Evidently poop transplants are an actual thing.
Yeah that weirded me out when I heard it too, but I guess it's like, your mother's poop carries some important antibodies in it and some people didn't get those antibodies naturally for some reason and it becomes a problem when that person gets certain infections.

Tig Notaro talks about having to get a fecal transplant when she had c diff.

When one of the greatest military commanders in history was addressing his troops to inspire them before marching them over the Pyrenees and the Alps into northern Italy at the start of the Second Punic War, as he shouted that he would chew the flesh off his enemies bodies and gnaw on their bones for dessert, was the great military commander speaking from...

Has anyone else ever responded to an emailed question about something that could have been Googled in 5 second, with "If only you had some kind of electronic device in front of you that you could use to search for this information?"!

All day long, buddy. All frikkin day long.

"Do you have this item?"

"Okay sure. I can help you with that. See, what I'm going to do is take the name of the item you want. Following me so far? Good. Then I take that name and I go to "Amazon.com". Still with me? Awesome! Then I push "search" in the upper right. Okay, you try it. See how the thing you want shows up? No, it's not magic. I am not a wizard, you inbred simpleton."

They're having a book sale at the public library this week.

There are balloons and signs pointing.  There's a  taped sign on the front door pointing.  And this year they even put out giant neon green feet that lead the way.  Each foot says "book sale this way."

My friend who works there said that today at least half a dozen people come in to ask where the book sale was.  It was only a 4 hour work day.

So, I'm not surprised at all that Lembach gets those emails.

Phone calls or chats. But mostly when I have to help fill in on the phones.

I'm new to the whole daily medication scene. I take a blood pressure pill, zoloft, and a daily vitamin. But once in a while I forget and, rather than overdose, I just skip.
So to combat this, I started turning over the bottles when I took them. That only worked if I turned them right side up when I went to bed. Which I'd forget.

So I went to you-know-where and searched for "medication reminder". I bought this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012X7JYO/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

A bit large (penny in shot for scale):



I could actually use this as an underwear reminder!

I've seen those giant ones in the stores, wondered what giant pills people used them for...
I still have the one I used to use for my horse, and that was a normal sized one, it still has 2 days of his antihistamines in it.  Been years and I still can't throw them out.

It's a reference to Breaking Bad.  Marie Schrader is the wife of DEA Agent Hank Schrader, and she has a great affinity for the color purple.  Hank and Marie's house is filled with purple stuff.
