I admit it. I am not the most organized person. My office is one of those "don't touch anything--I know exactly where it is" kinds of places, in sharp contrast to the colleague I work with most frequently, who was in the Navy for 20 years and never has so much as a pencil out of place. I blame it on my business; I like to have everything within reach when I'm working on something, therefore it's more likely to be "filed" on the floor or on my desk than in an actual cabinet until the grant or manuscript is out the door. In the last month I've sent off 2 grant proposals, finished a new course submission, and sent off a journal manuscript (with another to follow shortly), so alas, the clutter is closing in on me, forcing me to spend today filing, reading journals that have been piling up on my desk, and just generally making my office space presentable to students once again. (Though after reading this post via Pharyngula, maybe it's better to keep it messy in here...)
Anyhoo, in the meantime, you might want to check out a discussion of probiotics over at Immunoblogging. The discussion of the introduction of new bacterial species into your native flora (your "poo print--" I'm totally going to steal that for a lecture on intestinal flora) goes nicely with my post on Clostridium, below.
