Today I saw my ex again. We lounged around on the UC Berkeley campus, kicking back in the sunny grass. And, of course, we ended up hashing out all the reasons why we shouldn't get back together but want to anyway. He invited me to go camping with him for Valentine's Day, which would be fantastically fun, but is probably a bad idea. When I relayed this dilemma to my mom, she gave me a look and said, "How would that not be getting back together?" Touche. So, despite my cheery countenance in these photos, I'm a bit bummed out.
Book of the moment: The Best American Science Writing 2009. Yeah, I'm a bit late to the party with this one--five years late, in fact. But I have really enjoyed the essays so far. Straight science bores me, but when you add in a human element, it's as good as a Michael Crichton thriller! Oh wait, that's exactly what a Michael Crichton thriller is... (I read three more immediately after finishing Jurassic Park.)

I wanted to also wear lipstick, but my lips are tragically chapped. Tragically, I tell you!
