Book Meme – From Sciencewomen

To avoid a paper review I should be working on… Via Sciencewoman at Sciencewomen, the BBC Book Meme. Using the second list she has posted, supposedly the actual BBC book list. The ones I’ve read are in bold. I didn’t bother starring the ones I plan to read, since my “plan to read” bookshelf is…

I haven’t done a meme in forever. I was going to spend time today writing something substantive in response to the many thoughtful comments on my blog post on the proper way to be a woman in science. Or on some new topic. But instead I’m producing a response to this meme. Blame PhysioProf.

Something a little lighter after all that Watson-puke of recent days… …The World’s Fair’s exceptional “I rank number one on google!” meme!!!!

Eight Things You Weren’t Dying To Know

So, Bora tagged me today with the Eight Random Facts meme. And since it’s Bora, I will respond. Here are the rules: 1. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves. 2. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts. 3. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them…

Coffee Talk

Dave at the World’s Fair asks: Can you show us your coffee cup? Can you comment on it? Do you think it reflects on your personality? Do you have any interesting anecdotes resulting from coffee cup commentary? Can you try to get others to comment on it? I’m a day late and a dollar short,…

Karmen at Chaotic Utopia has honored/saddled me with the Thinking Blogger Award/meme. I rarely ever participate in memes. But since this one is disguised as a compliment I’ll make an exception. Since this comes from Karmen, I do take it as a compliment – thank you, Karmen! It was nice to read what you wrote…

Looking Blogwards at 2006

I generally resist doing the meme thing, but I saw this one over at See Jane Compute and I liked the idea of it. It’s the year in review, by taking the first sentence of the first blog post of each month. So here goes:
