Got it done. My lab is all cleaned up and shiny and organized, except maybe for the bits behind the camera that you can’t see. So many beakers and flasks and bottles scrubbed! So many jagged shards of glass tidied up, pools of toxic chemicals siphoned off, untriggered bombs detonated, bones of previous adventurers interred!


Tomorrow…my office. This was just the warm-up.

    What, no conga-line of zebrafish celebrating your work?

    You published photos of the lab before, but I hadn’t realised it is in such a small room. But I guess the zebrafish don’t mind.

    The plastic shelves with the tanks do look a bit… rickety. Sure it is safe? I would have welded something together, or perhaps even built something out of timber.

    The large amounts of toxic waste this exercise produced is now melting, no, more dissolving, its way down to the centre of the Earth. The resulting explosion with open, or at least dislodge, the door to poopyhead’s officebroomcloset, which is how he plans to gain entry for tomorrow’s cleaning. Unless, of course, the somewhat vexed Silurians arrive first (Plan B is to point them at hair furor and the quartered EPA…).

    Is it spring break at Morris or did the health and safety people finally catch up to you?

    Good luck with the office.

    I had an advisor who spent half of her sabbatical doing “something” in Australia and the other half cleaning up her office. Somewhat to her surprise, she discovered the raw data for her dissertation from 20 years before.

    Wow, that looks almost exactly like where I work; it’s a small computer place that rented space from a former biochem lab. Also giving me serious Rick and Morty vibes :D

    Interesting how the black-countertop/oak-cabinets look has become fashionable for kitchens, lately.

    Very disappointing ,i imagined your Lab would have more of a mad Scientist feel about it ,all bubbling test tubes and flashing lights .
