A post to make a LOLcat proud February 27, 2011

I had some help working on my dissertation today. In fact, the help was so adorable, I had to make a LOLcat out of her:

Microcat is all over equations  Maybe save Schroedinger's Cat

And on a similar note, I have a packaging fail.  I ordered some wire.  When it finally came in, I ran all over the building looking for it because the package didn’t appear to be in the receiving area.  It turned out that the wire had not come in a small coil in a packaging envelope, like I thought.  No, it came in a large plastic tube.  The plastic tube was then placed in a cardboard shipping tube.  However, this wasn’t just any tube; it was one that I think is normally used as a form to pour concrete.  The tube was six feet long.  I got my co-worker, who is approximately that height, to model it for scale:

As a side note, you can also tell that he is a mechanical engineer because of the plaid shirt.

So yes…they shipped my wire as a single strand, doubly packed in a plastic tube and then a large cardboard tube.  I didn’t find it initially because it was leaning on a wall away from the table where all the packages were lying.

*Apologies for the pictures not being the best quality.  They were taken with a cell phone.

Actually, it’s just him, and I give him a hard time about it all the time. We have another ME who doesn’t wear plaid. 🙂 On the other hand, I can’t recall ever seeing any of the EEs wearing plaid.

I wear plaid. That’s because I’m a part time lumberjack. Leaping from tree to tree as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia. The giant redwood, the larch, the fir, the mighty scots pine. The smell of fresh-cut timber! The crash of mighty trees! With my best girlie by my side. We’d sing! Sing! Sing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zey8567bcg
