Two absolutely life-shattering things happened today at work (and it's only 3:00!). The first is that I finally figured out how to submit stories to Futures (science fiction published in Nature). The second is that, for the first time ever, my cloning worked the first time around! Well, to be perfectly fair it worked in 3/5 cases, but I the remaining 2/5 are less essential, and possibly toxic to bacteria. I'll work on that.
It's a rare day when the experiment that is supposed to take a week actually only takes a week and a half. And all of that just goes to confirm once again that thunderstorms are my lucky charm.
