I didn't expect I'd find much. Just curiosity and boredom.

Perruche: Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book
Illustrated by Brian Froud (of "Fairies" fame) & written by Terry Jones (of monty python fame).

This book makes me unbelievably happy.

I'm sure if you looked at any louched absinthe under an optical microscope you'd find nothing interesting. Even vintage Pernod would look boring.

Maybe the black dots were clusters of aforementioned fairies. Perhaps they congregate in big gangs and try to fight like in Michael Jackson's "Beat It" video. And only the power of slick dance moves can stop them...

Took some louched Old Way and my Intel QX3 microscope and played around. Not very interesting, and not very green either. Very pale green, nothing worth noting at both 10x and 60x. At 200x, however, notice some black spots that are obviously not visible to the naked eye. I have no idea what they are. I have no idea if they are something in the Old Way or just dust on my sample tray. Oh well, interesting nonetheless. I have snapshots from 60x and 200x if anyone really wants to see not much of anything.

Maybe I'll try Hill's or something else next time.
