Last day of Introduction to Herpetology! It’s been a really awesome experience for DD to get to teach this class and me to sit in!

    DD#3 was freaking out that she might miss the last class due to a "no internet" message. (Cat unplugged the router.) She's pumped for class today (as always)!

Of all the places in the house for the grey and white cat to sleep,it has to be on DD’s black and Royal blue cheer uniform?

    And I’m sure if hers were white, the black cat would be on it!

    I really want to see her cheer. Is she posting any videos on her site? I'm an old cheerleader, and really loved competing. Good luck to her!

    And it's done-she says it went well. Although there were four students staying as far away from the snake as humanly possible :) (the topic was Ophidiophobia)

I love hearing comments around the corner like "we need to stop here at the snake house" :)

DD actually seems to have that rarest of all college animals-a functional group project where everyone is participating!

    DD#3 has already done a lot of her homework. Her idea of heaven - a class about snakes!

    I hope she's enjoying it. DD was really nervous this morning. She really wants it to go well.

Kid, I am not responsible for the digital stuff that comes with your textbook. If I had my way, you'd have a print book and problem sets just like I did back in the dark ages when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

There is little panic deeper than a kid who has spent the last three years building up a SciComm account and following-and who finds her account inaccessible. Twitter tech support is less than helpfu

DD12 is in her first college final-which is also her first ever final. I think I'm more nervous than she is!

    I think the anxiety over the first year college finals is worse than AP exams. Sounds like she's doing great!

Why would an Italian kids sitcom have music in English? Italian isSO

    Why would the Poles make a cartoon featuring Australian animals? It sounds soooo weird hearing koalas speak Polish.

Watching a biologist live tweet her dissertation defense is really cool (pre-scheduled tweets)-it's #morailsdefense if anyone wants to hop in!

It seems an easy question-when does conference registration END tonight? So far, I've called, e-mailed, and messaged four different people, and still don't have an answer. Ugh.
