Its been a little while since my last post.  Things here have been busy as usual – workin and playin!!

So let’s see…. a couple of weeks back we had a poster session at school where I got to judge a couple of posters.

A little while back, I was feeding my snake a live rat as usual.  He apparently wasn’t hungry and refused to eat it, so the rat started biting the snake!  Ah!  I ran out and bought a cage to put the rat in….. and a water bottle and some food.  Then the rat became a pet.  Or course.  He was very cute and cuddly, but unfortunately was probably horribly inbred and came with a respiratory infection and mites.  Sadly, after a couple of weeks he died and I learned never to try and make a feeder rat a pet.  Ugh!

My dear friend, Morgan, recently got a job in Maui, Hawaii working with the Pacific Whale Foundation as a naturalist.  She is moving in about a month, which is great because this has always been her dream (but of course a little  sad for me).  So now I’m trying to cram in as much Morgan time as possible.

Last week I took a trip back to Ohio to see my family.  I was able to spend a lot of time with Bailey, which was awesome!! 10-yr-olds are fun!

Since she is taking figure skating lessons, Bailey gave me a lesson.  Super fun!  Tip: Sticking your tongue out helps with balance.

I got a chance to see dad and Marie briefly after their trip to VA Beach.  Dad obviously loves when I take pictures of us and post them on the internet.  🙂

Next week, I am headed over to Sarasota for a conference, the annual AChemS meeting.  This is a meeting of scientists that study the senses of taste and smell.  Its my first time attending this particular conference, and I will be giving a poster presentation.  I’m hoping to squeeze in some West coast beach time too.  🙂
