Odyssey

I'm a molecular biophysicist in a biochemistry department. In a college of medicine. And I'm funded by the NSF. Not too sure my dean likes that... I'm here to blather on about things that interest me and to raise the average age of the bloggers here by at least 1.2567 years. And I'm Australian.

My posts are presented as opinion and commentary and do not represent the views of LabSpaces Productions, LLC, my employer, or my educational institution.

*cough* *cough* Bit dusty in here. Plenty of space though. Like the white background.

Neighbors seem a little... young. Hope they're not too noisy. Especially that pommy git. If he gets out of hand I can always bring up the English cricket team...

Now, let's see, where to put the espresso machine... Hmmmm, not too many power outlets. Guess it'll have to go on top of the bar. And I'll put the beer fridge to the left. I think the pool table should fit nicely over there... Yep, good lighting too.

Yes, this will work nicely.

Right then, I guess I'll sign the lease and line up the movers. Hopefully I can start moving in in a day or two...

Glad to have you, Odyssey! Just don't be surprised if the beer doesn't last long.

And a scientist, to boot. Moving in with postdocs, grad students, and an Englishman? I give the supply about 3 hours :P

You AND Tideliar both sold out!? What's the world coming to? I don't think Brian knows what he's gotten himself into ... surely he can't afford enough beer to keep you both going.

From what I hear, Genomic Repairman and Tideliar already have a bootlegging operation underway. I just hope they let me man the Tommy Gun.

Really excited to have you here, Odyssey!

Actually I give it ~30 minutes...

Geeka: Yes, I am.

Dr. Becca: My wife would kill me. Very, very slowly and painfully. Very painfully.

Thanks for the welcome guys. I'll have you all over to celebrate once I've finished the move.

Not selling out. More like moving to the Wild West and getting a gig as the piano player in the saloon.

Actually that's going under the bar. I like a broad selection of ales, lagers, stouts, etc. There just isn't enough room for all the Kegerators that would be required.

Great!

Can't wait for all the wisdom you'll be able to pass on to us younguns.

Kinda like how to get pissed at a conference one night, and give a great talk the next!
