Done (at least this stage)

I have finished, printed and handed my dissertation to my committee.  After printing and before handing it out, I found one important typo.  Any bets on who in my committee finds it in the next week?
Now the focus switches to preparing a presentation for my defense next week and moving out of my lab.  I also have a few things still to take care of in regards to moving out of my house, though Riley is doing a monster job of most of that.  Now I should have more time to help.
No food news today, though I did get quite a kick out of learning more about the latest news from Glaxo-Smith-Kline, where some of my former class-mates work.  Their new weight loss drug Alli (pronounced Ally) has some, shall we call them "interesting" <s>side effects</s> treatment effects.  For a nervous laugh, check out this site, and visit the "How does it work" section, especially the part on treatment effects.  I'm not sure any weight loss plan that includes bringing an extra pair of pants to work is for me.


  1. Congrats on getting your thesis done!! Yea!! I bet that is a big relief!

  2. Congrats on turning in your dissertation - I hope you celebrated!

    Ew on the Alli thing - so glad I don't need to take anything like that!
