Once again, characters which are described as brown in the book become white on the cover: Wood Sprites by Wen Spencer

(Not that previous covers in the series didn't have the same problem, like this, er, fine example.)

Quote of the Day [Apr. 2nd, 2014|05:10 pm]
Being a good manager means having enough familiarity with what the workers are doing to be able to tell good work from bad, and what it takes to do good work. If one hires good workers, listens to what they need and sees that they get it, good work will be the natural result. Micro-management pre-supposes that people are bad workers; therefore it is bad management.
-- elenbarathi in a comment on nancylebov's post on The kind of management which doesn't lead to humorous videos.

This is weird - cannot see own most recent entry [Mar. 9th, 2014|11:17 am]
[Current Mood |bemused]

So when I go to my own journal, the most recent entry showing is the one about shoveling, not the one with the link to the praying mantis pic. I can see that entry via direct link from the email I got about people commenting on it, and in my Friends page (I am, of course, my own friend), but not from looking at my entries or going to the option to edit past entries. Very odd. Wonder what will happen with this one.

Snow is a four-letter word [Feb. 5th, 2014|02:26 pm]
So, despite what you think you might see, is shovel. Dear gods, I ache. And there's more white crap still falling, and more predicted.

Spring cannot come soon enough.

For Jeff, Geoffrey, and everyone with a passing acquaintance with scientific research [Jan. 10th, 2013|03:37 pm]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

I refer you to Twitter hashtag #OverlyHonestMethods and a related Imgur Album.

- We used semi-anaerobic culture conditions because sandra forgot to start the shaker.
- Study sites are in non-linear transect b/c there is only road in the region & we couldn't find mules to carry our gear.
- I bought taq polymerase from invitrogen bc they had a contest to win an iPad with purchase
- The sample was limited as we ran out of undergrads willing to be research subjects

Go see!

Mid-candy-giving, Halloween [Oct. 31st, 2012|06:57 pm]
[Current Mood |aggravatedaggravated]

What is it with some of these parents? Most of them do as one would expect - either waiting on the sidewalk for the older kids, absent for the teens, or assisting their toddlers. Most are perfectly polite and come are charming. But what is with the parent who come up with their own sacks, holding out for candy of their own? Lady, you're over 30 - you really need to leave the trick-or-treating to the kids. Other lady - WTF? you come to the door with 3 sacks and no children and tell me you're 'collecting for three'? With no kids in sight. Just - WTF?

The dog didn't greet me at the door [Jan. 17th, 2012|06:02 pm]
[Current Mood |resigned]

Usually she's all Miss Wiggly-Butt, but today I didn't see her as I arrived home from work, somewhat late after having run some errands. As I sorted the mail I looked around and spied her slowly padding toward me. She was cringing in the "I've Been a Bad Dog" way, with her head down and her tail tucked in, just the tip wagging hesitantly.

Then I noticed that the carpet we use as a welcome mat and the floor around it were rather wet...
