No, it's not an excuse to go out and grill your brains out
Nor is Memorial Day an excuse to drink beer as if it were water, although I did hear something the other day about the Memorial Day weekend being the 2nd biggest "drink like a fish" holiday - second only to that famous hangover heaven, New Year's Eve. (You know, the holiday where everyone wears... Sign in to see full entry.

Jemmie, you gave me ideas (thanks!)
I shamelessly stole the idea for this awarenes exercise from Jemmie211. This is what I'm aware of, internally: My own irritation that the living room was changed around without my permission Being displeased that I can no longer find the notes to my autobiography The need to change others'...

Lord Bruce Almighty
OK - all right, already. I've been reading entirely too much of the entertainment headlines of late. And I've been seeing a lot of buzz about the latest Jim Carrey film, Bruce Almighty. From what Entertainment Weekly says about it, it's similar in tone to Carrey's Ace Ventura, Pet Detective or Liar,... Sign in to see full entry.

I wish I could teach in a med school
Given my medical history, I feel I've almost literally been to med school - God knows the prices hospitals charge are much higher than tuition at the associated med schools. Because I've had that extensive experience, I wonder at times if I am capable of teaching at a med school. In fact, I've even... Sign in to see full entry.

An example of AOL's valiant fight against spam
Many of you - especially those who use AOL to access things like BN - are familiar with AOL's PR efforts regarding spam. The latest salvo in this effort is their trip to Capitol Hill, to convince people like John McCain about the nobility of their efforts. Well, I have a different perspective. I...

Sudden flashes of insight
I remember two specific occasions on which I solved a problem with a sudden flash of insight. The first was a literal problem - as in, a mathematical problem. I was in geometry, and doing pretty bad to boot - darn near flunked the course that grading period, as a matter of fact. Then, during a test,... Sign in to see full entry.

I read your comment on my last post, and I have to admit that I was tempted to start a flame war over it. But then, I decided that - guess what? - I'm a big girl, maybe even too good to act like an overgrown toddler having a temper tantrum. However, I would like to know exactly what you meant by...

It's your life - what are you going to do about it?
Just a quick thought before I go - we are each 100% responsible for our lives. No excuses, no whining. Therefore, it's your life. You are 100% responsible for how you live it. What are you going to do? Blame others for what you have chosen not to do? Sign in to see full entry.

What are your thoughts on "We become what we think about"?
Here are some ideas I've developed from reading on the subject. We don't suddenly become gorillas because we think about becoming gorillas. Instead, when we focus on something - and endeavor to do that "something," whatever it is - we screen out those situations that are incongruent with that... Sign in to see full entry.

I wish I could remember this fellow's name
The other day, I mentioned an incident involving Glenbrook North seniors hazing Glenbrook North juniors, with plenty of social lubricant AKA beer being passed around by a few parents. One of the students who was going to sue the school over her suspension had a good reason for suing the school - or,... Sign in to see full entry.
