Calcium deficiency or personal idiocy?

A couple days after I came to school, I clipped my fingernails. (I remember, because I borrowed clippers off my roommate, and it took forever because they were very, very dull.) That was maybe the 4th or 5th of September. It is now the 21st. My fingernails are still short. I've barely been online (as you know) or on the computer since I got here, so it's not some function of typing time (although I do use my laptop to take notes in class, but I don't think that could account for it, do you?) I'm wondering if I'm starting to get a calcium deficiency. I've drunk maybe 3 glasses of milk since I've been here, due to that whole weird milk-in-a-bag thing. (I poured it myself the other day -- a big step forward. Next--taking the bag out of the fridge, cutting a hole in the corner and putting the bag in a pitcher. Shudder.) Can calcium deficiency do that to you? So quickly? Am I going to get scurvy osteoporosis? Wouldn't that be... Bill-like? Disturbing, to say the least. Maybe it's something in the water... or something in the water back home that does weird things to your fingernails? Wow, I'm totally grossed out now. I'm going to sleep (it's 4:00 and I have church at 11). I'll tell you tomorrow afternoon if I had any weird (or: illuminating) dreams about this.

Reading this over, I realise the truth of people's saying not to blog late at night. Bonfire, here I come!
