Tuesday Kicks Monday's Booty

On Monday, I got out of bed late, put on a shirt with multiple stains down the front and made it into to work to find three, yes three, plates chock-full of contaminants. (Contaminants at this stage of the game are so embarrassing.)

On Tuesday, I get out of bed on time, put on clothes containing no visible stains and made it into work early enough to beat Magnum, PI to our meeting. Once he arrived, we discussed the paper I am working on and finalized experiments for the last figure. At this point, I am pretty happy. I've barely been awake two hours and a new paper is on the horizon.

Then........

I return to my computer and check my email only to find that my manuscript was accepted for publication with minor revisions, where minor revisions equal semantics.

o.O.

That's right people. Tuesday is looking up.

Awesome.
That's a pretty fast turnaround for a manuscript... Didn't you just join the lab?

SM- I don't usually expect much from a Tuesday, but that was a good one.

TR - Thanks!
You're right, I did just start in this lab and I'm not quite that awesome. The paper is from grad school lab and it has been two painful years in the making.
However, I am hoping to bust out a paper from this lab in the next six months.
