-The duct tape over the recycling slots was removed. As evidence, I observed the careful duct tape shapes taped to the wall next to the recycling. So maybe they're able to collect recyclables when traveling on one direction but not the other, or maybe some crews are more willing to deal with sorting the recycling than other crews.

-Seats towards the end of the car seem much more bouncy than seats in the middle of the car. On the train ride out, things felt pretty smooth when I was sitting near the central stairwell. On our return trip, we were seated in seats 3 and 4, at the very end without a footrest or tray table. We eventually figured out a configuration that let us sleep (to the degree possible) where [personal profile] scrottie curled up on the seats while I stretched out on the floor.

-I only got mooned once while traveling along the Colorado River.

-As usual, the scenery along the California Zephyr route was absolutely fabulous. I saw lots of deer and a couple of jackrabbits, and plenty of trees and train tunnels.

We are back in California. Theoretically, I could have gone to work today. But I am still so angry about how much of my life got flushed down the toilet when those samples were destroyed. That was a lot of nights sleeping at the lab, empty evenings where I couldn't get more work done and couldn't go home. Mornings where I was too tired or out of it or jet-lagged to go rowing.

I feel like I had more time last year to help [personal profile] sytharin with the garden. It's hard to garden long-distance. It's hard to get exercise in the lab.

I have had to put other projects on the back burner while working on the circadian experiment because it is too hard to jump around and keep that many projects in the forefront of my mind.

So I stayed home today. Went rowing. Am getting caught up on the interwebs. And I'll probably run off on some errands in a bit. Work will still be there when I get back on Monday, and July is going to be hellishly busy.
