Mile after mile after mile after mile after.......... and February life

When you move from a small country like Denmark to a big country like the US, there is just a LOT more time spent in the car. And yesterday was absolutely crazy for Kristian. He ended up driving a total of 160 miles (about 250km) just to get to work, drop Luca off at an overnight birthday, and pick up Teresa from a party. No wonder he is constantly fantasizing about getting a replacement for our noisy dinosaur of a minivan. Here it is by the way (or at least the side of it, with an excited dog waiting to board):

It is one of our goals this year to get a second, newer, smaller, and less gasoline gulping car that would allow for a little bit more flexibility overall.

Otherwise there has been a magical shift from leaving January and entering February. When we woke up February 1'st after a month of endless clouds and grayness the sun was shining from a bright blue sky. It is colder though, but somehow life is just easier to handle in general, when there is a bit of sunshine involved. Here's a sunrise on my way to work, that proofs that there is actually sky behind the clouds:

I have been running some studies this week that has required me to stay at work late and go down to the animal housing several times during the evening (mice eat at night red.). Those hallways in the basement (dungeons) of the university seems endless. I did a timelapse video of them at about 9PM, when I was incredibly bored and tired. Enjoy here. I partly did this video as a service to myself should I ever start missing these hallways (as if.......!)

Sadly enough I have also reached the point in my development as a neuroscientist, that I begin to see rodent brain slices everywhere. Check out the similarity between Luca's breakfast and a mouse hindbrain. Kind of eerie right?

Well, Mount Doom of laundry is calling for me. Over and out for this time. Have a wonderful weekend out there
