a few facts that are not related in any way (except the two that discuss my driving skills or lack there of)

* Last night Christopher told me about a study he read on why people twitch when they're falling asleep. I told him about a baby at school who had such a terrible blowout that the only way to free him from his filthy clothes was to cut them off his body.

He wasn't quite sure what to do with that story.

* Earlier in the week I asked Christopher if anything major had happened in the world because I have been too busy to read the news, but not too busy to check out the latest sales on the Old Navy website. I'm wondering if I should rearrange my priorities because apparently cute clothes > knowing about what new threat our country is facing.

* I've been experiencing an unusual tingling in my right thumb. I refuse to look up possible causes on WebMD because then I'll convince myself I have cancer or am dying and who has time for all that three days before Easter? I've self-diagnosed myself as having Texters Thumb.

* A digger with a full load of rocks almost hit me this morning. I was in the car and only escaped certain death (or at least dealing with the insurance company) through a show of impressive driving skilz. And by that I mean I didn't stall as I sped out of his way.

* I almost drove into Dunkin' Donuts as I picked up my medium French vanilla ice coffee today. Not the I went into the drive-through lane kind of into Dunkin' Donuts. I almost drove INTO the building.

I'd rather not discuss it anymore.

Why do people twitch as they're falling asleep? I was studying in the library this afternoon and before I knew it I managed to fall asleep and jerk so much it woke me up!

Glad you survived the rocks and DD!

ummm I hit Starbucks when I was in high school. going through the drive thru line.dropped my wallet and accidentally pushed the gas instead of the brake-- I'd had my license a whopping one month. my family still teases me about it--- and I still get antsy every time I drive through a Starbucks :)

The only news I get is from my facebook newsfeed...otherwise I have no idea what is happening. It is sad!

Love this! I'm the same with Webmd! My husband warns me to stay away from that site way too often! Lol.

Sometimes when I'm driving I forget what pedal my foot is on and have to give it a little 'tap' to see if we're on the moving one or the breaking one. For this very reason it is totally conceivable that I will run day run into a DD too. I'm going to go ahead and assume that you will not judge :)
