We are usually extremely busy during certain periods of the year (grant applications, award nominations, year-end stats) but every now and then we get a lull that is mind-numbingly boring. This is one of those lulls. We got several major grants in earlier this year and all the researchers are taking a break from writing. It took about a month for everyone to stop looking like zombies, after the last big push.

The problem with down time is you always get some keener who tries to create make-work projects.

The really nice thing (from my perspective) is that I'm leaving before the final year-end, hair-pulling, teeth-gritting, auditing and annual report meetings happen (June)
Inside me is a skinny person crying to get out, but I can usually shut the b*tch up with cookies
