Good Monday Afternoon

Good Monday Afternoon.

I could say I had a very long busy weekend, but I didn't.

I planned on working yesterday... but I didn't.

I looked out the window. I saw the dreary rain. It wasn't cold, but cold enough for a jacket. And I noticed my house was quite warm. So I closed my paper blinds and went  back to bed.

Actually I figured out that I could do what I wanted to get done at home. I spent an hour typing up some instructions yesterday. I also made up a detailed list of what I needed to do today. That took me all of 45 minutes to do.

So... I am officially finished up in my prior workgroup. GLORY!! *lee cartwheeling out of lab*

And now I can concentrate on my new workgroup. I have been here for some 6 weeks. Hopefully the other group will leave me be!

Nerdy Moment. So... besides the release of Kendrick Lamar's new CD last week (which left me close to fainting), something else happened.

(Please allow me a Dr. LadyLee nerd moment. Thank you).

I ordered a special book, something that could be a good reference for my new position. It came in:

My secretary peered at me curiously as I hugged it close and did a happy dance. I even sniffed the book pages, lol.

"Look at the structures," I said.

Oh that is some loveliness. 2238 pages of loveliness. 500 page index.  200 pages bibliography.

Ohhhhhhh, that is going to be some GOOD reading.

Sorry, I just love structures. My doctorate is in organic chemistry, and I don't do that anymore. I could sit around and draw the structures ALLLL day long. All day long. All the live long day!

*lee holding book closer and humming an old negro spiritual*

I cannot WAIT to read it. I almost took that book home this weekend. But it's as big and heavy as a telephone book. So I left it at work. Sigh.

Okay. That's it for my nerd moment. Back to regular programming.

Song of the Week. "Living All Alone" by Phyllis Hyman..

I love old early 90s R&B diva videos. The women are DRESSED all the way up. Sharp. The hair is perfectly coiffed. And the hats. My goodness. Such a throwback.

RIP Phyllis Hyman. It's been 20 years this year since her death. Gone but not forgotten.

That's it for me. I HOPE to post all week. I have lots of pics to load up. But we will see.

You have a good week on purpose.

  1. I can relate to smelling a new book. Thought I was the oddball doing that. I discovered others do it too. Kinda like a new car smell thing LOL.

    Gurl have your nerd moment. I never took a chemistry in my academic life. :)

    I LOVE me some Phyllis. She is my all time favorite singer. Living All Alone came out in 1986. I was a teen going through it and I was all into this song. I think it really triggered my poetry. I started writng poetry at 16. First poem was entitled Alone.


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
