Yesterday, my lab mates and myself went to the 2nd Annual National Rib Fesitval in Streetsboro, Ohio. In the process of sampling Texan, Australian, and Midwestern barbequed ribs, we sighted a fanny pack! To honor this brave soul, the Glass lab hereby proclaims the 18th of May as Unofficial Fanny Pack Day. Re-“acculturizing” myself to this hip (i.e. adjective synonmous to chic, popular, and sexy) fashion accessory has proved very useful in the lab; I not only remember to bring my security card with me upon traveling to and from the research Annex and the main building, but I can conveniently store by dialysate tubes, my timer, and my iPod while performing my 6 hour manual microdialysis collection to characterize the pharmacokinetics of ethanol in the SCN following an i.p. injection. Score! In the mean time, I suggest wearing your fanny packs proudly and brightly!
I Declare Today “Unofficial Fanny Pack” Day!
