I love Apple Mango Tango wings.  They have a nice kick.

Telling you I made a point this fall/winter of following the weather in Chicago and compare it with a few northern cities' in Scandinavia and Russia. So far Chicago has had consistently colder weather than Moscow, let alone Helsinki or Stockholm. When people hear I'm from RomAnia they inevitably say-as Midwesterners live to talk about weather - you must be used to this weather. Heck no, back home with minimal protection you could grow figtrees in your backyard.

Maybe I should move to Chicago. I miss proper winter. I've used to having snow and temperature of something like -20°C. Now it's something like 0°C and not any snow in sight.

Did you see the temps on Sunday? It was around 60 or 70 felt tropical. I was wearing shorts.

So the dream I just woke up from included:

- A month-long assignment to read philosophical books written by Elvis Presley

- A small container at the store filled with eggs that had the yokes taken out of them but which were still for use/sale

- After I reported the egg problem and requested new eggs from my landlord (huh?) the police arrived with a small garbage container filled with a bit of trash and some half-eaten corn cobs. The corn was meant to replace the egg yokes. It also had some bugs, including yellow jackets, and the police asked me to return to trash can to the people they had borrowed it from.

There was more stuff earlier in the dream, but the above is what I remember from the end of the dream; and then I woke up. What is going on here?  ;D  ???

Didn't we have some fight about patriatch Bartholomew's alleged liberal abortion stance some time ago? He wrote fairly straightforward condemnation of abortion in his Christmas message.

It's the season for weird dreams, it seems. Yesterday mine included my grandparents' village, which is as sleepy as they get, go on lockdown and be swarmed by anti-terrorism agents. And normally I don't even dream at all. ???

The caffeine in coffee taps into the brain's dopamine stores, mimicking the euphoric effects commonly associated with harder drugs like cocaine and ecstasy.

And if that's not enough to convince you of the drink's powerful effect, know that coffee activates a system in our brains that secretes marijuana-like chemicals that control, among feeding and feelings of hunger, levels of happiness and euphoria.

http://www.businessinsider.com/two-things-make-coffee-irresistable-2011-10

The article is from 2011 but I hadn't noticed that before. I'm somewhat suprised over this. I've been taught that coffee keeps you awake but I had no idea of those somewhat euphoric effect. It fits my experience though.

I was at a funeral recently and on one of the tombstones in the cemetery was inscribed "Boven bij Jezus" - "Up there with Jesus". The only problem was that the lower half of the 'B' was faded and so the 'B' became an 'R', thus reading "Roven bij Jezus" - "Robbing with Jesus".

Of course, laughing was inappropriate and I went through a lot of lip-biting to suppress it. Someone should probably take a look at the tombstone.
