I feel like summarizing.
Things I learned at last night’s Cafe Scientifique:
- fish contain pbts and mercury.
- smaller fish, wild fish (such as salmon), younger fish, and fish that are lower on the food chain are safer to eat than the opposites.
- the only way to lose pbts is by losing weight, but then it is in your bloodstream.
- mercury never goes away.
- women pass these toxins on to offspring and these toxins can cause developmental problems.
- women should not eat shark or mackerel ever. basically .
- DNR’s Lake Finder will give you more info about your favorite Minnesotan lake(s).
Yoga asanas to practice for homework this weekend:
- Virabhadrasana, “Warrior II”
- Parivrtta Virabhadra Konasana, “Revolved Warrior Angle”
- Trikonasana, “Triangle”
- I finally received my deposit refund from my previous residence and I am slightly irritated at some of the cleaning expenses.
- I am finally planning a small party to show off my new home and that is exciting.
- Coworker Rita is testing EBay for selling art. If she fares well, I might give it a shot, too.
- Seriously: that spider I ran into last night? HUGE. I wish I had taken a photo of it next to a coin so I could show you. But I was too horrified and busy trying to be brave enough to kill it. It took three paper towels and a nearly clogged toilet to conquer my fear. I was also afraid because I don’t have a plunger.
- Things to buy: plunger, cotton balls.
- I hope that I get to do some karaoke again soon. Maybe tonight?
- I may have to meander over to the Stone Arch Bridge Arts Festival this weekend.
