Magnet Monday: Rosalind Franklin

Cheesy Refrigerator Magnet for Monday, April 25, 2016
"disney castle", painted 3D resin, 2011

Work with me on this one. 

This is National Princess Week. Yes, that's apparently a thing. Even Julie Andrews is in on it. We all know at least one Disney princess, so even if you can't tolerate the shameless merchandising that is modern Disney, at least think fondly of your favorite princesses. 

It's also National DNA Day. What do DNA and princesses have in common, you may ask? This magnet! 

In honor of Rosalind Franklin, one of our "rejected princesses*". Without her work in X-ray crystallography, Watson & Crick would never have gotten the credit for determining the molecular structure of DNA. 

This charmer was picked up by our own princess, on a high school choir trip. 

*Rejected Princesses: Women too Awesome, Awful, or Offbeat for Kids' Movies is updated Wednesdays and well worth checking out. 

Magnet Monday features a selection from our semi-vast and ever growing collection of cheesy refrigerator magnets. Without doubt the perfect souvenir. Only slightly less cheesy than collecting snow globes but a whole lot easier to smuggle in your bra. If need be. Which I hope it never is. Unless it's really worth it.
