Stem Cells And Parking Garages

Captain Carl and I were discussing this last night. We were just hanging out, talking about how awesome it is that FINALLY stem cell research will happen in our own country. The Captain, in his quest for all knowledge in the universe, has read a lot about stem cell research and was telling me some stuff about it. Stuff I can't remember now, because my quest for knowledge? Pretty much limited to gossip, snacks and ghost hunting. Kidding! Kind of.

So Eco Nazi drifts through the room right at that point and I just KNEW he'd have something brilliant to say about our topic of discussion. And of course, I was right.

Eco Nazi: You guys talking about stem cell research?

The Captain: Sure are...

Eco Nazi: I wrote a paper about it one time. If you guys have any questions, just let me know.

The Captain: We'll be sure to do that.

Eco Nazi: I sent it to the President. He probably didn't read it, though.

Me: Yeah, probably not. Presidents are weird that way.

The last few days, the roommates have been entertaining themselves by riding the Dart Rail into downtown Dallas. They came back from their first trip and told us they snuck into the King Tut exhibit at the DMA. But they got caught after the first room and got kicked out. They thought this was hilarious and awesome. Then they wandered around some residential high rises, pretended to visit someone so they could ride the elevator to the top of the building and then got lost in a parking garage "for like 45 minutes" and it was "really funny".

Sigh and eye roll. Double eye roll.

At least they are still washing their dishes after every meal. Even though I have to re-wash most of the pans because they wash them with just a splash of cold water. You know, to save the environment from wasteful water usage.

I've pretty much decided we're going to use disposable styrofoam plates and cups for every meal in retaliation.

Ha ha ha ha!! I love the styrofoam cups and plates idea!!
Wow! I had forgotten how much fun being young is. Getting lost in parking garages was one of the best parts of my childhood! I was wasted out of my mind though. Are they using drugs???? ;)

You should have told Eco Nazi that the president "DID" read his paper and that's why he decided it wasn't a good idea. You know? Just to mess with him!
I wouldn't mind a copy of that myself!!

Oh so wonderful to wake up, kick on the Mac and discover a new post from you, Missy - you never fail to delight.

I pity a person who can't find anything more entertaining then getting lost and elevator rides...

Can't tell you how much the thought of Stem Cell research thrills me.

Do you wonder how many tabs of LSD are now residing in your house?

Also, my word verification is CONTS.

Well... I never.

Betsy...good point about the LSD.

Oh shit.
