    My mom died this week. She had been on a downward spiral since my dad died a couple of months ago; she missed him terribly, and I think it was more than her limited mental resources (she had multi-infarct dementia) could handle. But she told me years ago that she had done everything really important that she wanted to do in her life, so whenever death came, she would be all right with it. Knowing that makes me all right with it, too.

    New phones always fall on the first day. It’s a universal law. It’s motherfriggin science. If you got a new phone and it didn’t drop the first day, then you’re a witch and you need to stop cheating because it’s not fair.

    My cat found a christmas bow. Like the kind you stick on presents. I have no idea where he found it. He’s not an outdoor cat. Our christmas stuff is packed away in the attic only accessible through a closed off staircase in a closed off closet that he has no way of getting into… and he’s been playing with it nonstop for three days.

    I love my pets, but I think it's creepy when people start acting like their pets are their children. On my commute this morning, I saw a car with a sticker that read, “My child has four paws.” I found myself wondering, if this person were in a burning building and had to choose between rescuing their dachshund or a neighbor's child, which one would they save?

    I love writing tips. Like I LOVE them. I can spend hours on google searching for specific tips and soaking in every little ounce of advice I can get my greedy little paws on. 
    Then I abandoned facebook and joined twitter. There I discovered a treasure trove of editors and publishers posting practically hourly, and I was so excited! 
    And then I discovered that 90% of the writing pages I’ve found on twitter are full of shit. Full of sweeping generalizations, no concept of word economy, conflicting advice within the same article, or just baseless friggin judgments. SMH. I feel so disillusioned right now.

    So my dad died recently. He was very old, and was refusing treatment because he was tired of how debilitated he had become, so I’m at peace with it. He had a good life. But this morning, I had my first “I have to remember to tell him about...oh, wait, I can’t” moment, and that made me a little sad.

    The duodenum is a C-shaped section of the small intestine that connects directly to the stomach. Medical text books generally state that digestive juices and enzymes from the liver, gallbladder and pancreas empty into the duodenum to aid digestion.  Gallbladder?!  That’s literally nothing more than a reservoir for the bile given to it by the liver! Stop giving the gallbladder credit for something it doesn’t deserve!
    Okay, medical rant over.

    Hope all the moms on here had a Happy Mother’s day yesterday. One of the kids I helped raise nabbed me for a Sushi Meal yesterday. Was great to spend time with her, since I hadn’t in 6 month. Really miss some of my heart adopted kids. They all grew up and got busy in their own lives.
