this week, i've been so productive!
i've biked everyday. short rides but with good company. :) yummiestars started riding with me, borrowing twinkies' bike. we usually go up to booth park and back. she now has her own bike and more bikeventures are soon to come.
i finished a bunch of comics. a bunch from the library (DID YOU KNOW BRAD MELTZER WROTE MORE COMICS BESIDES IDENTITY CRISIS?! zomg, Tornado's Path was really well done, please pick it up if you enjoy justice league!) and also catching up on the new 52. and all i have to say is ZOMGGGGGG batman #10 !!!!!!!! i was reading it on my coffee break at work and i was like "WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT THE F?!!!!!" what a shocker about Lincoln March! and of course it ends in a cliff hanger. T____T can't wait to see how it goes down.
as much as i wanted to love justice league dark, i was getting lost in the story when it started off- so many characters and a complicated story. i still don't really understand how the vampire crossover ended. but the new arc (start w/9) is getting me so excited!! i am absolutely in love with house of mystery! (re: cain and doctor occult)
i think constantine is a great main character for this series- you never know when to trust him or not! the rest of the crew is equally secretive and it really throws a curve ball when you think you know what's going on.
i also set up a gentamycin/campy growth curve by myself. also made 2 litres of TSA for the lab. i went to the lab 4 times this week. yup, pretty much live in labs. but it's ok, it's nice there.
i went to a 4th of July barbecue (not held on 4th of July, i was working) with le boyfriend. had so much fun playing wii! also had fun with le boyfriend watching abe lincoln, vampire hunter! it was pretty cool. i KNEW the presidents had more secrets than they let on.
i watched three movies from the library this week. i have to go to bed soon so i will talk about MOON, Everything is Illuminated, and Super 8 next post. ;)
ok, continuing my productive theme, i will do the friday five on a friday! woo hoo!
the theme is disposable. feel free to answer them for yourself or peruse others' answers: http://f.riday5.com/?p=655
What’s something whose disposable version has replaced its non-disposable version in your regular use?
can't survive w/o wooden chopsticks. we use so much. use it at almost every meal. a small forest dies every year for my family because we are addicted to dispo chopsticks.
What disposable item do you almost never use because you greatly prefer the non-disposable version?
coffee cups. i don't like paper coffee cups. i like ceramic mugs. they are warm and weighty and look nice and are good to hold. my house has a lot of mugs. we all share mugs but i have three that i normally use; a vespa mug, an iron chef mug, or diamond bakery mug. i also have a little red riding hood mug that i use for tea only. i like reusable cups in general.
however, i would like to make it a point that i disapprove of these reusable cups:
HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO WASH THE INSIDE OF THE STRAW?
i do not approve. >:U
If they could somehow create a disposable version of something that (as far as you know) is currently not available in that format, what would you like to see?
sort of along the lines of disposable, i wish there were "single-serving" lip balm and lip stick. i dislike something touching your face and then getting put back in the "stock solution" to incubate whatever normal flora was on your body then putting it back on your face later. do i sound like a scientist or what? haha. make up should be put on and used up or thrown away. for example, when i'm sick, if i use a certain lip balm, straight from the tube i throw it away. trying not to be wasteful, i often use q-tips to apply make up and never double dip. :) besides sample size, i don't think make up regularly comes in disposable, individually wrapped, single serving packets. samples are usually single serving but don't come in all colors and you can't buy a year's supply of samples. you can buy dispo applicators but if you don't double dip you are wasting a lot of applicators anyway. single serving make up can allow you to double dip and also use your own applicators. to solve ALL problems, i think i just need to get a UV light box and zap everything after i use it. make up and applicators and all. that will kill the bacteria and make it ok to use again.
What disposable item do you feel the most guilty about using?
i do tissue culture research and everything has to be absolutely sterile. if you don't open the paper right on a dispo pipette the outside might touch the sterile part and you have to toss it before even using it. i feel guilty... but i also don't want to compromise a week of work because of a single bacteria.
What disposables do you tend to use more than the usual amount before discarding?
we bake on parchment paper. cool it, dust it. then put it in a ziploc *in the fridge* (cold=bacteria's enemy) to use again.
disposable like memories
get older then get over me
this week has been very sleep deprived due to productivity. :/
in fact, i'm off to bed now, have to work in a few hours!
INSTANT TIME MACHINE!
