I’m sorry posting has been so sporadic. I’m in the midst of writing a paper at work as well as stuff for my dissertation (research plan stuff, not dissertation itself). After I spend a day writing and looking up things, it’s hard to motivate myself to write a post. However, I keep putting ideas in my file, so I’ll get to it eventually.  And the paper for work should be done by the middle of next week.

In the meantime, I have cute pictures:

Gigadog was doing her best bear rug impression.  While taking this pic, Microcat had something else up her sleeve…erm…paw.

Oh! You needed to put that dish in HERE?!  Go ahead…I was just trying to get some of that massaman curry up there.

I posted this picture a long time ago on my old blog, but decided to move it here as a LOLcat.

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.
