Damnit, why do scienticians get all the fun? ;-P
I have to agree. This is the absolute perfect job for me. I admit the two of us could still be in the honeymoon phase but it would have to get a whole hell of a lot worse for me to stop being ecstatic about it.
I think we have to make a lot of fun in order to compensate for the amount of aggravation our work gives us. Or something. That's my excuse, anyway.
We are very, very silly, no?
Next time you're in London you must join us on one of our nerdy alcohol-based adventures.
Thanks, I'd very much like too. I have on occasion displayed a nerdy streak..
And likewise you must visit the 'burgh again sometime. I need help in the role of Rachel's drinking buddy - there's only so much a wee boy like me can handle.
And all I got at work today was a rock...
What's funny is that I didn't end up drinking any of the mulled wine. I drank the whisky I bought with my big brother instead.
Please tell me that's just the tester beaker--where's the vat??
Alas, we have none. But I'll suggest we sell the thermal chamber because it's rubbish and purchase a vat instead.

I could not respect you more than I do at this moment.
Well, I'd be prouder if it had turned out a little better. :-P The thermal chamber is a bit rubbish, so had to resort to microwave to finish the job.

The microwave is still quite properly a physics solution, I think.
Yeah, that's about right. Tomorrow is another office xmas party. I think this is our fourth, but I'm starting to lose count.
If I had a lab, I would be using it to make mulled wine too.
How did it turn out?
The thermal chamber doesn't work too well, actually, so it wasn't great. By dint of adding a lot more cloves & cinnamon to individual glasses and bunging them in the microwave, we managed to make it acceptable.
You know, I've never actually had mulled wine.
