I'm a complete idiot.
I'm known in various circles for my propensity to break glassware (usually with important samples or toxic chemicals inside... the Bottle of Formaldehyde Incident of '03 was hard to live down). I've got a weird brown spot on my middle finger from a time when I was handling formadehyde without gloves. I once accidentally splattered DMSO in my mouth (a tiny flick off the inside of an eppie tube lid, but still... it made my tongue feel weird). I mean I've always been an idiot, prone to accidents, but seriously guys, this one takes the cake.
Yesterday I VERY CAREFULLY cut out bands on the UV box wearing eye protection... instead of a face mask.
Today, I look like I fell asleep in a tanning bed. Or went snorkling on the sun.
The time has come...
