Populating my office
My mum works in the building right next to mine, and popped by today to help populate my office (with no direct windows out to the world outside) with some greenery. She gave me a superb little good-luck pottery elephant with some easy-to-care-for bamboo, along with a box of chocolates which were much enjoyed by myself and other, ravenous individuals in the lab. The easy-to-care-for part is especially important, as, so far, my experience with nearly every plant that I have looked after is to end up killing the poor bugger. If I don't kill the bamboo, I might be ready for growing the Red Savina Habanero chilli seeds that I have this summer.
Two long-time residents of my office can be seen to the left. At the top is my wee-little paper model of a shambler (created with the assistance of Pepakura designer - but more on paper unfolding obsessions another time), the design for which I shall put up online sometime. Below is the little wooden tiki that Briony brought back for me from her last trip to New Zealand. The tiki is an awesome little ornament, warding off nearby stupidity and causing nearby paper models to spontaneously unglue and fall apart.
