December 2009


My final few DHWs seem to have gotten lost in the ether, so you’ll have to pardon that until I have time to fix it (post-finals). In the meantime, here’s a bit of something I did as a biochem study break. The people and associated beings are from Gunnerkrigg Court, which I highly recommend.

Today was the last day of our biweekly classes for the term, resulting in much sadness and a fair amount of verbal hilarity. To whit:

“Oops, sorry. I’ll try not to smack you with this body.”

followed by

“I’m sure I’m going to kick one of you guys with this.”

and, shortly,

“After a while you get this weird craving for jerky.”

-Joe, TA

Then we had our final immunology lecture:

“All three of them had a little more self esteem than they needed to function in the world.”
-Dr. Hanson

“Self esteem is something that happens around my ankles.”
-yours truly

Also, today should have been my cousin’s 22nd birthday. So, happy birthday, Ben.
