Photo Friday #23: smiley worm

The other day I showed you that the cake at my defense reception had a worm on it. And it’s true, my dissertation work was on worms, but not the kind that crawl up on the sidewalk when it rains and give me the heebie-jeebies. No, I worked with microscopic worms that actually serve as an important model for understanding how our brains work. And they don’t have faces. So, clearly the cake version was an artistic interpretation.

Does the photo seem extra-swanky? That’s because of the graduation gift from my parents: a NEW CAMERA LENS. And it is so great, you guys. I wish it were Photo Friday every day now.
