So I have been burying myself in my literature review basically to distract myself and avoiding the very real family crisis that is going on at the moment - given I am far, far away and feeling a little helpless. My mum has been told that her heart is so badly traumatised by her congestive heart failure (not to mention al the other things) that they cant replace the pacemaker that is currently failing - she wont survive any type of surgery and they basically they have sent her home with the expectation that she wont see out the year. So Im gutted. My supervisor has been good and said I can take time off to go home - but I need to time it right given I cant afford to make the trip more than once. I was trying distraction but apparently not that well.

Tired of gingham - so March! I am had long day at the Biosafety cabinet chickens so Eppendork is tired and thought about Abel Pharmboy's little titilating rant about vaccintions and sexy, sexy videos. I was going to have a
rant balanced discussion about the pro's and con's of vaccinating your beautiful children - very little con's lots of pro's to be very honest and how more discussion and talking with people who don't have 7 year degrees is a good thing (and I realise here that saying if you have Phd or a MD you are going to vaccinate your child is not always true but more likely I think if the PhD is in some form of Science). How ever I don't think it matters how much we the microbiologists, the medical plethora and other scientists say vaccinate your child those who really dont want to aren't going to. Which saddens me but not a lot you can do about it. I still think it does border on child abuse - when a disease is preventable it should be prevented. Fullstop. End of story. If you want a nice discussion about how vaccines work ToasterSunshine has one. I am just too sleepy.

I wonder if the person giving a presentation on their past year or two's work should feel insulted that a lead PI nodded off during their presentation? What do you think?

I love this song - PJ Harvey rocks the house too.
I am up to eyeballs in Lit review at mo - so not too much blogging going on unfortunately.
PS fave Nick Cave song - Into my arms - seriously good song - the man's a genius.
