So, I had an agreement with a guy at the Utah Division of Wildlife resources to get a set of new natural samples. You know, those funny things I need to get data? And graduate? Then, bureaucratic nonsense started. First, I couldn't reach the guy I'd made arrangements with. So I found his boss and asked what was going on. Now I have to talk to some new guy who evidently has to make sure my sample request is "legal" and a "good use of department resources" before he'll agree to help me. I've spent the last week working on a proposal for him rather than working on my thesis proposal I'm supposed to hand out to my committee in, oh, a week. Argh.
I think for stress relief I'm going to stare for a few minutes at the face of my beautiful unborn daughter.
Ah, that's much better.
For those who don't know, she's due July 23rd-ish.
