i <3 chemglass

All apologies for the lack of posts lately. Excimer is on vacation, and I've been packing in preparation for a summer research program.[1] More than likely you'll see a barrage of lit posts over the next few weeks as I familiarize myself with (yet another) a new lab and a new research area (well, sorta new).


In the meantime, this is all I can post for now. It's what happens if you meet a really nice exhibitor at a conference. The people behind the tables appear to be very bored most of the time (my own experiences with tabling confirm this observation). You should talk to them. Most of the time, they have free toys to give out, but usually it's limited to magnets and pens and maybe candy. Some people, of course, have better toys than others.

Cute little condenser with spiraly thingiee insideYay for Chemglass. I'm hiding this so no one steals it.

[1] I know I have readers in the Santa Barbara area. Guess what? One of you gets to teach me how to surf. :)

I refuse to believe that you got that for free!

Believe it, but it was mostly luck. Several of the display items were rather old, and they wanted to show off new products. Maybe it is enough to convert me into a Chemglass loyalist. We'll see.

Let me guess: the sales rep. was a guy?

Yeah, Paul, but I really don't have enough cleavage for THAT to work.

Santa Barbara... water is usually too cold for me for any activities. The air temperature likes to go down by 5 degrees C in 3 hours before the sunset there... brrr. UCSB lagoon is a swamp.

People surf in San Francisco (SF has water temperature about the same as Murmansk.) But the neoprene suits they wear is not cheap.

Hi, I work at Chemglass! I just happen to come across and saw you wrote about Chemglass. I bet it was Steve Yonemura you talked to at the show.
