Definitive list of animals it’s okay to kill out of fear of them:
If you don’t think I’m going to try my damndest to work a pun into the title of every paper I write you are sorely mistaken.
I’m not saying I will succeed. I won’t. But every now and then, I will produce a gem.
Today I got five more frogs.
Dead ones. In alcohol.
You know, cuz I’m a scientist and stuff.
They belong to at least two species, possibly three, and at least one of them is completely new, and easily distinguishable from every other frog in Madagascar, including its close relatives.
It’s like early Christmas.
Why thank you, kind anon. Have a nice day yourself.
I sincerely hope not. But it is about time for another hair cut soooo…
The thing is, I don’t really do vacations. I go away from things for a little bit, but I only stop working because of a lack of availability of time and internet access. I say I was on vacation for all of July, but really I was doing marine biology research for the first two weeks, and then got back to Munich, worked for five days, and then took a real week-long break to visit Edinburgh and then my family in Switzerland. It’s the first real break I’ve had in a very long time, and was much needed.
I find vacation in general to be very stressful, because I cannot for an instant forget just how much work I have to do upon my return. Especially right now. Things are nuts.
More animals on face will be forthcoming I promise. I also have cool new novataxa things coming up soon because I received one or two new species of frogs today. Because my workload clearly wasn’t high enough already :)
