The following randomness afflicts you courtesy of the fact that I actually got through my mail and caught up on LJ before posting it:
Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness; no laziness; no procrastination; never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
I haven’t read everything here, but it’s good stuff on child safety:
Escape School Study Confirms Sleep is Essential for Health, Creativity and More Sushi that I MIGHT be persuaded to try Soople—easy expert search was created to help the creator’s mother do effective searches without worrying about lots of options or different sites.
LarvaSonic supposedly kills mosquito larvae with sonic bursts. I wonder how well it works?
How was Avogadro’s number determined? brought back more than I would have thought I remembered from two years of high school chemistry.

Engaged in a Rageful Dance
Messiness is not always an individual matter. Sometimes the house is just the floor on which we do a dance of disorganization with others. It may be that someone in the house (maybe you) is resisting keeping the house nicer because he or she wants to show anger. An example may be a child who is leaving stuff around the house and not cleaning up the room as a statement of independence. Or a spouse who leaves things messy as a weapon in a family conflict.
A more subtle example is that deep in your own heart you may be resisting being made to do what you don’t want to do. Maybe you are angry about the nature of life that forces you to spend your time doing grunge jobs that you hate. Or maybe it is the voice of your mom, the neatness police, echoing from the past.
Our messy behavior may have deep roots for some people that need to be considered because the rageful dance is very destructive.
