[music |Chatting about Little Random]

I saw this on the news the other night:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7851031.stm

Apparently a virus can help you gain weight. Lots and lots of weight.

I'm so behind. I'll go look pretty soon. Little Random started pre-school today, so I'm a mess. lol. But in a good way. :) Completely broke. And sick. But still alive, and generally pretty happy except for being sick and poor, and feeling old. haha

Online, he's just Little Random. :) He had a good first day, just picked him up and went out for a late lunch. He told me he "rocked the guitar" so that was pretty cool. ;)

Quite true. ;) I just thought it was interesting that a lot of weight gain in obese people can be traced to that specific virus.

This person tried to take my screenname, pretended to be me and do things I wouldn't dare do--so I just reported the imposter to YouTube's abuse line

Glad to hear from you! Hmm, now if they can find something to block that virus . . .

I just bought a house. I'll be moving next month. I'm pretending to be an adult . . . it's a little scary!

A Fat Virus Huh? What did Denis Leary say about that?

I believe this is a direct quote:

"There's a doctor now, I'd like to see what size he is, a doctor in L.A. came up with a theory that being fat is actually a virus. Ah, I guess I'm the asshole here, right? Cause every other virus we know about is a flesh-eating virus: the common cold, AIDS, cancer. But he's the found the one that makes ya bigger. Okay, yep yep yep yep yep. That's all the fat person in each family needs. Now we're at Thanksgiving with the fat person going, "Well I'm not actually overeating. AHHMUMFMUMF, I'm trying to keep the virus at bay, AHHMUMFMUMF."

I heard about that fat virus. There's no cure, just treatment: diet and exercise. WHAAA???

Awe, koala-ala!!! Once my friend said she was going to drink some Coca-Cola but I misheard her and said, "WTF is koala cola?! A furry can with it's beak as the pop top?" Ah, the good-ol' days...

Classes have stared again, so its a good distraction, that is they're a fun and quite challenging. Still i'm broke, and can't afford much more than food, and i'm damn lonely these days. However I have good friends here and there, and family as well so I could be doing a hell of a lot worse. I hope you are doing well, and I hope little random plays pre-school

Re: Just checking in...

Yikes! I hope you feel better soon. I've had some doozy headaches in my time, but three weeks is way over my "personal best."

I'm doing pretty well, just busy. I'm studying to take a content test to become a math teacher (middle school is my first choice). I keep psyching myself out, instead of just being confident. I just have to suck it up and keep studying and just do the dang thing, you know?

I will send you nice happy healing thoughts. :))))
