It is in my world.

Yeah - I did my dissertation 2010/2011 - they were very clear that you could not use it as a source - and really. Its not that hard to find websites or a book with the info you need - only incredibly lazy people use Wikipedia for a paper.


I'm using wikipedia for HPV research right now.



I use to find other sources rather than use it alone. I think it has a place in research but shouldn't be completely relied on.

Woman at the front desk of the orthodontist:

You were ignorant and insulting using the term "silly daddies" in front of said daddy's child. The reason he didn't get a print out was because either you or a lazy coworker didn't feel the need to print out the appointment sheet, not because "people don't want to wait for the printer to turn on". He actually commented on it when he got home that you couldn't print it out. I've been there before when the printer "acted up" so I know most of you don't have a good grasp of how it works. If I hadn't been so shocked you said it (with the orthodontist standing right there) I'd have said something but I was hoping the child was tuned out of reality and didn't notice.

------------

Is it just me or does it bother anybody else that no one seems to wear nametags in doctor/dentist/ortho offices anymore?

We really need to get on that!

I just finished reading the Hunger Games trilogy, and trauma is a good word to describe it. I really hate when a good idea is ruined by mediocre writing. I think this is one of the rare situations were the movies could be better than the books.
I thought the writing was adequate enough that it didn't ruin it. It's just that last book really was stressful to read and took a toll. I will say that the actors playing Gale and Peeta look just as I would have pictured them.

This HPV essay is taking way to long to do, I'm just not in the mood.

Also I think I've put myself off getting my eyes lasered. I researched the complications. and also someone would be messing with my EYES. And I could save the money for something else.

I need to play with contact lenses first.

Personally I think name tags look unprofessional and 'Welcome to Chili's how may I serve you?', when a Doctors office is trying to project a setting worthy of what they're going to charge you.

We used to go to dental office seminars where they would tell us to light scented candles, always have fresh flowers out, have dim lighting, and water fountains, because people will be apt to spend more money.

It should not be -3F at noon.

I think we're being punished for how mild the winter has been thus far.

Why are some people sooooo much prettier than others?

Couldn't it have been spread around a little more evenly?

So put together, great hair, gorgeous skin and a glowing smile.

I can't even figure out the hair I've had for almost 37 years and look a mess more often than not.

Maybe some have a gift for working with what they have better than others.

I agree that Mockingjay was stressful. I've read Katniss's behavior described as PTSD and I think that's pretty accurate. While I didn't have any problems with the events of the book, it bugged the hell out of me that we were told about instead of shown a lot of the action, like Peeta's rescue, and pretty much the whole climax of the trilogy. Limitations of the first person POV, I guess.

And maybe my problem with the writing wasn't that it was mediocre but that the books were YA fiction? So many times throughout all three books I kept thinking, "Okay, that part needs to be taken further, given more complexity, etc." I would love to read a non-YA version of The Hunger Games.

All that, along with the fact I had so many issues with the way Katniss was written, made for a really frustrating read.

Laser surgery is one of the best things I've ever done, BUT, when I did it, I had been having issues wearing contact lenses. I had major irritation under my eyelids that made contact lenses feel like shards of glass. So I had a reason to tip me toward giving surgery a try. You may need to know for sure that you can't just live with contacts in order to justify taking that risk.

Legends, what issues did you have with how she was written?

I do think the movie should be rated R. I get that because it's a YA series they want to keep it PG-13, but this is one very violent, gory series.

A woman thanked Newt Gingrich for "putting Juan Williams in his place" during the debate in South Carolina . And the audience cheered. South Carolina, you are sickening.

I felt that Katniss, as strong as she was, was almost completely powerless. You know how Peeta would say that she has no idea of the effect she has on people? He was right, and it drove me nuts. That made sense in the first book, but I had expected that to change, for Katniss to grow in that respect. I went into Catching Fire expecting to see Katniss have some role in the rebellions in the districts, not one of leadership, obviously, but I expected her to take an active part, even a tiny one. Instead she was completely clueless about everything that was going on.

There were moments in Mockingjay that had me thinking that was changing, but everytime I got excited, she was smacked back down, once again the completely reluctant hero, the rebels' pawn. I kept waiting for her to develop a sense of her own power, to enjoy it just a tiny bit, and it never happened. And then that awesome scene with Coin near the end happens, and...oh, we get to be inside Katniss traumatized mind again instead of seeing the aftermath.

And I can't help thinking that that's not how it all would have happened if Katniss had been a man.

I am leaning towards contacts now. Also my dad doesn't like the idea of me having what is unnecessary surgery. If I can't manage contacts I may think about the laser again.

What caused the irritation? The lenses?

I think the last sentence nails it. I love makeup and often buy it. But I never use it. Maybe 5 times a year I will. And then I have no idea what I am doing. I am just bad at hair styling/makeup applying stuff. I have no clue. I also have very deepest eyes so I even if I had the skills I am not sure why I should bother. I have no skills in this area-I think I have a gene missing.

Oh the joys of marshmallow-making clean-up:

At Target the other day, I was won over by the adorable little 7.5 oz cans of Coke... I couldn't resist myself. I had to buy them. I mean, I was planning on buying some pop anyhow, but I wasn't planning on buying that particular kind. Anyhow... I told myself "that's all the caffeine I need anyway! PLUS, I don't really even LIKE pop that much! I'm just buying this because I need caffeine some days, and I don't like coffee! So this should be just the right amount."

False. It is NOT the right amount. I'm sitting at work fighting to keep my eyes open right now!

Also, I DO like pop that much. I try to pretend like I don't, but I do...
