The Perfect Patch

Someone.. Anyone.. please tell me one way to keep my cool, everytime my patch clamping setup fails to deliver – not because of my own incompetence.. but because of some other dirty pig of a human’s incompetence.

P.S: On the same vein – I never knew keeping one’s “cool” could be so difficult when it is 3 degrees outside.

P.P.S: Ive got to stop living weekend to weekend. Its screwing my already non-existent sleep cycles.

P.P.P.S: I wish I could have written a nice, happy post about how beautiful lausanne is (which it, undoubtedly is) and how nice and friendly and helpful the people are (which they, ofcourse are); how amazing and uber-cool the work in my lab is (its the stuff of dreams, I say!) and how living alone is the best thing that could have happened to me (which, as a matter of fact, it is)… But I didnt, and such is life.

P.P.P.P.S: Excuse me, while I go and worry more about how I will carry my new microwave up the hill to my studio apartment and when to buy the next stash of groceries.
