The white blood cell burp and the hair gel bubble chipmunk

Today I felt like throwing my desk over.  I’m not angry or frustrated.  Brain-fried is more like it, but interestingly enough, not in a bad way.  I think I’m excited, and I think it’s because I found little informational nuggets and I’ve been socking them away in my cheeks like a squirrel.
