So instead of being paid $3.50/hour you're now paid $7/hour for post-doc work?

I apparently missed this thread yesterday. I was wondering why you hadn't been around for a while. Congratulations! Post-doc with the same lab? I hope to join your rank in the next two years. Sigh. I am what many people think of when discussing the horror stories of perptual PhDdom.

I welcome you back, I congratulate you, and I lock you to the floor with chains so that you can't leave again. :)

Seriously, congratulations on this. I'm trying to think of how many others I know (even via Internet) have reached the title of doctor, and it's a vanishingly small list.

It does, however, leave me wondering, WTF have I been doing with my life? :)
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

Congrats Dr. Tower! I have no idea what that gobbledygook you said you got your degree in even means, but it's none the less a huge accomplishment.

Well personally I think that you could use your phd material to go into cosmetic surgery. Just imagine if you could fabricate materials that could be held in skin or other often targeted areas of cosmetic surgery (wink wink) that would increase rebound against stretching (otherwise known as fight the sag!) :)

Congrats

Boom! Now you can really call me Dr. Tower!

And on top of that I got a jog offer today. Going to be moving to Dayton, OH in the very near future.

Yay! What's the job? I'm originally from Springfield which is only about 30ish minutes away. We may have to meet up on one of my trips home.

The job is with the company High Performance Technologies, Inc, and I'll be working at Wright Patterson AFB (at AFRL) doing computational bioinformatics.

Yeah, I noticed that after the edit time lapsed. Chalk it up to excitement.

I will be running with it though, I sent in the acceptance this morning.

Thank you!

See? A little validation was all I craved.
