I don’t know if I’ll ever make it to France, but at least I can have a bit of France on my bed! hehe. I’ve had this cute French-themed duvet for years and just love it! I also have the French text pillow cases to remind me of my failed attempts at learning the French language! haha The cute cat was a gift from my friend! :) I got the French sheets and duvet from GarnetHill.com and the yellow dottie sheets from PBTeen.com. If you click the pic, you can see a closer view of the French pattern! :)

Spring Tree with Bird via iPad

I just drew this spring picture on my iPad! I’m really enjoying all the apps! :) I was inspired by a friend’s photo on facebook that showed the beginnings of Spring with a pic of a tree in bloom. The tree didn’t really look like this, but it was still my inspiration.

Review: Buzz—The Science and Lore of Alcohol and Caffeine

December 21, 2010 at 3:26 am | Posted in Abstinence, Addiction, Alcohol, Alcoholics, Anxiety, Books, Booze, Brain, Caffeine, Coffee, Coke, Medicine, Mental Health, Psychoactive Substances, Reading, Relaxation, Stephen Braun | Leave a comment

() I might owe my fast reading of this book to my Starbucks coffee run, but it could also be attributed to the good and interesting writing in this book. “Buzz: The Science and Lore of Alcohol and Caffeine” by Stephen Braun is a captivating discourse on two of the most beloved substances on the planet. At one moment you are a molecule-sized scuba diver following the path of the ethanol molecule throughout the body and the next you are sizing up the athletic advantages of caffeine. The first half of the book is dedicated mainly to alcohol and its effects on the body and brain. The second half discusses caffeine. While the book may be a bit outdated (published in 1996), it still has relavent information for lay readers interested in how caffeine and alcohol work in the human body. The book really left me wanting to know more of the unanswered questions about how these substances work on a microscopic/molecular level. I felt that the first half covering alcohol was more complete, and ultimately more interesting, than the caffeine part, which is why I give this book 4 stars instead of 5. A good read nonetheless and you will come away probably knowing more than you do now about alcohol and caffeine.

I have to confess that I have a long streak of love for pop music running down my spine. I hope you enjoy this retro-inspired Christinia Aguilera video. I know, I know…I should shun all this pop garbage, but alas, I cave. And, okay, I totally dig this video! Sue me!

Darn! I can’t embed it, so try the link instead I guess.

Whew! It has been awhile since I have written a tip/trick. The last few months have been crazy, but not really in a good way. Oh well. The tip I’m writing about today has to do with this special time of year for people. This may be rather specific to people who are in the US and/or to people who celebrate certain holidays. Anyway, in the US most people have some holiday that they celebrate or they go on vacation or just have some time off. The major holidays are Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Kwanza, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Again, I know there are more holidays that I’m sure I’m missing, but these are the big ones. So, here is my tip: Continue Reading Tips And Tricks For Surviving A Mental Illness #11…

Okay, I’ve been reading The Slog a lot lately. If you don’t know The Slog is the public blog for The Stranger. The Stranger is an alternative-type newspaper in Seattle. Now The Stranger has offshoots like The Portland Mercury. I don’t know who owns what or whatever, so you can google that if you are interested. I started reading The Stranger in 1992 I guess, when I moved up to Seattle. I’m pretty sure Continue Reading Slogified…
