It was too cute. Big T was teaching Little T the fundamentals of language and communication. Big T had his arm around his baby brother, and tried to get him to say “da-da”. Little T just smiled and drooled. It really was such a sweet scene. My children, interacting with one another and there was no crying or yelling.

Work this week is going to be challenging, seeing as I am in holiday mode already. God help me!

I am listening to old school Christmas music on pandora (www.pandora.com) while I work. You know, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald… LOVE IT!!  This is totally making the boring job of updating  my lab notebook  a lot more bearable. I much would rather start new experiments, but  a) short work week…how much can I really accomplish experiment-wise and   b) I have to be responsible about keeping a good lab notebook. I don’t want to be one of those cautionary tales of how not to keep a lab notebook…

*pausing here to pat myself on the back for being such a good, organized scientist*

Speaking of lab notebooks, I came across this site from Swathmore College with advice/tips on how to keep a good lab notebook. http://www.swarthmore.edu/NatSci/cpurrin1/notebookadvice.htm some good advice there. I especially like the side-by-side testing of different pens. Someone actually took the time to do all that. And I think it’s kinda cool.

So there ya go…3 random thoughts in one blog post.
