Thanks Phenyl! You know, if/when my team goes to nats I need to get your autograph...you're my protein modeling hero!
Can I second that? (Okay, so maybe nats is a long shot for us, but you never know...)
Aww, you're making me blush.
Seriously, though, it means a lot to me when people come up to me (or my Protein team) at competitions and ask, "Are you Phenylethylamine?" and thank me for my help. I like knowing that I'm actually helping people learn more about proteins and, secondarily, do well on the event (although given that the people who take my advice consistently do better in competition than I do, some people on my team keep telling me to stop helping everyone so much xD).
Haha, if we do ever meet up I'll probably forget how to pronounce "Phenylethylamine" and ask "Are-you-the-gal-who's-really-good-at-proteins-and-has-a-purple-flower-avatar?" And FullMetalMaple, if one of us makes it to nats we'll mail each other copies of the autograph
But back to fawning, Phenyl, you are seriously one of the best contributors on the site in general
On another note, I'm studying for State right now and I feel like I'm overdoing it; I mean, I've read 3 different sites about nucleophiles, 2 sites about specific protein domains, and probably have 50 pages of useless information in my study binder. I've done rather well on the Invitational tests, and was confident on the Regional test; I know I shouldn't worry about random stuff being on the State test because MSOE writes it. So am I just being paranoid here?
I'm quirky like a quark.
