Molecular Sadness

Well, I'll just be damned.  I was doing some research just yesterday on Watson, Crick, Wilkins, and Franklin to prepare for a blog I was going to write Ms. Franklin and all that Nobel Prize controversy, when Crick just up and dies today.   How devastating.  I'll write more about this later, I assure you.

Finished my loan stuff today!!!  Now all I have to do is sweet talk my rents into co-signing.  That will probably lower my rates and fees on the private loans.  Which is convenient since I see them tonight as we head to the beach as a family.  (Must not think dreadful thoughts re: no sunny hot beaches in UK.  Must concentrate of joy of chilly empty beautiful unspoiled beaches similar to Washington State.  Or concentrate on possible potential international boyfriend who will wisk me away on holiday to St. Tropez, Ibiza, Mykonos, etc etc.)  After that I send the loan forms directly to Paul at the Financial aid office at KCL and then....  it's freaking official.  I am moving to London!

I know it's cheesy, but last night was the Friends episode where they go to London for Ross's wedding.  I always get so excited to see London any way I can.  And I could name all the famous spots they went to.  I even know the difference between London Bridge and Tower Bridge.  Most people of the world do not seem to understand this (i.e. when searching for "london bridge" images on the net, get personal photos of Tower Bridge labeled as London Bridge by tourists who do not know difference.)  Tower Bridge is the massive bridge farther east that looks like it should be called London Bridge, since it's so high up and appears capable of "falling down."  London Bridge is actually more of just a plain old bridge.

Hmmm...  maybe could find a part time job as a walking tour guide.  Wouldn't that be fun!

I once heard an american tourist tell her son that "Henry the 8th was called Henry the 8th because he had 8 wives".
I didn't like to say anything.
