It's not rocket science

Not much to post on the last couple of days. I overcame a big fear and went to the dentist yesterday. Had two fillings done. I'm glad that is over! It's amazing that I can give birth to babies without medications, but I'm a total chicken when it comes to getting my teeth worked on.

The other thing occupying my time is helping Leelee with her science fair project. She has this crush on Alton Brown so wanted to do a food science related project. She picked "Why do Onions Make You Cry." This means I've spent a lot of time crying lately as we experimented.

I found this wiki article on onions very interesting. Apparently, the ancient Egyptians worshiped onions. Scientists have also managed to genetically alter an onion to make a no-cry version. I'm not big on the genetic modifications so I'll probably skip this onion when it hits the stores.

  1. I feel exactly the same about onions, LOL. What a good idea for a sci project. Great on getting to the dentist - that's something I need to do too.


Thanks and have a great day!
