    I did consider correcting her but thought that my reputation could hardly be damaged by the idea that I know a selection of sexy french phrases

    Take me now.

    So I have a fear of anything small, flying, and that buzzes

    Even if it's just like a house fly flying past my ear. I hear the buzz, adrenaline kicks in and I leap away.

    I stepped in a hornet's nest when I was 3. A wee child playing in the yard one early fall day. Out with my mom. Step into some leaves by a fence. Bam. Hornet's nest. So yeah, never really something I got over.

    So I'm in the shower this morning, right on schedule to make my bus and get to work on time. When suddenly, I hear the buzz. We found a couple wasps in our apartment a couple days ago because they like to hang out by our balcony and sometimes they get in. So I hear the buzz, and I react. I throw the shower curtain to the side without even shutting the water off, reach for my towel, get the door between the toilet/shower and the sinks open just far enough to fall out of the shower face first as my back foot catches the side of the tub.

    And that's how a house fly made me late for work this morning.

    I didn't. Makes sense though. Now I can sprinkle it anywhere, thus lending a certain je ne said quoi to my manner of speech/postings.

    edit: Oh no, I've shown of my ignorance by imitating a typo and then made an awkward edit describing it.

    And then made a typo in the edit highlighting the awkwardness of that typo

    I once had a college US History course where the instructor spent the entire class explaining in great detail how to make a stil for moonshine. He made sure we knew the correct temperature so you don't go blind.

    Somewhere I have that notebook with the schematics I painstakingly copied off the chalkboard.

    I remember first moving to the Sacramento area and near enough to one of the colleges to pick up the occasional lecture on tv.

    One could be described as "Crystal Meth: it's history and creation". Professor actually explained how Stockton gangs would purchase and process large cases of ephedra and how they would break it down/convert it. He explained how this was done chemically though and not in any practice terms ("remove these two molicules and there's your base. Add this string and now you got crystal.")

    Also, how to make all kinds of explosives and other nasty shit, like biological agents and things like ricin.

    Hi NSA! How's it going? I hope you're having a nice weekend. Don't worry about me, I'm not into any of that shit. Please don't ban me from ever visiting North America, there's lots of cool people there I'd like to meet.

    IT SUCKS

    I've gone back over my posts and actions for the past few months, and I think my anti-anxiety medication is making my mood erratic at best. I'm no longer depressed or anxious, but I'm increasingly hostile and angry in spurts. I've been combative and contradictory for little to no reason and I'm not even noticing it. I think my meds are turning me into an internet troll.

    Irish Carbombs.

    :|

    got a problem, friend

    Just what Fyndir said, that's a pretty shitty name for a drink, no problem with you personally
    I always wondered if the drink had a different name in other countries, or if they just didn't have it at all
    It's a pretty tasty drink.
    my local guide in Dublin said they were called "depth charges", but also that the phrase could refer to any kind of dropped shot. i assume this one just tended to be the most popular with tourists, so it needed no further elaboration.

    edit to add that we asked if they had the drink where you drop a shot of Jameson's and Bailey's into a Guinness. and i also have a story of Irish awkwardness, but it takes some knowledge of Native American history to fully explain, and i don't think i have time to type it before the thread ends.

    awkward bug stories: there was a mosquito flying around at work a couple weeks ago. i knew this, because she had already munched on me. my coworker, M, who is actually also a minor boss, was speaking to a customer a little further down the counter from my register. i happen to notice a mosquito on her wrist, and knowing the misery the little fucker has already inflicted on me (the mosquito, not my coworker), i slap it. M looks a bit confused, i immediately apologized/explained, but i imagine the customer was a bit perturbed.

    last week, it being a particularly rainy couple of days again, one landed on my chest. so any customer in the dining room happening to look my way was treated to the sight of me slapping my collarbone, then looking mildly disgusted.

    another edit: Tam gets it.
