Glumming down

Too much time on my own can lead to the glums - it is not a depression, as it is quickly fixed with an outbreak of social events. Glum means a lack of get up and get things done, which leads to a lack of self esteem, which tends to mean I get even less done. But the solution must be balanced with the need to sit here on my own and write this thesis.

Am supposed to be writing about the use of herbicide resistance as a marker gene for the study of gene flow in my literature review. There is no literature on this subject, because the use of herbicide resistance genes is such an obvious thing to do that no-one has felt the need to justify it! I remember finding a reference last year to the blindingly obvious like this last year, and how happy I was. Now I need another miracle.

Sprog passed his Plunket assessment today, has put on 700g since the last visit which is a sterling effort. Yay sprog. Yay me.

Crikey, that was a quick response - yes I'd love to. Monday or Tuesday is best for me...
