story time...

Get ready to be sicked out to the extreme. Does everyone remember me talking about the sicknast sheep brain that I have to dissect for my biological psychology course? No? Ok...well go here and here...and then you will be all caught up.

Onto the story of the day. There are four lab tables in this class...four people to each table...one nasty sheep brain per table. I am here representing Table Numero Dos...we are located right next to Table Numero Uno. Table Numero Uno is where this debacle took place...

So on Tuesday I am sitting in class minding my own business, I am taking notes...while trying to cover my nose, not look at the actual brain or the slides of the brain, AND trying to control my gag reflex (yep! go me! i am such an amazing multi-tasker). I hear the most blood-curdling screech I have ever heard in my life. It was coming from Table Numero Uno...I look up and the poor girl sitting two people away from me is SPITTING OUT A CHUNK OF THE CEREBELLUM OF THE SHEEP BRAIN!! Spitting it out!! Spitting it out of her MOUTH ...along with what looked like a vomit-inducing mixture of saliva and formaldehyde...

I honestly thought I was going to throw up...needless to say the poor girl who was munching on a sheep brain did throw up...although how she made it out of the classroom before vomiting I will never know...

So...what have we learned from this post? Let's review...

Moral #1: Do not become a psychology major...because you will be forced to take biological psychology and you will have to dissect something gross.

Moral #2: Do not talk or open your mouth for ANY reason, if you are unfortunate enough to already be enrolled in a class like this, or are already a psychology major and it is too late to go back.

keep this shut at all times while dissecting anything...trust me you will thank me later...
Moral #3: If you are going to puke at school...try your hardest to make it out of the classroom before doing so...(trust me, I thank that girl for not causing a chain-vomit-reaction).

So I am done with this post now...because I am re-grossed out just thinking about the 'incident' and I am sure you are all just as grossed out...

I am off to go watch: Project Runway, The Vampire Diaries, and GREY'S-freakin-ANATOMY...yep you are right...I rock at life...

Hi, my name is Vanessa and I am a Psych major but will never dissect anything in my life. Ever. I skipped the day in HS when we had to dissect frogs in Bio. I refused. I haven't taken Bio psych yet but I am pretty positive we never dissect anything. I've heard it is a horrible class with an even worse professor who can't speak English well and goes off topic constantly. Awesome.

This story made me nauseous. I can NOT handle puke in any way shape or form from me or anyone else. It is my biggest fear. End of story.

Flippin' baseball was on last night instead of Vampire Diaries so I must catch up on that this weekend. I did watch Grey's. I miss George already.

Vanessa- yay! Another psych major! You don't have to dissect anything?!?! Now we probably won't be switching houses right? Because then you would have to go to college here and dissect...bummer! lol

Yes, puke is the nastiest thing ever! Vampire Diaries was good!! I miss George too...like a lot. Although I was a little disappointed with Grey's...I didn't cry as much as I was expecting!!

Jil & Bastina- She was trying to cut off some of the meninges on the brain and she clipped off part of the brain and it flicked into her mouth....yep sicknast! Such an unfortunate time to have such awesome aim...
