Big ups to the grad students in the Ecology and Evolution Department at the University of Arizona for putting on a killer Halloween party and letting a couple of uncostumed drosophilists share in the festivities. That’s the good.
The bad: US Airways. I just found out my last flight (of three) on my way home was canceled. Instead of arriving home at 9:30am, I won’t get there until the early afternoon. There goes my plan to get work done on Monday.
Said drosophilists who were treated to vast amounts of ethanol by the Arizonans also got to see some really cool looking flies. I took some pictures, and once I get back home I’ll upload them to my computer. Keep your eyes peeled for some pretty pictures of flies with striped abdomens and colorful testes on this very website.
