a number of points to hit:
firstly, happy new year everybody! my resolutions are still hazy at the moment, save one: thinking of the best Rock Band band name EVER. after Coomassie Blue, of course.
big day in Iowa today! my man Obama takes the Dem caucuses by an 8 point margin, while Mikey Huckabee, the scariest of the old white dudes running on the Republican side, gets to claim Iowa for his very own. come on, Mitt, get your easily-beatable flip floppy ass in gear!
in sadder caucus news, Chris Dodd (who I became a big fan of after watching his FISA speech from a few weeks back) got bupkus and dropped out. poor guy.
life stuff! I'm heading back to boston on monday, so here's hoping that the "worst storm to hit the bay area in years" disappears by then. after that, it's two weeks of developmental biology boot camp. that'll be followed by real classes and a rotation at the zebrafish-happy Lab of Zon, studying hematopoiesis, a word I have yet to spell correctly on the first try. should be fun times!
in the meantime, i am thoroughly addicted to Scrabulous. augh.
speaking of classic games, Kanye West and Beyonce playing Connect Four may be the most adorkable thing in the universe:
coming soon- my voluminous top albums list of 2007. i know ye all wait with breath that is heartily BATED.
