I just realised I haven’t posted here for a good month. To be honest, I haven’t been motivated enough to write anything
because Penny died (there’s a post, I’m not ready to post about it yet).
I’ve been working more than usual. Summer means vacation time for all of Sweden, and since I don’t intend on taking any until late November, I had to keep things in line in the labs. Basically, I was queen of the labs for a good five weeks. Absolutely nothing happened, which was a relief. But right after people started coming back in for work, there was a power outage, which resulted in a lot of worrying for the algae species from Antarctica (they die if temperatures reach above 10°C). Luckily, they survived as power went back on when temperatures reached 9.7°C. A really close call… How single-cell organisms have me worried so much is mind-boggling to me.
Other than work, I haven’t done much. Been teaching Zoe a bunch of useless stuff, like saying “hyperbole” and other random words that you don’t really use every day. She’s picking up things like a sponge and I have to stop cursing now. So if you find me saying random words, like banana when I’m angry, you know why.
I’ll go back to my excel sheet and meta-analysis, but I’ll say a happy birthday to one of two avid commenters here.
Happy birthday, R! One day soon, I’ll visit you and we’ll have that gravlax and coffee together. Have a good one, love!
