Debunkation and other smelly stuff

I'm instituting a moratorium on dining at Chevy's Fresh Mex.

We went with friends to Chevy's last night, and again (just like last time, and the time before that, etc) our clothing, hair, skin... all smell like Chevy's. Em put on her coat this morning, and it almost made us feel sick. I'm not sure if it's poor air circulation or if they inject salsa into the air ducts, but I hate smelling like a mexican restaurant.

It's Groundhog Day. The day that the Groundhog checks his list, finds out who's lost teeth and comes down the chimney to leave eggs under your pillow.

Or something like that.

I would rail about how stupid the whole concept of Groundhog Day is, but I'm pretty sure the people of Punxsutawney, PA have enough disappointment and negativity in their lives just from having to live there. So I will refrain from stating how ridiculous it is to think a large rodent in Pennsylvania has some sort of meteorological prowess.

Whoops. See, I need to learn when to shut up.

Human blood is blue until it hits oxygen.

How many times have you heard that? I can even hear the smarmy, cutting tone to the voice of the know-it-all who's saying it. It's not true.

Human blood is always red. It's darker red when it's going INTO the lungs than it is coming OUT, because highly oxygenated blood is brighter red. But when someone tries to tell you that we are like Vulcans and have blue, green or chartreuse blood, they are full of shit.

And that shit is, oddly enough, blue.

I got nothing else today. If I think of something, you'll be the first to know.

All the Chevy's here are closed down. Too many complaints about the morning after smell.

Thanks, BDD. Right after I read that YOU switched to "New" Blogger, I figured I'd give it a try. I had long since given up the effort and I was even considering finding another blog host.

But, sure enough, I was able to switch! Yay.

Oh, thanks for the tip about the blood.

I thought our blood was white, like we are, and the Chinese have yellow blood and the blacks have blood brothers.

Eskimos got ice in their blood.

Members of the House of Lords got blue blood.

Indians are the only ones who got red blood.

All this is true. I said so.

mmmm mexican food...

RE: blood - yep it's red, only bright red if it is arterial, dark red if it's venous. So you are (oh this hurts to say to a man) right.

I've been arguing with the whole "Bill's Garage" clan and they won't believe blood is red.

Why would I know? I'm just the guy that GOT MY FREAKING DEGREE IN HUMAN BIOLOGY BEFORE CONTINUING MY GODDAM EDUCATION AN EXTRA 5 YEARS TO BECOME A DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC!!

Dave, uhh.. you might want to get your blue stool checked.
