"Mouse Day" is a special day in lab. Today was a special day; it was mouse day. On Mouse Day I do a series of bronchoalveolar lavages which are time consuming and saddish. It involves suffocating mice (sad), cutting them open (sad), and forcing fluid into their lungs through the trachea (sad). Also it makes my back hurt. Anyway, it's nice to have a treat for myself when it's over. Today, that treat is the gorgeous gray silk/cashmere yarn that just arrived!! But for now, there are clones to be built.
