Flakiness: A 100-Word, Study Break Post

The skin on my fingertips is peeling off. I’ve been reading a lot of abnormal psychology lit. Mix the two, and what do you get? Psychosomatic leprosy.

I expressed this hypothesis to my friend Wynne. Her response: “I think you have dry skin.”

For future reference -- displaying your dry skin to classmates isn’t the best “getting to know you” technique.

“What do you think of Charlottesville so far?” offered a ponytailed guy in Developmental Psychopathology.

“Crazy! See my fingers?”

I knew that wouldn’t fly, even in a psychopathology class. Self-destructive antisocial tendencies? Suddenly, the fingertips aren’t looking so bad.

This week we learned those rumors were true. I can't speak for Adobe or anyone else, but my guess is that Apple's homegrown products, such as iPhoto 5, don't set very well with Adobe strategists -- something ...

It's okay. Today, I think I admitted my, uh, clandestine reading activity to my children's lit groupmates. Peeling finger skin is nothing comparatively. I hope the reading is reduced so that you can get your finger skin back. -A

I think my peeling fingers would like "Kavalier and Clay" much better than the psychopathology textbook. That's my justification.

The little trashcan icon has disappeared, so I can't erase the spam. Foiled again! It wouldn't be so bad without the insincere compliments. And the little smiley face, too....how cruel.

Hey, you have a really funny blog. I especially liked the part about [archivequery::topic-tag-A1] and [archivequery::topic-tag-A2]. I will totally come back for more updates.

I have a website too! It features the inside scoop about personal enhancement products, affordable pharmaceuticals, and easy-to-obtain money from deposed African heads of state! Come see it at totalcrockofdonkeycrap.com!

Fake comment spam aside -- Kavalier and Clay rocked. Oh, if only I could have taught books like that in English class.

I told a guy once my fingertips were peeling and he said, "Fingertips peeling? My fingeertips peel every spring. Fingertip peeling is nothing. Nothing."
I apologized for bringing it up.

I dunno...if we'd read K&C we might have booted Ethan Frome, and poor Ethan needed all the attention he could get.

I'd take fingertip peeling to foot stubbing, but foot stubbing isn't as noteworthy...or psychosomatic.

Eurycoma longifolia has different names in different parts in the country including bidara laut, babi kurus, and tongkat ali. It is very a flowering plant indigenous to South East Asia, especially Indonesia and Malaysia. Pasak Bumi is mostly a small evergreen tree might grow up to 15 m (50 feet) in height. All parts of one's plant taste bitter but have great medicinal properties. Although it functions as an anti-malarial and anti-diabetic herb besides, pasak bumi is mostly famous for its ability to enhance libido and enlarge the male vital organ.
