Day 31 (Wednesday, July 27th)


I went into the lab at 10am this morning. I did some tinkering in the morning, but I had to wait until the afternoon to do my ninhydrin tests. For lunch we ordered from the place where Paris, Heather and I had gotten the amazing fried rice. So I ordered the pork fried rice again. Eva asked me if I liked it, and I said I loved it and that whatever kind of grease it was cooked in was probably so bad for me but it tastes so good. She said, “Grease? No it’s cooked in [some Chinese word I could not translate].” I asked her if she could translate it to English, so she typed it into the Google translator. I really wish she hadn’t because I found out that the delicious fried rice was actually cooked with Oyster Oil. Weird.


In the afternoon, I went down to Heather’s lab to do my ninhydrin tests. I got to meet the people from Heather’s lab, and they seemed very nice! I totally feel for Heather now when she tells me how hot it is in her lab! I was sweating so badly! After I left and got home to the dorm, it was about 4pm, so we relaxed and then went to Family Mart for dinner at 5. As I ate I caught up on episodes of Secret Life and Pretty Little Liars. After that, we met with Paris briefly and now we are back at the dorm relaxing for the night.


I can’t believe I forgot to tell you about this before, but something very funny happened yesterday. So, I have a confession to make. Sometimes when I am riding in the elevator all by myself, I like to dance in front of the mirror and make poses and silly faces at myself. Well when Heather and I went down into the main office yesterday when our lights went out, guess what we discovered. There is a hidden camera in the elevator that broadcasts in real time to the main office! So this entire time when I have been dancing by myself in the elevator mirrors, the entire main office is actually watching me. Wow. Awesome.
