Send a Grrl to Antarctica

I can’t help but have noticed that one of our own, GrrlScientist, is in the running to be selected as the blogger to go on a trip to Antarctica and blog from there with the Quark Expedition in February. As of my checking, Grrl is in third place.

I have no doubt that She’d do a hell of a job, given her writing talent, and who can resist a chance to send a fellow ScienceBlogger to some frigid, desolate plain at the bottom of the world? There’s not much time left, only until September 30.

So vote, already!

    She’s still third, but is creeping up on second.

    Come on, folks! Let’s show the scientific blogosphere is bigger than the Osmonds!

    Bigger than the Osmonds, yes, but the real question is, do we have more teeth?

    Waaay OT, but…
    Orac’s head may asplode with the news that Sen. Tom Harkin will replace the late Sen. Kennedy as chairman of the Senate health committee where he will be in charge of the health care overhaul.

    My support for this plan will seriously drop if the “public option” includes payment for CAM modalities.

    What a pain in the ass trying to vote for Grrl!

    They use some verification system called recapture that puts out one intelligible two word phrase in four tries. I entered a 8 character password and it came back and said I needed a minimum of 8 characters. Did that twice. Wow. I really shouldn’t be taking time to do this stuff anyway as I am technically at work so I quit trying.

    Never did vote.

    So maybe Grrl should check and see if whoever is running this voting thing has anything to do with her trip to the frozen wasteland. If so it could be dangerous.

    Anyway, if the thought counts I hope Grrl wins. I’ll relax later after work and try again.

    Good luck Grrl!
    Stay warm.
