Analyzing data, enjoying a moment of respite from the new grad students in the lab, contemplating cutting my day off at the 8 hour mark for a change. I could leave before the sun goes down, and take the uber-scenic route home...

Of course you are. Relaxing in a hurry is an oxymoron. [Razz]

I'm currently procrastinating on finishing something I should have finished two or three years ago...

Just got done with my database final (can you say 'lame'?)

Just chillin' in my room, waiting to go birdwatching with a friend. Apparently she's obsessed with photographing birds, so we made a plan to go driving around the mountains with a camera... could be fun.

Also, I'm drinking yummy yellow powerade. Mmmmmm.
