|Since the water was going to be turned off between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM, we all ran an errand and had McDonald's for lunch.
While I've stayed on the diet, I'm thinking I may need to alter my eating habits a bit. I've been periodically "zoning out" lately and don't really have a common cause. When I "zone out" it's like I don't have the ability to think things through and English suddenly seems like a complex foreign language. I can't really do very much more than just stare numbly. I'm wondering if I need to be more careful of calories or perhaps carbs; I may not be eating enough.
On the good news front, Fur and Faith was relaunched this evening. There's hardly any content, but I'll be adding that in random bursts soon. The colors of the top banner are determined via a liturgical calendar that's currently accurate up till next April.

I love this line near the end of the article: "It is not unusual for scientists to publish papers and, if they discover evidence that challenges them, to announce they were wrong. The idea that all scientific knowledge is provisional, able to be challenged and overturned, is one thing that separates matters of science from matters of faith."
