christmas tree has some infestation of some kind of aphid or bug eggs or something. and it seems to be getting worse. husband doesn't care. googling - entomologists from Penn State are like no biggie... but I really don't want my good ornaments on there, I don't want it in my house, and I don't want my kids playing with it. i hope they don't hatch.

weird - there must be an assignment at LSU or someplace where students have to read blog posts and then critique them on twitter and create a storify of the critiques each week. I've had 2 students critique posts of mine. Somewhat perfunctory comments. Anyone else?

Not sure if tweet will come through: anyone doing cost sharing of expensive bioinformatics tools (openhelix, oncomine... ?) with their bioinformatics labs? How does that work? Experiences? We tried chemistry stuff at MPOW and it was too complicated.
such freaking b.s. They got rid of our copier/network scanner which was JUST FINE... for this new all in one color thing that has a platten that won't fit anything wider than 8.5".

Mom fell last night, hurt her leg, and apparently didn't move from the chair where Dad parked her until 15 min ago when my sister found out and called 911. what is with these people not calling for help?
my head is going to blow off my shoulders. team lead (outside of library) just forwarded me a copy of something I forwarded to the team MONTHS ago and have cited regularly since to ask if I had seen it.ARRRRRRRRRRGH - POP!
