STIR THE BLOOD

i blogged about The Bravery before, but i would just like to elaborate that after a few dozen listens of Slow Poison on repeat, i decided to check the rest of the album.



Slow Poison is still my favorite and the most singable and dancable from the album, in my opinion. :D
I have seen the Future is another fun danceable song. sounds really electronic but not in a techno way. they say "it's a brave new world" and that's exactly what i'm thinking about as i listen to the album as a whole.
Hatefuck is my next favorite, i'm kind of picturing the garage rock counterpart to rhianna's S&M.
Sugar Pill is a slow down song. i really like this, i feel like listening to The Fatales (last album was Great Surround, in 2008, and it sounds different... i downloaded a free song from them before that called Ministry of Defense) after this song.

if you'd like to check out the rest of the album for yourself, here's a spotify link for the album. enjoy!

if you enjoyed The Bravery, I also recommend Stellastarr*, Von Bondies and Pulp. Here's a spotify playlist for those. :)

STILL DREAMING



i've got half a dozen posts that i have to publish! i usually write when i get home from work and lately, i'll start something and fall asleep at my computer! :P or i'll write something, have coffee and read the paper then go back to the post and uhhh... it doesn't make sense (actually more often it rambles on and on!). ahahahaa, tired minds do strange things. :)

better stop talking now, i'll let these pictures tell my story.
and i promise to publish all my crazy rants soon!

BOYS OF SUMMER ARE GONE

yummiestars and i left our boyfriends behind for a girl day. ^^
walked around waikiki and looked at makeup and clothes. ate at marukame udon (my first time, finally!!) was so yummy! i definitely want to go back and try the other broths and other fresh tempura. trés bon marche, too~ next time i will take pictures. great atmosphere and really efficient dining set up- i never went before because i'm so put off by the crazy lines.. but it goes by fast. :)
things that i saw today and liked:

delicious roller ball duo



lollia body powder



tokyomilk



cheap tanks



ok off to work!! *runs out the door*

PRODUCTIVITY

i thought i was going to be super busy crazy tired today but things went well.

took a nap when i got home from work and woke up just in time to catch the bus to lab meeting. alan conducted since dr. b is still vacationing (jealoussss) and it was short and very efficient! saw some of thomas and tamara's work on ELISAs looking goooood. also, got put in the hot seat with Ing for a little while trying to explain last week's campy invasion (we need to repeat it 8| ...with more precision) but it was good. makes you understand what you're doing. also, matt got a TON of new DNA pieces to futz with; the entire igem 2011 list, mwahahahaa... and he went through line by line because i mentioned some inserts we should do: yellow flourescent protein and blue flourescent protein (GFP mods) but they didn't come with promoters attached, ha! there might be promoters somewhere else on the plates but i have to look into it. anyway, he went through over 1000 entries looking for promoters or constructs and didn't find anything useful but he said we should try to get some info and transform them anyway! yey, another summer project i can work on. :)
after the meeting Ing and I made DMEM. it went well, less time consuming than making media, for sure. i thought i might end up staying until 4pm again, but since we don't have to heat anything or autoclave anything it was done quick.
caught the bus after that. i was planning to stop by the comic book store but passed up on it (third day in a row, uhggh... i'll get there soon) and just went home.
at home i finished up some more library books and i had a really great sandwich and a pear (don quijote has really sweet bartlets now, go get some!) and some cottage cheese and carrot juice and pepper chips. :3 something as simple as food can make me feel so happy!
after that, chores. dishes, laundry, etc. i like doing laundry. it's really stuffy indoors but my backyard/garage is really breezy. i just like to sit on the dryer and listen to Nirvana and practice card flourishes outside waiting for the laundry to finish.
tomorrow, hopefully i can squeeze in another bike ride before work.
as for now... a nap before work.

nothing like an accomplished day.

INSTANT TIME MACHINE!
