Deadlines

You know what's really, really, really annoying?

Finding a grant application announcement that PERFECTLY fits some directions your group is moving and getting all excited and calling collaborators to ask their opinions and then...re-reading the small print and realizing you've missed the fucking deadline.

EDITED TO ADD:

You know what's really, really, really AWESOME?

Finding a grant application announcement that PERFECTLY fits some directions your group is moving and getting all excited and calling collaborators to ask their opinions and then...re-reading the small print and realizing you've missed the fucking deadline...and then one of your collaborators emails you to point out that in your sleep-deprived zombie state you misread the deadline information and there is still 2 months to go!

And then your Vice Chancellor (my boss) says, "Of course you should apply! You should be PI, not co-PI. You need this. Do this and I can get you on the tenure track."
