With crunchy fresh lab update! (Forgive me Dopers. I’m bored and can’t be 100 yards away from a bathroom.)
Dr. Boss somehow made my resignation disappear, I’m being laid off instead. After our last exchange, I was very surprized to hear this. Apparently, Dr. Boss is very blunt (and thick) and what he was trying to tell me was that the funding for my position was running out, with no chance of renewal or other funds.
Right now, I’m burning up some vacation time and trying to translate the Depart of Labor’s information website into English.
The good news: I’m an author on a second research publication! (With a junior researcher I helped up until everything went all political.)
Not bad for a rodent wrangler.
