Things that shortened my lifespan today

  • Though I set my alarm for 8:30, I instead awoke (for the first time) at 6:45 because I’d forgotten to shut the curtains on my east-facing window.
  • While walking to work I tripped on a curb and skinned my knee.
  • I singed myself on the steam emitted from an Erlenmeyer flask of boiling liquid.
  • The usual, day-to-day use of mutagenic chemicals (wear your gloves, kids!)
  • I was bitten and peed on numerous times by pubescent mice.
  • My boss “rewarded” me for doing a good job at work by whacking me heartily on the back several times.

In spite of these great setbacks, I managed to survive work and I may now, at my leisure, go to the library and then go see Despicable Me later. Awww yeah, Bargain Tuesdays.

Also, here is my current favorite thing: FEMINIST HULK. Best Twitter feed ever. A few of my favorites:

HULK SMASH DOMINANT GENDER PARADIGM! PUT DEBRIS IN COMPOST PILE TO FERTILIZE LITTLE HULK GARDEN OUT BACK.

And:

HULK SAY FUCK PATRIARCHY. HULK NOT HAVE PROBLEM WITH “FUCK.” ONLY BAD WORDS ARE ONES USED TO MAKE PEOPLE FEEL SMALL.
