Been a little while since I posted last, so I've got a nice update to give.

1) There is laundry thief in my appartment building, stealing mostly women's undergraments. They posted the memo about two hours after I did a load of laundry. Now I'm concerned I'm missing clothing.
1a) I've been watching too much criminal minds, and reading profiling text books. Underwear theft can escalate to rape >.>
1b) I'm going back to my parents house to do laundry from now on.

2) EXPERIMENTS ARE WORKING!!!!1! There is strong evidence to suggest my protein of interest is being modified. Now I'm going to look at the other isoform of my protein, and of the modifier. I'm going to make mutant proteins to find the interaction site, and I'm going to treat my cells with funky things to see if it alters binding or activity. I might even look into siRNA to see if it knocks down the funky activity we see in our protein.

3) I spent a great five days with my awesome British friend. I spent a ridiculous amount of money on jewelry, completed some great sets, saw five plays, drank a lot of wine, talked a lot of fanfic, and watched Secret Diary of a Call Girl. I want to go back now.

4) There was a huge storm that rolled over London last night. I was outside doing bootcamp (which got cancelled half way through due to the weather). It was literally rolling, too. You could see about five different cloud fronts passing over head, with the storm front being this huge black roiling thing. Once I got to my car I tried to chase it so I could take a picture, but it was moving at a fair pace, and the London traffic system is designed to stop you at nearly every light, and it doesn't provide advanced greens.

5) Planning the SPN weekend to end all weekends with [livejournal.com profile] fleshlycherry. It makes me happy. Now I just need to get on my BigBang. I've submitted the summary, and I'm about 1/10 of the way through the word count, with just the prologue. It's going to be a monster fic, I think.
