Silver Lining

I should mention, however, that I got a phonecall from Tom Gillespie today at Emory (the primate parasitologist) regarding my PVA-query (this was obviously before I discovered the closet full of red tape).

Not only was he incredibly nice in answering my questions, but he took additional time and asked me really thorough questions to help me formulate my tangential hypotheses.

I will probably be analyzing my samples next summer at his lab at Emory too. The good news was so invigorating and thrilling to hear -- I am trying to remember what that felt like before my phonecall to Fisher Scientific and subsequent frustration.
