But why on earth would an owner put a 20 year old beagle with cancer though orthopedic and abdominal surgery? Some things are just cruel.
I chatted briefly with the tech manager the other day about schedule, and she mentioned that she's "heard only great things about me." So I'm happy. I really do like my job, no matter how tired I get.
I'm going to be participating in a sleep drug study, something about "shift worker sleep syndrome". A double blind study for some short acting stimulant. I hope I don't get the placebo. I did an interview on the phone today, and I'm waiting on a call back.

Heh ... I'm a guinea pig!
Off to dinner with stephinextremis, then work. I'm picking up Michael in the morning to spend Thursday with me, which will be a nice break.
