03:24 pm - Most Likely to be Fired for "doodling"
I'm going to be evil. Otherwise, life is ok. I had managed to forget for this morning that this was not just any end of the semester. Damn.

Yesterday was the chem banquet. I got my beaker mug. It has been said that, to chem majors, the beaker mug is almost more important than the diploma. It is a KIMAX glass blown beaker-turned-mug (500 mL), which has the CMU crest on it, Chemistry Department, and then our names - all etched in. Rather than "Dan" or "Daniel", neither of which I felt described me, I had "DMV" etched. It is excellent. I'll upload pictures at some point, perhaps. Also during the banquet, Dave offered me the option to work for him month-to-month if I didn't want commitments. Hmmm. Perhaps I'll just go with one of Seth's proposed projects which would be working for the two of them.

I was also given a virtual certificate of the above subject. Fair enough. Patterson asked me at the time whether I was aware that my work was being sold on the secondary markets. Hmmm. Other than a number of problem sets and whatnot, I believe Staley is the only professor with "real" pttrnmkr "works". But its an amusing concept. And it keeps me in good spirits as I watch my latest distraction collecting dust.

But do you have the bonus track?

So the problem is that you aren't ready for commitment?

So Patterson found your works on eBay?

I don't know. Whatever Lazarus has.

No. That's was just Dave's assumption. I'd like a sense of commitment.

No, I don't think that's it. I'm not sure what to make of the comment. Other than its very typical Patterson.

Nope, you don't.

So what are you planning to commit yourself to aside from an asylum?

Cryptic.

dropped and broke my beaker mug today. couldn't even last until graduation.
makes a very fitting statement about my brief laboratory career.

i have a mental image of our lab group facing Kermit the Frog: if you pass us, we promise to become theoreticians, and never do experimental chemistry again...
