Perils of the snow: Fashion

The outfit I ordered for Antarctica was supposed to replicate Vinces ‘Human Coke Can’ perfectly, but apparently to Columbia, ‘cherry’=hot pink. ‘Cherry’ is RED, Columbia, not PINK. ‘Strawberry’ is PINK. So now Im more like a human fanta can. STRAWBERRY fanta.

Christmas tree and pie

Mom to Friends: Abbie is going to Antarctica! Friends: OMFG! When??? Mom: The end of December! Friends: **GASP!** SHELL BE GONE OVER CHRISTMAS!! Mom: *blink* We dont really do Christmas in my house.

ERVs adventures in DC

I had to go to Washington DC/Bethesda last week for a short conference. I spent almost the entire time pooping, thanks to some food poisoning I got from a very expensive, universally recommended restaurant. YAY!! Luckily I wasnt sick when Francis Collins was supposed to speak. But he had to cancel. Still pooping, btw. Awesome.…

Sure, its traumatic, but some scientists/MDs could have used a lesson like this when they were younger. I’ve never been very good at math or science. I enjoyed the stories embedded in history and literature but lost interest when it came to periodic functions and the table of elements. So in sixth grade, when each…
