I FOUND OBAMA!  In SPAIN! Ok, let me explain.  While wandering around Barcelona looking for some bars or tapas places to go to, we stumbled upon this gem. We asked the guy why it said “British Africa” under the name “Obama” because Obama is neither British nor African.  Weird.  But no complaints! Advertisements

Where to start?  I’m finally in Spain, and I have had a grand total of ONE entry since arriving.  I could blame it on the lack of internet in my apartment (which, as of today, has finally been remedied!).  Or I could blame it on the Spanish mentality to take it easy and that anything […]

Hello dear reader! Welcome to Finals-Mode Pineapple Bread.  In other words, Jeanne is looking for any possible way to procrastinate from studying for her fourth semester of law school finals. (After three semesters, you would think she’d have figured out all the tricks– and, admittedly, she has, but somehow can’t quite pull it all together […]

It was just too bad that we had to visit DC so early. The cherry blossoms weren’t due for another three weeks (although some, like above, were starting to bud). The weather was also extremely chilly.

Ah, Disney. It’s already been three weeks since then, and I still haven’t posted! My sincerest apologies– but here I go! To tell the truth, there aren’t that many pictures of food from Disneyworld. As most tourists are wont to do, we ended up spending most of our time trying to enjoy as much of […]

The conference began on Monday, June 9, 2008, and ended on Friday, June 13. Since we arrived on Monday evening, that meant several days of exploration. We took part of Wednesday and most of Thursday off to wander through the very adorable town of St. John’s. On Thursday, we found ourselves lost after our trek […]

*note: ASLO = American Society of Limnology and Oceanography To those of you who may not know, I graduated college with a degree in biochemistry. I have spent the past year working as a technician in the lab of a former professor, working on furthering his work in researching the spectral properties of lignin in […]
