PSA: i am still playing that dragon game and it is open for registration if you’re into that particular type of timesink.
Today I learned that I have 15 days to turn that 5 page outline (left) and list of things I don’t know (right) into a beautiful draft of my prelim (an F30 grant proposal which determines if I get to stay in my graduate program or not).

Friendly reminder from your potentially-local Obamacare lady:
The open enrollment period for applying for and selecting a qualified health care plan through the federal (healthcare.gov) or state-based exchanges ends on March 31st.
However, there is no deadline for applying for the Medicaid program. Applications for Medicaid and CHIP (the Children’s Health Insurance Program) are accepted year-round at local departments of social services. You can apply by mail, in person, and often online, on a state-by-state basis. Websites like Pennsylvania’s COMPASS and Maryland’s SAIL can be accessed any time and used by residents to apply for programs like Medicaid, SNAP, and energy assistance; and they’re less likely to be subject to the delays the larger exchanges have been faced with as open enrollment nears its end for the spring.
You can check income guidelines for Medical Assistance for your state here.
Happy health care!
Tumblr’s activity graphs don’t go down when you lose followers??? Like, thanks for coddling my fragile self-esteem, but that is simply not good record-keeping. Data above all. What if someday I want to simulate the stock market crash of ‘28 with my follower count and visualize the dramatic moment in charts? What if I want that, tumblr staff?? What then???
Keisha plunged the rough, algae-covered sponge into her bucket and shook it, wringing soapy water out between her fists. She tackled her project again, frowning as she scrubbed the last layers of slimy green from the statue’s face.
The first story is live at Inscription Magazine! Come read “Salt Favor,” by Kate Hall!
I really enjoyed this story! Tense and sweet, with a full cast of ladies. Also some deeply creepy mermaids, if that’s a selling point for you (who am I kidding, of course it is.)
Had a really nice night tonight! It was 50 degrees and beautiful today, so I took the trolley downtown and had wine and cheese with friends, followed by sushi with melaniehopes and then I came home and spent some serious adult scientist time with ncbi-pubmed, zfin, xenbase, and jax.
had a dream this morning starring me as Will ‘someone please help’ Graham
wherein Hannibal promptly stabbed me right between the shoulderblades (that fucker)
and then he chased the ambulance I was in with preternatural speed (that goddamn fucker)
and when the screaming of the orderlies stopped I twisted around on my stretcher and there he was, placid and smiling
it was utterly terrifying
and i woke up with backpain
melaniehoping and isozyme are learning how to make vids and we created a monster. a monster with a text intro, tasteful transitions, handy screen-grabbin technologies, and the first song in my itunes library.
My twitter is at least 80% livetweets of my science existence.
