I wanted two root beer floats tonight, but we didn’t have any root beer in the house.
I made Coke floats instead.
We only had enough vanilla ice cream for one float, so I used chocolate in the other one.
They were not really root beer floats, but they were really nice.
And apparently my wife never had a root beer float, so this was her first experience.
The floats were an end to a long day which involved: getting fewer privileges at work, trouble shooting a problem at work, talking about relationships, having a birthday lunch with a friend, organizing vacations, doing laundry, cleaning cat poo, and at the end I got floats!
Previously I had thought it was alright to watch Youtube videos at work while I sorted seeds. Boss said no today. I’m disappointed, but its not unreasonable of him to ask this.
Isolating DNA from rice leaves hasn’t been going well. We’ve been getting errors and we finally narrowed down the error to a salt we use.
The stock salt we use to make the salt solution looked dirty though. I cleaned it. We’ll see if it’s good next week.
I talked with my coworker while sorting seeds about his future plans with his girlfriend. He wants to move in with her, but she thinks marriage is the next step.
They’ll probably just live close to each other next year. Right now they live around an hour apart.
One of my old friends from my organic chemistry class sophomore year had a birthday today!
I took him out to lunch at Taco Bell (he chose it). We talked about life and stuff. It was a lot of fun!
When I got home I organized my Memorial Day vacation with my father-in-law.
Another old friend, from high school this time, wants to hang out on the actual Monday of Memorial Day weekend. Organized stuff to make it work.
Laundry and cleaning the litter box are pretty typical chore things.
And chocolate ice cream in vanilla Coke to end the day!
