ROAR

when we were younger, my sister and i sometimes used to play board games. that sounds cute and all, but things never ended well. i vividly remember the feeling of getting so frustrated about losing that i would just HAVE to throw the whole board or at least shove everything off of it. i had to! i would have imploded or something if i didn't.

and THAT is how i feel about my stupid cells right now. i came into lab feeling all hopeful, and was greeted by some more crappy, inconsistent, data that i DO NOT DESERVE. i don't even care if results don't turn out the way i want them to; i've gotten past the idea that this is ever going to happen. but for the love of god, why the inconsistency? why the giant error bars? WHY IS THIS SO HARD?

i would throw the scintillation counter across the room, but it's too heavy. and radioactive.

argh.

i saw matisyahu in concert last night. he's a hasidic jewish reggae singer who is all the rage right now. it was weird, but good.

you can just wheel it across the room, but that may not achieve the same effect... ;)

You pray: on chocolate?!
I THINK you mean prey, unless chocolate has become your tefillin (which I suppose it might have!).
L, da :-P
