Random Stuff (Because I Couldn’t Think of a Better Title)

Scraping frost off the car windows is a pain in the arse. What I need is a super-duper powered hair dryer. At least I got some exercise–but that doesn’t mean I liked it.

Also, I have now figured out why the parking lot during the weekdays is always full no matter how early I come to school. The med students with their ridiculously shiny SUVs have early morning classes.

Daptomycin, an antibiotic that kills gram-positive bacteria by messing with their ion channels, has now been approved to be used for VISA (vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus). As a pessimist, I’m wondering when the bug will start developing resistance to the “new” (actually it’s been around since the 1980’s but people were still working out the side-effects) drug. Some people just don’t understand the word “overuse.”

Hoarded Ordinaries. A weblog by someone who lives in Keene, New Hampshire. I had a good laugh at this entry: Not-quite-sex in the not-quite-city. Apparently she also went to the Pumpkin Festival, but she has pictures up. (Whereas I still have to get mine developed. Yeah I’m such a luddite, but I don’t have money to buy a digital camera right now.) And while I was just content with soaking up the atmosphere, she and her friends were trolling the streets for hunks.
