Please explain to me exactly how the human race has not died out, given the inherent stupidity that comes along with parenthood? Seriously.
Today was day one of the 4 day Toxicology conference. Turns out there were actually 7000 of us very cool, not at all nerdy people that descended upon downtown Seattle. I spent the day listening to science talks, reading poster and catching up with co-workers, old and current. This is the first time that I really felt like I was hanging out with my "peeps". Yes, I just referred to a bunch of scientists as "peeps", thereby cementing my status as "sadly not at all cool". So far it's actually been a lot of fun. Going back to our office (which is fortunately only a 10 minute walk from the convention center) to pump every 3.5 hours is definitely making things more complicated though. I could do without that.
Back to the stupidity. In the afternoon, I ran across my grad school advisor and a former co-worker. And they let me know that someone involved with my thesis research was requesting some of our air sampling data. From 6 years ago. I just stared at them. I barely remember yesterday. People asked me why I wasn't wearing green today and I informed them that it's a miracle if I know what month it is, knowing the actual day and what holiday it is is a lost cause. All that to say, there is no way in hell that I remember anything about air sampling data from 6 years ago. Just don't even bother.
We actually did go to a St. Patrick's Day party tonight, thrown by the father of a friend of Daniel's. We ate well. And drank well. I should probably go to bed to sleep both off, since tomorrow is going to start very early and end very very late.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all!
