Hey there everyone. I'm on a laptop, and have candy! Now, on to the Order of Business.

 Nerdfighter's cite may hate my computer's face
 Sleep overs and interesting smells
 Spreading the word
 Weird spacing
 Song of the day
 Quote of the day
 Question of the day
 Something to think about
I have come to the conclusion that Nerdfighter's cite and my computer have a disagreement of sorts. On my computer, many links and such refuse outright to work. Also, it will not allow me to log off. The result is my typing this from a laptop. There are a few pros and cons to this. Pros: The links all work! Also, I can entertain myself with the amusing little clicking noises this keyboard makes. Cons: The shift button and 'a' are conspiring against me! If I want to make a capitol 'a' I can not use the shift button. It acts as if I am pressing ctrl+alt. Very bothersome.I am forced to click CAPS lock. I wonder if any other of the letters do that. Time to test this! BCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. Nope, only the 'a'. I wonder what could be the cause of this.
Anyways, last night I stayed the night at a friend's house. She's a Juggalette as well. Seeing as this is a rare occasion for me, I used it as a learning opportunity by studying the different relations, etc, in her household.Oddly enough it was not the social interactions I found most curious, but the household itself. If I were to be specific, I would say the scent. Not in a rude way, don't jump to conclusions. It was simply very different from mine own. I began to think of how scents affect us. For example, one could be in an extremely hostile situation, but can remain calmer if they smell something differently. On the other side, if someone is even in a safe environment, they may be uneasy if the place smells like something generally unpleasant, like a hospital. I began to wonder about the capabilities of scents. Sense of smell is the quickest evocation of memory as well as a large link to attraction. Here's an example. I'll not lie, I'm often attracted to women. This led me to pay attention to what peaks other women's attention in a mate. As someone with a sensitive nose, I turned to scents. I've realized even ethnicity plays into attraction on that level. Many Caucasian women enjoy a strong, almost chemical flowery scent, whereas Hispanic and Native women are drawn more to a musky scent. This is all in my personal experience, but it's an interesting subject to pay attention to. I'm thinking of carrying these studies a bit further. How knows, perhaps a different choice in cologne could affect the outcome of an interview with a potential employer.
I've been talking to people about Nerdfighters for a while now, and telling people about John and Hank. I'm thinking of searching out other Nerdfighters in my community. Any one from the 520 reading this should comment so I know you're out there!
I am unsure if it is the computer or the system, but some of the spacing in my typing seems quite off. When I click the enter button, it goes to the next line, but instead of being directly under the words like this is to the above line, it's a bit farther, which bothers me. Here, so you can see.
There's quite a gap. My point in telling you this is to apologize for my inconsistent OB above. Haha.
Song of the day:
Elle Me Dit by MIKA. The original is in French, but if you dislike listening to foreign languages there is one version he's done in English. I still recommend the original for several reasons. One, he changed a lot of the English, I feel it wasn't even quite a translations, just a similar song. Two, the original is longer. And three, the English isn't released on CD, so the only videos of it are concert recordings, which are miserable to deal with.
Quote of the day:
"While my children were young, we lived in the land of Leapin' Weasle which, of course, was centered by the castle of Clumpin' Litter. We had many knights; Willber, Earnie May, Sir Dudley, etc." C. Fullerton.
Question of the day:
What kind of scents do you notice? Are there any really unique scents/reactions you take notice of in your life?
Something to think about:
The 'F' word. Everyone looks at it differently. Many cultures, modernly, think of it as a 'horrific' word. Why? What made it that way? None of the words it is driven from are necessarily offensive, so why do we find it as such?
Today's blog hasn't become much more interesting, has it? Hah. My bad.
OBEs to Katrina for the fun sleep over and the food for thought. Also to
Trixie Fun Size for being the first, and only, commentor on my blog. Thank you greatly!
