Eesh, what a day. Although a bit of scanning and a vaguely decent-looking patch clamp recording were managed in the morning, the bulk of the day was taken up by a group editing session on the draft of a woefully underachieving paper written by some collaborators. This was sometimes amusing, often frustrating, but above all characterised by hunger. The meeting was scheduled impromptu at 1.30, just when I was aiming to get lunch, and proceeded to drag on until after 6.00. Having also, as is often the case, forgone breakfast, I was absolutely fucking ravenous by the time I got home -- and I still can't eat because I'm dining with Ian and he is currently finishing his piano practice.

There's little chance of me wasting away, what with my reserve stores and all, but I am beginning to get mightily pissed off...

I cannot help but feel partly responsible; had I been able to get out of my meeting in a timely manner for our weekly munch-fest, I'd have had you lunched by 12:45.

Are you going to punish me? Also, I hope that you are, by now, somewhat sated.

Ah, the thunderstorm has arrived; I may go out and sit in the rain for awhile.
