Remember my mushroom growing experiment?
Well, the box said that you could get 2-3 “flushes” of mushroom growth, if you continued to mist the growth medium with water after the first harvest.
Ever the frugal gardener and experimenter, of course, I continued to mist dilligently for another 2 weeks and wouldn’t you know it? I got more mushrooms.
Nothing like the first harvest, mind you. So,still not really worth it from a cost perspective, but just as cool from a nerdy science perspective. And to be fair, I wasn’t really *as* dilligent as I should have been with the misting.
But, the handful of enokis that I got and nibbled on while giggling to Wait Wait Don’t Tell me on Saturday afternoon were tasty little numbers and well worth the minimal amount of effort.

Have you ever wondered if you are smart enough to join Mensa? (Ignoring the fact that it is a bunch of mostly pompous elitist white men, or so it is in my mind.)
I don’t have to tell you I am a super nerd, so taking this test was a highlight of my week last week.
I have no idea, really, what the number meant for my result, but apparently Mensa thinks I may have what it takes to become a member, and my results are consistent with a high IQ.
Shocking, right? Mensa thinks I’m smart enough to apply for a membership! Which only costs $40 for the test and then $70 a year after that.
Yeah, so that wasn’t much of a party, was it? (Well, it wasn’t unless, like me, you geek out on logic puzzles and brain teasers and all things nerdy. Which you probably don’t. Most people don’t. It’s better that you don’t. Trust me.)
Come back tomorrow, anWhat’s a party without food?
A boring party. A party I don’t want to go to. A party that will end about an hour after it starts and leave people feeling like they’ve been suckered.
A party you’ll not find me at.
So then. Tomorrow, a party. See you there. Or here. Whatever.
Do you like brain teasers and logic puzzles? I am such a nerd that I was truly upset that they had replaced the logic section with an essay on the GRE test mere months before I took it. I am still bitter.
