Who is joining me for dinner on December 10th?
In Stockholm, Sweden.... for the Nobel Prize ceremony.....If only.  Do you think they need someone who looks decent in an evening gown (and knows what the winners are talking about??) to guide the prize winners to the stage? To carry the medals before royalty bestows it upon them? I'm pretty sure I won't be winning one unless something magical happens.  Maybe I could make friends with future potential Nobel Prize winners.  I am going to figure out how to get there one year! I promise!  You read it here first.

Enough already!  I do NOT look like Sarah Palin!  Please, everyone, stop!  I know I have dark hair, wear glasses and can fire a gun (but no hunting, because if dissecting a little mouse makes me cranky, I can only imagine what killing a deer or moose would do to my day).  Like Sarah Palin, though, I was also in a beauty pageant--for some difficult to articulate reasons (Miss Guam World 1982--in 1980, our girl actually won the World pageant, after Miss Belgium had to step down after 18 hours--nude pics, as you can guess.).  Here is the embarrassing proof of my stint as a contestant, wearing the ugliest dress on the planet (not my choice, aka grace under adverse conditions.  I only put here the swimsuit picture to redeem the dress picture):

I was a finalist and Most Photogenic, and apparently just shy of Miss Congeniality.  I guess it was just something to experience. So now when I begin my political career, no one will be able to blackmail me with embarrassing information...it's already out there.  Wait.  I know I did not say political career, I take that back, immediately, I mean TV career.  I must admit, I don't much enjoy politics and would be horrible at it. And, I really do prefer tropical weather to Alaskan weather. I'd be happy to visit Alaska, but don't think I'd make it home.  

Now everyone can go to the stem cells and tissue engineering page if you have a bit of time.  You will need it to download the film of the presentation I gave for the World of Science series.  Then it will take you about an hour to watch it. 

I really like writing.  That's because I would never choose to write "uh" and "um" every few minutes.  Looks like a habit I need to break when I lecture.  Apparently it hasn't driven anyone to distraction to the best of my knowledge, but now I really know what I sound like.  Hmmmm.

Until next time,

Kindly, Joanne
