I was doing protein purification last night in the cold room...again. Until 1:30 a.m. Again. However, it either worked this time or I have given it the ole' college try and don't have to do it again. I also got a rave performance review from my P.I. It gave me such a high. 4 stars!
It's hot here today. Not so much hot as muggy. It's yucky St. Louis weather. Spring morphing into summer. Everything is blooming. The smell of honeysuckle is very strong in our backyard. It is climbing up the back of the garage. My eyes are very itchy. I've doubled up on the Flonase and started Zyrtec, and now I'm fine. The pharmaceutical companies love me. I saw a robin fledgling on my walk to lab. His daddy was teaching him how to hunt for worms in the grass. He still had a bright yellow beak and lots of spots. He chirped very boldly at me but I didn't have any worms for him. I smiled at a woman on my walk this morning as well. I try to smile at strangers when they don't pose as a potential threat (someone who might mug me) because it makes them feel good and me feel good. She smiled back and said, "I wish it was as easy for me as it is for you." What the hell does that mean?
