Name: sfiddy. My real name could make things complicated.
Sexuality: Whatever you don’t like.
Height: 5’9”… I’ve shrunk a bit in my maturity.
Time zone: central.
Time and date: 1:33pm 8/28/14
Average hours of sleep I get each night: 6-7. Less if I’m working on something, fic or science-wise.
The last thing I Googled was: postgraduate funding opportunities
My most used phrase(s): “walking feet” (for the kids); variations on “wtf” for everything else.
First thing that comes to mind: “ATP” (I’m working on something)
What I last said to a family member: “How are the goats?”
One place that makes me happy: The big comfy chairs in a lounge near my lab. I escape to eat lunch and watch episodes of “House MD”.
How I sleep: On my side. I leave deep narrow trenches in the bed that make my husband crazy.
Favorite beverage: Jasmine green tea.
Last movie I saw in the cinema: Can’t remember. I last saw The Grand Budapest, though.
Three things I can’t live without: My phone, my notebooks, and Ball jars.
Something I plan on learning: Science-y answer: mixed model statistics. Non- science: How to get my kids to eat a meal in one sitting without a billion reminders.
A piece of advice to all my followers: Don’t get into debates on the internet. No one wins, everyone gets offended, and someone will get called a very very bad name. Then you wake up and realize you got into an argument about fictional characters at 2am and you haven’t washed your clothes in a week.
You all have to listen to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1c_PK2RL-I “Way Down Yonder in the Minor Key” by Billy Bragg with Natalie Merchant and Wilco. Written by Woodie Guthrie.

Favorite actor: British men are ruining my life.
Favorite actress: Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson
Siblings: One older brother
Dream job: running a collaborative research microscopy lab
Fears: Imposter syndrome
Religion: raised Catholic-and while I sense of humor about it, I recently had reason to recall why I can’t stand the ‘entitlement Christians’. The phrases “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want” and “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall want for nothing” are fundamentally VERY different statements.
Piercings: one in each ear. I’m such a square. I also don’t like hepatitis.
Languages: Fluent in American English, can understand some Glaswegian, German, and Spanish. (yes, I said that).
