Even More Updatez

I'm really busy. It sounds like a cop out but it's true. I have doctors appointments and road trip planning (I did really well at stick shift! I only stalled a few times!; I have to buy Dramamine and weird wristband things to keep me from getting car sick; We have to buy No Doz/Adderall. Lots of it). I'm doing freelancing tech stuff for my mom's friend to make some extra money. I'm seeing Radiohead next week and have to go into New York on Wednesday night for a lil gathering and I have pitches to write. I'm not complaining! I'm super excited. But it kind of sort of explains my recent disappearance.

What you can expect in the upcoming days:
  • A post on sex-positive, pro-porn feminism from a different angle than you'd expect.
  • A review of Pineapple Express - I'm seeing it tonight at midnight.
  • A review of the Radiohead show Josh and I hit up next week.
  • A big, long, top secret essay from Josh
Etc, etc, etc. Hopefully I'll get the first thing up before I head to the movies. We'll see.

Why would you tease me with the JoBros and then not writing anything about them?

Jess and Josh said...

You should know by now that *everything* has to do with the JoBros.

Hey jess. I used to work at a retail pharmacy and saw those wristbands all the time. They always looked a little fishy to me. I found this article which confirms my suspicions. I thought you might like to take a look at it. http://www.webmd.com/cancer/news/20030829/wristbands-ease-chemo
It basically says the wristbands only act as a placebo. I can't imagine they're too expensive but why spend money on them when dramamine can actually work above and beyond a placebo effect?

Ahh I wish you hadn't told me it's a placebo! Placebos work sooo well for me. You could give me a tablet and tell me it will put me to sleep and it could be a Skittle and I'd promptly fall asleep. It's all mental.

Oh well. You *did* save me $12 so thanks, M. :) I suppose I'll be stickin to the Dramamine.

My name is Benjamin Mardell and i would like to show you my personal experience with Adderall.

I have taken for 1 years. I am 46 years old. This drug completely changed ny life. I no longer feel constantly irritable like I'm about to explode. I can focus and complete tasks, I'm nicer to people. I just had my performance review at work and my boss said my work had been exceptional and wants to promote me to a senior policy advisor positiion. My compulsivity has also been reduced- I don't overeat and rarely drink anymore. I also sleep better and no longer need a sleep aid.

Side Effects :
Brief euphoria when I first started taking it and hypersexuality. Both sx have since moderated.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Benjamin Mardell
