Chemistry and Zoology

The Clearly Besotted set Scientifically Speaking jumped all by itself into my cart a few months back. Some of you may know I was, briefly, a chemistry major. (You can read about it here if you're interested.) My love of science drew this set to me, and oh how I love it.

Just a little fun in the lab of my creativity, so to speak.

Anyway, I mentioned yesterday that George and I have been married 29 years (talk about chemistry) and to celebrate, he took today off so we could go to the Indianapolis Zoo. George and I have enjoyed zoos for years...all over the country. Indianapolis has a dolphin exhibit and show, which drew us in like krill draws in a whale shark. Don't you love how dolphins always look happy? I mean, they are the golden retrievers of the ocean, spreading joy and happiness everywhere they blow, click, or squeee.

But with a lot less fur.

At the zoo today, I also learned that the Marabou stork is, to use George's words, "the biggest d*ck in the animal world." They fly ahead of brush fires and pick off small animals fleeing the flames. How horrible is that? We also heard gibbons vocalizing, saw a baby elephant playing in the water, witnessed quail mating (it was over very quickly, but he said he call her), and sweated practically to death in North-Carolina-worthy humidity.

Oh, and I took elephant butt pictures for my sister. So all in all, it was a great day for zoology!

stamps: Clearly Besotted
ink: Memento Luxe
paper: Papertrey
accessories: corner rounder, dimensionals, Wink of Stella clear (on the love potion and hearts)


  1. That stamp set magically appeared at my home as well. I am not sure how often it will get used but as one whose occupation is in the scientific field, it just had to live here.

    Zoos are the best entertainment. It's sad, now my daughter sees these things as so passé, we don't go anymore. But you have inspired me, just to go for the love of them.

  2. Fabulous "Chemistry" in this creation. So glad you had a great day to celebrate too!

  3. Congratulations and I have a similar thing about animal butts. If she doesn't already have these, they would make her infinitely happy. I know they made me smile and they actually are strong enough to work!

    1. Those are so funny!!!! Thanks for sharing the link!

  4. I've been eyeing up that set, too. It's adorable, but I don't have many other science geeks to make cards for. Of course, most of my flying buddies are science geeks, but I've never given any of them a card. I'm thinking I would pretty much only use it for coworkers, in which case the U + me sentiment wouldn't really work!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
