New Leases

How to begin this first post?  Well as we all know MySpace is a dead medium that I used to blog in, write short posts about near-death experiences or political rants or just rants.  However, I heard from a younger source that FB is also about to die and that the next big thing is Instagram, as I have never claimed to be technologically literate I will not be joining that for a while yet.  Thus I will continue on Blogger for as long as possible before I consider tweeting or instagramming (?).  In the dark recesses of my mind I hear a little voice say that "instagramming" is correct.  I dare you to tell me why it is not correct.  No really because it just seems crazy to type it that way.

I did have a previous blog but that has been shut down and I will start from zero - again.  Attempting once more to figure out what type of writer I am, if I am a writer, or just a ranter.  Lets hope its the former and not the latter!

Here are the details...

I'm still in Lubbock, still working in science-related matters, still attempting to lose the Lubbock 15 (not an easy feat and not 15), and still dreaming of being a super-spy with a shy, nerdy alter-ego (the science-related work) but still only doing the science-related work.  This blog I hope will keep most of you updated on the exciting life I lead of protein crystallization and amateur gardening/photography/knitting/painting/drawing/writing.

I also promise to not use any full names in my posts especially without your written permission but first initials are fair game.  Events can and will be modified to protect others.  And please do not include names of children or any minors (<18) in comments or your rants in the comments section.  Believe me the protection of children of family and friends is always more important than any thing I may have to say or you have to say to me.

Hmmm....so far not so funny.  It'll get better.  It always does...


  1. Agreed - I think it's instagramming too. Not there yet either, don't know that I will be.

    Congratulations on the new blog. I might have to do something similar now that my husband reads mine and therefore I can't be honest with my thoughts - you know?

    1. Yeah I know what you mean but I saw an awesome quote the other day - "You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better."

      Gonna use that :)

  2. Read somewhere today that Instagramming is starting to fade already. Also once you post a picture on there they can use it however they like.

    Super Spy?? You aint spose to tell.

    1. LOL! That's why I'm telling it's the best cover ;)

      Yeah Instagram had to change their policy I think, I saw that too - another reason why I don't do that.
