Yesterday I transferred two gels backwards overnight. (In my defense, it's been about four years since I regularly ran Westerns, and the transfer apparatus in this lab is set up with exactly the opposite orientation of my last lab).
So today I got to pour new gels and re-run them in between other experiments. Set my gels to run super-low voltage while I ran to pick up my Bean-girl from school and get dinner on the table. After dinner I went back in. Just came home and everyone is asleep--including Husband, who fell asleep next to our little Legume.
Oh, and it's Legume's birthday tommorrow! And we forgot to get her a present in time (although we did order a cake). And I even had a three-day weekend in which to go shopping. How many kinds of an idiot am I?
