Not one SINGLE comment??

Seriously, folks!! I had 60 hits on this thing today, and not one single comment??!!! What are y'all asleep out there??!!!

I wish I were asleep. I've been up since 5 this morning. Got a text message from my boss. I was like, you know what time it is here??!! But, I had found out that my loyal lab monkey (aka - technician) was suddenly no longer employed. I had sent a number of messages to Taz about this and he hadn't responded... so I guess it was good he finally got back to me, but 5 IS SO DARN EARLY!!

It's also hard to make sure my research program is running well and smooth via text messages. As I mentioned, my internet is costing a fortune and so email for me is very sporadic.

Ok, now on to the good stuff. Got stood up last night. AH called me at 9:00 this morning and said he had problems with the plane. I was all like "oh, I'm sorry to hear it crashed and your fingers all got broken". He was all "No, nothing like that. I didn't break any fingers either". Oh, I said. Then why the #$%!! didn't you call to tell me you weren't going to show up for dinner?? So, I've gone out with this guy (and his wife) once, and he's ALREADY in the dog house.... heh.

So, today we're going to tour the city a bit, and I hope to get some interesting pictures for you. At the very least, I hope to have some good stories. So far I've been pretty lame. To tell the truth, I'm lonely and depressed. It's hard being so far away, and not being able to just pick up the phone and call my Mom, or friends, and what-not.

Anyway, I'll be back to the computer while y'all are sleeping. Unless you are up late!! So, more to come, but later!!!

as far as your lab monkey knows, he is still unemployed. and as far as comments, mine are all childish and probably fart based. but if you insist, i will start leaving some (comments not farts).

THe first time I traveled for BER I was gone from home for 2 days. I called your father 12 times , and I called YOU 7 times. Lonely? I understand. In spite of it, make the most of your travels. Mothers of young children don't get to travel much. This may be your last time ever in Australia. Enjoy the hell out of it. And find some darn kangaroos!!

OK, a comment!

Blah, blah, blah Australia - I'm waiting for you to get to the good stuff - on to VN! :)

Glad it is going well, though.

I was waiting for you to get back and then surprise you by knocking on your door wearing a gorilla mask.
