Hello. I've got a new job labelling different amounts of sodium benzoate, putting them in small cardboard boxes and mailing them to reserach companies up and down the country.
It may not sound it, but I've probably never had so much fun in a job.
Part of this is due to the fact that I have developed a chemical addiction to sodium benzoate and working in such close proximity to the substance gives me a near unlimited supply. Also, we get to dress up as clowns.

It's a lot of fun being a laboratory assistant for a leading pharmaceutical company. Take last night, for instance; we were up until 10pm playing with the new centrifuge, and seperating combined acids from their base components.
Then, when the components had been seperated, we channelled them into a silicone block, and studied them beneath an infra red microscope.
Then we all dressed up as pirates, got drunk on tequila, and trashed the lab, causing £15 million worth of damage.
