swamped

busy busy at work… no lunch for the wicked all this week, nor much of a dinner, so no food posts or photos. šŸ˜¦

It’s the lunar new year tomorrow, and although I was kinda excited about celebrating it in a city with a large Chinese population when I first arrived, it looks like I’ll be stuck indoors tomorrow redesigning an experiment that I’ve just wasted 6 months on. šŸ˜¦ But at least I’ve avoided having to actually come into the lab… Haven’t had the time nor inclination to get the usual CNY goodies. Double šŸ˜¦ At least my parents brought me some mini shrimp rolls when they were here. šŸ™‚ And left me a red packet to open. Double šŸ™‚

And at least I had the presence of mind to buy some clementines at the Farmers’ Market. It’s not Chinese New Year for me unless I gorge myself on mandarins, tangerines and clementines for the first three days. (I can hear my grandma now telling me it’s “heaty” to eat too much citrus…)
