Today I learned a number of new things:
1. There is a book entitled : Venereal Disease and The Lewis & Clark Expedition. There are three shelves devoted to Lewis & Clark at my campus library.
2. Pennyroyal tea is drank to induce abortions. I’m guessing every good Nirvana fan already knew this, but it was news to me. *Update – or cure headaches, who knew pennyroyal was so multipurpose?
3. My neighbors are jerks.
4. UPS are idiots.
Numbers 1 and 2 were discovered during my research on American Indian healing for a reference project.
Numbers 3 and 4 were discovered when I tried to figure out why my Valentine’s Day gift to myself hadn’t arrived yet. UPS attempted to deliver my package to my address, which is in the form of XX20 Street Name, Apartment #. I wasn’t home. So they went over to XX10, same apartment # and gave them the package. The residents of XX10 my apartment number signed for it and kept it. I am, of course, too chicken to march over and ask WTF? I’m letting UPS and Hot Topic duke it out.
