Today I was talking with one of my professors about a topic for an upcoming project. We were trying to figure out what words an acronym stood for. My professor was using the search button built into her Internet Explorer browser, and searching for the acronym. We couldn't find it there, so she decided to Google it (instead of using the MSN search that's built into IE). She went to her Favorites menu and looked for Google. Not finding it there, she went back to the MSN search window and did an MSN search for Google
. Let me repeat it. My professor did an MSN search for Google.
I had to put some effort into the expressionless face I barely maintained.

A few weeks ago I burned my arm cooking
Today? I burned my arm cooking. Because I am just that
I was boiling a pot of water. There was a lid on the pot. I went to take the lid off. (You see what's coming, don't you. Because most people know what happens when you de-pressurize something that is pressurized.) I lifted up the lid, and the steam attacked my arm. I ran it under water on and off for nearly two hours this time. Hopefully it won't scar like the other burns seems to be doing. They're still pretty red something like 6 weeks later.
Of course, when I told other people what happened, they laughed. Because everyone knows that you're supposed to open a lid so that the steam can release away from you, instead of toward you. (Everyone, that is, except for me.)
