By using MRIs to scan the brains of college students as they fell in love, neuroscientists have identified the portion of the brain associated with romantic, passionate love.

Interestingly, it's not located in the same area of the brain that controls purely physical attraction or the part associated with long-term emotional attachment. Instead, it's located in the part of the brain associated with basic needs such as hunger and thirst.

So, my only question is ... since they know where it is, they can lobotomize it, right?
Drinking my morning latte is almost a little sad, because I know it's the only caffeine I'll have for the day. So I stretch it out, make it last as long as possible.

I caught myself gazing longingly at Dean's diet coke (and I really don't even like diet coke) during lunch today. Mmm, caffeine ...

But I was good. Drinking lots of water and lemonade, eating less junk. Someone pat me on the head, damnit, I'm a good puppy.

I don't know what the hell is going on, but lately, I've been having a ton of these little episodes of what my ex always called "rib pinch". When I breathe in, I'll get this sudden, sharp, stabbing pain on my left side, usually just below my breast, sometimes coming up the center of my chest. It feels muscular; it's like a really, really bad side stitch, just front and center. I can usually stretch it out, but it hurts like a bitch.

The thing that's worrying me is that it happens so often. Over the past week, I'll have that happen three or four times a day. Ex used to always say that it happened due to dehydration, but I've been drinking a ton of water, and added juice and sports drinks in this weekend, and it's still happening. Corynne says I probably need to have my back adjusted.

Whatever it is, I just would like for it to go away.
