politics and cats
For some reason the Bush Administration is making me edgier than usual today so I'm posting about this picture of a kitten as my way to avoid pissing people off by ranting about treasonous behavior and dereliction of duty.
Isn't it a cute kitten? My girlfriend's youngest son brought the little tyke home one day. He'd found it out behind a gas station all dirty and starved looking. Not long after that he became Mom's cat--otherwise he'd have been all dirty and hungry once again, just in a different location. LOL
I took this picture because I'd never seen a cat eat a sandwich before. The novelty of the action was enough to get me to go retrieve a camera to take a picture instead of the more logical activity of tossing the damn cat out the door. It's amazing how far a little cute fur can get you in this world. Maybe if Bush had fur I'd appreciate him more.
Of course he'd still not be cute--he always reminds me of a leprechaun that just got away with some nasty trick on humankind. And when you think about it, that's not such a stretch....
Yesterday was a long day. I didn't get out of the lab until after 7pm due to a migration assay. It takes a long time 'cause after you set up the cells you have to give them enough time to grow out a ways, in this case 6 hours, and then you wash them a while and stain them. Fun stuff but it takes a while. Today should be a lot more pleasant since I'm just finishing up a proliferation assay and also collecting the data from the migration assay. It all should take less than 5 hours! I do love a short Friday.
