  1. I only like the green gummy bears.*
  2. Instigating a fight with a hefty man who is a foot taller than me would really just be a waste of time.
  3. I have plenty of time, no need to fret.

Venus and Mars

I got a big red exercise ball last week.  I wanted to use it as a computer chair (which I am and it rules, except for how my skin sticks to it because it’s hot as BALLS here.  Ahem.), and also to start doing some strengthening exercises (crunches, push ups, squats, etc.) and I thought it might jumpstart me a bit.

Y’all, I almost have a PhD, but I am laughably dumb, sometimes…
