First pot of coffee consumed.

At this point too, it's very hard for me to shut my brain up. Last night I stopped studying at midnight but couldn't get to sleep until almost 4 am. I woke up at almost noon. It's 1 am in Boston now. There's no other choice at this point. That's part of the reason I'm a night owl. I do most of my thinking too late in the night, and then I want to keep thinking until I'm exhausted.

On the bright side, school is one stop away on the T. Ten minute walk to the train, two minutes on the train, one minute walk to school. So when I pass that exam in, I have the option of falling asleep within 15 minutes.

Let's put it this way. When the alarm goes off, it wakes me up just enough that I think I'm awake enough to get up, but to take 5 more minutes for snooze. That half awake hand is very indiscriminate though.

Even just 20 mins. light sleep/rest helps me defrag after cram / before heading to exam.  Upon rising I just skim material for revision - just to retrace the structure of the data chunks already crammed into memory wetware.  Without sleep, I would skip revision and just get as far as I can.

When I'm out, I'm out. I am a very heavy sleeper. It's unfortunate, because I am going to be dragging some serious ass, but I'd rather be dragging ass and taking the final rather than sleeping through it.

This is going to blow. A lot.

My genetics final is in 9.5 hours.

Knowing how easily I wake up in the morning, I think I might have to just power through on a caffeine binge, get a few hours in at work and crash the fuck out.

Just saw this request, I'll see what I can do. Remind me if I don't deliver.

No rush, I'm bogged down myself.

They just changed the wake to tomorrow. There is no way I can get down there.

That's awful :(

I just called my Uncle, there's nothing they can do. It was out of most of their control. That is the time they could get, and since she's being interred next to my grandfather in Bethpage, they cannot have the burial on the weekend.


Sorry to hear it, Suu and Cainad.

Wake is Thursday and Funeral is Friday. Full Catholic Service. *deep breath*

Rest easy, Gramma. Grampa Sal will be glad to see you after almost 40 years.

My sympathies. Will you be doing a rosary? Is that a thing outside of Latino Catholicism?

I've only experienced that with my Irish grandmother's funeral. Gravesite. Dad had to nudge me for the decade I was supposed to take. I snapped out of my grief, did the decade, went back to grieving. There was no order to it. Dad just saw fit that it was my turn. Catholic funerals in Boston are a bit different. At least as far as my mother's family is an indicator. No rosaries here. Gravesite is a little more personal to the deceased. Rural Ireland is more formulaic. I suspect it relies on level of religiosity.

Mozzarella sticks are all glory and awesome. Man, I'd try that. I'd take some knitting and eat me some cheesy sticks with a fork so as not to get greasy fingers on my yarn and be rich and well knit and stuffed to bursting with cheese.

Mmmmm. Cheese.

Also, I too have seen that Trivial Pursuit Ketchup thing and it is a lie.

I wouldn't be so fast on the draw until you've tried TGIF mozzarella sticks.

Also, I really want to know what her poop was like the next day.

I think stubborn is probably one word that came to her mind.

I'd do the wings, personally.

I love buffalo wings.

I'm also poor and usually can't buy buffalo wings.

$10 unlimited buffalo wings? Oh yeah. I may have the weirdest dump the next day, but totally worth it. Slaughter the whole damn coop.

They should have put me up to it. I love mozzarella sticks.

Also, she should have ordered beer or something. It would have numbed her to it, she would have gotten more money and would have been done way sooner.

Me to Daniel: "I'm glad that we're both not John Tesh"

I'm a weird food eater.  Love me some tripe.  Love me fish heads.  Love me livers, hearts, and chicken feet.

The reason I've given haggi a pass is that it's sold as "oatmeal and parts in stomach" which I hear as "coppery blandness with the texture of cat food" which simply doesnt appeal.

Are there spices or herbs of any kind used?

What I know is that it tastes spicy and goes well with Scotch. It's one of the rare combinations where whisk(e)y doesn't kill the spicy.

I've described it in the past as sheep without the meat.

I'll probably eventually suck it up and try it. At the end of the day, it is edible, it only sounds disgusting. And truth be told I used to find black pudding disgusting on principle and it's now one of my favorite foods.

>We've been known to turn perfectly good spam threads into meaningful discussions.

I don't even think it's a matter of that. Over the years lurking here, I've seen threads about a given topic morph into 10 other things. Can't cite anything specific at all, but I can recall many a times seeing a discussion of [X super serious politico-philosophic topic] turn into a discussion about [broken dildos, cat penises, the price of coal in china, etc].

Is fun...

That part happens on every forum I've been a part of.  What is unique here IMO is the part Roger mentioned, the PD habit of redeeming a terrible thread simply via correct application of wit.

Personally I love that aspect, given my unfortunate tendency to knee-jerk and tantrum over every thread I create that does not get the response I was hoping for.

Wit is the best way of getting out of an unpleasant social situation.

It's not always possible, but when it is, it gives most people a way out of the situation with a shred of dignity intact.

I think this is a pretty good tangent for this one.
