Been a while since I've posted. I feel a bit like I'm in limbo....like I'm just waiting and waiting and waiting for things to happen. I get to choose a thesis lab on the 24th, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to get my first choice. But my first choice isn't the lab that I'm in at the moment. That would be fine if my current project in this lab was going well. But I've pretty much proved that what we thought was going to be an article in Nature is instead just a lot of nothing. So I'm stuck puttering around, re-running scripts just for the hell of it, sticking a few things into a presentation, and generally just being bored.

Dude, is the thesis lab the big enchilada?
What is the lab you want doing?
BORT THE SPLEENMOBILE!
that was the name of my friend arianna's volvo that she drove in high school. i know i was trying to remember it a while ago, and i have no idea why.
It's the big enchilada in my book. This would be the lab that works on the structure of proteins bound to DNA. The best part is that the lab is REALLY interested in molecular machines, so I'd not only be getting to do biology, but I'd be working with biological ROBOTS. Mua-hahaha!
Bort the spleenmobile!? I remember you trying to remember that name, but how could you ever forget a name like that?
you should not put an enchilada in your book at all, jacob. it gets the pages all gooky.
Not to worry, they have biological robots designed specifically for the removal of Mexican food from paper. (Developed during the Great Guadalajaran Paper Plate Shortage of '74. Gas prices were cheap there, but lines for picnic supplies were a mile long).
