You know, actually being single is way less fun than fantasizing about being single.

Living single was a sitcom starring Tootie.

It's been a really interesting couple of weeks. I shall do my best to summarize.

I went in for an upper endoscopy. They sedated me and put a camera down my esophagus, through my stomach, and into my duodenum (the first part of the small intestine). Basically they were trying to figure out the cause of my heartburn and make sure there was no...

I did not see The Lookout, but it's on "the list."

It's kinda amazing how Gordon-Levitt went from annoying sitcom actor to really interesting actor.

OK. Seriously. I've long since resigned myself to the realization that this is not the most perfect of all possible worlds. I have now, however, decided that this is the most ridiculous of all possible worlds.

A few months back when Seattle was in the middle of some "severe" weather, I was walking across a bridge over Interstate-5. The sidewalk was covered by a...

So, hey, how's that West coast treating you?
signalnoise:
The Seattle area sounds really nice. I've been to Portland, and I looooove it. I consider it, along with Madison and Chicago, one of the places I'd like to end up.

Got me a nice new pair of slacks this weekend. They're being tailored right nowm, so I can't show you. I've kind of been on a shopping spree for the last week or so. Shoes (athletic), books (fiction), CD's (classical), slacks (cashmere), iPod (shuffle), pencils (drawing). I really need to slow down. I just paid off my credit cards, and the...

i will say, that when i'm depressed, i only listen to music that allows me to wallow in my sadness. i think i listened to more elliott smith than any human actually should. now i'm trying to listen to more pop, because even if the lyrics are sad, it sounds happy. next will probably be hardcore. it's almost like the stages of grief?
and i'm really sorry to hear about your relationship. i know how tough a break up after that long is.

for the record, i HATE the black eyed peas. wink

Here's a few things I didn't know this time last year:

The French word for labor strike is "greve." I found that out the hard way.

There's only one "l" in "syphilis." I found that out the easy way, thank goodness.

Strippers smell like rose water and baby oil. I found that out the smutty way.

The best doughnuts in Seattle are...

Outstanding as of late.
Hows Seattle treating you? I almost moved out there before I moved to the twin cities

Well damn!

It's been a long time since I've been around. Perhaps a brief explanation for my conspicuous absence: none of your business.

Point is, I'm back. I'm a little unsure about being back, but I am. It's 2007, and I've decided to be really optimistic about that.

Argh! Craziness. I've been packing up and trying to get going. Leaving for Seattle on Wednesday. That's where I'll be for a couple years. I won't be here much, at least for a little while.

She's an easy lover. She'll get a hold on you--believe it!
Like no other. Before you know it, you'll be on your knees.

I'm going to New York for a wedding this weekend. Should be a real hoot. Hope you guys have a good weekend too.

Ah, I missed your whole NYC trip.

And yeah, I'm not sure why I was thinking that you were going to Arizaon instead of Washington. Slip on my part I guess.

I'm really just immersed in lab work right now. I had a meeting with my PIs a few weeks ago where we went over everything that I have so far and tried to come up with a list of everything I'll need to make a convincing case for my committee to let me graduate. I'm just trying to check things off the list, but as I'm sure you know there are a ton of diversions along the way, and many experiments don't turn out the you thought they might. I think I need to really just keep banging away at things and hopefully by January or so I'll have a better idea of whether my committes it really going to let me go.

I'm not even that eager to leave the lab, and in fact will probably stay on here as a postdoc for a little while after I finish just to wrap up a bunch of things and get another paper or so before moving on. I'm really just tired of being a student, of having everyone constantly ask me when I'll be finished, and of being pretty much broke all the time. I'd really like that to be over. As I'm sure you can understand.
