rather epic

i just watched this video on youtube and laughed so hard that i was wheezing. granted, i'm sick so wheezing is something i'm highly capable of at the moment. but believe me, this shit is funny. the boys at rathergood never fail to disappoint me.

license to ill

so i've been sick now for, what, three days? four? something like that. i had some blood work done yesterday to make sure i don't have a problem with my immuno-goblins.* my doctor thinks that, since i'm always getting sick and sleeping for 20-hour periods of time for no reason, i might have an immunodeficiency that needs to be treated. not really entirely sure what this treatment entails, although i do know that it happens once a month and involves large needles. ye gods...
in other news, studies have shown that spooning with a small dog increases the release of endorphins into one's body, thus rendering one happier. okay, so i made that up. but seriously, don't knock it till you've tried it. my jack russell terrier, chico, is a hell of a cuddler.**

*actually called immunoglobulins, but calling them goblins makes them sound more awesome and less disease-like. 

**also, possibly, a better boyfriend than any human i've ever dated. just saying.

the apple vs. the tree: a comparative study

the following is a transcript of a conversation i had with my mom during a game of scrabble today:

mom: you can't put down "jenny". that's not a word.
me: yeah it is! "spinning jenny"?
mom: what the hell is a spinning jenny?
me: it's a farming tool invented by jethro tull* during the agricultural revolution.
mom: isn't he the guy who plays the flute??
me: no. you're thinking of the band jethro tull because they have a flute player.
mom: but wait...i thought...whoa.

my mom is awesome. :)

*i've just been informed that the spinning jenny was invented by james hargreaves circa 1764. jethro tull, though also a british agriculturist during the revolution, died 23 years before this happened. he invented the seed drill. so i was close, but no ciggy. thanks for setting me straight, wikipedia.
