It took a lot of back and forth and emails getting lost, but I got her signed up!

And now she's claiming she didn't ever ask for this in the first place. Yeah, right. I get that she wants to spend time with her friends, but - dude, she spends hours with them every single day. She can take a day off and maybe make some new friends, something she frequently claims she wants.

Those are some SERIOUSLY jerkface bacteria!

(If Dylan Roof gets executed, after trying to fire his lawyers, does he get a Darwin Award? >_> ...am I a bit dark-humor? >_> )

Ugh, one would be surprised at how many people think imprisoned murderers are sexxay. (Like... any. Surprises me. -_- ) I don't think Darwin Awards count until the person is totally unable, not just unlikely.

Wait, aren't chemotherapy drugs powerful poisons? The idea being that tumors are more vulnerable to them than the rest of you, but only just barely. It sounds like they've discovered that our microbiome can include bacteria that try to neutralize a poison for us!
