First off, congratulations are in order for fellow blogger hwiegand, one of my partners in crime over at the Life Science Tools of the Trade blog, who has apparently a) gotten married, b) embarked on some kind of most excellent-sounding European honeymoon adventure, and c) thereby avoided posting anything on LSTOTT for an entire month.
Like I should be talking.
Fun fact: hwiegand is one of three people I know from over at that place who have the same first name. Which is pretty taxing for me, since I am blatantly unable to remember people's names at the best of times.
In other news, I have gotten back to reading the excellent, Lego-based, multi-threaded webcomic that is The Irregular Webcomic, slightly horrified to find that it's been long enough that I've missed over a hundred strips. All caught up now, fortunately. And an even better development is that the science geekery that is Casey and Andy is now back, after a protracted hiatus. I may never get anything useful done again.
As for the upcoming weekend... well, gardening I suppose; working on a scientific manuscript that is long, long overdue; cleaning up a weekly report; some buffing and polishing of the minutes from another meeting; and maybe getting the car's oil changed. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: this rock 'n roll lifestyle, it's killin' me. Killin' me to death, I tells ya.
P.S. Speaking of which, I forgot to mention in last week's post that I also almost-fixed the kitchen faucet. Now it only leaks a bit. I'd call that a qualified success.
