Sweater Thursday

I took many pictures of the sweater and me in it, in motion. I have worn a sweater of the same style on a previous sweater thursday, only in brown. I am one of those people who has 3 of the same shirts because I am of the mind that you should go with what works. I can't keep up with jobonga or whitty in sweater numbers, but I will occasionally show off when I am wearing a sweater. Please excuse any overlap.

A hairy situation

If there is one thing Adam hates, it's hair. Any type of hair really, accumulating in any environment, produces revulsion. He has trained his fiancee to remove the hair from the shower drain after each use. He also hates that the floors in the lab don't really get cleaned, leaving dust bunny hairball tumbleweeds. We (Jen and myself) were removing gray hairs from another graduate student's head (Jess). We put them on the black bench top to just make sure they were grays because as scientists, we need validation. So here we had a some gray hairs, freshly plucked, and ready for mischief. Knowing how much Adam hates hair we decided it would be really sweet of us to cut these long grays into smaller pieces and curl them slightly, putting them in the middle of his pristine workspace. You can imagine what they looked like, but if not there is a picture provided on the left. We put them in a pile here just for mass effect; we later spread them out to make them less conspicuous. I also put one on his scissors to make him throw up a little bit in his mouth. Look closely and you can see the hair on the handle of those blue beauties.

He hasn't come in to work yet, but I will update when I know the status of the operation.

update: He didn't even notice. That just makes me angry enough to start planting things around his workspace until he goes insane.

My Favorite Holiday.

Easter is approaching. It is one of my favorite holidays. This is not really due to the resurrection of Jesus, although that seems cool, but more for the candy. Easter candy includes the marshmallows covered in sugar, the sugar covered in chocolate, the chocolate covered in sugar, the list could go on forever, but I won't. Anyway, I was in walgreens last weekend, picking up some charleston chew (a highly unappreciated delight), when I saw that the easter candy was on the racks. I searched for my all time favorite, and feasted my eyes upon the last bag of cadbury mini eggs. Glorious! They are perfect with their creamy chocolate and crunchy sugar shell. I think they add an addictive substance, akin to nicotine, to get people coming back for more. I think they should come up with other shapes so we can have them through out the year.

See. It actually affects the Jersey people. At least enough to whine about it on It is a dirty place though, just look at Newark. The only good things they have there is the airport and ikea.

four eyes.

I noticed last night that no one is wearing corrective lenses on LOST. No one is so unfortunate as to have reading glasses or be nearsighted? I find it hard to believe that out of 42 people on the island, only one of which is under the age of 18, there is not one person wearing glasses. No Piggy? Perhaps I am working with a population sampling bias, but a large proportion of people I know must wear glasses. Maybe it's because we read in the dark too much when we were children.
As I was thinking about this last night I was thinking about how I would survive on the island. I really can't see at all. I would have hopefully remembered to pack my glasses, but sometimes I forget. Then I would have my contacts but a limited supply of cleaning solution. And those are just 2 week disposals. Could I boil sea water and use that a buffered saline solution somehow? doubtful.
I also just want to plug for those of you who wear the glasses. 39 dollars! its true. I have numerous pairs and they are for reals glasses. check it out.

Just a FYI: I have started watching LOST from the very beginning. woah. its good. I forsee it being something I will blog about in the future. Jack is a hot doctor with hot tattoos to boot. I think that keeps me enthralled right there.

Magenta Tights Part Trois?

I am always looking for things to wear with my magenta tights and I think I found another opportunity:I just ordered this off of urban outfitters for only 14.99! that is a steal! I already have similar hair to the model, so I think I can pull it off. Plus since I am midget it won't be as mini. I think this will be traveling with me for girls gone wild: madison 2008.

Joanna, the theme of girls gone wild this year is girls gone mod, so you should plan to dress accordingly.

Are you one of those nerdy college types?

I was wearing my sweater thursday outfit to Braza this thursday night, and every time I go to this bar for 5 dollar martini night with my friend, i am hit on by either sketchy men or 40 year olds. Thursday night was no exception, a sketchy 40 year old man, who could have been sporting a mullet if he had just let that hair flow, came issuing forth. He kept interjecting into our conversation while my back was turned. After he had finally gotten my attention because I felt sorry for him, he opened up with the line, "So, are you one of those nerdy college types ?". I didn't really know how to respond to that, so I sort of looked at him with my intellectual eyes, and said, "no". I did talk to him for a little bit because my companions were talking groceries.

The highlight of the night was after he was really drunk he gave me his phone number talking about setting a up skiing expedition, party bus and all. Awesome.

Pat- Ski ? FUN? I don't know that I like to have fun. I am a nerdy college type.

I could really go for five guys right about now.

Five guys burgers and fries is sweeping the nation (madison get ready). I recently took the lab on an outing there on thursday. They were quite pleased with the resulting flavors. Who wouldn't love food fried in peanut oil? The answer: no one. Well, unless you had a peanut allergy, and in that case, you would go into anaphylaxis as soon as you entered the restaurant. Free peanuts are up for grabs through out the place, but they spontaneously combust after leaving the store, due to all of the small atopic wienie children. Check one out if you get the chance.
