I turned in a first draft of a manuscript to my PI a couple of days ago, and had put an author list in it.  Apparently that was a mistake, but not that I'd know it.  I've reviewed several scripts before, mostly from our lab, but they always had the authors on it (IIRC).  We had our two powerhouses leave the lab within about half a year of each other, both of whom handled writing the papers (and frankly, handled us too, since they were the guys from whom I learned most of what I know), and now the onus falls on me, since I'm the only one in the lab who's not ESL and I gues i right reely good.  But afterwards he called me in his office to admonish me (it's his favorite hobby, I often think), and he kept asking me how much of the project was handled by me (most of it) and how much of this project I'll be using in my dissertation (most of it) , etc. and was angry I had set the author order (I put myself second).  So I wonder...

I think my wiring blew out in one of my apartment circuits.  My TV, phone base, etc. in one area just turned off this morning all of a sudden, and I couldn't get it back even after resetting all of the breakers.  I guess I need to clean up my living room so my landlord can come over and 'look at it'.. This is why I keep extension cords.  I'm not missing West Wing for that nonsense.

I bought groceries today ($190, christ almighty) and bought a box of milkbones and a bag of Pedigree.  Je pense que je vais le faire.
