Ouf

According to an article in Scientific American entitled Blogging is Good for You:
[...] lesions in Wernicke’s area, located in the left temporal lobe, result in excessive speech and loss of language comprehension. People with Wernicke’s aphasia speak in gibberish and often write constantly. In light of these traits, Flaherty speculates that some activity in this area could foster the urge to blog.

I think I can safely say that do not suffer from this mysterious activity in Wernicke's area. Well, that's one less thing to worry about, I suppose.

Placebo effect working this morning, Lesley?

'As social creatures, humans have a range of pain-related behaviors, such as complaining, which acts as a “placebo for getting satisfied" ...'
