk of my childhood catching them, putting them in little jars, and then letting them go en masse at the end of the night. Good times, those.

My Dad got chicken pox from us (his kids) when he might have been 35. It was a god awful week for him. My memory of it (I was a child) was that he was covered in the small bumps that my sisters and I had a few of, if that many. Read more

Ghostbusters scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. Even the Stay-puft marshmallow man did! Of course I was six years old so... and Slimer made me not want to eat hotdogs for a while.

I love everything about the post. I flippin' clicked it for the headline alone. So thank you for continuing to make my Monday awesome! (Seriously there's been a strange confluence of events that have made me have a great morning. On a Monday! On a holiday week! I wish I could pack this morning up and give it to Read more

You know what? If I totally wasn't very, very south of this location I just might. But there'd have to be alcohol involved this time, not coffee.

And neat and neat and neat and neat! Earth science just getting me all excited this morning (also, coffee, lots of coffee). Cannot wait till Littleswimming is older so we can dork out together! (or she can run and hide from her Mom, whatever.)

Actually I have one even better. The ending will be choose-your-own-adventure-style and your answer will always be wrong. The dragons and white walkers will be cut due to time restraints (that his very own fans have placed on him, you jerks). A Greyjoy will rule from the Iron Throne. Read more
