My adorable "in the navy" brother-in-law, who as many of you know has been deployed FAR TOO LONG, returns home from the danger zone in June. Thank GAWD. Check him out chillaxing at The Cannes Film Festival last week. Kind of.

Who says port calls aren't any fun?

Dum dums remind me of the pediatrician's office.

Fav flav breakdown = cherry, butterscotch, cream soda/root beer, and later, blue raspberry.

Flavs that make me go EW = pineapple, watermelon, sour apple.

And "mystery" is all the flavs smooshed together, right?

"Dum Dums are made in about twelve different flavors; nine or ten of these flavors are classic flavors; two or three are cycled in and out. The "Mystery Flavor," present in every bag of Dum Dums, is a combination of two flavors in the bag. The combined flavors are random. This combination occurs because the production of Dum Dums is continuous--there is no stop between flavors. This practice results in the flavor combination."

Museum dedicated to ghosts of relationships past ...

"Unlike the destructive self-help instructions for recovery from failed loves, the Museum offers every individual the chance to overcome the emotional collapse through creation, i.e., by contributing to the holdings of the Museum. The individual gets rid of controversial objects , triggers of momentarily undesirable emotions, by turning them into museum exhibits, i.e., artefacts and thereby participating in the creation of a preserved collective emotional history."

The way back...

There’s a pool in the backyard of the rental house my family occupied for a year in 1984. This song reminds me of that pool.

It’s one of my happy songs.

Good Tams!

Self Esteem Room

Grab your insecurity blanket and relax, loser. High self esteem is totes overrated.

"Increasingly, psychologists are looking at such behavior and saying out loud what may go against the grain of how many people act: high self-esteem is not the same thing as healthy self-esteem. And new research by a psychology professor from the University of Georgia is adding another twist: those with “secure” high self-esteem are less likely to be verbally defensive than those who have “fragile” high self-esteem..."

"One of the ways in which high self-esteem can turn bad is when it is accompanied by verbal defensiveness—lashing out at others when a person’s opinions, beliefs, statements or values are threatened. So Kernis and his colleagues designed a study, reported in the current article, to see if respondents whose self-esteem is “fragile” were more verbally defensive than those whose self-esteem was 'secure'.”
