FACT: BEETS KILL PARASITES

Alright, so beets don't really kill parasites, but it sounds like something Dwight Shrute would say after hearing the parasite lecture I got to hear this afternoon. Here are some real facts taken directly from our health handbook:

-Roundworms may migrate, perforate, or obstruct bowels
-Hookworms attach to mucosa of small bowel and suck blood
-Female pinworms rupture, releasing eggs

So, I was pretty pumped after hearing that lecture! Our handbooks also came with some great pictures. They kind of reminded me of Katie's book from SIFAT. If you saw it, you know what I mean!

Fortunately, I'm feeling great physically so far!

Today I also got my 2nd round of shots, Rabies #1 and Japanese B#1. There are still many shots to go, but they really haven't been terrible. Nothing is as bad as that stupid tetnus shot!

FACT: Beets are almost as amazing as Jim. Kris got me hooked. I started with season one on DVD and I've made my way to season 3. I am so in love I don't want it to end. I want to marry Jim. I think I would take him over Andy Baldwin.

I especially want to marry Jim after finding out that Andy Baldwin is going to marry Deanna and Jesse. You've gotta tell me all about the new season. None of the netowrk websites will let me watch the entire episodes from overseas. Such a bummer.
