On the radio today, I heard about a study that claims if you give a name to a cow, she will give more milk than a cow without a name. The controversy about this theory is the premise that giving a name to a cow would imply better care. What disturbs me the most is that a study was conducted about this in the first place and that I'd even end up writing about it.

The Ox, or the Buffalo sign symbolizes prosperity through fortitude and hard work. Those born under the influence of the Ox or Buffalo are fortunate to be stable and persevering. The typical Ox is a tolerant person with strong character. Not many people could equal the resolution and fearlessness that the Ox exhibits when deciding to accomplish a task. Ox people work hard without complaints at work or at home. They know that they will succeed through hard work and sustained efforts, and do not believe in get-rich-quick schemes.
President Obama was born in the Year of the Ox. Go oxen!
I heard tell on the TV yesterday that if you freeze a banana at -15 degrees for 5 hours, you can hammer a nail into wood with it. It's not quite cold enough to do that here so I'm just throwing it out there in case it is cold enough to try this out somewhere else. You never know when one needs to build something with a frozen banana hammer.
Last week end, one of my former classmates participated in the 8th Annual No Pants 2k9 NYC Subway Ride sponsored by Improv Everywhere. 1200 to 1500 participated in this event in 30 degree temperatures. Even snow did not deter these pantless pedestrians. As for my friend, I think he may have just lucked out having timed his forgetting to finish getting dressed with this event. Next time, he may not be so fortunate.

Today I awoke to a strange sensation. It took me a few seconds to identify what had interrupted my dream. You see my pug likes to sleep under the covers. Apparently he found my belly button to be lick worthy. No need to check for navel lint today!

Last summer felt hotter And winter seems much colder.
I rack my brain for happy thoughts, To put down on my pad,
But lots of things, That come to mind Just make me kind of sad.
There was a time not long ago When life was quite a blast.
Now I fully understand About 'Living in the Past'.
We used to go to friends homes, Baseball games and lunches.
Now we go to therapy, to hospitals, And after-funeral brunches.
We used to have hangovers, From parties that were gay.
Now we suffer body aches And sleep the night away.
We used to go out dining, And couldn't get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags, Come home and take a pill.
