Christmas break

The last day of finals was Friday, so now I'm done with school for the semester. I got an A in my plant systematics class! Whew!
Now I've got to think of stuff to do over break. I have work to do for my thesis proposal, and I also have a bunch of reading to do, but nothing that's going to take up all my time. I love free time!
We're trying to figure out how to unlock a bunch of stuff in Super Smash Brothers Melee. Yeah, we're a bit behind. But we just got a gamecube on Thanksgiving!

Nothing to say

I'm waiting to go proctor a final and I don't really have anything to say. But I should write anyway. In Bozeman right now it is raining! It's December and it's raining! Pfff.

I just finished buying Danny presents this morning. Now we've each got a bunch of cool presents! I have no idea what I'm getting, and he has no idea what he's getting. We're going to open our presents on Christmas eve this year. Fun!

Well, like I said, not much to say today.

Kent Condie!

I went to school at New Mexico Tech. I took "Evolution of the Earth" from Kent Condie. Kent Condie is a great geologist and a great teacher. He's one of the most fun professors I've been in the field with. And he writes good books.

For "Evolution" we used Plate Tectonics. Now he's written a new book called Earth as an Evolving Planetary System. It's like a new edition of Plate Tectonics, but it's got a bunch of new stuff, so he's calling it something different. I want to buy this book, but it hasn't been released yet! I can hardly wait!!!

Oh, I just reminded myself of my old boss, Andy Campbell. I worked for him for over two years in the Stable Isotope Geochemistry Lab. Aww. That website is the one I made, and nobody there knows how to program html anymore so it'll probably never change. How funny. I miss Andy.

Today's news

SO much is going on today already and it's only 10:30 in the morning! I found out I've got an A in plant systematics!!! That is the best news of the day by far. I got the second highest grade on the final. Whew!

My advisor got back from New Zealand on Friday, and today was the first day I saw her. She shared a bunch of cool stories about New Zealand and how they study pollen. And she got me a Bungy Baa chocolate bar! Real milk chocolate! Yummy. I guess bungy jumping is a big thing in New Zealand.

The other day I found out that you can track Santa on Christmas eve (if you are so inclined). The government uses NORAD sattellites to track Rudolph's nose. Really. So when you're sitting at home bored at 10 on Christmas eve you can get online and see when Santa's gonna get to your house. Haven't you always wondered? ...

Another plant systematics test

I just finished the second and final key exam in plant systematics. That's it for the class! Soon our grades will be posted. Keep your fingers crossed!
I'm finally getting better after my week-long sickness. I had a wicked cold and it turns out I got an ear infection too! I had to take azithromycin. Now my ear is better though, and my cough is slowly going away. It's taking forever though. Anyway, enough said.
My husband said I should comment on the news, but I haven't heard any news today so I have nothing to say. How's that?
