The Princess and the Pea

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 12:00 pm

I have less than five months to buy a new bed. Of course, this should be plenty of time, except I am like Goldilocks and I want a mattress that is “just right.” I am like the Princess and the Pea, waking up black and blue whenever there is so much as a marble under the mattress. I’ve looked into some different options (and I found out my sleep number) but every time I think I’ve made up my mind, I come across conflicting information. Am I doomed to wake up in pain every morning no matter what I sleep on? No matter what the cost? I’m looking for a panacea, and I wish I could find one in my bed.

Bananimal

You’re cool if you know what a Bananimal is. My personal favorite is the Banocerous. My brother has two of them. We are hoping they mate.

What is your dominant eye?

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 2:24 pm

We played a parlor game in 6th grade to find our dominant eye. You have to keep both eyes open! Then stick out your thumb and cover up an object. Then, close one eye. Open it, and close the other.

Through one eye, your thumb should be right on top of the object. Through the other eye, the object is way off to the side.

At work the other day, I learned a new parlor game for testing eye dominance. This new way is even better. You cut out a small hole in a piece of paper and look at something through the hole, KEEPING BOTH EYES OPEN. Then, shut one eye. Open it and shut the other. You should achieve the same result as the thumb. Make sure not to move the paper or your head when you do the experiment though.

I am right-handed and right eye dominant.

Also, did you know that your genetics can make your urine stinky after you eat asparagus? I guess I have that gene.
