My husband finally sat down and read some of my journal.  He laughed at the first one he read, but when he started reading about himself, which I warned him about, he didn't laugh anymore.  In fact he's not saying much of anything to me right now.  Not good........  He's been on his computer since I got back from getting breakfast.  I may be impeached by this evening.  My journal may succumb to some unknown virus or he may go on a dust bunny hunting spree.  Say your prayers for me, I think I'm going to need them.

So anyhow, in the mean time, my last meal was an awesome breakfast burrito from Albertaco's, the best Mexican food this side of the border.  Those $2.50 burritos are big enough to satisfy you for the rest of the day.  Unfortunately (yep, you all knew this was coming!) they evolve into some really potent gas!  This is not a good thing considering that I had nachos with a glob of jalepenos for dinner last night.  I'm so full of gas I'm surprised I'm not floating!  All I can say is that its a good thing this is a no-smoking house because the air is highly flamable right now.  I wonder if we need to hang one of those 'hazardous materials' signs out on the front of the house like those businesses do when they have chemicals and other dangerous things on the premises.  Are farts listed on the periodic table?  I couldn't find it.  I looked up Pu which would have been logical, but that was the symbol for plutonium. 

  • Over one third of the energy produced in most nuclear power plants comes from plutonium. It is created there as a by-product. (farts are also created as a by-product)
  • Plutonium has occurred naturally, but except for trace quantities it is not now found in the earth's crust.  (farts are a natural occurance)
  • There are several tonnes of plutonium in our biosphere, a legacy of atmospheric weapons testing in the 1950s and 1960s.  (fart vapors fill the air of every country on every continent since the beginning of time)
  • Plutonium is radiologically hazardous, particularly if inhaled, so must be handled with appropriate precautions.  (some farts are so potent that they can cause the watering of eyes and difficulty in breathing)

Notice the similarities of plutonium and farts, coincidence or is there a real connection between the two?   Perhaps that is why plutonium is listed as Pu on the chart.  Makes sence to me.

Oh NO!!  Can't believe your DH read your journal.  Watch out!  We have an Albertaco's nearby but I've never eaten there, I didn't realize they were a chain.

    Check it out.  I'm still amazed.

Molecular formula of methane is CH4 (the four being subscripted, of course) there ya go. Oh, and I say it's a good thing he is reading. Maybe he will "get" you better now. See things from your side. One can only hope. -B

lmao you crack me up Dorn. Hope you are not grounded for too long. Take care and have a good weekend.

Hi Dorn..your entry cracked me up.  Try Beano for the gas. It really prevents farts but you would miss out on the fun of stinking up the room. Your choice.

Awwww!  I don't think the stuff about him is so bad.  The things I read about other people and their lives just make me not feel like I'm so different from everyone else.  Somehow we get this idea that we're weird and other people are all so perfect and normal...then you start reading J's and realize we've all got things in common and there is no perfect little Barbie and Ken type family.
