Would the real Miss Vivi please stand up?

Look who we found at the SASS conference at Graystanes today

With the funky purple hued hair and the big blue eyes could it be that Miss Vivi has a sister in Sydney? And how good is that t-shirt?

She is, of course, a labbie but she insists that she is much healthier looking than our Vivi – especially around the mouth.  Quite right, too.   Although we agreed we’d both be pleased if we’d been blessed with Vivi’s legs.

The Squeal from Miss Vivi – November 2010

Well hello!

I hope that Term 4 has been treating you kindly and you’re looking forward to a well deserved break over Christmas.

We just wanted to let you know that Miss Vivi and Mr Vivi are off to meet the the labbies of NSW and Victoria at their tech conferences, so Dissection Connection will be closed from 25 November to 5 December.  We won’t be available to despatch any deliveries, but we will be available by phone or email so don’t be shy about getting in touch.

We’re really looking forward to meeting some interstate labbies and helping them out with their offal problems next year.  If you know someone interstate that is having trouble sourcing worthwhile specimens for dissection then please let them know about us.

Have you considered pre-ordering your specimens for Term 1 next year?  If you pre-order you’ll be at the head of the queue and we’ll be able to guarantee your specimens will be delivered when you want them with absolutely nothing to pay until 30 days after you receive them.

Thank you again for your tremendous support and kindness to us this year.  We had a few teething problems in the very beginning and you were very understanding and patient while we sorted ourselves out.  I hope that we have made your life a bit easier this year.  I’ve been asked to track down some unusual things and it’s been great fun.

Have a wonderful break over the holidays, stay safe and we’ll see you next year.

Look out NSW

Look out NSW, here we come!

This week we’ve sent out some postcards to introduce ourselves to schools in NSW and Victoria.  As always, if there is anything you would like to know or anything we can help you with then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.  Miss Vivi likes a challenge!

Miss Vivi and Mr Vivi will be at the SASS Science Conference at Graystanes High School on November 25 and 26.  If you’re going to be there, too, then please come and say Hello.  I promise there will be lollies for you.

We’ve been asked to donate a lucky door prize. I was tempted to donate a ‘meat tray’ because everyone loves to win a meat try, but I’m not sure if even the most dedicated lab technician would be thrilled with going home with a tray of specimens. So, thinking caps on for a great idea for a prize.

Trade display at ConQEST 2010
We had an absolute ball at ConQEST 2010 in June

I’m also hoping to be at LabCON this year, so if you’re in Victoria and you want to meet us please let us know to look out for you.  There will be lollies for you, too 🙂
