bitter seeds indeed

We just came back from Mogul, the Indian restaurant over in Webster as a goodbye lunch for our departing/deporting Chinese post-doc.  I am stuuufffeed.  For breath fresheners, Indians chew on handfuls of fennel seeds.  Oh sweet god I should not have done that.  I had to spit it all up in my truck bed before I lost it.

We went to the "computer place" where we dropped off an old HPLC computer some weeks ago to be fixed, and these guys are super-shady.  We should definitely not have taken it there.  We went to go pick up the computer today, unfixed, and found that the shop had disappeared to places unknown, with our computer and its $12,000 PCI card for the HPLC unit.  uh oh.....  This does not bode well for my work, and not well for the senior post-doc who put the computer there.

I guess I'm going on the road after work, to be randomly searched by the Dept of Homeland Security before I get on the Bolivar Ferry.
