Athers life has only lasted a week?
That means...2007 in Athlai time was a week at most.
Job is in jeopardy. Downside of working in research (especially at a Uni) is that it's grant-funded. Biggest downside of grant funding is that people can choose not to give it to you. The project I was hired for may not get renewed beyond the end of the year but even if it does (which is looking very likely), the group I work for is one of three centres who's funding into the new financial year is looking iffy for many reasons.
Needless to say, not waiting to find out whether I'm there until Jan or July or whatever. My boss is playing it down, saying we should get renewed, we do good work, etc. but **** that.
Sorry to hear that! (Not referring to the fact that you're healthy here, obv)
I believe I'm speaking for the majority when I say I'm sorry to hear you are in good health Top Cat.
Finishing some placement for uni. 2 weeks to go and then its party time for 4 months.

Was the only one in work today, so just spent the whole day reading the Larwood biography.
Getting thrown out of the house in 15 mins because my pregnant sister is hosting a "baby shower", whatever that is.
But atleast it means I get to go to the pub and watch the rugby.
Made - Checked in my diary this morning to see I had an easy week next week
Ruined - I'm told an hour later that next Thursday I've got to do an unwinnable application in front of the Judge from hell and on behalf of the client from hell - why is this you ask? Well its because my new ****ing partner has teed this hearing up but oh dear she's going on holiday next week so poor old ****ing me gets lumbered - what really ****s me off is that this is the third time she has pulled this sort of stunt and this time she didn't have the common ****ing decency to tell me she'd dumped on me or even that she was going on ****ing holiday at all - I had not a ****ing clue as she skipped gaily out of the office at 5pm last night - should have smelt a ****ing rat when she smiled sweetly at me and said "Cheerio Martin" for the first time since last time she dropped me in it - then just to rub more salt into the wound she hasn't even prepared half the ****ing paperwork so I'll have to do that too - Bitch
Ruined: No result for the first 50 over match of the season, were in a strong position too.
Made: Nothing like a few tail-end wickets to make you feel alright about it. [/selfishcock]
