Who the hell are all you people, anyway?

Most of the names here I recognize, but some I don’t, and I bet they don’t recognize me.  So I’ll introduce myself, and I expect the same from you.

I’m Owen.  Met Andrew in biology classes, through Meg, sorta, but generally just somehow fell in with that particular bad crowd.  I count Andrew as a particularly good friend.  Now I’m in North Carolina trying to do something with my college degree.

Oh! Oh! I want to participate!

I’m Andrew. I just recently left Boulder after getting a BA (in biochemistry, strangely… stupid university). Now I’m down in Santa Barbara, CA, about to begin work on a Bio-Engineering PhD.
It seems that all my friends in college were in MCDB, Physics, or Engineering… which were not the fields in which I ended up getting a degree. *laughs*

Well, here goes…

I’m Teisha. I met Andrew through Josh at one of his parties less than a week ago. I’m stuck at CU Boulder because I declared too many majors. When I escape, I’m thinking of heading to vet school at CSU for at least another four years… or becoming a cheap, paper-back novelist and hiding away in San Fran.

Hey, I’m Andy. I actually went to the same high school as Andrew, though we never really started hanging out till my second year of college. I’m still going to be at CU for a while, except this next semester when I’m in Denmark.

I’m Jim. I have the dubious honor of knowing Andrew the longest (8 years). I went to highschool with him, and roomed with him the first year of college. Oh, I am also engaged to Meg.

I’m Megan. Engaged to Gilvoro. I was an MCDB major and I’m now gainfully employed at Eppendorf-5 Prime in Gunbarrel. How glamorous! I have realized that I don’t like research all that much, so I’m planning on going to law school one day and being a biotech patent lawyer. I met Owen when I was a freshman and he was lab partner. I met Druid when I yelled at him in Genetics. I met Teisha at a UA event. I think I met Andy through the UA, too . . . and I met Gilvoro while he was playing EverCrack, living with Druid, and too busy to acknowledge my existence. 🙂

ah yes the good old day 😉

Oh, that’s nothing, Jenny and mine’s relationship started when I made fun of her band-aid 😀

Owen - August 21st, 2004 at 3:05 pm

Ha! I think I remember you telling me that. Of course, Owen, our relationship started with us disliking one another. And with you, one day early in Intro lab, holding up a tube labeled “PMS.” And then saying something to the effect of, “They’ve finally isolated it!” I didn’t know whether to laugh or be offended. 🙂

ShortSpeedFreak - August 22nd, 2004 at 12:01 am

Yeah, you were still serious back then.

Owen - August 22nd, 2004 at 3:37 pm

I still think you were an actress hired by Andrew to say such things.

Owen - August 24th, 2004 at 9:38 am

I’m Jen! I suppose I’ll be the one to fess up to having a huge crush on Andrew during high school, due to his immense brain power and charming hair. As we hung out more the mystique must have dropped away, and now he’s a regular friend. I guess the change of hairstyle ruined the relationship for me 😉

Another shiny copper penny for you if you don’t tell him the truth!

Just read a fascinating (if lengthy) essay on disruptive technology and the future of scientific publishing. Well worth the read!


Just wanted to share Mint.com’s Visual Guide to Deflation, which is quite explanatory.

Okay, I’ll admit that it’s entirely possible that I am the last person to learn about this website*, but it’s really addictive.
