OK, when you put it like that it makes more sense to me. Thank you, Diesel Sweeties.
[Note: This comedic use of simile is relevant to my interests, but only in the abstract. Oh, how I wish it had specific relevance, but I'm trying to make peace with my fate as a lonely spinster.]

Airing laundry in Ahmedabad’s Old City

Microbiological Laboratory Hazard of Bearded Men, March 1967: “An investigation was conducted to evaluate the hypothesis that a bearded man subjects his family and friends to risk of infection if his beard is contaminated by infectious microorganisms while he is working in a microbiological laboratory. Bearded and unbearded men were tested with Serratia marcescens and Bacillus subtilis var. niger. Contact aerosol transmission from a contaminated beard on a mannequin to a suitable host was evaluated with both Newcastle disease virus and Clostridium botulinum toxin, type A. The experiments showed that beards retained microorganisms and toxin despite washing with soap and water. Although washing reduced the amount of virus or toxin, a sufficient amount remained to produce disease upon contact with a suitable host.” (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov - thx RD)

I've just come back from an incredible two-week trip to India — a whirlwind tour with stops in Bombay, Ahmedabad, Boroda, Calcutta, Serampore, and Bangalore — and there's a lot of material to sift through, a lot of new ideas to work on, and a lot of thank-yous to write. Seriously, this past weeks could easily be the start of months of activity if I were able to spin all these threads into other things.
A lot of that will have to wait, however, because I also found out that my UK sponsorship came through, and I suddenly have to jump though all the hoops necessary to move back to England in about three weeks. THREE WEEKS! That's great, yes, but also a little overwhelming.
