Tidbits for today-

Introducing my little brother
SVA is my pride and joy. My brother is a fantastic kid, has grown up to be an even better adult and continually keeps me laughing. As a professional, he works for an engineering company in a Texas and makes lots of money doing so. However, the only "downside" to this is that his job requires him to work some funky hours, 7P-7A. He has learned to work with this schedule regarding his personal/social life, and I get weekly phone calls on how he's doing. A snippet from our conversation today:
Me: "So, things going well with the schedule and such?"
SVA: "Yeah... I get Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights off, so it's cool for going out. Just during the day, everyone else is at work, and I don't really have anyone to hang out with. You know what I need?"
Me: "No, what?"
SVA: "I need a good-looking girl that has nothing to do all day that I can hang out with. Yeah, that's what I need, a girl with nothing to do all day."

That's my little brother, a great supporter for independent women.

The 5-second rule
The 5-second rule: if one is to drop a piece of food on the floor, that individual has T minus 5 seconds to pick it up and eat it. After that, it is inedible.

I don't actually practice this theory, because, ewww.... but it comes to mind every so often. Today, while I was eating my edamame, I happened to drop a bean on the floor. As I went to pick it up, I kept hearing in my head, "5-second rule! 5-second rule!" I picked up the bean in like 3.5 seconds. It had a hair stuck to it. 5-second rule still apply? I think not.
