Another food rut...

Well, I guess not so much of a rut as a black hole? School/work has been crazy and will continue to be crazy until the middle of November, so that means late late nights. And weekends. Which means I have no energy whatsoever to get home and cook something. Hell, last night it took all the energy I had to stick a bag of popcorn in the microwave. Yes, kettle corn was my dinner last night.
If I don't get a PhD, I fully blame Netflix. Why can't I attack my research with the same focus that somehow appears when a new DVD appears in the mail? TV shows on DVD will be the death of me. First I tackled all of Sex and the City. Then it was West Wing. I just finished Arrested Development, Six Feet Under, and Sports Night. Now it's the entire first season of Scrubs. Gah. Usually I grumble when companies are mean and only put three or four episodes on one disc. But the first disc I got for Scrubs had eight episodes on it. Eight! It's a wonder I was able to restrain myself from watching all eight in one sitting. Because I would.
Ooh, I did have a yummy meal last Friday - a high school friend was in town so a whole bunch of us ate dinner at Home. I may have to attempt to recreate their banana bread pudding and pumpkin cheesecake at home.
Whew. Back to the microtome. Gotta slice up some slides before I take my rats to their MRI.

I agree, Home was a solid establishment.

The song I recommended was by The Servant. It's called Liquefy.

I feel your pain on the whole TV-on-DVD thing. If you're not watching already, you should check out Desperate Housewives.

One week, I stayed up until 4am every day trying to burn through season 1 and 2 of 24. I called in sick to work.

Don't worry, life gets better as a post-doc, esp. if you are in genetics/molecular biology...

Hey, but the way, you won't believe this! Someone googled 'licking my sister' and came to my blog!

Yikes.
