Well, I am certainly feeling very chipper today. I surely love the opportunity to blither at people about my research, indeed I do. Blither blither blee! It combines the things I love best, yammering and myself.
So cheerful am I that I am going to post a picture of myself in which you can see both my 30-week-pregnant torso and my shining face.
Am I not radiantly replete with beatific enthusiasm? Does not my entire person proclaim, "I am an avatar of the miracle of life"? Is it any wonder that no one dares to touch my bump?
(I really am feeling cheerful, though, I promise.)
