Needed Some Colin

I would so love to come home to his gorgeous man! This is definitely one of my favorite pictures of him. Nummies I tell ya...NUMMIES!

Spent today at a really great tank up and running! Keep your fingers crossed that I'll get my ophiuroids in 2 weeks and get my stuff done. I'm testing next week.

Working on my Stratigraphic Paleontology midterm all day tomorrow. I figure it will take anywhere from 8-12 hours. Not too bad in the grand scheme of things.

9 days until my cruise...YAY ME!!

Now that's some calamari!!

A 990 pound squid was caught in Antarctic waters this past week and took 2 hours to get into the boat. Look at the beak on that thing!! I certainly would not have wanted to mess with it. But it sure would have fed a LOT of people!!

Here's the link if you want to read the whole story! Thanks to my friend Christy for passing this story on to me!

Got Milk?

So tonight my friends and I were looking at gallons of milk on, that's The reviews were quite interesting...let me share....

1. As a scientist, I approach the claim of Tuscan provenance of this gallon of whole milk with skepticism. But after extensive testing, including radiospectronomy, carbon-14 decay, and a double-blind study using thousands of subjects, I've concluded with almost complete certainty, that this milk is indeed Tuscan, most likely from the region around the town of Urbino. Whether you use Tuscan Whole Milk to boil up your own fresh mozzarella, or a nice cream reduction sauce, or simply pour it over the arched hemispherical rump of a hooker named LaQueesha for the lucky bachelor to lap up like a kitten, please know that Tuscan Whole Milk is 100% Tuscan. And you can believe me, because I'm Italian. And a scientist. We scientists do this kind of thing all the time. We don't have time for sex.

2. This is the goodest milk I've ever had! I'm buying all of my milk milk from the internet from now on! Forget the supermarket folks, online is the place to get your milk!

3. When I got my milk, I didn't know exactly what to expect. However, when I put that cold, white substance to my lips... ...Well, lets just say that I passed out to to the overwhelming almost-ninja-like greatness. It made me splash all the water out of the tub. My mom told me to stop.

4. This milk was so good, I passed out. When I woke up 3 weeks later, apes ruled the earth. It was crazy. DRINK THIS MILK!

5. This milk is so great. I gave some to my cat and after she slurped it up, she immediately started begging for more. When I said No kitty, she went crazy, climbed me like a tree, jumped in my hair and started trying to claw my eyes out. Luckily I was still able to see well enough through all the blood oozing down my face to stagger to the refrigerator, yank out the milk, and throw the container down hard enough to knock off the top. Milk gurgled all over the floor and Kitty forgot all about me! I slipped on the way to the bathroom and the sight of all that blood and milk swirling around me was really quite striking. I'll have to order some more one day.

I'm ordering tomorrow!!

14 days!!

Yep...14 days until I cruise. Can't wait to get out on the water. Am looking forward to getting out of the cold and doing some crazy stuff. Bought a book today for the airplane ride. Hoping not to do too much reading while onboard unless it's outside on a deck chair.

Horoscopes and Life

I'm always a bit curious about horoscopes. I don't put a lot of faith in them. But every once in awhile when I read mine I really get to thinking there might be something to it. For instance, today. I decided I was going to take a quiet day to myself. My world has been crazy lately and I felt like I needed a day to myself. A day to stay home in my jammies, get ready for my crop tomorrow, watch a video I'd get the idea, just a day for me without answering phones or going outside. So, imagine my surprise when I clicked on the MSN horoscope for today and read this:

"Try to make sure you get some quality time to yourself today, dear Virgo. Your nature is one that thrives on intensity of thought, creativity, sexuality, and emotion. Without adequate time alone in a space that is comfortable for you, you may begin to feel worn out. Such things as irritability or withdrawal can be strong indicators that it's high time you got some time to be alone with yourself. Make some plans for this today."

Freaky yet interesting, isn't it?

My First PhD Acceptance!

As you know I have applied to 6 different universities for my PhD. I have "unofficially" gotten my first acceptance. One of the professors has asked me to join the program and "hopes he can convince me to attend UT as they have a lot to offer." In fact, the first year stipend is quite high and I would be working with middle school students in a GK-12 program. GK-12 is a program that takes graduate students and puts them in classes with middle school students. The teacher & graduate student work hand in hand to teach earth science to the students. It's a great program and was offered through UNCW until 2 years ago when the grant was not renewed through the National Science Foundation. Anyway, this offer would be great for many reasons: still close to my family and friends, working with someone I have great respect for and also good money. I am highly considering this university.

Oh, and did I mention that I get to keep working with my echinoderms...except now it will be the crazy wonky ones that no one knows anything about? It's like a whole new world...literally...and the future projects/possibilites would be endless because so little is known about them!!
