The Blue M&M.
The Blue M&M.
The food dye that gives blue M&M’s their colour can help mend spinal injuries, researchers say. The compound Brilliant Blue G blocks a chemical that kills healthy spinal cord cells around the damaged area – an event that often causes more irreversible damage than the original injury. BBG not only reduced the size of the lesion but also improved the recovery of motor skills, tests on rats showed. Those treated with BBG were later able to walk, although with a limp. Rats that did not receive the BBG solution never regained the ability to walk. On the downside, the treatment causes the skin to temporarily turn bright blue and BBG needs to be injected soon after the trauma. The test injections were given within 15 minutes.

Domino’s Responds – The GOP Should Learn From This.

Check out this video from the President of Domino’s Pizza, in response to the recently posted video of two employees deliberately contaminating food. The Republicans who nearly ruined this country over the last 8 years could really stand to learn a few things from Domino’s.

I’m ordering Domino’s tonight for dinner.

Thanksgiving Weekend

I really didn’t do much extra sleeping over the entire long weekend, but just the mental break from work has been a major help. It was also nice to have Nathaniel around… I’m more of a people person than I sometimes think, I guess. Having someone around to talk to and just… be around… is really nice. In related news, we had Tredd drop in over the weekend, as well.

Yeah. I know, I live with Matt. The thing is, over the average weekend, I’m guessing he comes out of his room for less than 4 hours total. That’s not a lot of social time. Having Nathaniel here for a bit makes me realize that I need more social interaction.

Washington MonumentIn related news, we had Tredd drop in over the weekend, as well. He got a brief tour of the Mall – specifically the Washington, WW2, Vietnam, Lincoln, Korean, and DC WW1 memorials. After the Mall, we metro’d over to DuPont Circle to have Dinner at Lauriol Plaza. It was great getting to hang out with him, he’s a good guy. I rarely – if ever – remembered that he’s only 18. He’s probably one of the most mature 18-year-olds I’ve ever encountered.

Well, this upcoming week is the big push – the project we’ve been working on for months and months now goes live over the weekend. Universe willing, by Monday, my life is going to be much, much less complicated and stressful. Of course, every time I’ve even dared to think that this year, the next 6 months have been even more hectic than the last, so I should probably start stocking up on the caffeine and Percocet now.
