Lab book hell

I always say I'm going to change.  I'm going to do things properly this time....
And in the end I spent 2-3 hours compiling bits of paper and cut up protocols to paste into my lab book...trying to make sense of what I meant when I scribbled something down.  And then it just looks 10x worse in my left-handed scrawl.

But we all know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  And I don't even follow that road all the it is no wonder to find myself having spent 3 hours working on my lab book again.

Of course the last phrase reminds me of a scene from Four Rooms:
"If the simple fact that I didn't want your bloated, 
dead body lying out on the floor is love, then no 
wonder we find ourselves as we are at this very 

But I digress....

I wish I could figure out how be better about the whole lab book thing. I think I need to go with the 
binder approach I've seen in a collaborator's lab.  And my chicken scratch is horrid.  Seriously...
I think anyone would much rather see typed pages than this crap.  I'll leave the original scrawled 
versions for posterity, and the typed ones for actual use.
