Why a picture is worth at least a few words

Because today is Monday, and because I have nothing to post about, and because my life is hopeless despair kill me now boring, I would like to post the first in what will hopefully be a series of photos entitled, What the Frig Am I Doing In This Picture?!?!?!?!?! 

And so I ask you, Internet... what the frig am I doing in this picture?!?!?!?!


Guesses? Speculation? Let's start with the who/what/when/where/why. When was this picture taken? Where? What am I thinking? And what twisted series of events could have led me to the situation I find myself facing here? Answer away, and feel free to be as creative as you'd like.

I desperately urgently creepily eagerly await your response!

  1. I'm seeing a lab of sorts. As you haven't had to do a lab since... high school maybe? I'm guessing it is for your program and maybe I should be trying to say this in French?

  2. I'm thinking this is a high school biology class? There seems to be a microscope involved.

  6. And P has it! It is a mouse! (You can click on the picture to make it bigger.)

    Even my friend Jamie doesn't remember this part of my life, which tells me I have done a good job repressing this time in my life from my and my friends' collective memories.

    So...yes, a mouse. But why a mouse? Keep the guesses coming, people!

    (My word verification is "raticant," which pretty much sums everything up. Mwahahaha!)

  7. Why a mouse? It's obvious! You're looking for that special chemical compound that makes Doritos so tasty!

    Duh!

  9. It's a dead mouse and you are drilling a hole in it so that you can make a necklace/pendant thing for Valentine's Day.

  10. Ha! So far Kono is the closest. Sad (and disgusting) but true.

  11. Following years of redundant, studious study at the Super Science Academy of Scientific Sciences, Rachel learns that her path all of these years studying the psychological motivational habits of common white mice is actually a scholarly desire incepted into her by the International Association Against Albinism (IAAA), an organization whose secret agenda is to expose white animals for what they truly are: fallen angels bound to the mortal coil. One day, by chance, Rachel stumbles upon a mystery covered up for decades by false biological theory: there is a worldwide albino domination conspiracy. Those bastards want back into heaven. After frivolously publishing her findings on the internet in a pot-induced fury, she wakes one morning to find her room mysteriously empty and no memory of the past seventeen years of her life.

    With the help of Doc, a rogue albino French-speaking pony now working for IAAA, confined to Assateague Island by the Fallen White Ones for years until swimming back to the mainland in an ironic throwback to the ancestors of the wild ponies who've inhabited the island for centuries, and a bionic man Chuck, Rachel must retrieve her memory and save the world.

    Yep.
