First post-doc almost done (10 days to go)
I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe,
pentane on fire off the shoulder of Orion (the neighbors lab),
I watched the e-beams glitter in the dark room of the TEM,
people talking for hours in group meeting,
HPLC machines spraying eluents from everywhere.
Helicopters flying in the corridor
and safety inspector complaining about 3 postcards,
Mario Bros music blowing from test tubes,
ancient and powerful machines still working,
rebus on the blackboard and SIR NMR.
Asbestos, asbestos everywhere.
Black Hole Quencher modification,
Filthy glassware and uber-representative TLC,
fairytale inflatable house in the middle of the campus,
screaming vesicles and playing squash in the office,
weird algae in the ITC wash water and aliens on the rooftop.
Crappy vessels and rocking chair,
extreme safety during MD calculations and playing ukulele in the office.
And all those moments will be lost in time,
like a final product on an
Time to dye.
