From: Mom
i woke up this a.m. to find the thermostat set at 74!!!!!!!
first of all, it should never be at 74, even if it's 3 degrees outside.
turn off the a/c if you're cold.  but do not overreact and turn the thermostat up to HELL level. seriously. it's as hot in here as it is in HELL. 
this is not funny. 74 is uncomfortable and unhealthy. 


My "Alcohol With Pasta" Dream...

i need to tell you about my dream last night. 
it was a hospital setting, and this young female doctor told me she had to tend to something, and that i needed to sterilize all the tools.  i wasn't sure i could do it because sterilizing everything was an involved process and she had gone over it very quickly.  she very sweetly reassured me that she KNEW i could do it, and then she left. dad thought she was being condescending, but i knew she had faith in me. 

so i nervously started looking through those little white metal drawers and cabinets, and found some cloths and a bottle of antiseptic alcohol.  i wasn't sure if this is what i was supposed to use, but thought, "oh, what are the chances of a patient getting an infection."  then i realized the chances were quite high.   nevertheless, i slowly poured some alcohol onto a cloth.

curly pasta started coming out of the bottle.  i thought, "this can't be the correct alcohol" and i looked at the label and it said, "ALCOHOL WITH PASTA."  i frantically started searching for a pasta-free bottle of alcohol, when someone came in and told me i had to stop what i was doing and go back to my department.  i was very relieved to not have to deal with this.
