One of the things I like about this place is how little chocolatey treats appear in places you don't expect. Like the mud chocolate cupcake that showed up in my desk drawer. Cocolate makes everything, even silly men who like to bruise each other, much better.

And you're very welcome, oh chocolate fairy. :)

You got one of those too?

I have a sneaking suspicion I know where they came from. :)

*grins* Just a little one.

What are these hints you speak of? *mwha*

The chocolate in your hair, perhaps?

Ahhh. That'd do it. Did they taste okay? I was using this desert cookbook I found rather then a shake and bake packet.

Delicious. Although, I'm thinking it was more dessert than desert - not enough sand for the latter. ;)

*grins* Just making sure you pass your English final, firecracker. But I'll be good - wouldn't want to offend the maker of such fine cupcakes. ;)

It's okay. Better I get corrected now then in the test, right?

Why am I not asleep right now? I'm sure that I didn't mean to stay up till the sun rose again.

*nods* Exactly right.

And I know my excuse is I'm on nightshift again... If it keeps up, you know where you can get help with the sleeping. Sleep's just as important to brain function as eating properly.

Think it was just more a case of getting interested in the Bible and not realising what the time was. (Not that I'm suddenly finding religion by the way. Just thought that maybe I should read the thing, since half the world seem to think it has some merit. Dad was always really huge on understanding as much about the world you're living in as you could. He said that it meant you could talk to people in a way they'd understand and appreciate rather then just flapping your lips and assuming that it'd all come out right.)

By the way, so far I'm not seeing much I like. This God dude doesn't exactly sound like someone I'd want to invite round to dinner, ya know?

Ah, you must be still in the depths of the Old Testament. The thing to remember about the bible, and this is going to get me into so much trouble with my priest if he ever hears me say this, is that it's an interpretative document. It was written a very long time ago when cultural expectations were a lot different. Hence the smiting and the testing and the punishment from on high. God as a force to be feared and obeyed, because back them that's what people expected. The New Testment is very different - much more about loving each other and treating each other well and less hellfire and damnation. It's basically two different books.

Actually, if I remember my research correctly (and I do) - the Old Testament, or what passes for it today, was written comparatively recently on a grand scale. Before that, it was an oral history - and as simple logic tells us, oral histories are as accurate and relevant as an owner's manual for a Japanese car, written in French by a Swedish engineer, translated into English by a Spanish salesman, and read in Chinese by a Maori race car driver.

It's a metaphor. Dork.

Point being is that oral history is like the childhood game of "Telephone", taken to a millennial extreme. The chances of accuracy are so slim that it really can't be given any weight other than totally speculative fiction. Never trust any history that pre-dates scientific recording methods.

You want to stay on top, keep your skills sharp, then you need to find the challenges that can push you to be better. Faster. Stronger. Smarter.

I think I've found that challenge.

Uh-huh. And manly pride had _nothing_ to do with it...

But as long as there's no actual _injury_ involved, you're right. But it's the cold instruments in the fridge for both of you if you wind up down in medlab on one of my shifts. *smiles sweetly*
