“Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope” –Josh Billings

Today was a mellow day in the lab. I didn’t find much in the plant macrofossil samples today, but Alec found many seeds, spores, insect chitin, leaves, and stems. The lesson of the day is “the only way to survive countless hours of microscope observations is to have music”. We’ve been getting really acquainted with one another’s musical interest, sometimes escalating into arguments. We had a great lunch at Gordy’s, and later that day we got a visit from Diana. Not much to say about today. Just another humpday.
