1) Finally completed a gorgeous brick of chloroplast sequences, beautifully sequenced, carefully edited and aligned (well, they aligned themselves, but still), for 13 samples of Tilia from all around the continent. End result: for this marker, they are absolutely freakin' *identical*. This is not good!! The evidence I need to prove to my committee that this project is doable is just not coming. Dropping that marker like a hot flask and going on to the next one, which will definitely work better. It has to.
2) Finished watching Season 1 of Battlestar Galactica last night. Blonde chicks fighting! Cmdr. Adama bleeding out! Pregnant cylons! !!! Was puzzled by the general response to Boomer's gunshot wound through the cheek. Not "Um, Lt., I think you need to see a therapist," but "Hey, how you feeling?" like officers with self-inflicted gunshot wounds are an everyday occurrence. In any case, I need to hurry on to Season 2 ASAP.
