Packing's been great! I think we've dumped about half our assets. Really, where do these things hide? Hermione must have snuck in and performed her undetectable extension charm on our closets.
Aside of all the junk and clutter, I've stumbled across some cool things, including this. When I was but a wee lab scientist in the making, I had a rotation through Cytogenetics in which I was able to harvest my cells and extract my own DNA!
So, what you're looking at is me, quite literally. There's the messy slide version, or the pretty, well-organized-chromosomal-pair version.
And please, no wise cracks about a missing 21 chromosome... :D
From what I see here, your beauty and brains really are genetic;-)ReplyDelete
Oh, not trying to get super duper nerdy all over your blog...but...there is a cell in the upper left corner of the "messy" slide, in mid to late anaphase! Pretty neat actually!
Looks like my sock drawer. But in all seriousness, it does explain a few things about you! :)ReplyDelete
LOL! How cute... love the sock drawer comment. And your hubby's comment too. YOu must have a really interesting job. Jealous.ReplyDelete
Ben - I love you...and your anaphase, too. :DReplyDelete
Uncle A - LOL. Well, seems like this would explain a few things about you, too!
Pk - :) It is interesting!...MOST of the time.
I remember seeing pictures of these in biology, but now I can't even remember what they mean. Way cool though that you get to look at your DNA!ReplyDelete
Awesome-- your blue prints! Of course, now that you have made them public there might be an outbreak of cute clones. (=ReplyDelete
wow that's pretty cool!ReplyDelete
This seems highly personal, for some reason. I don't know why. But ... it's also fascinating, thanks for sharing, Barbara!ReplyDelete
Jenna - Yeah, I know what you mean. If that sort of information isn't used on a day to day basis, it gets dumped :DReplyDelete
Jo - Aww, thanks!...though I'm pretty sure the "cute clones" would be a greater issue if you posted YOUR DNA!
Lana and Matthew - Glad you could enjoy! I'm always fascinated by science, especially when you can take the theory and have visible proof!
I love this. In fact, have I mentioned how much I love the way your blog has changed around lately? It's amazingly cute and so unique. Blogger hates me today so I can only post anonymously:( - Lindsay @ Tiptoe-KissesReplyDelete
I feel like I know you better now! :) It's what is on the inside that counts, right?ReplyDelete

Lindsay - You are so sweet, thanks! I've got some great examples out there (ahem) :D Hope blogger starts workin' for you soon. GrrrReplyDelete
Rebecca - Ha! True, true. Unfortunately, my chromosomes don't give that away...but time always will!
So now we have finally seen the "inner you!" Now, cloning yourself to get twice the work done in the same hour is just a bit of lab work away, right? RolandReplyDelete
Haha! I'm such a pack rat too! Its something I've made a conscious effort to try and improve, because I do NOT want to end up like those crazies on TLC's Hoarding: Burried Alive!ReplyDelete
That is fascinating!ReplyDelete
It's Barbara...Blogger is being weird, as you all already know...ReplyDelete
Roland - I WISH that were true! The moment I find someone able to do it (a) legally and (b) successfully, I'll be sure and let you know!
Julie - LOL! Well, on the bright side, moving forces you to dump everything.
Alex - Glad you enjoyed! I love science-y things
