Last Friday my coworkers had a small sendoff party for my boss who's going to be away for the next month on an Eisenhower Fellowship. Lucky guy. Well, smart guy really. Anyway, in honor of Halloween as well, they got a cooler full of dry ice for making party tricks and spooky drinks etc. By the time the sendoff wound down at about 12, there was still 3/4 of a cooler full of solid CO2 left, and I decided that I might need to take some home with me. I filled a Tupperware with the stuff and then headed back home. When I got back, I thought, "Won't this stuff stay frozen a lot better if I put it in a thermos?"

Getting out my trusty stainless thermos and dropped in the dry ice cubes. I sealed the cap nice and tight to make sure that the air didn't get in to warm up the cubes and then Jennifer and I headed off to bed.
