አንደኛውን ዓመት በማስመልከት

ይህን ልዩ የበዓል ፕሮግራም ስፖንሰር (ንጉሡ ነው ወይስ ሰራዊቱ “ሰ” በነገራችን ላይ?) አድርጎ ያቀረበላችሁ ቃሊቲ ብረታ ብረት ፋብሪካ ነው:: ለምን? እኔንጃ!

  • እንዲያው ምን ባደርግ ነው አሜሪካ አሜሪካ መሽተት የምችለው? And I mean that in the most literal sense. Don’t go thinking about skunks now; I would like to believe of myself as a metro-sexual, although it does not seem that way. Rather, I am talking about that smell/close family of smells that we detect on and associate with ከውጭ ከመጣ ሰው ጋር::  ይባስ ብሎ ባለፈው ሹራቤ ላይ mercaptoethanol ተረጨብኝ::
  • I have come to see that a dishwasher is the epitome of “all sound and fury, signifying nothing”. ሲጮህና ሲንኳኳ ከርሞ ታጥቦ የተሰጠውን ዕቃ እንኳ ማጽዳት አይችልም::  On the other hand, I can’t fail but be impressed by scrubbing bubbles: now that is superpowers. ደግሞ “ሸፋዳ” የሚለውን ቃል እዚህ ጽሁፍ ውስጥ መጠቀም ካለብን I guess the onus has got to fall on automatic sliding doors. Curb your enthusiasm, will ya? I am just passing by.
  • I have lost some weight and I plan to take full advantage of it. ቤት ስሄድ ሆድ ለማባባት ወፍሬ ስመለስ ደግሞ to confound expectations
  • Things I want to say when I am in ኢትዮጵያ: “ሴቶቻችሁ እንዴት ቆንጆ ሆነዋል ባክህ?!”; point to a random G+several floors and “አሁን ይህን ለመሰራት ምን ያህል ብር ይፈጅ ይሆን?”
  • It ain’t fun, going legit. Microsoft deactivated my Office, is asking me to pay 99.99. How can I be sure that all proceeds go to the Bill and Melinda foundation?
  • Speaking of Bill, fucking Dish kept breaking up. Hardly watched 30 minutes of Bill Maher’s comeback episode
  • Sometimes it’s nice to go where everybody knows your name; and pronounce it right.
  • My brother says to me “A ና F ለመስጠት ከሆነ ባትመጣ ይሻላል” Goes on to mention how Makerere’s scientists managed to change waste matter to fuel. አዬ! Makerere 3rd in Africa, እኛ ፩፮ኛ, እንዴት ታወዳድረናለህ? This despite the comments made by the president of our university when he got wind of the rankings: “THEን ፩፮ ጊዜ ልቾ  በሉት! ከአንድ አስከ አስርማ አናጣም!” All things considered, my heart is so full of hope for the future and my eyes full of sleep at present. Weariness.
  • Weariness keeping me from reading as much as I would like to. Seminal publications on Science, The Economist, Playboy,…  I wish I spent much less time wandering aimlessly across  the internet.
  • I have become/continued to be so error-prone. ሰው ከስህተቱ ይማራል ይባላል ስህተት ከኔ ሊማር ምንም አልቀረውም::
  • I still can’t wrap my head around how geek glasses came to be all the rage. Makes one a believer in the human capacity to change (to the starting point) I am wearing glasses with the thickest frames since 11th grade. I lost my old one to the water.
  • My boy getting mad poonanny; a dedication for him:

ቆይ ግን አስቴር ካቡ ላይ “…እሸው የኔ ጌታ…” ነው የምትለው?

አልጠረጠርንም እንደምትርቂን

German beers drunk. Now ready to tumble into bed. Coming as it did at the end of the week on which I finished Stalingrad, I just know it is not going to end well for the Germans.

We will see tomorrow.

    wow, a year huh, you atleast you had mercaptoethanol spilled on you, have no idea what it smells like but in my book it is better than ammonia spilled all over your scrubs ( I am trying to imply another stuff which happens to me a lot in my line of work if you know what I mean),
    More time reading huh.. well why did you leave Fifty shades of Gray from Christians point of view out?.. (wink)…I didnot read it in case you are wondering ( that is for you T)

      አሜን! በሰላም ያድርሰን! ከብረው ይቆዩን ከብረው …

      trust me, ammonia holds its nose in the presence of mercaptoethanol.

      i am now reading fifty shades of grey, from christian’s dick’s point of view. i would like to share an excerpt:

      “… this is madness. pure, unadulterated, tractionless, intractable madness. my owner has been tricked by, who else, his brain, into thinking that i somehow enjoy this. I DON’T. like, totally. personally, i find it as cruel as waterboarding. soon as i see the light of day and have taken a breath or two, he is like ‘no slacking; you are going in again’ …”

      Biochemistry and analysis of erotic books. And I thought the only conversation I couldn’t follow was football.

    ሰ is fine. It seems to be the default unless specified.

    Google Docs works for me. It has most (if not all) of the features you will need. It constantly saves. You can get previous versions of your file. No more “Word crashed before saving my file”. You can export your docs to files too. Open Office is another one. Latex is nice too. You leave the mundane work to it (formatting, content, page breaks). It’s well suited for formulas. It has a learning curve but it’s worth it. Word sucks for writing research papers. Not just MS. All of them suck.

    Happy anniversary!
