Apologies to Billy Joel

"You may be right; I may be crazy, but it just may be a loooonatic you're looking for..."

Maybe it's the combination of my Biology degree and my love of art but when I opened my fridge this morning and discovered this particular set of salmon pink, yellow and blue-green molds celebrating spring in a dish of leftover creme fraiche, I actually found it beautiful. Jackson Pollack fridge art.

Okay, okay, I know it's kooky.

Happy April Fool's Day! No, I'm not kidding this time.

Interesting how 'life' forms are so organized and make pretty patterns!

If you're crazy, then I am too. Something about things growing on dairy that at times is beautiful.

Pretty! Wonder if you could get high from that. (You try!)
Happy AFD.

Anna, strange and beautiful, even tho' not anything like us.

Kailyn, and I gather this is how penicillin was discovered, too, just an accident on a petri dish. Maybe mine was a cure for some dread disease - but which one?

Cookiecrumb, I get high just from living life and/or taking off my glasses, need no enhancement. But, I can lend you some of the interesting contents of my very messy fridge if you want to try... :-)

I have lots of science projects in my refer too. None quite that attractive.

Greg, maybe we should all photograph ours and mount an online art show?

Molds and fungi, beautiful, unless they are on what you wanted to eat (or wear)

Morgan, yes, I have to admit I no longer craved this creme fraiche! And I usually don't wear dairy. :-)
