on a simpsons rerun tonight:
[rock wrapped with a note flies through window]
homer: ack! a flying rock! call a geologist!
hehe. always nice to know we're needed somewhere.
our first softball game was last night. it's intermural co-ed and composed of geology and astronomy grad students. we're the big bangers hehe. i got on base all three times i went to bat and scored twice, but i didn't have cleats and the bottoms of my shoes are pretty much worn flat. the first time i was running home as fast as i could because there were two coming in behind me and the ground is really hard and covered with a little layer of tiny rocks. and the top half of me was going faster than the bottom and i couldn't dig in because i didn't have cleats so i ended up sliding unintentionally. scraped up both my knees pretty nicely. but i scored. so i'm sore and was bleeding and my knees are pretty colors now but it was worth it. we won 12-4. much fun had by all. woo.
my new thesis kicks ass. i had a meeting with tom and john holloway to talk about it yesterday afternoon that lasted for an hour and we've got a game plan. i met with rick hervig this afternoon to tell him about it since he's on my committee and we changed it since last he knew about it. and he is going to let me compile all that is known about this martian meteorite
i'll be working with for my term paper for geochem, and is really excited about it. the paper will end up being at least part of chapter 1 of my thesis and it's great that i can get it done as part of a class requirement.
