the explanation 

if you DON'T see the new template, refresh or clear your cache.

It still looks wonky in IE. I'm still considering wordpress, as all the cool people are doing it. But I would have to pay for hosting service, because I would want to fool around with the template, and also you can import haloscan commenting that way.

I'm still thinking about it.

Anyway, if any of you are wondering where the "headless baby" thing came from, it's an old joke of mine.

When I'd meet new people at parties, bars, etc, they'd inevitably ask what I do for a living.

I'm a grad student. What do I study? yeah...uhhh...genetics.

If THAT didn't kill the conversation and scare them off, they'd sometimes ask what I do with genetics. This is a very boring and complicated situation. People WANT to hear "I'm working on a cure for cancer." Or "I clone sheep."

I hate non-science people demanding a detailed explanation of what I do, and then acting all bored and confused when I try to explain it. I STUDY GENETICS! LEAVE IT BE, PEOPLE!

Anyway...the joke was, I started telling people who asked that I cloned headless babies and harvested their organs. It usually took a few seconds before they realized I was joking. But those few seconds were PRICELESS!

Also explained why I was single for so long.....


anyway, that's the explanation for the banner. hope you like it!
