Money, money, money

I’ve had a nice suprise this week, as it turns out I was supposed to get a pay rise ages ago, and I’ve just been given the rise, along with the missing back pay!  My credit card is going to heave a huge sigh of relief. Our poor cat is getting a lot of hassle […]

Panda sneezing

Someone at BritishBeaders sent this link, and it’s given me a giggle this morning.  I love how shocked the mum looks afterward! Sneezing I’ve been quiet on here for a while, but I’ve begun back-posting to fill in the gaps.  I’ve also got a new look for the blog!  This wasn’t entirely voluntary, as I […]


This gave me a giggle today… Parachute use to prevent death and major trauma related to gravitational challenge: systemic review of randomised controlled trials

Short stories

Very short stories that is, with a limit of six words. I think my favourite is… It’s behind you! Hurry before it – Rockne S. O’Bannon Visit here to see the rest.

I’d completely forgotten the existence of H2G2, which has a fairly accurate and amusing entry on Galway that’s got me giggling at work this morning. […]

How cool is this?

So I was messing around with Google maps and discovered that they’ve got quite a high-res image of Galway! You can even see my flat on it (although I can’t find my car anywhere)

No, honestly, I am working

It’s just that I’m sitting here waiting for the slides I’m currently staining to incubate so I can look at them, and so I’m surfing the web. Honest! And sometimes I come across things that really make me laugh like finding out that a snake and a hamster that was offered to him as a […]


These chalk drawings are really rather impressive

I’m in the wrong field…

Ok, so for my research I get to culture cells, and try to find ways to produce parts of the human body, but do I ever get to hear a mouse sing? These guys do. Somehow, I just can’t stop thinking of the Aero advert with the hula-hooping and singing mice…

Silly post

Gummy Bears You may be smooshie and taste unnatural, but you’re so darn cute. What Kind of Candy Are You?

Silly post

Gacked off another blog. Type “[your name] needs” (with quotes) into Google, and see what you get. Apparently Claire needs…. …private support (I think Mum and Dad would say I’ve been getting that for a while…) …a visit to the Bunny Planet …Edie closer …greater spending in economic development (can’t argue with that) …to use […]
