My next work purchase...

After a rather hectic week trying to get all my shit together for the trip to Canberra, it was nice to receive a letter in my pigeon hole telling my that my promotions application has been successful. So...starting from January next year, I'll have the word 'senior' added to my title.

Hmmm....I wonder if I should use the salary increase to buy some new leather elbow patches? Every academic should own at least one jacket with leather elbow patches right?

...or, better still, maybe I can get a new pair of nerdy scientist glasses. This pair looks pretty intellectual dont you think?

...Ohhh...what about a new lab coat? I don't actually own a lab coat. A lab coat adds instant credibility and will make me look 'learned'. Hmmm...lab coat...

Congratulations Mr. Senior - sorry that should probably be Senior Prof. I hope a purchase of the French bubbly stuff is also in the planning!

Sounds like you're putting together a sexy outfit there ;p

Campbell - Thanks but it will be a few years before I make Professor. Soon to be a senior lecturer.

EK - Yes...I think so too.

Congratulations on your promotion.

Leather patches might make you look like a rugger bugger.
