I've been running ragged the past several days. Pulling 10 and 12+ hour days (on the weekend, too) trying to get Westerns done for this presentation. It's gonna eat shit no matter what I do. It isn't helping that our antibodies are all denatured and basically inactive, and I'm getting about a 50% usable blot ratio. I'm going to see how far I can wave some smoke and mirrors around for the professors, and play heavily on background publications. And goddamn it cells why won't you grow and transform? ....my major project seems to be frozen in solid carbonite, and it's pissing me off. If I had this kind of work ethic normally, I'd have my degree in 6 friggin months. Of course, I'd have a hairline 6 inches to the rear and 3 quarter-sized ulcers, too. Merci non. I seriously need to get blotto and decompress. Not soon enough.
