Day two and my abs are still so sore that getting out of bed was challenging. Guess I now know what to work on, and how.
What did you do for your workout? - Larua Boats from Android
Glute bridges (2 sets of 25), balance ball crunches (2 sets of 25), planks (3 sets at 30 seconds each), and some other stuff that wasn't focusing on core, but I think it's mostly from the glute bridges and crunches. I'm really lazy about doing core work. - Holly's favorite Anna
Wow! Way to go! - Larua Boats from Android

Inspired by the "Remember, remember" posts, do any of you get earworms that are poems (or parts of poems) instead of songs? The Guy Fawkes one gets me on occasion throughout the year, as does Milne's "Disobedience," a/k/a "James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George Dupree..." Am I alone?
I regularly get the opening lines of Beowulf stuck on repeat, and sometimes the opening of Canturbury Tales. Also, Eletelephony pops up in irregular intervals for no apparent reason: - Kirsten
Thank you, Kirsten! I'm glad it's not just me. :D - Larua Boats
Usually the first one or two sentences of either a HS novel (It was the best of times and the worst of times) or the first paragraph of my anatomy/physiology book, especially the pancreas chapter. - Janet from FFHound!
I get bits of dialogue from novels. - Rebecca Hedreen
Shel Silverstein occasionally gets me. "Ickle Me, Pickle Me, Tickle Me too" and "Sarah Sylvia Cynthia Stout would not take the garbage out!" Not nearly as highbrow :) - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Jaclyn, I get "Sarah Cynthia...," too! - Larua Boats from Android
Yes. I was an English lit major, so there are many poem earworms. - Corinne L
In grade school, we had to memorize and recite poetry. Recitation every Friday, for however many Fridays it took for all 30 kids to have a go, then on to the next poem. There are two or three that cropped up every year and I still have fragments of them in my head. Chat, chat, chat / Chat noir, chat blanc, chat gris / Charmant chat couché / Chat, chat, chat. - bentley
This one I could recite complete all the way until sometime in my 30's. Now I only remember the first half: La Cigale et la Fourmi. - bentley
Opening soliloquy to Shakespeare's Richard III; "anyone lived in a pretty how town"; the Jabberwocky; bits of The Wasteland - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Number 2 here is another of mine: - Larua Boats from Android
I am taking immune suppressants to control my Crohn's so basically it's "herd immunity" or I die so fuck you anti-vaxxers #spoonie #stelera #crohns
Is it offering the results promised? - Janet from FFHound!
Yes I am pleased with Stelera for my Cohn's. My disease did not flare this fall or with the cold weather snap, all vulnerable times for my Cohn's to go hot! Stelera is a IM shot every 8 weeks I'm about 16 weeks into my regimen after 2 boosters at the outset. So far #winning - WarLord

You guys, I know it sounds like more of Glassmeyer's crazy woo-woo, but I've been trying acupuncture this month & it actually seems to work
Been doing it for... Gosh... 5 or 6 years now. Definitely weird, but helped me when nothing else was working. - lris from Android
When I tried it at my doctor's behest, I was certain it wouldn't work. It did. - Katy S from iPhone
After several years I have become strong proponent of acupuncture for both my Cohn's and IBM - particularly effective for nausea and stomach pains. - WarLord
The office cat at Gypsy's vet is 22 years old. O.o #goodadvertising
Impressive! - RepoRat
There are also office parakeets, parrot, lizard, and two more cats who "tend to stay in the back." This vet is half zoo. - lris from Android
Office pets are awesome. My doctors office has an office dog, but she's kind of aloof to me. Still makes me happy to see. - Heather

I think what we all really like about professional sport is how the rules produce fair competition and thus a spirit of honesty.

first thing i did this morning was earworm myself with "Wheels on the Bus" so i've got that going for me.
*shakes fist* - ellbeecee
One year, the Staff Day skit at MfPOW was about The Home for Retired Librarians. At one point, one of the Youth librarians (who really was retiring very soon), stumbles across the stage, clutching her head. "NOOOOO! Not the wheels on the Bus!!!" - bentley
i got a Wheels on the Bus tshirt from woot a while back - that was the culprit. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
Is it still going round and round in your head? - C to the A to the J..Hey!

"Without compelling evidence from the early period of her reign to demonstrate her personal characteristics it is unfair and unwise for historians to characterise Katherine in a negative light, for much of what we do know of her comes from hostile observers under desperate circumstances, in the last few months of her life." Conor Byrne
Katharine Howard: A New History - Jennifer Dittrich
Some of the writing is pretty circular, but as a central point, this seems a pretty good one. Most of the things that are meant to demonstrate how 'frivolous' or 'stupid' she's supposed to have been don't really seem that way when extricated from the other charges thrown at her. - Jennifer Dittrich

I have nothing against Kanye West. Help me with this—I’m not dissing him—this is about how people talk about him. With the last album he did, he got all the best beatmakers on the planet at the time to make beats for him. A lot of the time, he wasn’t even there. Yet no one would question his authorship for a second. If whatever I’m saying to you... -
Björk's statements here are true, both regarding her own work (how the press dismisses her contributions to her own work) and Kanye's. a friend of mine manages a really nice studio in Cali (not naming it soas to protect his job) which Kanye booked solid late last year. teams of beatmakers and editors and instrumentalists were working throughout the complex while Kanye mostly sat on random couches piddling around on his phone. work-for-hire is how he gets his music. - Big Joe Silence

It doesn't really make sense for a centaur to have two rib cages.
And two stomachs but (apparently) only one brain. - John (bird whisperer)
And six appendages. - Jennifer Dittrich from iPhone
I don't think you can really make sense of the actions of mad geneticists who create bizarre human-animal hybrids ;) - Victor Ganata
But there is a set of genes you could manipulate that would cause that sort of reduplication to give you two thoraces and an extra set of limbs #NotMedicalAdvice - Victor Ganata
@John:a cow has four stomachs, though. @Jennifer: the arms have hands with opposable thumbs, markedly different from the horse-derived limbs. - Andrew C (✔)
Yes, but that still adds up to six. It's part of why dragons are a bit WTF as well. - Jennifer Dittrich
Six limbs in mammals is not entirely unheard of, although certainly not normal - Victor Ganata
The six limbs are probably easier to gengineer than the double thoraces. Although the redundant set of lungs would probably provide a selective advantage, assuming they're functional. - Victor Ganata
I bet the human-sized neck/throat limits how much air can be exchanged though. - Andrew C (✔)

When the Ku Klux Klan burn a cross in a black family’s yard, prominent Christians aren’t required to explain how these aren’t really Christian acts. Most people already realize that the KKK doesn’t represent Christian teachings. That’s what I and other Muslims long for—the day when these terrorists praising Mohammed or Allah’s name as they debase... -

Too much to tweet. Suffice it to say the passive aggressive lady behind me is the worst person in the world.
Dutifully came out of office cave so I could send student worker off to do stacks-work. Promptly rewarded with repeat-visitor reader's advisory ("I really liked the book you recommended last time...") and a visit from one of my favorite professors I don't actually know at all. :D

greenthepress: This sums up yesterday’s Senate vote on climate change pretty well.  Media take note: just because the Senate voted that climate change is real, doesn’t mean they agree with the scientific consensus that fossil fuels are causing it.  -
