So for lent...... I gave up caffeine.

I did not partake on Sundays, so a total of 44 days caffeine free.

The first few days were rough. Exhausted, little cranky, easily fatigued.

I had my first cup of coffee this morning with breakfast..... At 9am.....and I am still buzzing a bit from one cup.

Needless to say I am going to take it easy with caffeine from now on :-)

So sad! I learned about the awesomeness of Sonic from summers spent in Virginia and was beside myself when they opened one in MA outside Boston. I go every chance I get!

So this is one of the 4 places I would love to work and I just applied for a job there.

The USP is a non profit that sets the standards for all our medicine and foods. They make the reference standards to which every manufacturer compares their product, chemical, drug and food product to. They develop the scientific testing procedures for each of these chemicals and detail the testing required.

To be part of making the world better through standardizing of materials would be such an amazing opportunity.

Of my top 4 places, this is in the top 2. My list is:

Food and Drug Administration
U.S. Pharmacopeia
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
NASA

Fingers are definitely crossed for this one. It would also get me into the DC area which is where I want to end up anyways. That means +Ben Zaitz and I could meet for beer when he comes to town :)

This is pure speculation..... But isn't it convenient that +T-Mobile just increased their unlimited plan to $80.

Sprint offers their unlimited my way plan for $80......

Trying to ease the pain for a merger?

Will contracts come back?

I was considering a switch to unlimited with T-Mobile but it will now cost just too much for me.

I am a scientist by day and tech junky by..... Well all the time.
Introduction
I am a really easy going guy, and just realized I have not really fleshed out my profile, so start a conversation and see if I am worthy of your circles.

I enjoy stimulating conversations and have little time for shallow people my life. I will listen to whatever someone has to say but do not tolerate disrespect of my opinions and ideas.

Fun Fact about me: I have a near photographic memory and it is both a blessing and a curse sometimes. It is kinda freaky how detailed it can be.

Things I love:

All things SCIENCE!
Cooking
Wine
Traveling
Anything Android
Anything computer related (hardware mostly)
Driving
People
Camping

I am an Eagle Scout and I am proud to be one. I am happy the Scouts are moving into the 21st Century, but they need to go further and include homosexual leaders. At least it is progress.
