So. It's the weird lull boring time between Christmas and New Year's Eve, when the lab is running on fumes. Very few people are around, and those that are present aren't being terribly productive. I've done a few experiments; in fact, I just set up something that will take ~1.5 hours to finish. If I were very dedicated, I would stay until the experiment completed and then use the results from that experiment to set up a new experiment.

However, when it comes to this company "dedicated" does not enter my vocabulary. What to do?

As the current job is fairly brainless and uninspiring, and as broadening one's skillset tends to make one slightly more employable, I'm going to take some courses through UCSD's Extension Campus. The thing is, I'm having trouble choosing between bioinformatics classes and technical writing classes. To be clear, both areas are appealing to me. On one hand, there's the appeal of acquiring the tools needed to analyze complex gene expression data and learn nifty cool things about how biological systems work. On the other hand, I was a biochemistry major who accidentally (nearly) minored in English because I took lots of writing-intensive interdisciplinary courses. Because they were FUN. Hee!

Naturally, when faced with such a choice I take the scientific approach: Ticky Boxes!

ETA: Please comment with your rationale for choosing one or the other, I'm interested to hear what you have to say.

I'm debating whether I should work on my birthday. What do you guys think?

[Poll #481788]

ETA: I just asked Frenchie if I there was anything pressing happening tomorrow. She said no. Then I asked if could take tomorrow off; she blinked and said "Oh my gosh, it's your birthday tomorrow! Of course you can take it off." So yay, no work for me! :) I'll have to see which museums have new exhibits; or perhaps see if I can borrow a longboard from [livejournal.com profile] bobamster. Hmmm.

Also a reminder to local LJ peeps: beers and/or tasty food at Wit's End tomorrow at 7:30-ish. Hope to see you all there.

Bored now

I find it interesting that the majority of responders chose Maura Tierney. Fine, can't disagree with you; but I really don't think I should eat her while I'm at work.

*ba dum bum*

Thanks folks, I'll be here all week. Remember to tip your bartenders.

I have Oreo cookies in my lunch today. I want to eat them all right now but it's only 12:30. I might want them later, when I'm snacky. What do you think?

This morning I heard Kiss Them for Me by Siouxsie and the Banshees, a song which makes me unreasonably perky despite its rather morbid subject matter.

Are there any songs that cheer you up, even though on paper they shouldn't?

Fooled you!

This was going around a while ago. Four of the following statements are true, one is false. Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to pick the false statement.

2. Caldonia, what does make your big head so hard?

3. I make the best grilled cheese sandwiches. When people ask me for my secret (as they so often do) I tell them the secret is the bread. It's the truth, but they never believe me. So I still make the best grilled cheese.

4. I'd like more coffee.
