Monday, June 4


I just got a phone call at my desk - I think it's maybe the first one I've ever gotten aside from that time I called it to test it out. Guess who it was . . . my dad . . . he's safely arrived in London - he's visiting for the week :) I'm going to meet him at his hotel at 5pm, so now I'm just trying to pass the next 15 minutes before I can start to head out. I was suppose to have a meeting with my boss but he's still in another meeting about the 3rd edition of his textbook with John Playfair, so I reckon I'll be meeting with him tomorrow. In the mean time I'm a bit bored - did lots of experiments last week & have analysed them all to the best of my ability, but there are a few places I could go from here so I want to double check with him before I go off & order £400 of reagents & then find out he wants me to do something different.

Well I'm off to the toilet & then gonna walk to the lab & back just to look like I've done something productive today, aside from sending personal emails & playing on facebook - managed to get my co-worker hooked on it but that was a disaster, she found her 1st ever boyfriend (from when she was 13) and found out he's married with kids & so now she feels old & unaccomplished - not really sure how having a PhD makes you unaccomplished but whatever!! I did spend all morning from 8:30-13:30 on FlowJo analysis, the day was not a total waste.

WooHoo! Family in town...I imagine for some, that might cause cringes of pain...but it sounds like this is an extra special event for you.

BTW, I loved the line about walking to the lab and back to look productive! LOL
