Food Diary – June 29, 2011 – and… the virtues of working in an office

Principles of working in an office environment: You will start the day pretending you are a yuppie in the Eighties, but with a girly side. You will measure your daily intake of provisions carefully as not to oversnack. Pardon me – ‘overeat’. You very much WILL eat peculiar combinations of foods. You will fail to … More Food Diary – June 29, 2011 – and… the virtues of working in an office

Food Diary – June 28, 2011

Quick one! Breakfast. Then I went outside, and was amazed to be able to hear lightening and SEE fork-lightning, whilst basking in temperaMENTAL sunshine. Though it was very warm. Lunch! Post-running treat. Yoghurt is awfully filling, so the dinner was light. Water count: ~2l. Warm days.

Considering I need a form of official licence if I wish to survey people on a large scale for my current project, I was hoping that those who read this little blog are willing to provide snapshot versions of opinions.

Food Diary – June 26, 2011 – and… heat exhaustion

Stepping outside my “comfort zone” if you like: I know that 900 jobs may not be THAT many, but something about the cuts made to public services is making me feel a bit nervy. We know that corporate fat cats work for their bonuses, but there is something about cutting expenditure within health, education and … More Food Diary – June 25, 2011 – and… job cuts in the emergency services

Food Diary – June 22, 2011 – …and science “press officership”

I have been interning in the press office for nearly two weeks now, and am really enjoying the work, whilst learning everything I found that I did not know. However, I definitely feel that, despite having been removed from pure science for a couple of years now, my scientist-hat is definitely still (partially) on… … … More Food Diary – June 22, 2011 – …and science “press officership”

Food Diary – June 21 2011 – …and SCC2011 in picture (yes singular)

Saw this great word cloud of all the tweets from Science Communication Conference 2011 a short while ago, but conveniently forgot about it amidst all work. So let us have a look now at this caption of happenings, and people’s ideas. Food. Starting with classic food lie: if you bake it yourself, it automatically contains … More Food Diary – June 21 2011 – …and SCC2011 in picture (yes singular)
