Hat trick pony

I didn't get out of work until 2 am last night, and around 1 the night before, and 12ish before that. Last night, someone turned off the CO2 tank to my incubator before they left, and turned several people's cells purple as Prince by the time I heard the alarm go off. I left an equally colorful message on the whiteboard before I left.

Also, I had two separate sets of blots (one set of 8, one set of 4) fail during transfer on our unit with loose plug ports. I had to postpone my weekly meeting until tomorrow so I could stay late and repeat 6 of them so as to have -something- to show him.

Also, my huge Xfection experiment last night failed due to the $13,000 machine breaking (yet again, after sending it back to the manufacturer for doing it earlier) in the middle of the set. I'm so tired today, I just don't know if I have the mental energy for the 'conversation' I need to have at the customer service rep.

I'm anxiously awaiting the brain tumor and/or ulcers, postage well paid, to arrive on my doorstep.
