So nice to know I'm not the only paranoid one. :-) But sad to know that sometimes "just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean their not after you". :-( **Off to go check prices for tiny cam. . .Read More

Wow, you guys. Just wow.  In all my wildest dreams I never imagined this DonorsChoose.org campaign would be so successful! But after nearly a month, LabSpaces is in 4th place in the Science Bloggers for Students Challenge, and it's all because of you! Our pet project, "Oh! Rats!" got fully funded several weeks ago, which means that I'm delivering on my promise to you--an original cocktail inspired by and named after a donor who gave through my Giving Page, and a video of me making said cocktail.

The winner was chosen randomly by a party blind to the identity of those eligible, and then I experimented a bit until I felt I'd come up with a concoction that really channeled the spirit of this winner. The video was made this afternoon with the help of some lovely friends and several rounds of mimosas.

Now, please forgive the low sound quality, as we only had a regular camera's video recorder to work with, plus it was my first time editing a video of any kind, so some of the cuts may be, shall we say, less than smooth. Also there's sort of a gratuitous ass shot because I forgot to get a glass out before starting, but hopefully that won't be too painful. Oh and yes, there are costume changes. I couldn't help myself.

And now.....the DonorsChoose.org Cocktail Contest Winner!

Thanks again to everyone who donated! Cocktail or not, you all helped kids get a better education, and that is just awesome.

Congratulations, Candid Engineer!

Also, digging the cocktail.  I like the balance the Cynar brings by taking down the sweet levels, and how the ginger elements come into play on the back end.  Really brings out the multi-tiered flavors on the finish, and makes sure they work together on the front end.

Congrats CE!  Great video, Becca.

I'm really proud of everyone that was involved with this drive.  I think it's awesome that we've all only been together for 4 months and we were able to pull together to raise almost $3,500 for kids to learn science!

This is what we 'spress here at home (except mine is 10 years old and somewhat more grungy looking):
