Mar 28, Day 7

I spent most of today feeling sick, some combination of seasickness and the Hershey you-know-what's, so it was mostly back to bed for me 9 I was going to write up which cores were what (per jaymz' request, but am still a little weak kneed, so anyhow, hope things are going better for you guys.

Actual Mar 27, Day 6

So yeah, I keep writing these after midnight, speaking of errors, so my dates have been a little off. I forgot to mention that we had a safety meeting yesterday. I forgot to mention it because it was a pretty short. Anyhow, today I helped with a gravity core, and running the long core. My long core job today was sitting in the basket and helping to push the 'bullets' into the tube to help extract the core. Not too much else to report honestly. Hope that things are going good for you guys! They put some Styrofoam cups down with the multicore, you guys should write me and tell me if you want one, because I have pretty much given up on doing them for myself :-p
