I should really blog more regularly, I keep losing track of time! Anyway it seems like all and sundry is getting married this year I swear .. everywhere I go, I hear that so and so is getting married/got proposed to *this* year etcetcetc. Anyway, just got back and am currently procrastinating from having dinner as we just had sui jiao tang while waiting from traffic to clear along the AYE.
Today, a few of us found that someone made the PBS solution (it's basically saline) wrongly and made ethanol instead over the weekend and basically screwed up everyone else's experiments, trust me, saline and ethanol is a HUGE ass difference. We didn't know who it was at that time, so there I was, really peeved cos I was one of those affected and thus bitching about who it might've been, who could've been so dumb, to mix up ETHANOL and SALINE .. it even smells totally different! And after the discussion was over and I was half sulking at the comp and admiring riendel 's rings (and packaging), one of the grad students (looking kinda freaked out) came up to me and said "Erm. It was me. I'm so sorry for having wasted yr experiment etcetc" Anyone else and I would've gotten really mad, but she's a good friend and as I looked at her, I didn't even know what to say, the poor girl looked so scared! I didn't feel angry anymore and was just like "It's ok .. don't worry abt it" I guess it's just different when it comes to friends. It definitely helps that u are nice when u screw up, people are more willing to forgive. Anyway we are keeping it quiet, within the circle of trust, cos I can only imagine the explosion that would happen when the REST of the lab finds out.
In other things, I think my new year resolution would be to procrastinate less. I can't say stop procrastinating cos that's almost impossible. I have a million and one things to do and all I can think of are inane things like why my alarm clock is still 2 hrs slow even after I've changed the battery (It's a new battery btw, unless I got ripped off). I'm also secretly half addicted to the channel 8 9pm show. Bah.
