Laptop, laptop*

*Sung to the tune of "Backpack, backpack" from Dora The Explorer.

Lookie, what finally arrived this afternoon!

Muchos thankies to Team Boch for the very generous donation to the "Save The Eina" Fund which made this possible and for lending me their computers for the past year or so.

Eating more fish is supposedly one of the keys to healthful eating

Tuna and olive pasta seemed like a step in the right direction. Wish I'd gotten something else though. There's something odd about the smell --- there's nothing wrong with the taste and none of the ingredients has gone bad or anything --- but it's just not...appetizing.

Adding insult to injury

Poor blue chair! As if it weren't enough that it doesn't match the surrounding chairs, its back and seat don't even match.

Today's accomplishment

Completed the crossword puzzle in record time (for me at least).

Redeeming value

I'm normally not a fan of this obelisk, but I've seen the light.

Pleasant surprise

OC me likes to grab a copy of every free newspaper and magazine I come across. Sometimes OC-ness pays off.

Everything you [n]ever wanted to know about the metabolic syndrome

I put together and organized the content for this diagram and one of my groupmates (with some help from the rest of the group) made it big and purrrty.

By George, I think that's what they call teamwork! The Wonder Pets would be proud.

Science fair about obesity

Our group's topic is the metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic pathways

After studying biochemistry for four years, I should know this by heart. Ah, if only it were so!

Am already on my way to school but the moon has yet to go bye-bye.

The class before lunch ended early

So early in fact that the school restaurant wasn't serving lunch yet and we had to wait until the clock hit 11:00.

Finished eating 45 minutes before the next class, so decided to hang out in the lecture hall which I currently have all to myself.

Does this qualify as discrimination?

They're looking for volunteers for a research project that involves doing an MRI of your brain (which I've wanted to try for awhile) while you're being asked questions. They'll pay you at least 300SEK, possibly more depending on how the study turns out. 
The only thing standing in my way: you have to be right-handed.

Coca-Cola light plus green tea

Bought this almost a month ago and finally managed to muster the courage to drink it. I was pleasantly surprised. It tastes just like the regular stuff but is a tad less sweet.

These may not get my paper written

But hopefully the sugar will give my brain a boost

Good thing

...that I didn't spot this until after I'd eaten up all my fries. Well, to be honest, it probably wouldn't have deterred me anyway.

It's time to get cracking!

Went book shopping on Friday and planned to do some heavy-duty studying over the weekend. 5 days later I've finally removed the plastic wrap that The Cell came in...progress!

Note the English-Swedish medical dictionary in the middle. While the medium of instruction is Swedish, most of the course literature will be in English. Hmm...boon or bane?
