ER A-to-Z (For Ms. H)

Ok...I've been running myself down working on the Science, INC grant (due March 1), worrying about content management systems, fretting about finishing other grant-funded projects, and generally being too busy to think about anything, but of course, I've managed to find time for another mindless indulgence...hmmm....yum....mindless indulgences... Thanks Ms. H...

O - One wish you have: be just and fear not (oh is that a quote?)

P - Phobias: I don’t think any of my concerns hit the level of phobia…I’m changing this category to Poem you can recite from memory: Lord Byron:
Talk to me not of a name sweet in story,
The days of our youth are the days of our glory,
And the myrtle and ivy of sweet two and twenty,
Are worth all your laurels though ever so plenty

(provided ample justification for my lack of interest in academics as an undergrad…)

Q - Favorite Quote: "Real strength never impairs beauty or harmony, but it often bestows it; and in everything imposingly beautiful, strength has much to do with the magic." ~ Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
