how my cats spend their day

i guess if i was a cat and didn’t have to write a thesis, i’d be pretty excited about an anole climbing on the window, too. the poor little guy got trapped between the screen and the window somehow, which delighted the cats to no end, but made it difficult to get him out. eventually i did, though, and now he’s free to go eat all the bugs he wants, without my cats to bug him.

salt water sunshine

i love the smell of sunshine, that smell that you get after being outside in the sun, just relaxing and enjoying a beautiful day. we took a cruise on the institute’s research vessel, which is going to be decomissioned soon, and it was perfect. just the right amount of wind, no clouds, lots of terns and dolphins. ahhhh…

at last…

ok, blogland, i have a confession. i have been holding out on you. way back in september, i started talking to a professor in austin about a lab manager position, just kinda on a whim and because scott told me i needed to start looking into labs for after i graduate. so, after talking to the prof, through email and on the phone, and then in person…he offered me the job! horray, i will be employed after graduation afterall! and not in a fastfood place afterall. yay!!

now i just have to finish my thesis (three sections down, one to go, then revisions) and survive committee meetings and seminars and SICB…but at least i have a job. it pays better than what i get now, and is in austin, which means i get to leave the annoying hellhole that is corpus/ port aransas. the downsides, however are that i won’t be with the boy, or the cats, and that i’ll be living with justin’s mom for a while- nice lady, but i haven’t lived with a parent in a long time…
