"Grant hair"

This is what I wore to stumble into lab to turn in some final grant paperwork:


I was promptly informed by my coworker that I had "grant hair." Because I love my readers that much, I am going to embarrass myself by posting it for you all to see. Sometimes when you had Heidi braids the day before (to distract from the fact that washing hair is not important while writing grants), you just want to take them down and leave them in pigtails. And sometimes brushing your hair is too hard. And takes too long. And uh. Yeah.

Grant crazy-face.

Katie circa Friday-afternoon-basically-done-with-grant. My hair received the benefit of a curling iron and some dry shampoo, but there was nothing I could do about my about-to-fall-over-dead expression. Still, when you're done with an amazingly stressful project, no matter how you look, things are looking up. Witness:

This was the last major movement I made before I fell asleep forever. Well, okay, I went to an art gallery. And promptly got sick, went home early, and fell asleep forever. I've been sleeping all weekend, and I'm happy to say that I'm feeling better (and hopefully looking less dead-tired). I think I'll be napping some more today, though, if it's all the same to you. And attempting to make these delicious-looking red velvet cupcakes. A step-by-step video for the baking-challenged among us? Yes please, Anthro Bakery.

Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend and has fewer bags under their eyes than me!


  1. Congratulations!!! You are looking super cute, even with your grant hair:)
