Bear, you need to leave the residue in the cup... It's like sour dough starter.

I set my stuff down, put my lunch in the fridge, get my coffee and water, and sit down. I try to eat my bagel, but without fail a colleague comes over and talks to me for 20-60 minutes about stuff he's going to talk about in our staff meeting anyway.

If you take your coffee black...

While I don't ever use sugar, I do like my coffee creamed. And I use real half-and-half. Interesting things happen to half-and-half overnight. It's best to nip it in the bud.

I usually remember to clean my cup before taking time off. One time I forgot and the I swear that the growth in the cup was one day away from achieving sentience and self-awareness. And then where would I have been?

Oh, I hope no SciFi channel execs are reading this.... I may have just given them the idea for their next really bad movie.

do you think that it would be worse than an un-frozen wooly mammoth brought back to life by an alien posession?

Look around and say, "Wait, what am I doing here, I don't work here anymore, I don't work in an office anymore"

First thing: take off winter coat and turn on computer. Second thing: wait 10 minutes for computer to boot up and complete login. (I usually do paperwork during this step.) Third thing: check e-mail

coming to, not coming in...



No office - so no coffee allowed.
When I come into the lab I start the computer, then I get the tubes out of the thermocycler.

Eek is right! It's actually boot and login. Which means you need to be there at two points during this exercise and can't just go get something else done.
