These days past have been spent, in their freer hours, watching yet more exciting episodes of Bleach, the only downside being that I don't know anyone else at Assumption who watches any anime. Back in high school, several anime fans clustered together each morning by the guidance office, and there was even an anime club. Sadly, I didn't consider myself a fan back then, and opportunity's knock went unheeded. Now, though, I can proudly attest to having watched the first 150 episodes on YouTube. Give me a month more, and I'll be done all the current episodes.
While Bleach lays a heavy claim on my time, I have happily kept up with my work without difficulty. Much of my evening went to a short current events assignment for my Human Heredity class; and as I was looking for an article to write on, what did I come across but left handed DNA. Almost all DNA is right handed (if you ascended it like a spiral staircase, your right hand would be on the railing), but it is often drawn left handed by mistake, as is documented by Tom Schneider of the Left Handed DNA Hall of Fame, a well crafted site which both biologists and average Joes like me will enjoy. As a numismatist, I was surprised to learn that the Two Pound commemorative coin issued by the United Kingdom in 2003 to commemorate the discovery of the double helix structure has correctly handed DNA on the reverse, but left handed DNA on the thick edge. As a Catholic, I was delighted to learn that RichardDawkins.net, website of the famed arch atheist, also featured left handed DNA in its logo for a time. True, it was clearly his web designers and not Dawkins himself who weren't thinking too clearly at the time, but the error is delightfully ironic just the same.
As for SGA, I will leave it to my fellow greyhounds to make up their minds over what course of action to take with regard to the website devoted to malice and slander which has proved such a bother on campus, since I have already represented myself in the senate and am tired of debating the issue. On the lighter side, this afternoon, we were debating over what freebie SGA clothing we should all receive. Bored by the suggestions of t-shirts or sweatpants, I suggested- SGA bling! Ah, where would that venerable body be without my sense of whimsy?
Thanksgiving does not excite me very much, which again places me in quite a different camp from all of my friends, who could use a good break. Chiefly, I am thankful for the Faith God has given me, what wisdom He has given me, for the happiness I am able to instill in my family and friends, and what poetic ability He has given me.
