other than that, just a few quick things:
- sox lost 5-1 to baltimore yesterday but buchholz did good so that's a nice change. royals were off, but the sox get today off and the royals play the mariners at 4:05pm
- i don't think i have conditioning today (no one at the school) which means i haven't done anything that physically strenuous since 2 wednesdays ago, between being sick and the snow day.
- does anyone know if people in castilla-la mancha (that's in spain) eat chocolate? we're having a "cultural experience" (since we can't call it a party) in spanish on friday and i'm making some mazapán (marzipan) for it and i'm considering dipping it in chocolate but i don't know if that's politically correct in terms of tradition.
- (haha 4 :) ) apparently anyone with blue eyes is related to each other. dutch scientists figured out that the blue-eye gene was the result of a brown-eye gene mutation some 6,000-10,000 years ago somewhere in northern/eastern europe, which means anyone with the melanin-lacking eyes are descendants of this "defective" and therefore share this same gene. conclusion? i'm distantly related to alex!
(i'm pretty sure those are blue eyes. or green, which is a variation of blue in terms of eye color genetics.)
