It's the time of year when babies are abound - and this baby horse just happens to be bounding next door to work. We have several baby horses at the wildlife center next to the lab I work at, but this one just happens to be my favorite - with his momma. You simply can't resist wanting to snuggle his speckled body. Even his tail has a spot! I need to think up a name for him...

Speaking of work, Andy and I (we both work in the same lab) had to do a Gram stain on some bacterial cultures we had grown but we couldn't find a single lab in the building who had the staining kit, which meant we had to find all the base materials and mix the dyes ourselves (I got to play chemist for the day). To put the situation in a scientific equation I think we can all understand : Brandy + dye crystals + water = purple + red + orange laboratory/fingers/clothes/etc. It was an experience - both sinks in the lab are now a rather pretty shade of purple. I think this experience solidified why I shall probably never end up dying my own yarn. The lab bench is one thing, but the carpet in my apartment would be a whole other thing. I believe it also solidified why I'm going to school to be a marine biologist and not a microbiologist. Dyes, shmyes.
I'm one slipper down, one to go on the custom order. Pictures when I finish, of course.
Countdown to Disneyworld: 14 days.
