All about me
I've studied English literature and archaeology, so I know how to use a trowel incorrectly, and I'm nearly unemployable. But I'm full of good ideas. Like, have you ever heard the expression "a penny saved is a penny earned"? I made that one up. And now I have literally hundreds of dollars in the bank, so you be the judge of whether or not it was a good idea. Like Liza, I'm all about the giant squid and colossal squid. But I have a love/hate relationship with them—I love them because they're so bizarre and awesome, I hate them because they're mollusks. Mollusks are untrustworthy by their very nature. How can snails, clams and octopus belong to the same phylum? They're so weird. And some of them are intelligent. It's like sharing the planet with space aliens.
Science in my life
What is science to you?: 
Until I get accepted to Hogwarts, science seems like the next best thing. I mean, liquid nitrogen, titanosaurs, and electric guitars? Can't complain.
I would invent: 
Something that would allow me to go to the bathroom, without actually going to the bathroom. If you follow me. Also, are lightsabers real yet?
Technology I love: 
Super Nintendo, scissors, folding wallets, and modern medicine.
How do you use math in your daily life?: 
The division of time. And ingredient ratios for delicious fruit smoothies.
What technology do you use every day?: 
Belts, gears, DVDs, the e-mail.
Technology that drives me crazy: 
My car's "check engine" light. I'm assuming there's technology working there, not just spite.
