It's a cold day in Moscow today (in the 40's), but because it's almost June, something in the building's climate control thought it might be a good idea to start turning on the cold air.

The vents are in the ceilings of the 2nd floor rooms, so my office, my lab, and the herbarium are all freakin' iceboxes. My fingers are so cold I can barely type this. It's the kind of cold that makes me want to curse about witches' tits and brass monkeys' balls, which is saying a lot.*


*I drove up to Killarney Lake to sample this weekend, as as I was coming down the road at 65 mph, a car on an intersecting street up ahead pulled up to a stop sign, rolled through it, watched me approach, and then PULLED OUT IN FRONT OF ME at the last possible second. I slammed on the brakes and laid on the horn. The car moseyed along at about 40 mph for the next mile, then SLAMMED on the brakes so I nearly rear-ended it, and pulled off into another driveway. And the best reciprocation I could come up with was to yell "YOU ARE A VERY BAD DRIVER!" at the top of my lungs, with the windows closed.


And, by the way, Bollywood has GONE TOO FAR.
