I got the new background from squidfingers which has a lot of really great tilling patterns in case anyone else was thinking of doing some blog redecorating. It's pretty similar to the old one, but let me know if the repeating little white lines make anyone's eyes go funny!
So there might be some changes over the rest of the week. I'm really looking for a new parchment-style background that I can fit under my words (without the dark line - I got that by just repeating my current template sideways), preferably with some kind of ornamental line under the "Lab Rat" title. I'm also considering a wholesale move to black and white. It might be cleaner, but I think I would miss the gentleness of the browns. Besides, my partner once told me that if I was a colour I would be brown. (I'm still trying to work out if that's a complement - I've always seen myself more as yellow, which I guess isn't that different...).
What I think would be great is a little picture in the top right hand corner (opposite the "Lab Rat" title) but I have no idea how to do that, and I don't quite have a suitable picture. I'm tempted to push a little more of the money I don't have towards Alice, to get an awesome spiky-haired rat in a lab coat. Maybe once I get a job.
Anyway. There probably won't be another science post this week, because I've only technically got one week of my project left *FLAILPANIC*. Times like this you really wish the ligations had worked.
If you miss the science, head over to researchblogging.org. We've had a sudden rush of new people joining due to the Awards getting publicised!
