geez I'm a nerd

I found a mistake on the exam, although it doesn't matter for anything. It refers to the Arabidopsis ecotypes Col and Ler, but I know that it's actually supposed to be written Ler because it stands for Landsberg erecta. I only know that because I did my undergrad thesis in Arabidopsis. Picky picky. Makes me think of how Rob McClung (I think it was him and not Eric Schaller) made me correct the italics on all of the restriction enzyme names in my thesis.

I felt kind of grumbly and pissy today, but finally got over the hump after lying in bed for an hour after dinner, then vacuuming, then reading in the Stitch 'n' Bitch book I bought today. But now I'm cheerily working on my exam although it's past bedtime. Better to stay up late tonight than tomorrow night, anyway.
