Two things making me cackle with glee

My mood flipped yesterday and I don't entirely know why. Maybe because I'm reaching the point where finalization is inevitable for certain things, like printing my conference poster and departing for the conference?

Regardless - two things are making me cackle with glee today:

1. This morning, scrottie and I had some initial discussion about plans for Thanksgiving. We have decided to have Thanksgiving on a Boat - his sailboat, specifically. Hmm, I don't know if it has a name, but if it doesn't, I'm pretty sure I am obliged to call it Princess TinyBoat. I'm sure there are plenty of remaining details to work out (inviting other folks, etc), but just the notion of Thanksgiving on a Boat gives me something fun to look forward to.

Updated to add: It's called "Free Spirit," which is a generic and dumb name, so I will still nickname it Princess TinyBoat, even though S points out it's not so tiny...

2. I have a new minion who is awesome. I want to get her to run enzyme assays. She just finished taking biochemistry and is super excited about putting all her arcane knowledge to immediate use. This is a phenomenal development.

What are the chances of having devastating storms during thanksgiving in your zip code?

Hahahahaha, well, who knows?

Boaty McBoatface is parked an hour away from here, in Discovery Bay, CA.

If there's a tempest, worst-case scenario is probably that we go/stay home and eat food at a table after sitting in the hot tub for a while to warm up again. California life is disgusting like that.

Let me tell you about the time I spent TGiving in South Dakota. Okay let's not.

Disco Bay is a delightful place to have a boat docked and I can tell you that you won't be the only one having a Thanksgiving party there. :)
