My husband and I were in the car together this morning, and at 8:22 am, he turned to me and said “Happy Anniversary.”  One year and three minutes ago, our lives irrevocably changed. This short exchange sums up almost every reason I love my husband.  He has this way of working small miracles.  He turned […]

I write a lot here about the silver linings of Katrina.  It is necessary to my outlook on life to find them; it is only the firm belief that when God closes one door that he opens another that can overcome the massive feeling of disorientation that the storm blew through my life.  Had we […]

I was having a really shitty morning – my pathology lab was giving me crap over our contract, which has stalled protocol development.  CRO’s.  There are so few, they pretty much have you by the cahones in contract matters. Anyway – so here I am feeling low and hating my job, when the phone rings […]

Pluto is not a planet. It is, however a dwarf. So we now have eight planets and lots of dwarves.  Astronomy conferences are starting to sound a lot like bedtime stories. Nice to know that those physical scientists are just as flaky as us life scientists.

Because Charlotte put the flames to my feet, I will have to confess.  I am responsible for the “Devil in the White City” debacle.  Honest, though, I did NOT deliberately put it first.  I ran the randomization twice and both times it came out on top.  I took it as a sign from God, but […]

We ALL worked on the garage this weekend: Luckily child labor is legal in a family business.  Next, he learns to run the vacuum.

We finally got a start on sorting the garage this weekend.  This meant some small tragedies, like letting go of a lot of the things that we “recovered” from Katrina.  There was hopeful thinking when we pulled things out of the wreckage that turned out to be denial, as we realized they ultimately had to […]

My little artist:  View This Video on Google Now that I have figured out how to embed video on my WordPress blog, the rest of you are not safe.  Prior to this, I confined myself to annoying MySpace with most of the exploits of my brilliant son, but now I will taint this blog as […]

Didn’t have a chance to get it out of the box (the ORIGINAL BOX, perfectly intact and repacked) last night.  Long story. Well, due to an increasing feeling of suckiness throughout the day (headache, queasy, light-sensitive and generally crappy), I didn’t do a whole lot of playing with the Futura.  I did open it up, […]
