Yesterday was an exciting day. First off, my little sister (Rachel) (IMG_0221.jpg) is accepted to tech for computer science, and she came down for some “women in CS” orientation-type thing. Maybe they can convince her to go here, because I want her to but i don’t think she’s going to. I think that would be cool.
But even better was that I was about to go to class, and somebody said my name, and it was Beth! She was definitely one of my best friends at this school…well, one of my best friends in my college years, not just necessarily people at school…but she graduated in 2003 and moved to florida. Her company sent her here to do recruiting and stuff and so she was in the college of computing. We got to talk and catch up for a while at rocky mountain. I felt bad cause rachel got here and I was supposed to meet her but beth and I got hung up and rachel was sitting in the car in the parking deck for like…45 minutes. oops 🙁 but we eventually got her.
anyway, that’s all. but it was very exciting to me, beth is awesome. she needs to move back here and be my personal friend-slave.
also, i’m hungry and was looking up chicken tikka masala on wikipedia. I then started to read about curry and read this:
A number of studies have claimed that the reaction of pain receptors to the hotter ingredients in curries, even a Korma, leads to the body’s release of endorphins and combined with the complex sensorary reaction to the variety of spices and flavours, a natural high is achieved that causes subsequent cravings, often followed by addiction and a desire to move on to hotter curries. Defining this as “an addiction” is contested by other researchers.
I think i’m addicted to chicken tikka masala. i neeeeed it. now. i’m hungry. perhaps i shall visit my friend moe and his friend joey.
Brandtson right here at under the couch tomorrow!
