I am a lab monkey, which means I do primarily idiot work and get paid for it. Today I am mostly watching cells grow. Work continues apace, mostly horrifying slowly- I think I could easily apply the old "a watched pot never boils" adage to my cell lines right now. Hopefully they'll get going soon so I have something productive to do at work. The rest of the week I'll be running a gel (whee), doing a Western blot (ugh time-consuming) and maybe doing some more samples if the cells grow out by Thursday or so. Otherwise I will hopefully be getting at least one new plate from the lab downstairs.

My triceps are killing me today from a combination of longsword classes on Saturday and working in the yard on Sunday. It's good exercise, though, so with any luck I'll be in good shape when I go to California in August.

And now, off to the bank, to get some lunch and go home. I love my job.
