Every night when I go to bed, I turn on the TV to cartoon network and watch Adult Swim from 12 until 2:30 roundabouts, until I pass out.  I've been doing this for months and months, maybe since I moved to this little island.  Apparently recently, Adult Swim goes away and becomes children's cartoons sometime in the early AM, because I've been awakened for several days now with some sort of sickness unto death version of babyfied Warner Brothers.  Today I woke up and saw some chibified baby Daffy Duck  waving his face-painted ass in other chibified characters' faces as they slept.  I like to watch CNN Headline News in the morning, not this bullshit.  I think it's giving me strange nightmares in the last part of my sleep.


Anyway, I did some grad student and professor wrangling and thanks to me, there is no journal club from 4-5, and therefore I can drive home early enough to hopefully not be stuck in the ABSURD traffic I just know will be plaguing the I-10 today.  Of course, I have to teach half the frigign lab the most difficult to master ASSay before I go.  I don't think I'm a very good teacher.  But I was saddled with teaching two Texas A&M toxicology classes in a few months, so I guess it's everyone's loss.

Either way, I'm on my way to Baton Rouge for the weekend.  Dig it!  While I'm there I have to repair a big section of drywall, replace an electrical outlet, and recaulk the bathroom after my last "mildew-resistant" caulk job turned into a friggin Petri dish.  That, and supervise the frying of the turkey. And do my take-home MolTox exam, and read some papers, and prepare a presentation, and finish writing my abstract, and finish writing our microarray paper, and ...I guess celebrate Thanksgiving somewhere in there...   I'm going to try to find some time to go to the pistol range if I can find the time, my S&W is just begging for some action.

Baton Rouge here I come..  I hope the weather has cleared up some.

This is Pharmacology & Toxicology Dept. journal club which is on Wednesdays usually.

Yeah, I go to Ewing on occasion, for NIEHS stuff. Is there a Tox journal club there also?
