This week I have been assaying the hemolymph samples I collected from the California cricket species, to measure how much protein, carbohydrate, and lipid they contain.

No big surprises with protein or carbohydrate, and in addition, I did an amazingly good job with the carbohydrate assay, so that was great.

The lipid assay today...did not go quite as well as I would have liked. In general, lipids are a pain in the butt. I'm too tired to even describe what went wrong and why, but I'll try again tomorrow. Not everything went wrong, really - I had around a 50% success rate. It's just the other 50% that are frustrating.

Last weekend, after some fun times with MarioKart, I browsed through the Wii-U video game options, and discovered that I could get a version of the NES RPG "Earthbound."

I know there's something else I should be doing with my evenings, but, um, well. It's like getting sucked into really good fiction, although admittedly without the linguistic benefits, where I'm back in that mode of "Everything else that I am doing is just the time in between this thing I'd rather be absorbed in."
