Just another day in the labs...

I'm settling into work nicely now, except for the fact that I only know how to do one test so far and don't know how to work a piece of machinery that I will unfortunately be using quite often. Practise will make perfect, or at the very least make me somewhat competant.

I nearly got to use a wonderful face mask today, known as The Respirator. A fantastic name, which sounds brilliant when said in the style of a movie trailer voice-over guy. In the end I didn't have time to use The Respirator and I'm feeling a little disappointed. So I experimented with more taking-off-the-labcoat styles, todays' style is known as the flasher, probably inspired by Sane Scientists' comment on my last post. The only difference is that I make sure I don't wear popper fastening clothes to work, ensuring that no one gets an eyeful. As you've probably guessed this syle involves whipping open the lab coat and holding it out before wriggling it off. I should really start a picture gallery of each style if I'm going to keep this up. Ahh the things I do to amuse myself.

On another topic, I've been taking different routes home in order to get to know the area, and avoid getting bored of the same old drives. I'm getting back to the stage where I'd love to drive out somewhere for the day, and have a good time before coming back. any suggestions of pretty areas would be welcomed. I'd like to go to Ambleside again, mainly because I love little villages, exploring the shops, cake and book shops most specifically. Really I'd like to start doing things on my weekends to make the most of them, because a person can only take so much sitting at home before they want to go out into the world, to a pretty place and chill.

I may go into Liverpool this saturday, not really far from home, but I have a minted lamb baguette craving to satisfy...

Have you ever considered stripping? JUST KIDDING! Taking off all your clothes is much different then creatively taking off a lab coat. I'm sure :)

I sure wish I had a uniform to wear at work.

I understand you view on animal rights, but what's your view on running drug tests on inmates?

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Whoami

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
