Great news! I won $1000 in the Blogging Scholarship! Although Stephen Yellin of DailyKos took first place (and $5000), me and Paul Stamatiou both won $1000, and the rest of the bloggers won $100. What a great surprise, as I had completely written off winning anything. Thank you all for voting, no matter who you…

Last Chance to Vote

Looks like a lost cause, but I always was a sucker for a lost cause. Voting for the Student Blogging Scholarship ends tonight at midnight, eastern time. So, its your last chance to vote for me to get $5000 to help pay for my PhD. And thanks to all that have already voted!

Nick called it first: Flags and Lollipops has “calculated” the hottest science bloggers on the Net using a “Hot ot Not” type algorithm. (If such a thing could be called an algorithm). Well yours truly was voted the hottest blogger by a jury of her peers. Ego stroked? Check! No Date Tonight? Check! Still a…

I’m on Vacation, Jeez!

I’m on vacation, so excuse the lack of posts. Blogging will resume tomorrow! Even if I wasn’t on vacation, I’m WAY too traumatized by the death of Steve Irwin to post anything. Most of you may not know this, but I harbored a (not so) secret crush on Mr. Irwin, and now must find an…

Neuro-Carnival Encephalon #4 Up!

Go check out Issue #4 of Encephalon, a neuroscience carnival, over at the Neurocritic.

Ugh, I’m writing a paper today and swamped until the afternoon. And there seems to be some problem with file uploading right now, so i’m gonna check back later. So Grey Matters will be out around 3 or 4 pm today. Sorry for the delay! Some exciting news though: Irene Pepperberg has agreed to do…
