RE: Onyx scrabble board

i suppose you only buy one scrabble board in a lifetime. might as well go for the sexiest one!
thanks, adarkprecursor, i will def check it out!


film to develop, math homework to figure out, father's day gift, vacuuming and sterilizing the house.
QA/QC readings for micro, more dreamweaver templates for work, make spaghetti for dinner.
somewhere in there i wanted to go swimming.

shopping list (long and short term):
XS gloves
grosgrain ribbon
power supply for my broken PC
clinical review books

listening to PUNK-O-RAMA 10 now. my preffered CDs are in dad's car. :(

my dad's picture in the paper for prince court:

ok, that's it for now.


- streaking for isolation techniques
- difference between a fume hood and a laminal flow hood
- how to make and pour 2% agarose gel
- sinaloa brand tortillas contain a GMO product (probably the corn)!
- but cheese nips and nature valley bars are ok
- i probably have the PTC tasting gene (we'll have the dna confirmation on thurs or fri...)

can't wait to see how my Staph, Strep, E. coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosis grew up! hope i have lots of nice happy colonies.


i love when little things fall into place.
sharla and christine renewed their offer to let me play around with them in the micro lab this summer. so i changed my work schedule around a little bit.  actually, before that, i found out that times for mlt107 is different than what's listed in the soc.  we don't have class on wednesdaaaaaaaays!  so i'm taking off m and tues to do some micro and working all day on weds to make up for it!  since there's no class today (it's weds) i wanted to get up to speed on the micr stuff.  i wasn't sure if i could ask for a day off work (short notice = makes me feel guilty even though i don't technically work for ccc any more... i just answer the phone because i happen to have my desk in the front...) but mary asked me as soon as i got in yesterday if i wanted to work at home- they are waxing the office floors today!  so everything turned out fine!
i'm outside kauila now, waiting for my loveli ladies to show up.  i guess i get to learn the process of pcr today? :)
oh, and just for the record, i actually work at home when i say i will work from home... that's right, i got up at my normal time and was working on my dreamweaver template project outside of the science building since 8am. (unlike some of my coworkers who don't work even when they are in office... playing bejeweld all day... or what ever. pshhh.)  it's too bad my office can't be outdoors all the time!  it's freezing in naio!
Kisses on bruises and pink lips from salty water. C'est la vie.


Your life is filled with study, perhaps not formally, though. You're
always observing, tinkering and gaining insight to how things work.
Today, even when you seem idle, you're working out a solution.


gladiator sandals
peep toe boots
shorts/skirts that have visible pocket lining from the bottom
panty hose with holes
black panty hose with light colored outfits (unless it's a completely black and white outfit and well balanced)
oversized shirts and no pants
button down shirts with white collars and cuffs (unless the entire shirt is plain white)
shirts with pockets right over the boobs
fake tans (don't pretend. i can tell.)
crocs (ok in your garden. no ok with your nice jeans and LV purse.)
untied shoelaces
teeny tiny vests over long shirts
ties without a collared shirt

don't take it personally;
it's not you, it's the clothes.

they fascinate me.
as does everything cultural about the 1930s and 40s.

every so often i log into gaia and see if i have any new messages.
and i usually do!
but they're only notifications of birthdays (which i've missed) and NPC messages.


or more like, "in the corner of my screen".
i watch twitterfox while at work since i'm online all the time; it updates every few minutes.
and @andybumatai says some wild stuff throughout the day.

RT @thehawaiitrader @andybumatai: tell me a joke. AB: the economy.


first time defragging my external hd in a month.

that's what i like to see- no white lines! <3 blues!

damn, i hate when i need to restart my computer but i'm jamming at work!
i have the whole system set up where i just tab through all my fields and alt tab through all my apps and move my excel stuff to the database like there's no tomorrow and then i see this:

and then the ocd in me kicks in and i have to restart my computer to try to make it go away! and just looking at it makes me lose my place and then i can't remember what field i was in...

i'm going to attempt to ignore this.

dead pixels must die!


passed everything!

now just one more semester of hellllllll


i was eating a box of cracker jacks today.  there's no toys inside anymore.  but there is a nonedible "prize" inside. it's a paper that says "FUN FACT: a typical pensicl can write 45,000 words or draw a line 35 miles long!"

i guess that's just as awesome as a toy.


"If you're attractive enough on the outside, people will forgive you for being irritating to the core."


once, i developed a D76 roll in C41 and got back a blank roll.
i still think about it today.


Not as fast as we used to. A friend of mine, who went to college at MIT around 1980, had a classmate who was the son of an undertaker. His dad had told him that when he (the dad) had entered the business, you had to work fast. Bodies would start to smell quickly. But now — around 1980 — that was no longer necessary. You could wait a lot longer before they smelled bad.

Which I take to mean that around 1980 the average old person, where this classmate came from, had a lot less bacteria in their body than around 1960. All that concern about "the safety of the food supply" — preservatives, yes, but also sterilization, freezing, sell-by dates, food handling rules, food safety officers, and microwave food — seems to have had an effect. From 1960 to 1980 there was a big shift from homemade food to factory-made and restaurant-made food. The uniformity of the new food caused the obesity epidemic, I believe; its sterility  caused a great increase in allergies and asthma, not to mention a bunch of other disorders.
Speaking of sell-by dates, at a Japanese grocery store recently I wanted to buy some Yakult. At check-out, it was pointed out to me that it was one day past its sell-by date. Half price. I bought two.

Original post:


nothing more amazing than nicole atkins.
after i lost all my music on MISTER V this was the first song i bought from itunes.
she sounds so good live.
this is my favorite song by her, i've been trying to find a video of this to post for ages. :)


i always look at for earrings.  they have an amazing selection of jewelry and super good prices and super super good service.  i highly recommend them and am going to be a customer for life!
alas, every time i look i want more ear holes.
of course, i need more ear holes like i need a hole in my head.
i am so tempted to just get it done... like, after paintball or something (thinking about jamming my head into the helmet... not very cool for ears)... i could get a conch or helix or industrial... or just a lower cartilage.
i'm like... dying to get something done.... i didn't get anything new in several years!
is that crazy?


my arms are not happy.
i will never make fun of people with carpal tunnel again.
it's this computer desk that's ruining me, i swear.
the table and monitors are all the wrong heights....

not much of a summer, might i add, since i have two classes and will be working also.
but summer, nonetheless!
last final finished yesterday!
beaching this weekend
paintball next weekend
and no homework for a week!

after micr final i talked to johnb about continuing in micro.  he said it's a great idea and even invited me to work on some research during the summer (he calls it the "campy story"as in Campylobacter Research.  heh... ) with christine.  so i'm pretty excited about that, too.  i might take some days off work during the summer to help out in the lab. :)

and today, finally, i installed addtorun (from a post last week) and it's fantastic!  i love never having to leave my keyboard (for my mouse, that is!)  i might even ditch my mouse gestures (i'm using stroke-it)!
(i really REALLY can't live without stroke it.  i am mouse gesture dependent already.  i always go on other people's computers and try to do mouse gestures and of course nothing happens but it keep trying thinking it will...)
here's to a happy day, i hope!
i just feel happy already, thinking about summertime!

i always associate feeling happy with this video-
something about dancing in the supermarket just seems so... crazy!


Jeff (an EMT): is still in West Maui and bored - help!

Rotten office fridge cleanup sends 7 to hospital

SAN JOSE, Calif. – An office worker cleaning a fridge full of rotten food created a smell so noxious that it sent seven co-workers to the hospital and made many others ill.

Firefighters had to evacuate the AT&T building in downtown San Jose on Tuesday after the fumes led someone to call 911. A hazmat team was called in.

What crews found was an unplugged refrigerator crammed with moldy food.

Authorities say an enterprising office worker had decided to clean it out, placing the food in a conference room while using two cleaning chemicals to scrub down the mess.

The mixture of old lunches and disinfectant caused 28 people to need treatment for vomiting and nausea.

Authorities say the worker who cleaned the fridge didn't need treatment — she can't smell because of allergies.


why i need two monitors:


CA: open up one of the spreadsheets
it's an inventory list of the nurseries
then you add a column to the list call it "plant ID" or something
you go into the database (nphstaging) and you click on SQL
and you type: select * from plants where genus like '%<genus>%'
where <genus> is the genus you're looking for (can be part of name only)
then a list of those plants will show up and you put the plant ID number on that row
Miss C: ok
CA: if no plant ID, start a list that says the nursery and which plant is missing
can be just a text file
Miss C: ok
CA: when you're done with the spreadsheet, copy it and delete any empty rows and the only column i need is the plant ID column
i just need to know which nursery it is via the file name or something
Miss C: ok
CA: but send me the original with the plantID column too in case we ever have to back track and check something
all make sense?
Miss C: ok
i'll get back to you when i'm done.
Sent at 11:54 AM on Monday
CA: watch this video
might help you:
erm once it's uploaded
has all three cases - no such plant, find exactly that plant, and if there's only genus
highlight the only genus thing yellow
we'll send it to dave to see if we should include it or not
DONT include in the plant IDs you send me for each nursery (separate of original spreadsheet + plant ids)
Miss C: ok
CA: native nursery and yardcore are most important. i already have something for hui, so that can wait another day if you can't finish it
there's the screencast
thanks so much, this is a huge help
Miss C: ok
Sent at 12:00 PM on Monday

since we are talking about plants...


$169 worth of strawberries to be exact!
Prince court called my dad this morning- said they forgot to order
strawberries for mothers day. Which is today. And there are 2000
So he went to costco and bought strawberries. Craziness!
Other things we've done for prince court include: buying a chocolate
fountain, finding a frying strainer, bringing rosemary from our yard...
But it's worth it. For the hot coffee. :)


i learned that the sneezing mechanism also takes place when you need to close your eyes; you can't sneeze with your eyes open.
that's why people say to look up when you have to sneeze.  it actually means to look at the sun.  you'll then have to sneeze because you need to close your eyes.
today i'm working on photo restoration for the hawaii memory project:
and i have to turn up the brightness on my screen.  since i look at the computer for several hours a day i have to turn the brightness down so i don't get a headache.  my left monitor (main) is at 17% beightness and my right (smaller thin client) is at 40% since it's already darker/funky colored.
anyway, i have to turn it up to work in ps to get a better idea of how other people will see it.
and i've been sneezing like crazy!
i swear- it's because the screen is waaaaaay to bright.
and now that i think about it, i sneeze a lot in microscopy, too.  i always thought it was because of the smell of the fluids or the microscope is dusty.  but now i wonder...


Yo mama’s so old, she refers to Century as Futura.

Yo momma’s so skinny the kids call her Stick Ultra Light Condensed.

How many art directors does it take to change a lightbulb?
Does it have to be a lightbulb?

How many typesetters does it take to screw in a light bulb?
One, but you have to specify how tight you want it.

You got a A for the class. The students really liked having you in the class, they said you really helped them out. Have a good summer.



this guy is awesome. he makes super good game vids because he has some humor but is great at explaining stuff.
this is his recorded rant about how steam update made chrome mess up.
i love this because he is so irritated and just wants to know why. WHYYYYY. whyyyyyy doesn't it work!?
i totally get like this sometimes- everybody is like this sometimes.
so relatable!

AddToRun Adds Aliases to the Windows Run Box [Downloads]

OMG! i'm downloading this to my work computer tomorrow!
i win+r EVERYTHING! i LOVE keyboard shortcuts! i get so mad when i can't open google talk, spybot, kompozer, etc. from the run box! i open almost everything else from there. in case you're interested, some programs you can open from win+r :
winword = ms word
powerpnt = ms powerpoint
excel = ms excel
calc = calculator
iexplore = internet explorer
notepad++ (this is not a normal windows app. you have to dl it. i highly recommend it!)

hmmm, can't think of anything else right now.
hope you take advantage of this shortcut!

(on a mac, you can press apple+space bar to open spotlight and then type anything... even file names, etc. but you knew that already...)

Windows only: Portable utility AddToRun adds custom aliases to more easily launch applications using the Windows run box.

Using the utility is fairly self-explanatory—simply select an application, assign a custom alias, and use the Add button to add the alias to the registry. Once you've done this, you can use the alias in the Windows run box to launch the application, or if you are using Windows Vista it will also show up at the top of the start menu search results—a very useful feature. Readers using Windows Vista should note that you need to run the application as administrator for it to work properly.

AddToRun is free and open source, available for Windows only. For more, check out how to add the Run command to Launchy.

Sit Up Straight; the Auto-Ban is Here [Announcements]

LOL! go lifehacker! bring on the iron fist!


Sent to you by C. via Google Reader:


via Lifehacker by Adam Pash on 5/5/09

Our commenters are some of the best on the 'net, and we love each and everyone of you, but sometimes you can be a real pain. Starting today, we're polishing our banhammer and getting strict.

Photo source: jurek d..

We've already told you how not to get banned from commenting, and while those rules still apply, recent overall comment quality has deteriorated enough that we're going to start instituting a stricter set of rules that, when broken, will get you banned immediately.

Before we go any further, I want to emphasize one thing: If you're banned from Lifehacker, you can always register for a new account and audition for commenting privileges again. The new auto-ban rules I've laid out below may seem harsh, but their aim is to make a better Lifehacker for all of us, and this is a goal we're very serious about. So, without further ado, you will be automatically banned from commenting on Lifehacker if you're guilty of any of the following commenting offenses:


While we genuinely appreciate the enthusiasm for the site that's behind your uncontrollable urge to announce yourself as the first, second, third, etc. commenter on a post, this is a major no-no. Do it and you'll be banned swiftly, regardless of whether or not you've said something worthwhile in the comment. It's not useful, and it pushes down quality, worthwhile comments.

Offensive and/or Hateful Comments

We have a complete zero-tolerance stance on hateful comments. We've said it before, but it bears repeating in this post: Hateful remarks against any person, group, or creed will result in a quick ban.

Excessive Self-Promotion/Spam

We don't allow users to link to personal sites in their signature (in fact, signatures in general are discouraged), and we don't allow any self-promoting links without disclosure. If you're including a personal link in the comments of a post, let us know that it's something that you wrote, a picture you took, etc. Even with disclosure, some comments are clearly spam and will be treated as such, but we're happy to have readers include their expertise in the comments. Just make sure that what you're including is actually useful and relevant to the post.

Commenting Without Reading the Post

Far too often, commenters will angrily accuse us of being fools for posting about X when it doesn't do Y. If said commenter had read the post, he/she would have seen that not only did we acknowledge the issue in question, we explained in detail why that doesn't matter, how to make it work, or what can do Y.

Installing Windows/OS X/Linux is the Solution to Your Problems with Windows/OS X/Linux

It was probably very clever the first time someone suggested installing Linux as the solution to Windows complaints (swap out any other incarnation of the Windows/OS X/Linux matrix), but it's not helpful, and it's really not all that clever when you say it.

"Correcting" Our Grammar (like a Jerk)

We write a lot of posts every day at Lifehacker; we make mistakes. These mistakes are called typos, and 99% of the time, they're due to the pressure of writing hundreds of posts every week without a net and without any sort of copy editor. These mistakes are not due to a lack of understanding of the English language. We love it when readers help us out by pointing out a typo (email is preferable), and we want to keep Lifehacker as squeaky clean as possible, but do us all a favor: point out the typo, but skip the condescending grammar lesson.

This is an incomplete list that we'll be updating over time, but it's a start. We don't love being the strict schoolmaster, but we're doing it out of love. Help us make Lifehacker a better place for everyone.


Things you can do from here:



No school or work today!
Woke up leisurely at 8am.
Checked email and studied immunology.
Got dolled up and went to kcc.
Studied some more.
Met up with Ms. 12e- she's doing a tshirt surgery and wanted some ideas.
Registered for CPR renewal.
Ran into an old friend, she's moving back to France. :( I'll miss her
but wish her well.
Walked to kahala mall. Quite a trek! But good exercise since I didn't
get to swim last week. Got some bad blisters, too.
Met the birthday girl, had some cake and coffee and did a little
shopping. :)
Went to walmart.
Heard "zero" by the yeah yeah yeahs on the radio.
Went to Ross and bought a pair of pants.
I like being out- nice to have company. No matter the activity, i just
do it for the laughs and good times.
I'm on the bus now, soon i'll be home and back to reality.
Leftovers and more studying tonight, I guess.


i don't have class tomorrow.
i don't work tomorrow, either.
yet i will be taking a jaunt to kcc.
a one hour journey on the bus with my backpack and books and sandwich and coffee.
kcc is like my second home... spend waaaaay too much [voluntary] time there.
i'm 100000000000000x more productive when i'm at school-
free air conditioning, free electricity, free internet...
and no distractions like food and tv!
so off i go!
my goal is to review 4 chapters of immunology.
i should be studying for mlt first since my exam is on monday
but i have no idea what to study.
the class is really messed up... barely covered anything and barely learned anything.
it's like that one time i took math at maryknoll in the summer. i didn't learn anything besides how to properly use a graphing calculator. in clin chem, i learned how to use the spectrophotometer (turn it on, set wavelength, read soln). oh yeah... $200 worth of education fo sho! o______o
i miss drawing blood. i'd love to be a phlebotomist forever!
they only get paid peanuts but boy, it's a lot less stressful!
i don't really know where i'm going with this so i'll just stop talking already.
until tomorrow!

FWD: First COLOR HPLC Column sold in the world!


We have just sold our first COLOR HPLC Column!

Yes, that's right - it's an Orange Ion Exchange DEAE-Column 5 um particle size, 100Å pore size, 150 mm long with a 4.6 mm Inner Diameter.

The new COLOR HPLC Columns are being offered with a wide variety of sizes and packings, from C8 and C18 silica to methyl, ethyl, butyl, phenyl, and triacontyl.

Think about it - no more standing around with a bunch of columns that look exactly alike wondering, "which one of these is the C18 and which one is the C8?"

that last sentence made me LOL; it's so serious!  how many times a day do YOU ask yourself this? 
more labs should be exciting and colorful, not just gray. :)  now... i would LOVE to have a cute, bubblegum pink eppendorf...


sorry for my pun!
couldn't help it!
