aniline pixies

Aaaaand the update is here! For those of you not in Chem 36, we synthesized acetanilide a few weeks ago using aniline and acetic anhydride, which doesn’t much matter. What DOES matter is that my fume hood mate poured boiling solution straight from the hot plate into a lukewarm beaker, which then proceeded to break. I was nearly slain by flying glass and boiling pixies! Not nearly as exciting as the dude who spilled hot sand on himself during a lab and got driven to Vaden by the professor, though. Why can’t I get maimed like that and get one-on-one time? So far, my worst mishap was getting base on the table. Laaaame.

Just updating some of the site stuff after being KO’d for a few days by sickness. Strangely enough, unless I’m pregnant, asthmatic, a smoker, or near death, Vaden Health center doesn’t want to see me. Sooo… I pay them to ignore me and tell me to drink fluids over the phone. Feh. Anywho, somewhat back on my feet, just in time for the Bio and Chem midterms tomorrow and Wednesday. We who are about to dihybrid cross salute you! Update looks like it’ll be coming on Thursday, or in a giddy flurry on Wednesday night.

BLEH!
