He was throwing up this morning too....

Ack! Substance P rears its ugly head yet again....Is there no end to this polypeptide proliferation?! :o

HowEVah! One pesky polypeptide, particulary difficult to differentiate from substance Z, was so strikingly similar, it became known as Pseudo-Z ( :o:lol: ! )

Pseudo-Z! What a fantastic moniker! Said very quickly, it sounds vaguely Asian...Japanese or Indonesian. SO exotic--it's your new name, Susie.

Hey, take it up w/ the receptionist at that lab decades ago. ^_^

Things have changed.

Geek chic c'est de rigueur. (if that's incorrect usage, my story is - I just like the way it sounds - and I'm a'stickin' to it.)

You guys better watch out . . . someone's gonna report you for talkin' dirty? . . . kinky? . . . nerdy! Yep, that's the one!

big hairy experiment today. will only be checking for humor

So Jess, how did the big hairy experiment go? You know, that phrasing makes me think you're experimenting on the Yeti. You're not making him run through a maze with electrodes on his head are you?

Big genetic association study. Many experiments over two months. I won't know until the end of January or so how things went (although I know I didn't drop anything, miscount anything, etc). I missed my ferry so I'm hanging out trying to figure out some badly instructed free program for doing said association studies once I have all the data.

Maybe if the yeti brings in all his friends we can find out which genes are associated with being tall and hairy.

(Maybe some of y'all or your spouses can come too....)

I had to share this one

THE GOOD NAPKINS... ahhhhh... the joys of having Girls...

>

> My mother taught me to read when I was four years old (her first mistake). One day, I was in the bathroom and noticed one of the cabinet doors was ajar.

>

> I read the box in the cabinet. I then asked my mother why she was keeping 'napkins' in the bathroom. Didn't they belong in the kitchen?

>

> Not wanting to burden me with unnecessary facts, she told me that those were for 'special occasions' (her second mistake).

>

> Now fast forward a few months. ... It's Thanksgiving Day, and my folks are leaving to pick up my uncle and his wife for dinner. Mom had assignments for all of us while they were gone.

>

> Mine was to set the table.

>

> When they returned, my uncle came in first and immediately burst into laughter. Next came his wife who gasped, then began giggling. Next came my father, who roared with laughter.

>

> Then came Mom, who almost died of embarrassment when she saw each place setting on the table with a 'special occasion' Kotex napkin at each plate, with the fork carefully arranged on top. I had even tucked the little tail in so they didn't hang off the edge!!

>

> My mother asked me why I used these and, of course, my response sent the other adults into further fits of laughter.

>

> 'But, Mom, you said they were for special occasions!!!'

Joke combining a 'callback' w/ Breast Augmentation? ....check

:huh: whaaaaat? I don't get it.........

callback - - did you mean climbing rack? Dude, that's REALLY what they're called! The sling upon which you hang all your equipment is called a RACK..............yup, go wherever you want with it..............I don't got no stinkin' rack of any kind no more

:huh:

Mornin, Silleez!

:o (Apologies to Emily and who(m)ever else) MY BAD!!! :rolleyes:

Ptaum....why are you apologizing to me? :huh: I've missed something significant! Are you apologizing because I "don't got no stinkin' rack no more" either? (Thank you, Pseudo-Z...a line infinitely quotable!)... :lol:

Or perhaps you are apologizing for saying my bad. For this, I shall forgive you. However, if you were a diplomat, you'd be printing it eighty times across the blackboard...AND you'd have a quiet time! :o:D

Incidentally, Tom, I'm relieved to see your new, sophisticated disguise. The last chicken suit obviously failed to hide your identity, as Janet easily picked up our clandestine cyberchatter....No one will know who I'm dallying with, now. :rolleyes::lol: Incredible work...you've done PI work before, haven't you?

Hello everyone! I'm not dead! :o

It's the last full week of school, and I'm going absolutely INSANE.

1 paper

5 article reviews (yay for empirical articles in Psychology journals...NOT)

1 test today (easy, thank God)

3 tests next week

GAAAAAAA :blink::blink::blink:

I'll be back in full swing by the end of next week. I would make a pun out of that, but my brain is shot.

Change blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything. Creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild.

Well, I'm afraid that when <SOMEONE> put all those shells into the yeti's hair <SOMEONE> used a metallic glue which apparently hasn't washed out.

Once the yeti started through the maze and started sweating, the metal bits in his hair reacted with the metal electrodes. He's fine - no need to worry - he'll just be having a bad hair day for quite some time....

The maze, unfortunately, did not fare so well.

The sparks from the electrodes ignited the walls which smoked, more than they burned and set of the sprinkler system. The water put out the flaming yeti, but made the floor very slippery. As everyone ran for the exit, the yeti slipped on the floor, slid into the wall (taking out a whole row of fleeing scientist who actually became airborne from the force of the impact and were flung into the corners of the lab) and smashed through the wall into the monitoring room.

Well, if you've ever smelled a wet, smoldering yeti you'll understand why that room emptied almost immediately as well. Unfortunately, being full of scientists, they all forgot that they were actually connected to the monitoring panel by headsets and microphones and an assortment of wires. As they ran for the door they created a web of wires which they yeti ran into, and through.

As he ran through the hallway leaving a trail of smoke and stinking wet fur on the walls he dragged the bevy of scientists along by their headsets, their wires tangled around his left leg. He managed to shake them off and ran out into the night.

I haven't seen him since, but someone said they thought they heard him muttering something that sounded like "dingos".
