Beer, Science and Pizza

My new boss came to town yesterday to give a talk, so I had an interesting mix of worlds: new boss and old boss hanging out with me, the chair of my thesis committee, my boss' wife, and a few pitchers of beer. Then I got a ride home with the chair of my thesis committee in his new BMW M3 convertible with heated leather seats and an engine that can accelerate from 0-60 in 4 seconds. I'm not a car person but this car was pretty sweet. I wouldn't want to drive it though; it might detract from my love for my own 1989 Toyota Camry that can accelerate from 0-60 in about 15 minutes.

My Studly Hubby has figured out how to make The Most Amazing Pizza in the Whole Wide World. He puts olive oil on the crust (reminiscent of the wet Neopolitan-style pizza we had at Punch's a few weeks ago) and pineapple and organic pepperoni and jalepinos and pepperoncini. MMmmm, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. If we knew the first thing about running a restaraunt I think we would do well to open a pizza place, but not in Minnesota. They only like cardboard and ketchup in Minnesota.

when are you moving? it's much better being a post doc than a grad student. :)

I'm glad you say it's better! I've heard the opposite from a few people but I'm hoping for the best. We are tentatively planning to move Aug 1 (our lease here is up then) but that may change depending on what we find when we go there in June to look for a place to live.
