  1. Today, on the Maury Povich show:

    Guy: My girl's pregnant, but she says I'm not the father. I've never been with anyone else.

    Scientist: Correlation isn't causation.

    Guy: That's what she said.

  2. It's fall, my favorite time of year - and I live in NorCal where the visual evidence of fall (mainly the tree leaves' color change) lasts maybe 2 weeks. I was halfway to work today before I noticed that the visual change was finally happening around here - a 30 min drive past quite a few different types of trees. Normally I look at the scenery, see what's being harvested, what's in bloom, where an idiot threw a lit cigarette into the median & caused a fire, etc., but today I was preoccupied with work before I even got there.

    Fall is short around here. No more work-think on the drive while it's light out & there's stuff to see.

  3. When you bring home food (leftovers, take out, groceries), LICK IT ALL before putting it away.

    Leave a bit of leftover food (something with a bit of meat or milk, low in acid, moist) in an open container in a prominent place. Tell your roommate it's part of an important class assignment and s/he ABSOLUTELY CANNOT throw it away. (Live with the smell.) When it gets so bad that it "mysteriously" disappears, hold a wake.

    Keep a "Progress" calendar that you check off each day you didn't seriously injure, maim, or kill someone. Be sure to leave some days unmarked.

    Remove their shoelaces. If possible, while they're still wearing the shoes.

  4. After trying the nice, try-to-keep-cabinets-intact way, we got out the mallets and started real demo on the wall & ceiling cabinets.

    End result: The drywall won't require major repairs, no fires, no major injuries (nails to the shoulder don't count, right?), only one minor case of electrocution (turns out the vent hood wasn't on the same circuit), and a few splinters and split skin instances.

    My only real thought when it was done?

    It was a lot better than I expected ... Now what's going to go wrong on the rest of the remodel - because I live by Murphy's Law. :P
