1. Revolutionary Association of Women in Afghanistan. I should seek out this bookstore regardless of whether I can make it to that event. (link courtesy of izzerwurst.

2. Tonight I attended my second Tea. Said goodbye (for now) to zenthia; played in my first game of I Never. Brief as it was. Word to the wise, Franklin's potstickers, not so good. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I had to go to work. I am consistently surprised, given what things are like on the roads in this town, how many wonderfully nice people there are.

3. I wish I could understand the entirety of an article in Neuropsychologia that begins: Neuroimaging studies in healthy participants have implicated anterior temporal lobe regions and the fusiform gyrus in repetition priming and semantic priming. It's hard to understand the entirety when you can't understand the first sentence. That said, Operation Subscription Swap is in the planning stages. Anyone know which scientific journals are good? Of the inexpensive variety?

4. At 8:02 AM (I think), happy birthday to me. Cracker song stuck in my head.

Finally, a poem, written by someone else, but not so much as a poem:

see chameleon?
lying there, in the sun?
all things to everyone.
run, run away.

Happy amniotic fluid withdraw day! Send your mother flowers, she did the work! ;)

Thanks for coming to tea and the rad CDs, and feel free to go to many more teas! You even can pretend to be me. The trick to me-ness is the sober-drunken swagger. Once you master that, you've got it in the bag!

Jul. 30th, 2003 01:07 am (UTC)
Dammit, I should of thought of that in advance. I will have to call her and thank her for doing all the work. I will thank dad too, for


or something.

I hope you enjoy the CDs!!! Bon Voyage! I can't wait to hear everything about med school.

And I learn too late that your parents are reading your live journal. Hopefully I can delete my journal entry.
Jul. 30th, 2003 01:21 pm (UTC)

i thought it was funny and not over the line, but this way it can be a SURPRISE. :D
Jul. 30th, 2003 03:54 am (UTC)
8:02 AM is the right time. A very happy birthday to you. I couldn't decide if you wanted a Winchester or a boat, motor and trailer so my gift giving may be a little late. In any event I'll take care of your new boat or whatever for you. What are dads for.
Jul. 30th, 2003 05:56 am (UTC)
Re: Birthday
We can sail that boat right up the Potomac! I can't wait. Send me a picture. :)
Jul. 30th, 2003 01:50 pm (UTC)
Re: Birthday
Soon as we can pick it up we'll get it delivered. take a look at the sales brochure!!

Jul. 30th, 2003 04:12 am (UTC)
Happy birthday! And regarding your scientific journal swap, the big problem is most of those things are crazy expensive. :( In my very odd job, one of the things I take joy in, though, is finding odd journal titles ... the Whole Dog Journal ... Mosquito News ... Potato Chipper

Hope you have a great day today!
Jul. 30th, 2003 05:58 am (UTC)
Well, we were thinking like one of us gets Scientific American (middling) and one gets Psychology Today (cheap) but I went and tried to do some research. I don't want something derivative or too watered down. And we both like psychology. *flares hands*

Thanks! We promise not to do anything too mean to puck_eater if he visits.
Jul. 30th, 2003 04:48 am (UTC)
happy bday!
Jul. 30th, 2003 05:58 am (UTC)
hehe right back atcha :) well more or less!
Jul. 30th, 2003 05:12 am (UTC)
"I Never" is just about the meanest game, ever.
Jul. 30th, 2003 06:00 am (UTC)
I'm not sure I'm so good at it, since I have no nefarious intent and my life is an open book.

Also I couldn't drink last night, which really sort of defeats the purpose.
Jul. 30th, 2003 06:31 am (UTC)
Oh, yeah, playing "I never" without drinking, there's no real point.

Your life being an open book actually works to your detriment in this situation, though.

But anyways.
Jul. 30th, 2003 06:00 am (UTC)
Happy, Happy Birthday !
Have a wonderful day. Wish I could be with you.
Jul. 30th, 2003 06:01 am (UTC)
Re: Happy, Happy Birthday !
Aww! I wish you could too! Soon, I will visit.
Jul. 30th, 2003 06:31 am (UTC)
Happy b'day.
Jul. 30th, 2003 06:42 am (UTC)
thank you :)
Jul. 30th, 2003 06:34 am (UTC)
Happy Birthday!!!
I hope your day is fun! :D
Jul. 30th, 2003 06:43 am (UTC)

Jul. 30th, 2003 06:45 am (UTC)
That's Terrence, he's the Birthday Wishing Icon. I have no idea who he is, I found him on Google's Image Search. :D

i don't have any subscriptions yet, i'm trying to figure out which ones i want. there are some cool social psychology journals out there that might be interesting too. do you know of any you'd recommend? basically my friend and i are going to try to wach get a subscription and then swap them via mail so we cut the cost.

happy birthday!
Jul. 30th, 2003 08:33 am (UTC)
Happy birthday!!!112

Hmm. You might try the library. Especially the University library. Sometimes colleges will get subscriptions to scientific journals and the like. Assuming they have some, you could at least browse and see which ones you like.
Jul. 30th, 2003 01:41 pm (UTC)
thank you!!


oh for the days when i worked in VA Tech's library. i did so much interesting personal research back then.
Jul. 30th, 2003 09:58 am (UTC)
I'll join the throng in wishing you
Happy Day!
Jul. 30th, 2003 10:08 am (UTC)
Happy Birthday!
Jul. 30th, 2003 11:14 am (UTC)
You like black and white? I like black and white. Run, run away.

Happy birthday!!
Jul. 30th, 2003 11:28 am (UTC)
Happy Birthday!!!!!! I can't wait to see you to celebrate.

And I so love that Slade song. Someone should send it to me on mp3.
Jul. 31st, 2003 09:59 pm (UTC)
i could send it to you, but how? or i could just make you another mix and put that on it. ;)
Jul. 30th, 2003 12:50 pm (UTC)
Many happy returns of the day! Woo!
Jul. 30th, 2003 12:57 pm (UTC)
"Scientific American" strikes a fairly decent balance between journalism and "raw" science. For more casual reading, try "Discover". For psychology, the best off-the-shelf magazine is, unsurprisingly, "Psychology Today".

For more serious, "primary source" reading, get "Science". "Nature" is very biosciences-oriented; it'll probably be a mix of things that are directly related to your interests, and things you have zero interest in. Both are, unfortunately, very expensive.

The American Psychological Association publishes a whole ton of journals, some of which might be of interest. (There's one on neuropsychology, for instance.)
Jul. 30th, 2003 01:43 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the tips! I checked out the APA publications last night but wrote them off as too expensive. (For non-members, they can get up to and over $100...) I appreciate your advice on this. :)
Jul. 30th, 2003 08:38 pm (UTC)
Now that it is almost not your birthday any longer- happy day to you! May all your days be as succulent as possible!

(here is where I sing you the Underwater Birthday song) Unfortunately- a lot is lost in the translation.

Jul. 30th, 2003 09:52 pm (UTC)
happy belated birthday!

yay, franklin's! i trust you've gone into the store. :D
Jul. 30th, 2003 10:02 pm (UTC)
thank you!

you know what's stupid? i've never gone in the store. i didn't even see it the first time i went there. i'm oblivious.
Jul. 31st, 2003 08:34 am (UTC)
You know, I should remember when your birthday is because you turned 21 while we were filming SRTSE in Ohio. Unfortunately, I have trouble remembering when that was.

Happy Birthday (belated) anyway.
