I bombarded 350 of my Arabidopsis babies today, three lines, 115 plants per line. That meant 2 hours of preparation (covering gold particles with the different constructs,  tags, transport of the plant trays, etc) and 4 additional shooting hours. I'm wrecked. Samplings will begin tomorrow and they'll finish on Sunday morning, then I'm departing to see [personal profile] milosflaca and [profile] lummie, yipee!
When I return I expect symptoms from every virus-shot plant. :)

Other stuff:
Lenin called me yesterday  from a party, and he was drunk, again (tell me something new :S) . I'm fearing he's drinking a bit too much. (5 days a week that's what I call an excess) He told me that in France is very common  and that they are allowed to drink everywhere, even in the laboratories, and I'm reluctant to believe so. For me, that's nostalgia mixed with beer and self-abandon and lab stress. And, again, the old story about sharing his life with me and blah blah blah... I hate that he never tells me he can't live without me when sober. Or maybe he tells me but a lot less adamant and vehement.

and... I discovered a bunch of new freckles on my skin. I'm depressed. I hate sun.

Ok, hugs to everyone. Or kisses. choose yourself, I'm generous xD. :P

about yesterday rant.
I was so upset and outraged I didn't know what to do... I needed time to assimilate my new reality.
Hugs and my sincere gratefulness  to everyone showing concern.

now... time to learn how to live with new bases.
