Florida

I'm in it, it is warm, and as usual I'm sleeping poorly in my hotel room as the bed is too springy and the pillows too soft. But as I say, it is warm, and unlike some of my colleagues from British Columbia, the midwestern USA and other points in that general direction, I actually got here more or less on time.

One acquaintance, who lives in Iowa, arrived here in the middle of the day on Friday. Having left home on Wednesday. Seems there was a bit of snow.

However, all is mainly well, I am learning lots about complicated and newfangled DNA sequencing technologies, and am slated to return home tomorrow, nearly-full disposable film camera in hand, so we'll see whether that yields any halfway decent pictures. I have high hopes for the shots of the fireworks on Thursday night, but realistically they'll probably be all out of focus and useless.

Not much else to report... might go for a nap now. Later, all.

Florida? With heat and everything?

*sigh*

You get Florida. I get office renovations.

Hey, I just thought--have you ever watched a show called ReGenesis? I get to see it once in a great while when the channel it shows on has good reception. I wondered because it deals with DNA and is set in Toronto, I think...


upwhzhark - watch out for those while you're in FL. Just stay out of the water...

So you didn't even bother to visit that red-necked dwarf who is even shorter than Dawn.

You owe somebody - oh yes.


bknygl - you got it wrong the first time.

Debi - I don't watch it, but one of our funders does the "science behind the show" part. There's also a memorable line in one episode (so I'm told) where someone says "let's get that sample to Dr. xxx's lab at yyy - they're the experts in this!", or words to that effect.

I work for Dr. xxx, and I work at yyy. So that's kind of fun.

Zoe - Santa Claus? Grumpy?
