Hi! I'm Geeka. I've been a scientist for, I don't know, it seems like forever, I guess since I started college, so, like 15 years? Anyhow, this is where I'm going to give my take on a bunch of stuff. I'm usually a little bit out there (that is, I don't see the obvious at the outset), which means that you are probably going to have to deal with reading such topics as: Interpersonal relationship training for scientists, my lab pet peeves, how to get along in business when you just came straight out of academia, trying to deal with having a life and being a scientist, really odd topics for a paper, random stuff I found on the internet that made me shoot coffee out of my nose, you know, (ab)normal Geeka. Why the title? Because at the very heart of me, I'm a virologist, and while I don't necessarily do that now, it's how I view the scientific world.

I just got my first email telling me that one of the projects I picked got funded, so here is the first, of hopefully many pictures of Geeka
This is the day of my 5th birthday. You can see 3 things:
Come one people, you can do better. One less mocha for you, one more hour of blushing for me.

I know that this one wasn't exactly detailed in the offerings in the previous post, but I felt that it was appropriate.
Hopefully your friend didn't meet with an untimely demise the next time he was beamed down to a new planets surface.
Aren't you adorable!
This might just be the impetus I needed to make more donations.
The little girl looks just like a tiny version of your avatar. How cute!
Ohhh, now there's a dillemma. A drink named after you, water molecules, or embarassing pics of Geeka?
If that dress came in grown-up sizes, I would totally wear it. You're adorable!!!
Well, at least Julie's cookies aren't restricted by blogger--otherwise, we'd all be screwed :p
I funded a project on Thomas Joseph's page.
Tom- Are you offering any bribes?
I'm trying to think of a good one. I thought of doing a video of me singing ICP's Miracles (but it's too dang long), I thought of outing myself ala TideLiar (he so totally should have used that as a bribe but he did it for free) but I dunno about that one, I thought about offering my services and proofreading a manuscript for someone if they needed it (for free), and I thought about making my grandma's secret cheesecake recipe available to someone who donates to my page (but I have to find the recipe). Any other ideas? I do have a picture of me being groped by a statue of a orangutan. Would that be a suitable bribe?
Hmmm.......well, you think about it. I don't need any quid pro quo anyway.
A singing video would be really funny.
