06:11 pm - The Fifth of Many Pimpings
Long-time readers may know that the original purpose for this journal, before it became my fandom journal, was to pimp Protein Angst. Well, after over four months of laziness, I tell you a story of why science is awesome. It involves potassium channels, T cells, and autoimmune disorders. And a surprise guest star.

Let the pimping commence!

hobviously has some great BSG icons, including a series I inspired with a screencap and a Shakespeare line.

the_royal_anna has a lovely post about Doctor Who and the relationship between the Doctor and Rose.

spectralbovine (hey, that's me!) has posted a metric fuckload of Canadian music at audiography, for those of you who missed it the first time.

valancy (a.k.a. Miss Fancy Valancy (tm starspentswell)) has a multifandom post with icon and fic recs. Warning, the post contains HPB SPOILERS, so if you haven't read the book, go directly to her journal and don't click the cut-tag.

persnicketiervm tells us about the time Kristen Bell sent her a birthday gift, complete with pictures.

matchboxslayer tells us about the time he met Kristen Bell and she didn't punch him in the face.

horsefacehannah would like to know, "What's the most violent PG/PG13 movie you can think of?"

wisteria_ has an updated Veronica Mars: A Love Letter.

In conclusion, Kevin Kline.

I think you put that there just so that I wouldn't scroll the names and be sad that mine wasn't there.

Oh shoot, that was me. I have to log out of my computer every so often because my friends are curious and have no scruples.

Oh, I forgot to thank you for the music first time around. I am seriously addicted to some of those songs/groups now.

You win at having the very best VM icon I have ever seen.

Then one day he comes across an article in The Lancet from, like, 1983. This woman with multiple sclerosis was stung by a scorpion. And for about a day, she was kind of sick and all from being stung by a scorpion.

But then? Her multiple sclerosis symptoms went away. For two whole months, she was symptom-free. Or maybe it was two whole weeks. Then her symptoms came back, however.


Yeah, my Dad has multiple sclerosis (secondary progressive, he's basically quadriplegic at this point) and years ago someone suggested we get a whole mass of bees and sting him with them every day. If boggarts were real, do you know what mine would be? It'd be a great big mass of SWARMING BEES.

I liked the marijuana suggestion much better.

It seems most of the really good news for MS is more about stopping the disease from getting bad than being able to help those who are already in bad shape. Bad news for my Dad, but it makes me less scared for myself and my brother (because we have a slightly upped chance- my father's sister has it as well, though not as bad as he does.)

Hey, would you mind leaving this comment on the blog post? I have the blog on my résumé and I'd like to make it look like people actually read it and get something out of it. Thanks.

I'm sorry about your dad, and I hope you're safe!

Hi!...er. I am a random person who doesn't know you. But I ran across your lj at work (while doing the whole, "there is nothing to do here, time to randomly look at other people's friend-pages") and I read your science article. I think it's 1. a fantastically awesome story; I love interesting science writing and 2. very well and clearly written (so I hope you get noticed by employers!). I'm a Liberal Arts-type myself, finished my high school Physics & Chem options and went right into the most history/philosophy/writing-heavy program at my school - but good science writing is endlessly fascinating for me. A book by Simon Singh got me hyperactively excited about prime numbers. Anyway, your article piqued my interest and I scrolled down a bit in your LJ - and I keep bumping into interesting posts. Would you mind awfully if I friended you? I must admit that I've never watched VMars, despite the endless pimpage from my own flist - but hopefully you can overlook that transgression.
Anyways, apologies for this rambling comment - I just didn't want to friend without saying hello and asking if you mind.
(p.s. clicked on your music post and Tegan and Sara! Hawksley! Metric! Stars! hurray hurray hurray!)

Hi! Thank you so much! Would you mind leaving a comment on the blog post itself? Cause that's what potential employers will be seeing (it's probably best they don't read my LiveJournal and see how crazy I am about television).

I don't mind being friended at all, especially by someone with a pretty Belle icon. I might be able to overlook your lack of indoctrination into the Cult of Mars. Maybe.

Hurray for Canadian music, indeed!

Thank you for your comment! It made me smile.

It's so weird when you mention audiography, 'cause muruch, the moderator of audiogasms (watch SHP be too lazy to tag things) is loooooonnnnngggg time on-line friend of mine, and I heard about the community from her, and it's like two of my online worlds colliding.
