Schrödinger's Cat and the Life of Unopened Possibilities.

Because I believe in higher education and the idea that there is an infinite amount to learn in the world so wouldn't you want to learn as much as you possibly can? I try to surround myself with people I can learn from. Since I haven't found too many super smart people in real life that don't get creeped out by me following them around gawking, in the hopes some of their intelligence will rub off on me -- [tip: you don't have to physically rub someone; it's more a figurative concept than a literal one. Trust me.] -- I am absolutely stoked to have stumbled upon The Big Bang Theory. I realize the television series has been on since 2007, but that is not the point. The point is, it's a show filled with just the geeky lovable types I yearn to hang out with in real life.

A couple nights ago (in a re-run that probably aired years ago), Sheldon mentioned Schrödinger's cat. Schrödinger was a scientist who sealed a cat in a metal box with a vial of poison that woul…

Everyone needs a Shannon. And some Sharpies. And maybe even a cat.

I have a sister.

Her name is Shannon.
She's some sort of counselor/psychologist/social worker type person. I can never remember what her technical title really is because:
               (1) I'm totally distracted by the fact she can put a bunch of capital letters after she signs her name - that is so freaking cool! and,
               (2) I also tend to get totally distracted that someone who once brought the farm goats inside our house to give them spa treatments is allowed to be responsible for the mental health of human beings. They got loose and ran wild throughout the house half-shaved (she was giving them a new look) and scared out of their wits. Do you know that goats drop a lot of turds when they are scared out of their wits? Also, they are incredibly speedy galloping up and down staircases.

I'm always like what advice do you actually give? "I don't know... I just feel stuck. Like, I'm just sitting here waiting for something and... I dunno... watching …

"Maybe we can recycle kittens after they're dead."

In honor of the current and upcoming political nonsense... (something about Sarah Palin's new hair style?)
and also because I work in government  and this is (sadly) pretty dang accurate....
and also because I don't have anything to post about  but this made me laugh out loud. Like, really loud...
I've decided to share this video with you  (which was shared with me earlier today by a pretty awesome lady  who happens to live in a house the size of a Subaru,  but that's beside the point)....
Green Bay City Council discusses kittens.


I'm cool. The hell with kittens. 


Also:
This blog is dedicated to my  seemingly one (and only) reader:
Johi at Confessions of a Corn Fed Girl

Because she actually missed my blog posts.

And then posted something on my facebook.

Which made me think:
why does she have all this time to harass me on facebook?
Shouldn't she be practicing her guitar for her upcoming video blog?
