My arch nemesis....

The stupid sale sign in front of stupid Banana Republic.

I'm innocently walking home from the subway after teaching, and there it is. The pretty, shiny, "Sale of the Season" sign. I should know better, but sometimes the bug gets a hold of me. I must try things on. If the shirt is marked off to $30 from $60, I'd be a moron not to buy it! I have that exact same sweater in green, but I can get it in purple too! You know, stupid shopaholic logic like that.

At least I only tried on clothing that was on sale... I almost made it out without a purchase and then one of the tops fit too perfectly. Curses. I need some self control. I need help. I need matching shoes and jewelry!

If only food and booze didn't also cost money.

Look mom!

So the past few weeks have been craptacular due to a Very Big Deadline I have this weekend, superhuman expectations from faculty for the semester, and my ever growing crankiness with most people.

But for some reason I'm feelin' strangely fine.

Possibly because I successfully ran my very first PCR today! Yaaay! I even put a picture on the refridgerator. Gee I bet mom would be so proud!
I also got to witness Claudius' reaction to a pigeon on the window sill. The whole thing was hilarious and freakin' adorable. Claudius kept trying to attack the pigeon, but the pigeon was just like, "Hey wassup?". Then the pigeon started pecking at the cat's flicking tail through the window.
