I don’t feel so bad about chugging coffee now

For those who drank four to six or more cups of coffee a day, this study found an associated reduced risk of bowel cancer. Of course, there’s no telling what kind of cancer drinking that much coffee might cause at the same time, but I’m caffeinated and I don’t care.

My day off

I’ve rearranged my work schedule to work M-Th 8-5 and get Fridays off. This is great, because now I get to sit at Spider House all day, which I had become accustomed to when ‘working from home’ for so long. So I get to catch up on my photo editing, other random computer tasks, maybe do a little contract work, or actually get back in the neuro lab once in a while.

Speaking of Spider House, I’m sitting here now. Johnny has Metallica’s “And Justice For All” playing at 9AM (which I think is great). I’m drinking a big ol’ mug of coffee, and I just discovered that Google Talk recognizes the “m/” (metal horns) emoticon, which is totally hilarious. It works even better if you have one of the colored emoticon sets enabled. It also doubles as a “hook em horns” sign, so that’s nice.

Here’s a list of gtalk emoticons I decided to dig up, just for you.
