Exciting news at last!!!

Tonight is the night. Finally. I can tell you some exciting news. My first paper since 1998 is now published. You can see the abstract here. Okay, in my business, publishing is expected. What is so exciting about that? Well, a couple of weeks ago, my editor friend informed me that one of my figures was going to be used on the cover of the journal. This issue is in honor of my first postdoc advisors 65th birthday. So, having my figure as one of two on the front or back cover is really an honor. The figure is similar to this one:

Now, I'm sure you're probably thinking what's all the fuss. Well, this postdoc advisor means the world to me, so having a paper published in his special issue and having a color figure on the cover is just too cool. I owe my career to this guy. I'm just glad I was asked to contribute.

Thank goodness. Now everyone can stop asking me if I'm pregnant and when we're moving.

Big, happy sigh.

Congratulations. It's a shame that the an explanation on what the pretty swirly thing is would go right over my head. Well done getting it on the cover of the journal and getting published in a journal dedicated to someone who has been influential for you.
Hope you and thatgirlygirly had a good new year celebrating.
