smirk - by me

running on fumes

did not sleep well last night, maybe 4 or 5 hours. Woke up early, got in at work at 7.40 am, worked until 10am (incubatuion period for 3 hrs), no food in house, hungry.

Got back at one, worked until 2, incubation period for 1hr.

Stupid repetitive, boring assay. Wash 10 96-well plates 6 times in 1XPBST (each wash is one rinse, then fill all wells and leave to soak). Put stuff on plates. Wait. Wash plates 6 times. etc. etc etc.

Not halucinating yet, but fear I may well soon. It's been a long time since I've been this tired. I've consumed nothing but coffee, water and chocolate today. If I were a car, I would be running on fumes. I'd also be a beat up, old, dented yellow monstrosity with one blue door and broken headlights.

I'm supposed to run a game tonight. Probably won't happen. Not going to train tomorrow - need sleep or I'll die. Stupid insomnia. Only ten temazepam left. Time to go back to the doctor...
