i don’t think i can sleep with the previous post being my last of the night. recounting what happened last night has been in of itself a little traumatizing.

to return balance to the universe, i submit two of the cutsiest photos i’ve taken in months. in fact, if cute was measured in adipose cell counts, these photos are like starr jones (prior to the stomach stapling, of course.)

some background: we finally sold our beloved fish the other week. now, we’re proud owners of 4 adorable gerbils. they’re all sisters.

since she studies at home, christina probably spends more time talking to these gerbils than she does to me on a daily basis.

(for now, they’re still “the gerbils” – they’re “purebreds”, which means we can’t tell them apart. and yes, yes, we did in fact drive an hour each way to buy purebred gerbils. they were cheaper! in any case, we’re currently soliciting name suggestions that don’t draw inspiration from national steak sauce brands.)

    Hi, your gerbils are great but I’m afraid I have a question about something totally unrelated :) .

    I am a college senior and will be graduating very soon. I have studied mostly CS and some biology and am really interested in this new CSBi graduate program that you are apparently enrolled in.

    I was wondering if you could give me some pointers on what the admissions staff considers to be most important…I have done quite a bit of research and other stuff and am thinking of ways to condense all of that in a 2-page statement. Were there any things that you had not expected before you applied? Also…do most admitted students have a paper published?

    Sorry if I spammed your blog. Thanks!

    I’d love to offer some advice. What’s your e-mail address?

    The gerbils look so cute!!! Are they all the same color? Can I name the one standing on his hind legs Puffy? You may have to bring them home the next time and introduce them to “Boy”.
