I'm here. Really. Between a conference at Snowbird and a week-long vacation in Colorado (lovely, fun, lovely) I have been very detached from this here blog. But now life has slowed down a bit. Work this week is mostly consisting of glueing approximately 10,000 seeds to approximately 10,000 flat-tipped bamboo toothpicks (yes research has it's dull moments too). That means my brain power can be used for something else. I have found that glueing seeds to toothpicks is one activity that doesn't actually require use of the brain.
Anyway, pictures of Colorado are coming. Just wanted to let whomever reads this that I am still here. Though I am considering returning to Colorado.
