The Plight of the Post-Doc

The latest in lab fashion

Today was my birthday (NO FOOLING), and I officially have the coolest boyfriend anywhere, because he got me this:

Namaste.

He chose the Pearl Station patch because it's where Dharma researchers purportedly observe, record, and report the behavior of the button-pushers in the Swan Station, much like I observe, record, and report the behavior of my rats.  However, as we learn in the final episodes of Season 2 ("Live Together/Die Alone"), the reports actually just end up in a big pile in the middle of the island somewhere, never to be read.  Much like my papers, but the island in this metaphor is PubMed, or the internet or something.

I have no idea what the fuck teevee show or whatever you are alluding to, but it does look like a symbol for the morris water maze.

Oh shit, I forgot your birthday! Which I'm supposed to remember because it's the same weekend as my anniversary... except L. and I forgot our anniversary too this year, until the last moment. Anyway, happy birthday!

It's a great gift! Maybe someday I'll get one like it (from a different station perhaps).

(Liked your thoughts on the whole Glam Mag v/s a comfy niche dilemma by the way)
