Saturday, June 4th: preparing for our new kittens!
We are going to Petsmart to pick-up supplies for the three new orange kittens we are buying from Amy Davenport. We are excited to make a home for them! We are going to get them next weekend. I was looking up what material to use in water bowls. There are so many choices! We will do our best to be good pet owners.
Friday, June 3rd: the tRNA I isolated is the correct one
Home: John got me frozen dumplings tonight from the Great Wall Supermarket, and I had some microwaved. They were surprisingly tasty. I've been craving these things. I wish I had proper chopsticks at home so I could eat them correctly. These weren't covered all the way in wrapping, but I liked them just the same. I ate them in soy sauce mixed with Mongolian fire oil. Very awesome.
Thursday, June 2nd: isolated a tiny amount of a tRNA
Nusaiba Baker officially joined the lab today! Other stories of the day: I braved the pouring rain for a cookie at Allie's Cookie Store. I decided to go home instead of staying all hours to run a gel on the tRNA.
Wednesday, June 1st: Might have got some tRNA
Khalid has been gone on a trip the last few days. He comes back tomorrow. The other news is that I got to eat out at a Chinese restaurant with labmates: Yuan, Yvonne, Han and Victor. I got to eat pork dumplings! My favorite. I also got egg fried rice. It was so good, and I felt so nice and full afterwards. They also had tea, which was delicious. Best lunch I've had all year.
