another boring update 

Still laptopless (no, not topless. LAPtopless). Apparently, there were more files to back up than we thought on it, and it took MD much longer than anticipated. Lots of mp3s and mpegs. Not porn mpegs. no, not at all.

So MD is putting all the fun programs back on, like office and...whatever. Again, we could have done that ourselves, but I'm saving us the aggrevation ("goddam son of a BITCH!")

Not a whole lot of stuff going on today. Creepy and a little too good looking "robert from roche" stopped by to drop off an offer for a free nucleotide mix. Free nucleotides! How can I resist!

Good thing, because I'm going a lot of PCR lately to solve "the mystery of the misbehaving strains." Zoinks.

Going to attempt to get a flu shot tomorrow. I have asthma, so I've gotten a flu shot every year since I can remember. I've never gotten the flu, but knowing how much my asthma craps me out every time I get sick, I don't want to find out what would happen if I did get it. If I do manage to get one, I'll probably feel guilty about it. A shot for me might mean someone's sweet old grandma won't get the shot and end up in the hospital. Ack! I can't take the guilt!

But I will. I don't want to get the flu, dammit! Sorry granny.

Kevin bought really good steaks on sale last week, and having them sitting in the freezer was KILLING ME! Do you know how long it's been since I've had steak??? I was JONESING for them. At least I think I was. What exactly is jonesing, anyway?

I did them up right: medium rare, smothered in sauteed mushrooms and onions, sprinkled with bleu cheese, with asparagus and HUGE baked potatoes on the side.

Good God am I full. I think I need to unbutton my jeans.

Ahhhhhhh.....that's better....
