bon voyage

i'm off for beaufort for the aforementioned pharmacology conference, aka pharmtastic!, aka nerd immersion program (nip for short).

goals:

1. try not to fall asleep in more than half of the lectures (and yes, i will be keeping track).

2. try not to be too harsh about the abominable fashions i am likely to see. [after all, as my mother pointed out, einstein wasn't such a great dresser, you know.]

3. avoid getting sunburnt

4. avoid getting any speeding tickets

5. learn something.

all right, on to miles and miles of I-40, where i can appreciate the beautiful landscape of trashy-looking billboards and multitudes of speeding pickup trucks with pro-bush stickers (if not confederate flags). i think i may need some caffeine.
