Recap

I never got a chance to say how great The Foreign Exchange was at Cat’s Cradle the other night. Absolutely loved the show.  I purchased the Darien Brockington album back when I first picked up Leave It All Behind.  He was impressive at the show.  After hearing Yazahrah at the show, I feel like she could have EASILY replaced Muhsinah on most of the tracks.  I might try to catch Yazahrah opening for India.Arie soon. Take the jump…

Terrible Day Turned Great

with 2 comments

Up until 20 minutes ago my day looked like:

Woke up @ noon to a terrible sinus headache.  Baked some no-knead bread. Checked out the latest articles on PubMed relating to DnaQ and double strand break repair.  Call and pester Brittany at work. And we don’t stop…

Impulse Moves.

leave a comment »

When most people refer to making impulsive moves, they’re usually referring to very small projects.

“Oh I think I’ll bake a cake.”
“Forget it. I quit.”

I’ve decided that I love Ryan Leslie’s new album…and I’m not the gushing type.  I tire of things fairly quickly…actually I’m going to change that. I tire of things at rates comparable to the speed of light.  Yet, I find myself playing this album over and over and over again.  My Last.FM scrobbler is probably gonna have that name BURNED into the window!

Well, I cannot find reliable tour info about him.  The websites I visited show two dates in March at S.O.B.’s.  Hmm…  If that’s the only time you plan to perform Mr. Leslie, I will have to save up my measly stipend and hopefully a tax refund check.  This morning I decided that I am going to NY next week or two weeks… whenever it is. I must be there.  Now this isn’t such a big deal, but that also means I must completely characterize my mutant library before I go.

Oh science, you make a girl’s dreams so difficult.

....to here.

....to here.

So I had a brief Bring-My-Friend-to-Work moment.

This is what it looked like.

Not really as Exciting as it Looks....

Some friends and I subjected ourselves to the coonery that is SouljaBoy.  Peep our birdwalk below.

Motivation

“I used to dream…oh oh. About the money, the cars, and boys!
Now I see…oh oh… ’cause I’m sitting on top of the world!”

Dear TI and Ludacris,

Thank you for helping me go to the lab today and handle my business.  When I defend my thesis and graduate in a timely manner I will make sure to send you a thank you note along with an invite to my extravaganza.

Please & Thank You,
ZDubb.

So, I’m loving Paper Trail.  I actually bought it.  Along with Something Else (Robin Thicke).  Allow me to say that I all the way stan for Rock City.  Love them dudes – and please put the album out!  Ride for Obama? Oh yes!

Things in the lab are on the up and up.  The crazy thing is that I just came back from Atlanta.  I really didn’t want to leave but them bishes don’t have any gas.  Had to get up outta there!  But back to the grind… I came into the lab late last night to start a couple of things.  I rolled into lab around 11am and the science warlocks smiled upon me… meaning my experiment worked.  Now I have to do some simple confirmations. I am two days away from the greatest discovery – okay maybe not, but I have to tell myself that to show up on a daily basis.

“…Just livin’ my life!”

Rushing

leave a comment »

Today I woke up and my whole morning was a frenzy as it whizzed by.  I planned to be up and IN the lab by 7:30 at the latest.  I was stepping into the shower at 7:54 am.  100% unacceptable.  Why can’t I get my life together?  I usually am in the bed by around midnight.  6 hours is a decent amount of sleep.  What happened to the days of undergrad when I could stay up until around 4 am and be ready for my Cell Bio course at 8? 

I am already sleepy and it’s not even 11 am.  I need some coffee or something.  Lloyd was keeping me awake and efficient yesterday morning.  Today? He has lost his charm.

Here is my synopsis of Lloyd’s Lessons in Love:

Catchy tracks are Treat U Good, Year of the Lover, Love Making 101, and I Can Change Your Life.  Girls Around the World is my favorite, but that’s probably because I heard it first.  I like both the Trey Songz remix and the remix with The Game, TI, Yung Joc, Rick Ross, Yung Dro, Pitbull, Busta Buss, and Ace Hood with the ever so annoying DJ Khaled yelling in the background.

The crew will be reunited soon.  Check the picture below. This weekend it will be everyone minus the 4th person.  Oh well…

 

My Girls!

My Girls!
