One: I passed my theory test yesterday. Driving, that is. I am now in the process of booking up lessons, test, etc. I’m getting there, chaps.
Two: On Friday, the last time I was in work, I dissected a shrimp the size of my little finger nail, beneath a microscope. It’s very difficult, actually: using a pair of scissors with blades about 5mm long and less than 2mm wide, and two pairs of, well, they look a bit like tweezers and that’s what they’re called, but the tips are needle-fine. And you’ve got a shrimp paddling manically about its little plastic Petri dish, and firstly you have to kill it by cutting off its head, and then you have to dissect it, and it’s somewhat akin to bobbing for apples, except instead of merely trying to pick up the apple in your teeth, you’re trying to use your incisors to carve poetry into the skin. That’s how difficult and fiddly this is. So I managed to get out its guts and see the hepatopancreas, and brood plate and eggs and things, but then I effectively mashed the rest of the animal with my needles whilst trying to get its back off to have a look at some other things inside it.
Anyway, it’s half eight in the morning, I only came online to check my emails and send off an invoice, and now I’ve got to go and catch my train.
