Having just read about 10 articles about the legalization of marriage for everyone, I think this sums up my feelings:

late-night cooking [Jan. 6th, 2015|02:37 am]

I missed my calling as a chef at an all-night diner.

Last night I made lemon bread/cake from 2:30-3:30 am, which we then had for breakfast.

Tonight I'm making an Andes Mint chocolate cake for a party -- this way it can cool completely overnight before I frost it.

Why is baking late at night so much fun?

Just in case you haven't heard . . . humans landed something on a comet yesterday! The best narration of what happened is from xkcd. This is so cool!

Nobel week is one of my favorite weeks. Every day is a celebration of a new set of achievements!

While I don't want to get in the habit of just posting links here, this caught my eye during lunch today.

 Mild cases of the flu (?) are annoying, but I'm very thankful that it's my spring break.  This means I can shiver in peace with a library book, hot tea, and warm cat.

The job search is proceeding, but there are no positive results yet.  I applied for 5 more positions in the last 24 hours, so we can only hope that something will pan out.

As someone who has not yet had problems with being female while on the internet, I would like to point out the many, many people who have, or are the targets of constant harassment because of other reasons.  This is a terrific series of articles.

The main article

the first and second follow-up -- more are supposedly yet to come this week.

Edit: Part 3

 I did a research paper on genetically-modified (BT) corn in high school -- looking at benefits and risks.  Ever since, I've held a passing interest in the controversy over the issue, or rather the issue behind the controversy.  NPR's link to this article has finally pinpointed why the controversy bothers me so much: too many things are lumped together and discussed as one thing.  Why not take each genetically-modified crop as its own entity, and look carefully at the costs and benefits of each in a specific situation?  

Besides reading internet articles, these days I'm applying for jobs for next year, planning for this next semester, and writing letters of recommendations for my previous students.  The only advantage of being on "break" is additional opportunities to exercise.  Whoever said that professors only worked during the school day (and school year) hadn't met very many.
