The Fungus Among-us

Peoria people:

Do NOT buy produce from Shop 'n Save, formerly Cub Foods in the Big Hollow shopping plaza.

Yesterday, I bought some raspberries. As I was paying for them, I noticed a big fuzz of MOLD growing on one of the raspberries. So I pointed out the mold and asked the cashier if I could just exchange it for another one.

She offered to go exchange it for me, but I said I would go myself. I wanted to pick through the selection and find the lease moldy package possible.


My mother has been warning me about Shop n' Save. I guess it's time to listen.

Woe is my purse

I knew better than to put that open snack pack of Fudge Stripe cookies in my purse.

Not only do I have melted chocolate now, but cookie crumbs as well.

Grumble grumble.

Psychotherapy and Batman

I came across this story on NPR, called "The Id, The Ego and the Superhero: What makes Batman tick?" An interesting little piece to get us all excited for The Dark Knight Rises which will be opening later this week.

From there, I discovered Dr. Robin Rosenberg, Ph.D., ABPP. She has done extensive research on Superheroes and their psychology. It is absolutely fascinating.

I recommend following the above links and reading about her. From her website, you can get to her blog which has some excerpts from her book "What's the Matter with Batman?" An Unauthorized Clinical Look Under the Mask of the Caped Crusader.

The Power of the Tag

The most frequently viewed post on my Korea blog is the post entitled "Pixxx." I suppose the Triple X at the end aided in all those hits.

Surprisingly, it is only the most frequently viewed page by only one click.

Society is redeemed.
