|This makes my brain go numb. |
Nothing makes me want to be outside more than 6 hours spent thus: put the purple circle over the green dot. Repeat 500,000 times. I wish that was an exaggeration. I can recall many bad days on the trail that beat a good day at microarray quantification. Even days that involved frozen rain or leeches.
On the bright side--there's a large comfy chair in the secret office where I do this work, for quick restorative eye resting sessions, and I have a window that I can see out of without pressing my face up against the glass to catch an sliver of sky without buildings. I can watch the storms roll in across the parking lot now.
Things are looking up!
