Lull

It's turning out to be a very slow day in the lab today. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but the day is just dragging on. It's the type of day where I will do one thing that takes ten minutes, then has to sit for three hours... Then I have one more thing to do that takes 15 minutes, then sits for another two hours. Since the data analysis from last week's experiment was completed yesterday afternoon, I have a lot of down time and not much to do. Unfortunately, I'm apparently not in the mood to write either, so it's just been a very slow day. I'm sure tomorrow will be more interesting - more on that later.

What does your "boss" expect you to do while you are waiting around?

Doing other work - side projects, data analysis, reading papers, mentoring graduate students, cleaning up the lab, update my lab notebook - any other number of things. Recently, I just choose to write... these blog entries.

That is what I would be doing too ;)
