Happiness...

...is a full and productive lab.

So far this year I've snatched supertech from the jaws of dysfunction, picked up a very good grad student, started a new and talented undergrad, and am working with a very bright high school student.

The lab is humming along.

So much so that I've had to suspend the weekly beatings.

Can I come work for you?

You bet.

when do I start? I've about had enough of this mess.

You have a useful undergrad?

I thought that was an oxymoron.

Is tomorrow too soon?

Anon.:
I've had a whole series of useful undergrads. You need to spend a lot of time and effort to get them up and running, but once they've grasped a few basics they can be as good as many grad students. Think about it - these are the kids who will be the really good grad students.
