"Is there a term for that feeling when you want to cry and vomit at the same time?"
J-chan, without missing a beat: "Cromit".
(It's become quite popular around the lab.)
Tomorrow I may present them with
"Is there a term for being very upset that you're missing your movie date to see X-Men because you're stuck doing work in a genetics lab, and then realizing that's sort of ironic?"
and see what they come up with.
Also, if anyone knows how I can get James McAvoy to recite genomic sequences to me for a while, that'd be swell. Thanks.
