  You know anybody who needs an "anti-stupid" pill?
OOOh, I do! Pick me! I'm guessing that once this passes the FDA, there will be a mass shortage just like we had on Cipro, Tamiflu, etc.

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German scientist has been testing an "anti-stupidity" pill with encouraging results on mice and fruit flies, Bild newspaper reported Saturday.

It said Hans-Hilger Ropers, director at Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, has tested a pill thwarting hyperactivity in certain brain nerve cells, helping stabilize short-term memory and improve attentiveness.

"With mice and fruit flies we were able to eliminate the loss of short-term memory," Ropers, 62, is quoted saying in the German newspaper, which has dubbed it the "world's first anti-stupidity pill."

  More Eggs...
These eggs came from
Adopt your own today!

I guess you could say that this months fad is adoptable eggs. I'm not sure how long these will amuse me, but I'm interested in seeing what they hatch into. Excuse me for being curious.

I got *almost* everything moved into my new office today. It's way too big for all my stuff, and it looks pretty bare. I wish I had a lot more plants and flowers, but I don't want to have to water them all. That reminds me that I need to buy two larger pots for my African violets. They're busting out of their pots.

I guess people will probably catch on that I am using the big office once they come in and see all my stuff moved tomorrow. I wish the transition could be a little bit smoother for those of us that are changing job titles but I'm sure it'll all work out in the end.

  Adopted Eggs..Woot

School starts on Tuesday officially, but I'm able to view my courses and begin the assignments now.

I guess it's natural to feel overwhelmed at first when taking on something so big after so long. That's what I'm reading in these other people's posts as well as in the books for the first class.

I hate to say it but I'm feeling a little bit overwhelmed at work, too. Once I realized the complete redundancy of what exactly we do for billing, I feel literally sick.

My goal is to come up with something to eliminate the wasted time we spend copying figures from one paper to another just to be entered into the computer. I have too many other things to do for this to make sense.

If there was an award for "Least Efficient Billing System" I believe we would take the prize. Sadly, the software that most of the other agencies use is too expensive. I have to come up with something.
It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
