Got a job!

Yup, it's a miracle. It's not doing anything that I was doing before but it's a phD starting a new set of labs in an inorganic setting. I'm perfect for starting up labs, it's my specialty. I can also come into one that's a mess and revamp it, I think it's an ocd thing but whatever, it works. Both B and I will be making (combined) a bit over what only one of us earned in San Diego and he is even getting hazardous pay. Health insurance is also going to cost us. It'll be like $40 less than what we're paying for private but at least the benefits are better. Ah, back to the working world of toxic/explosive substances. Someone remind me why I wanted to be a chemist again?

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

now with that said, you like the field because blowing up stuff (literally or potentially) is FUN! *wow, spoken like a true American there....

And, looking into J's backyard, I can still see the last vestiges of Michelle-dom, the mad scientist aspects, with the gargantuan plants/weeds that spawned as a result of test tube and petri experiments! (The rain only makes them more gargantuan!)

Crap those plants are still alive? We planted 4 tomatoes and 2 melon plants. I thought the all died!
