Sus becoming a dull girl (and a picture!)

It's been pure work around here. And, mostly, it's been going well. I got my presentation done and, although my brain sort of switched off about three quarters of the way through, it went fairly well. It's over, anyway. I've accomplished a lot of work in the lab and am about ready to get my final results, which is always a little nerve-wracking, but it's only a rotation so if it doesn't work out I get to just go to the next one and not worry about it. That's the best deal I'll get for the rest of my life, I'm sure.

So, yeah. Not much to really blog about. But I did open my mailbox today and find a copy of the departmental grad student photo we posed for a month or so ago. These are the biology grad students, looking all happy because the stress of the year hadn't started yet and it was warm and still summer. Ah, memories.

We're a pretty good bunch. Don't we look like we could take over the world? ;)

PS -- check out that progress bar on the Fatigue Cap -- it's coming right along, I tell you!

Oh yeah, that fatigue cap...that's what I was hoping that was how you'd been spending your time *not* blogging.

Seriously, the stress of grad school is a bitch. Keep your chin up sugar.

You're just jealous because you aren't going to be the recipient of the fatigue cap's toasty goodness this winter. Ppffbbtt.

Such a clean, smart looking bunch of youngsters! (eeekgads! I'm turning into my Grandma. She's pretty cool though)
Nephew Brian continues to tease his girlfriend about the fact that shortly after Grandma met her this summer, she made the comment that she was, "such a beautiful young lady". Grandma doesn't think she has any wrinkles because her sight is so bad that she can't see herself in the mirror. Old age might not be such a bad thing after all......
