10:53 am - The First of Many Pimpings
I have a new blog post that contains a link to my latest article. This week, in the print version, the blockquote was of my words, not my interviewee's! I wrote something blockquotable ("Epidemics can induce genetic change, in essence causing evolution on a small scale.")! Also included in today's post is a short explanation of prions. Remember to please leave blog-related comments (and questions/suggestions for future posts) on the blog, not here.

And now for a few other orders of business.

Lost fans! If you live in L.A. or happen to accidentally board a plane on its way there mid-April, you should check out Destination: L.A., a fundraiser for the Children's Defense Fund, California Chapter, J.J. Abrams' favorite charity. Meet your fellow fans and possibly some special guests, and participate in the auction. Maybe you can own a copy of Watership Down TOUCHED BY JOSH HOLLOWAY OMG. Or one of Shannon's hairclips. Or one of the hairs J.J. pulled out when he saw the impressionist CGI polar bear. Okay, I have no clue what they're auctioning off, but the people behind this shindig have organized many a successful shindig in the past, so if this is your thing, check out the website, read the FAQ (why does this always make me think of TWoP?), and register.

Wonderfalls DVDs are out! Go buy them!

In conclusion, if you don't like Veronica Mars, then you can't be my friend. Okay, kidding, you can be my friend. But I'll be making mean faces at you behind your back.

(I think I've discovered the slant of this journal. My regular diary is all about girls and food. This one? Science and fandom.)

Are you going to the party? I'll be there. I'm talking to Drew later in the week and am hoping to get him to donate a signed script or two to the auction.

I never even considered it. I'll be knee-deep in my Master's thesis by then, and I'm not rolling in disposable income just yet. One of these days, however, I would love to go to one of these things.

How much longer till we see Drew's Lost episode?

I don't like Veronica Mars. What a heinous bitch.

Just kidding. She's my baby.

I love you because we love the same TV. I mean, you're the one who made me watch Buffy.

I love you for other reasons as well, many of them centering around your sexiness.

Yeah, I'd never seen it until you told me to do so. Once I saw it, I was absolutely hooked.

Heh. The Watership Down thing cracked me up when I saw it, because mmaresca had just gotten me to read that book this past summer. And it's awesome. So awesome. I adore that book.

In conclusion, if you don't like Veronica Mars, then you can't be my friend.

Hehe. You can't get rid of me that easily!

We read it in ninth grade English, and I was always way ahead of the assigned reading, I loved it so much. I've wanted to read it again since it made its appearance on the show. I mean, hello: It's about BUNNIES!

I wish I had read it in high school. It's brilliant. I don't even remember what I read in ninth grade...

You should write about food here. I love talking about food. Girls, I could do without.

Okay, kidding, you can be my friend. But I'll be making mean faces at you behind your back.

That's ok, you should see the faces I make behind yours.

I've never read Watership Down. But ever since seeing Donnie Darko, that's what it makes me think of.

How the crap did you end up here?

And I had a regular diary until I stopped writing in it regularly. There was just no time anymore. My longass narrative entries are what I used to post over there.

Um, it's possible I was tired and in the mood for reading but had no books that suited my current mood...and maybe I, uh, decided to go back and read all the lj entries that happened when I was in Russia. Maybe something like that happened. Or maybe I'm just a very creepy person. Your pick.
