TEM in St Andrews again

Nearly posted an empty entry as i hit return as if I was writing an email, lucky LJ does not allow it

Waiting for the TEM to ramp up at the minute. I have decided on what sample I am going to look at first which is good and then I just need to decide on what other ones to look at next. I have 12 negatives so hopefully I will be able to finish them by the end of the day and so I can develop them.

I had a dream about flying last night, although when i dream about flying it is not flying exactly but more of a sort of hovering/levitation. I think if i was actually flying then that would be less dream logical as my dream logic comes up on why it is possible to hover. I can't remember it exactly now but it has something to do with the wind (no i don't mean farting). I think it comes from when you are walking and a strong wind blows behind you, your walking speed increases. that does mean however that you can not hover into the wind and my dream logic would have made that impossible.

I am going to Stay at gemmas on friday and saturday as she now has a spare key. Gemma is away at Aberdeen but said it was fine for me to stay there. right enough, all i need the flat for is to sleep and have a shower in the morning. I do plan to stop before 10pm tonight as TopGear speacial is on tonight because of comic releif.

This is now my fifth month of travelling up to use the microscope in St Andrews and the 4/5 hour drive is losing its novelty value. I feel I only have just got back to liverpool before I am heading up again. I was thinking about taking the week of the 9th off, and coming up to scotland, and finishing it with working on the microscope at the end of the week as the university closes down on the 6th (good friday) and the 9th (easter monday), but then I worked out that I would only have been back down for two weekends in liverpool before travelling back up, which put me off doing that.

Busy time when i get back, I will see Greg on the sunday and then monday I'll travel back to liverpool, Tuesday morning, analysing results, the afternoon I am helping one of the students on the TEM. wednesday more analysing and studying the safety handbook for the pop quiz on friday (due to the fire) and then thursday I will be back on the TEM to do some more samples. As far as I know I don't have anything planned for the following week but will need to have a meeting with Matt which i will have to arrange.

Anyway better prepare the first sampleas i have about 7 minutes before the TEM finishes ramping.
