I have to go over Darwin for lab this week and I'm a little afraid I'm going to cry when I start talking about the elegance of Origin of Species. I'm usually pretty good at masking my heartfelt nerd emotions under a mask of casual teacheriness, but my hormones are making the mask drop right about now...

So, I like a good fight, but don't make it a habit to watch boxing or MMA bouts unless it's somebody I care about. However, somehow last night I wound up at DudeJeans's fight night shindig with his work buds, and had a great time...which is worrisome, because I don't need another sport to obsess over!
