So Awesome

I sent my parents my prelim, you know, for fun...

Thanks, for sharing. We did read some of it, until we felt totally lost. It's so awesome to us how someone knows and writes about all this stuff. Needless to say we're quite proud!!! Dad after whipping thru and understanding all 14 pages, has already approved it.

Spindleriffic Ride

Yesterday the critical mass ride route went to Berwyn, IL to save the spindle! You can totally see the spindle in the middle of the plaza on the gmap satellite. It was mucho fun, and we got to eat at Ixtapa which had delicious mexican food!

Crazy In Love

I love my advisor.
Only she could go through my 47th draft of prelim and write hundreds of comments like:

"Is the band reaL?? Shouldn’t it be more robust?? Can you really work with something so weak??? ALL THESE ISSUES MUST BE ADDRESSED"

This is exactly the kind of tough love I need. :)

Absolutely Yes

Deborah Cox has a new JAZZ CD out, which of course I heard about on News&Notes hehe.
It's actually really really good, especially for a Saturday afternoon of working outdoors. Who knew!

Rainbow Umbrella

The hot gay trend at Roscoe's last night was singing along, loudly, to the "Hey hey hey" part of Umbrella, you know, after she sings "Umbrella ella ella."

Hi Scott,

How is your writing going? We all miss you in the lab.

I wonder- can you stop by tomorrow so that we can go to see the mice?

[Miss] Sherrel told me to tell you that she wants you. It was last Thursday at the Preview's almost over party. At first she told me to tell you she said hi, and then she decided to tell you she wanted you instead! Naughty, naughty.

How things can go wrong?

Lili: I have no bands!
Me: Want one of mine? I have contamination.
Lili: Hehehe!
Lili: I was so embarrassed!
Me: Why?
Lili: I go to take picture of my gel! And the Smeagol guy is behind me!
Me: What?
Lili: The Smeagol guy! He has the big eyes!
Bob: Like Gollum...
Me: Oh!
Lili: He stand behind me, and he look at all of my lanes! They are empty!
Me: And you were embarrassed?
Lili: I had nothing there!
Bob: I guess your reaction didn't work.
Lili: *sighs* How things can go wrong?



Lili: Today is Friday the 13th?
Me: Yes
Lili: 13...that is number which is not lucky
Me: Yup
Lili: But it is July
Me: Ok?
Lili: July is 7. 7 is lucky number!
Me: Right
Lili: So what does that mean?
Me: Um?
Lili: You have the lucky and the unlucky?
Me: You know Lili, that's a really good question!
