pretty much in love with this song.
can't wait for the cd to drop on oct. 6 !


Dream, little girl on Lonely Street
Little runaway girl
Do it again

Your boyfriend's mean
And your mom's a b!tch
Little runaway girl
Do it again

Run, run, runaway little girl and
Get your foot in this trashy world
Empty hearted bus by your side
Lick your lips and fuck suicide

Not tonight

You're all right for love
New York's the sh!t
Little runaway girl
Do it again

On the Brooklyn Bridge
You fix your stare
East River sleeps
Do it again




this is exciting!
there's this bacteria that eats glycerol we are thinking of getting...

Subject: quiz 2
To: Miss C., et. al 

Interestingly everyone received a 9/10 on the quiz.  Everyone wrote strong answers that were on target, I guess study guides are useful.  Each one of you had a few weak answers that were missing some information, or you were a little off base.  The most problematic question concerned the induction of GFP expression in pGlo.


Now, one biotech project that I'm throwing out there for any or all of you to address is the following:

-KCC cafe has triglycerides in their fryers

-Currently we mix this with KOH and methanol to cut the fatty acid tails free from the glycerol molecule

-the fatty acids tails are then used as biodiesel


1. Come up with a way using E. coli to use the leftover glycerol for something

2. Come up with a way to use E. coli to cut the fatty acids free, either in the bacterium or by pulling out an enzyme that will do it for us



This is a real-life problem that was posed to me yesterday.  Like you I am no expert in this but know that we might be able to use an organism to do this rather than chemicals.  If you can't think of a biotech project than feel free to attack this one.

oh. c shifted to the right cuz it was easier to check it when publishing to ion.
c: when you're pau with the publishing, can you put it back to left justified?
d: while c is processing, please live with the text being on the right.

Hey Shari,

What happened to NPH Photo Index M, N, P, etc. metadata??? Everything is aligned to a freaky right side! I tried to correct it from my side by the justification button but it wouldn't accept it.

Que pasta?



Please vote!  Hawaii is in 1st place now, help us keep the top spot until September 30th, when voting ends!  We want Hawaii to win 50,000 books for our keiki!

I voted for Under the Blood Red Sun by Graham Salisbury. :)


maybe you've heard about this incident on the news?
this is an excellent piece of music with the lyrics being the actual transcripts of the Mike Duvall conversation.


In 1989, the journal Science named Taq polymerase Molecule of the Year.

lol.  didn't know there was such a thing!
studying now, going to #tweeball at 3 (followed by #injurytweetup, lol) and then... 


here's my work desktop, not sure if i posted this before.
i have two monitors.  and i like the minimalism.
i'm using rainmeter and rainlendar on my desktop.

i originally posted a pic with my desktop rainlendar showing 11:11am 11 september and i liked the coincidence of it.  but i had to delete it because my gmail was open and my address (but none of yours) was sprawled all over the screen.  also, the state (read: mess) of my inbox is not presentable. so this post was a follow up showing what the regular desktop looks like.


I've been buying bottled milk tea (by the litre) from don qixote. So
goooood! After a lovely twelve hour school day, thrice a week (not),
coming home to my soft bed and cold tea (although I admit I enjoy warm
beverages more) is bliss.
I also wonder if I'm attached to this ritual in lack of hot coffee
(which I still have in the morning).
I must be rambling now, I'm not even going to proof read this before
submitting- I am très fatigué- brain going offline........


found this on the dining room table when i came home:

this is how my family communicates-
by post-its. :'D


Here's what i'm planning to work on this semester.
it's an informal "artist's statement" for the class that i'm not in. (time conflict, special permission)

ART 207
Fall 2009

This semester I will be working on photos of nature: plants, landscape, and other natural life. I want to work on two projects (1) juxtaposing nature with man made and (2) how science interacts/interferes with natural life.*
I am going to be using 35mm film (Ilford HP5 and Kodak Plus-X) in Canon Al-1 with a variety of lens, mostly macro. I will print on Ilford Pearl paper and will have a minimum of eight photos for the first project and four for the second project for the final critique.

* At work, I spend a lot of time prepping photos for (I didn't take the pictures, I just size them for web and work on the metadata) and it makes me want to go out and shoot more plants! That's why I chose this project. Also, for my school work, I'm in the lab all the time and see really neat things! I'm going to see if i can take pictures of cells or bacteria with the microscope camera to go along with regular shots. It makes very interesting patterns and colors. I think it matches with my first idea because it blows my mind when we use/waste so much glass and plastic to make things grow when it doesn't need anything to grow in the natural world!
