Everybody’s Doing It

Hear that? It’s one of the most exciting sounds in the world. Bongo!
don’t worry, it’s a legally free mp3

I didn’t get as much done today as I had intended. I was pretty tired last night, and was quite ready to go to sleep early, but I couldn’t fall asleep. I had taken claritin a bit earlier, which sometimes has that effect on me. Instead, I whiled away the time until I could sleep by reading a book about lobsters that Amanda gave me for Christmas. I’m not quite done yet, but it’s coming along, and quickly. It’s very interesting. Lobsters are weird. When they are between larval and ‘baby’ lobster stages, they are called superlobsters, because it’s the only time in their life that they are good swimmers, and they shoot through the water with their claws outstreched in front of them. You know, like superman.

I had what might be referred to as a long nap in the middle of the day, having given up on what I ought to be doing, which is to say research. I was pretty much nodding off with my head on my hand, so it was a lost cause.

I have nine days remaining (eight really) to get my proverbial ducks in a row for this paper I’m working on. The data are all there, but they need to be assembled properly, meaning in some coherent fashion. I’m also eventually going to start putting some time into my cardiac electrophysiology blog. I need to come up with a more detailed plan about what to do with it. I have what I think is a decent overall plan, but all will be revealed in time. I’m thinking the first real article (there’s some quick review there) will be on coronary ischemia, in general. Maybe just phase 1A. Ischemia’s a pretty broad topic. I’m going to do a lot of work on all of that stuff tomorrow (fingers crossed). I’m also going to work on this pile of stuff (and others!). I have to go back to my meager existence as a poor college student soon and I intend to be on the top of my organizational game when then semester hits me. stuff

Oh yeah, I have a poster to do for late February. Hot damn!
