Escaping Invertebrates and Walking All Night for a Cause

So, remember the leeches? Apparently they got out of their little aquarium. We're not sure how they managed it, but they did. One disappeared about two weeks ago, and the other one we just noticed was gone today. How do they get out of a tank that has no gaps anywhere near the waterline?!?!

Leeches aside, this weekend is Relay for Life on campus. For those of you who don't know RfL is an event sponsored by the American Cancer Society that is held annually in places all over the country. Basically, you put a team together, raise money that all goes to ACS, and then you (as a team) divide up a 24 hour period and walk. Personally I have a lot of interest in something like this due to my future career goals (I want to go into pediatric oncology) and battles with cancer that have been fought and sometimes lost by people close to me. I urge everyone to find an event and participate if you can. There will be pictures up Saturday sometime of the event, I'll be there the whole 24 hours, so sometime in there things should get interesting.
