Goodbye Hedonism, Hello Diaper Genie….

Worth a Thousand Words… April 22, 2007

Filed under: baby,The Bee — nickihem @ 12:59 am

Things have been very busy lately and updating my blog hasn’t been at the top of the list, unfortunately. My businesses have been kicking ass the past couple of months and when I’m not chillin’ with The Bee or Ry, I’ve been working my little tail off… Working from home is not all it’s cracked up to be, I must say. The balance is a little difficult and although it’s great not having to shuttle my HoneyBee off to DayCare to chant Dora songs with strangers, maintaining a professional life one moment and changing a diaper the very next throws me off somewhat. But who am I to complain? Every mother I’ve talked to wishes she could telecommute so hey… I’ll just shut my yap about it and take it for what it is.

We’ve been looking forward to moving to Purdue. We secured our dream-dwelling; it’s right on the Wildcat Creek (which is the width and flowspeed of a river) with a huge deck that overlooks the water. The house itself is gorgeous; floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the woods and water, pretty hardwood floors, and lots of space. We have about an acre total and the prospect of having no neighbors, especially after living in urban areas for ten years, is so appealing. Then again, the other night Ry and I went out with our friends to this unheard-of little downtown restaurant and walked to a hip little bar and felt all chic and stuff…. I’m going to miss that sometimes. Maybe not… We’ll see…

So here’s some updated pics of the beautiful Bee. She’s going to be 6 months in a couple of weeks. It’s amazing. She’s started to babble and laugh out loud. I’m so in love…

    Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
