cold season has arrived

so either all the new students at LSHTM or the huge percent of persons riding on public transport have finally gotten to my immune system . . . it's official, i have the common cold :( this time it is unlike my other colds, today my eyes just keep watering, so people keep asking me if i'm okay or why are you crying, but i'm not - it's just my blocked passages.

in good news my co-worker Dr. TB as i'll call her, just had a paper accepted into infection & immunity, where she's second author, so that's exciting news & my other co-worker almost dr placid i'll call her might have discovered something cool with regards to Th-17 cells, so all in all it's been a good day so far & it's only 09.48!! other exciting new unrelated to my work is that the A380 (which my sis worked on the engine for with Pratt & Whitney) took it's first commercial flight from Singapore to Sydney, click here to see it take off.

as for me . . . just sick & trying to put together my poster for the WMC in Thailand in less than a month!!!! so i'll leave you with this awesome photo of me dad's house on the lake . . .

cheers my dear, glad you have confidence in us :) now imagine how much better we'd be if you, Dom & Susan were working with us as well!!!

BTW there will be PhD posts from Ulrich Schaible's lab soon as he just got a HUGE grant (I reckon he'll be looking for 2 part time PhD/part time RA) so keep your eyes peeled!!!

They won't give me money as I'm a USA res. BUT if you hear differently, let me know. Also, Dom will be calling/emailing Helena about letters of reference and possible positions in her lab maybe maybe maybe. I'm applying to Imperial so we may be back soooooon.

WOOHOO?!? I guess a big woohoo is in order...

Great pix of the pappa's house...looks almost commercial.

So sorry to hear you are sick...I can't believe I was able to spread a cold germ that far, but...LOL My Grams used to make a poltice of garlic and onion for the chest. I think we got over our colds just to AVOID this! LOL

Hey, that house looks familiar. Too bad we never made it out onto the lake to get a picture. This is the best one I have.
