TGIF

I am leaving work today at 1:30. Hurray for an early start to the weekend! Huzzah! As soon as I blow this popsicle stand, I'm heading straight to the pottery studio ... to make pots. Yay!

After pottery, I'm heading over to Y's.

And that is the extent of my weekend plans thus far.

Although, I am hoping Tomokito organizes some sort of Project Runway Marathon viewing on Sunday.

Saturday I really, really need to work on organizing my house to get ready for the madness which will be descending upon it March 15-18 ... and beyond!

I started the coconut/almond vodka infusion last night. Keep your fingers crossed that it will turn out yummy.

Here's a little something to think about from Yahoo! News:

Researchers at the University of Tokyo concluded that ethanol -- an intoxicating agent in alcohol -- does not cause memory to decrease, as widely believed, but instead locks it in place.

The researchers, led by pharmacology professor Norio Matsuki, gave mild shocks to lab rats to condition them to fear. As a result, the rats would freeze in terror and curl up the moment they were put in their cages.

Researchers then immediately injected the rats with ethanol or saline.

The researchers found that rats with alcohol in their veins froze up for longer, with the fear on average lasting two weeks, compared with rats that did not receive injections.

"If we apply this study to humans, the memories they are trying to get rid of will remain strongly, even if they drink alcohol to try to forget an event they dislike and be in a merry mood for the moment," the study said.


Do you think by "apply this to humans" they mean "give them electric shocks and inject them with booze?" Because, if so, SIGN ME UP!!! *w00t*

Possibly more later. *smooches*
