1. An eargnat is like an earworm, only instead of a song, a word, phrase, or often a name gets stuck in one’s head. I have them all the time. They are not about the words, but about the sounds made by the words. Today’s eargnat: Zephyr Teachout. What a euphonious name. Zeh fir tee chout. With my luck, “teachout” is pronounced “tay KOO” or something equally ridiculous. Zeh fir tay koo. Still works.
  2. Subscribing to the feed of this LJ gets me through the toughest of days. And also non-tough days.
  3. The Spousal Unit and I now have separate computers, all hooked up to the Intarweb and everything! It’s neato-keen.
  4. The Life of Mammals dvd set was my birthday present to the SU. We just started watching it. Best birthday present ever.
  5. The Marvelettes say: “Don’t mess with Bill!”
  6. I chew ice. Mmmm…refreshing!

    Okay, I’m sure you know this already, but chewing ice is a sign of anemia. Just in case you need a potential health condition to be paranoid about. I know, I know, I’m here for you. Doesn’t everyone need a Jewish Mother?

    Yep, I know. I’ve never been diagnosed with anemia, but I took a supplement just in case. I’m still chewin’.

    I think my husband would be eternally grateful if I could take a pill and stop chewing ice. 🙂
