Twelve Months of Drug Monkey (2012)

December 19, 2012

As I’ve noted in past editions…

The rules for this blog meme are quite simple.
-Post the link and first sentence from the first blog entry for each month of the past year.
I originally did this meme, after seeing similar posted by Janet Stemwedel and John Lynch. Prior editions include 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008.

If you blog, I encourage you to do your own year-end wrap up post.


2012

Jan: ah, a tragic conundrum emerges from the thickets.

Feb: It’s been awhile since I last talked about MDMA, aka 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, the canonical ingredient in Ecstasy.

Mar: Perusing the ‘pedia on the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution I found what I was looking for.

Apr: This is my understanding, anyway.

May: This is huge. Previously the only IC that, to my knowledge, made their funding data available was the NIGMS.

Jun: Dude. I realize you are white and male and think you are quite a smart scientist.

Jul: I received a kind email from Elsevier this morning, updating me on the amazing improvement in 2011 Impact Factor (versus 2010) for several journals in their stable of “Behavioral & Cognitive Neuroscience Journals”.

Aug: What a fucking summer.

Sept: Phew. We’re okay. For now.

Oct: Obviously it is an academic career credit to be selected as the Editor in Chief of a journal, no matter how humble that journal may be.

Nov: We have touched on the Investigator criterion of NIH grant review in the past.

Dec: I’m attending a meeting that is enriched in the older and established luminary type of scientist.
