*It is 125 am and I just finished a draft of the poster I am presenting at PAA in Dallas. To be honest, I hate MS Office. I hate publisher and powerpoint. I hate the fact that I keep dragging tables to resize but Publisher wants to act like I didn’t. Oh no you did not! In any case, I am feeling pretty good about the poster. It’s funny, this process has helped me realize how much I have evolved as a grad student since my first poster many a semester ago. I now realize that the less on the poster, the better. Text only for intro/purpose and a discussion. Tables and figures for everything else. Seriously, if you cant say it in a table for a poster, you don’t need to be saying it.
*I liked this staying up late working thing a lot better when I would drink regular mountain dew and consume little Debbie Snack cakes. Mmmmm… swiss cake rolls.
*Speaking of sweets: If any of you were looking for a Happy Easter gift for me. Here is something:
These are called Marshmallow Eggs. I want to go to there. I love them. So when you all do your grocery shopping in the next couple of weeks, keep your eyes peeled for them… usually they are on clearance after Easter. I love them. I will buy them off you. And no… you can’t have too many.
*I am very motivated to get this poster done, so I can have a weekend of productive cleaning. Seriously, I have PILES of clean laundry that need to be put away. Not to mention several crafts projects (want to do a couple of newborn knit hats for Newborns in Need). I feel like my soul needs to be spring cleaned. If that makes any sense!?
*New running shoes came today… hoping to get to the trail a couple of times this weekend… so that I can train for the Muddy Buddy. Whoot!!
*Nico is prolly going to wake up soon. REALLY miss watching good tv at 2 in the morning. Boo!
* Looking forward to dying some eggs on Saturday. Whoot!
*Nico’s Easter outfit came today!! You will love it!! He is just a whole basket of cute!!
*Why the hell am I so jazzed about Easter? I am 30 years old!
