don't you hate it when you sleep in through your alarm clock? you wake from a nice slumber, check your clock, realize you should've been up an hour ago, see that you must have switched the "off" button (not the "snooze" one) in a foggy haze of sleepiness. you immediately jump out of bed as if you've just been miraculously raised from the dead, switch your brain to panic mode, & continue getting ready as fast as humanly possible as if you had a drill sergeant firing bb gun pellets @ your feet. you're kicking yourself all whilst still remembering that vivid dream from a few moments ago...come on, body! did you have to wake up an hour late?! not like 10-15 minutes? geeeeeez

i read on artdaily this morning that they think they've found a new da vinci! they used forensic sciences to place a fingerprint found on a painting called "la bella principessa" turns out that da vinci liked to finger paint, well kinda, but i think it's so neat-o how they got all columbo w/ it & were able to match it to another fingerprint they had found of his. the painting went from being worth about $19,000 to $150 million. i wish my fingerprints were worth that much :( my water bottle could then buy me a home in the hamptons.

Dancing mania was a social phenomenon that occurred primarily in mainland Europe between the 14th and 18th centuries; it involved groups of people, sometimes thousands at a time, who danced uncontrollably and bizarrely, seemingly possessed by the devil. Men, women, and children would dance through the streets of towns or cities, sometimes foaming at the mouth until they collapsed from fatigue...
Logorrhoea is defined as an “excessive flow of words” and, when used medically, refers to incoherent talkativeness occurring in certain kinds of mental illness, such as mania.

Leck mich im Arsch is a canon in B-flat major composed by Mozart, with lyrics in German. It was one of a set of at least six canons probably written in Vienna in 1782. Sung by six voices as a three-part round, it is thought to be a party piece for his friends. An idiomatic translation would be “Kiss my arse”. The scatological title and lyrics have been used as evidence to support the contention that Mozart had Tourette syndrome.
