So we had a party at our house last night. I thought of the theme, Your Hometown, so everyone dressed as their hometown stereotype and brought food/booze that they have back home. It was awesome and everyone loved the theme. /bragging.
Anyway, one of the people sort of tangentially from work was sitting by the road as we drove by on an errand run, and I realized I had not invited her. So what did we do?
Totally turned around, drove by again, screamed her name, then sat in the road chatting for like 10 minutes. In a slightly creeper huge school van. At least it has windows, so it’s not a kidnap van.
So today, headed into work, and thought they might need me to help out on Egg Take. Now, I now what it is in theory, take fish, remove eggs/milt, mix, place mix in happy little fish incubator. The actual practice, I know is… messier. On the “whack fish over head, cut open belly, dump genetic material in bucket, toss now-fairly-dead (though they die post-spawning anyway, we are only hastening the inevitable) fish into another bucket” type way.
I check with one of the hatcheries guys and he’s like “Oh, yeah. It’s easy, we’ll teach you. You’ll like it. It’s a fish whacking good time.”
Oh, Sitka. Never change.
Though, no. A bunch of other people materialized to help, so they didn’t need me. No fish whacking today. Maybe later.
