One more thing.

So I'm collaborating with a lab at JAIST (The Japan Advanced Institute for Science and Technology) for my research at Mitsubishi Chemical. Turns out I'm going to be going there every once in a while to compare notes and use some of their equipment (Mitsubishi Chemical's MALDI-TOF machine hasn't been assembled yet. Epic fail).

I thought this place was going to be down in Tokyo, but it turns out its on the other side of the country (literally, I'm on the Pacific, and its on the Sea of Japan). So on Wednesday I'm flying out to Kanazawa City for the first of (hopefully) many business trips. They're putting me up at a hotel for a couple days and I get to check out the labs at JAIST (one of the best post-grad research universities in Japan).

Kick ass. And I'm going to Okinawa in March for a tropical jungle + beach holiday. I've gotta use those 10 vacation days, you know.
