The job search has been unfruitful and frustrating, a lot more frustrating than a job search needs to be even in the current economy, so I haven't felt up to posting. (I'm having a hard time even staying informed -- even Daily Show is too depressing right now, and forget
reading science blogs. I can't sustain liberal rage and
self-pity.) Thank goodness, then, for the BP Kongsberg Underwater Image Competition
, and the cutest damn Helicocranchia pfefferi
-- "piglet squid" -- that a girl could possibly want:
The other photos are gorgeous too, and definitely worth checking out. This, combined with the fact that everyone who doesn't think I'm underqualified thinks I'm overqualified, definitely contributes to my desire to do a career 180. Anyone want a photographer or something?
