...the beauteous sound of data...
I went into work this morning and felt exhausted from the trip. I got down to my office and one of the secretaries looked at me and said, "My god you look so uncomfortable." I just looked at her and laughed. I might have also said, "you got it."
Everyone there was being exceedingly helpful - let us know if you need anything, which was super.
And then I went over to the lab and faced the new machine. I had been avoiding this moment, because I knew already how much I had forgotten. And then I started a run. And had to stop it because I had forgotten something. And then I lost four samples. And then, and then, and then - it worked. I got data! Beauteous data!
I'm psyched. I want to go back in and get some MORE data! err, but I probably won't. As the technician said...maybe wait and see how you feel tomorrow.
But I already know what's happening tomorrow. Tomorrow, K and I are taking a vacation away from the house while the carpets are flooded with water and chemicals. I've made a reservation for lunch at the botanical gardens, and we plan to do some shopping about town. We don't particularly have anything to buy...but hey, what a nice date we're planning.
