I've lost some weight in the last couple of months. I look forward to the day where I can look in the mirror and not feel complete disgust. Also, I haven't necked myself yet. That counts for something, right?

IN THE SPIRIT OF VERN...

I'm attending a science conference soon, and someone I have interacted with professionally but only via phone/email (she's kind of in a power position over me) emailed to ask if I'd be attending the dinner cruise (!!!) that is one night of the meeting, so we could meet/talk in person. I said I would indeed see her there, and that it would be nice to talk, and she responds with:
I did the cruise 2 years ago and it was a nice dinner with lakeside view. The year before was dinner at XXXXX, another nice view. It was easier then to ditch the unwanteds (not talking about you!) as opposed to being trapped on a boat.
what does this mean!?!? is an unwanted someone lame who's hitting on her? and if I'm not an unwanted does that mean I'm a wanted and therefore :bigdog: !?!?

I'm mostly posting about this here because doing so guarantees I will not be fucking this chick :idea:

I thought it was tedious to write 27 pages of research proposal

then I tried reading those 27 pages

I'm about to die

I've slept 5 of the last ~50 hours - probably a personal record for slavishly staring at a computer

my eyes are decrepit

i would think given your area that there would be a lot of demand for you to do the research, does that not lower the bar for the proposals?

yeah, I am definitely playing on easy mode in some respects

the thing i'm talking about above will have a pretty good chance of getting funded, which is a good motivator, but still, somebody's gotta sit down and write it. this one was a "program" proposal which is like, 8 lab-head-level scientists collaborating with a certain aim. writing about my field isn't so bad, but rapidly learning another field and writing about it with authority is taxing. there are a few scene papas "contributing" to the project, but in reality they're too busy/disaffected to spend too much time on the paperwork, so... I'm the guy! final PDF was 130 pages, but most of that is budget nonsense. the folder on my computer dedicated to this proposal has almost 400 files in it, and none of that is fluff.

I have another thing due monday which would be just me proposing alone - would be way better for me if it was awarded but odds are much slimmer. it's basically been back-burner'd because of the thing above, which will make me feel like a total moron if the above thing doesn't end up getting the money!

I’ve been in a new position at my job for less than a month and I’m already number one out of all the employees.


I’m king turd on shit mountain.
Apparently I was number one in the nation last month.
