Not sure the mechanism, but if there's a bad storm at night, I can't have any carbs that are normally on the next day.  Stress maybe?  It's weird.

Like one piece of toast was too much today.

Take care of yourself, Joseph.

My wife rescued a baby bird a couple of days ago. He had, apparently, fallen out of a nest his parents insisted upon building in the high end of one of our 2nd story rain gutters.

I didn’t think she would be able to save the little guy, as we’ve never had any success with this sort of thing in the past. But, our little guest is doing just fine! He’s fledgling size and has quite an appetite, as well as quite a voice. My wife is feeding him, moistened dry cat food, tiny pieces of fruit, hard-boiled egg yoke, and moistened bird suet on roughly an hourly basis. 

We think our little guest is a house wren, and we’re hoping we can release him to the backyard in a few more days.

Cool!

Interesting idea of pre-planning for procrastination. It's like you trick yourself into doing stuff (i.e. tidying is a valuable job in it's own right) by thinking of it as actually putting off the real work.

I would also agree that doing multiple things at once helps - if I know I can drop whatever i'm doing when I get bored and start doing something else then the starting feels less painful.

Good luck with your move!

Exactly!

And thanks!

I hope things improve.

If you can scrape $10 together, go get a 5 pound bucket of diatomaceous earth at the hardware store and spread it around the room.  It kills anything with an exoskeleton stone dead.

I'll see what I can do. Thanks! If I can seal the walls and baseboards I should be ok. I don't intend to be here after my lease is up end of August if possible.

After helping a friend of mine out with his leather business he went and bought me a bigass bag of this diatomaceous earth! It's a tan-white powder almost the consistency of baby powder or talc. It's now in a ring around my bed and along the baseboards. Fortunately my cell has a linoleum floor so I won't have to do the whole floor as long as my barrier holds. I also salted the earth  (:p) on my box spring.

Thanks for the tip! I still have a shit ton of the stuff and will be sharing some out to my neighbors. The more dead bugs the better!

I'm filling out a job application, and one of the questions is "Tell us what makes you unique. Try to be creative and say something that will catch our eye!"

Am I wrong in interpreting this as "Make up some outlandish shit about yourself"?  I mean, how could something factually accurate be "creative"?

I'm thinking of saying something like "I was born in a dirigible, and can communicate telepathically with creamed corn."

Go with "garmonbozia" instead.
