I really liked the show "MacGyver" as a kid. I'm re-watching the series for the first time in maybe twenty years and like it again, but for different reasons.

Rocky Mountain Rollergirls

Derby fucking rocks! For just ten American dollars ($8.40 Canadian), you too can attend a roller deby bout, featuring scantily clad and athletic women inflicting violence on each other and racing around in circles!

Seriously, this was so much fun I lost my voice this morning from enthusiastically screaming into the ear of the really tall guy who made the unfortunate...

Alright, this needs to be shared because it is both hysterically funny and really irritating.

I was awakened 30 minutes ago by a splashing noise that sounded a lot like one of my cats peeing on something, but also, not.

Took a trip to Moab/Arches National Park this weekend with some friends from my graduate program. Arches Park makes you feel very small, like giants are going to come cruising around the corner singing Fee-Fi-Fo Fum and want to grind your bones to make their bread.

Hey C,

I am thinking about going back to school to obtain a masters in science. Would you recommend any specific programs? My BS is in biology and I work in the world of organ and tissue donation. I thought I would ask since you are a PhD student and all. smile
