My New Job 
13th-Apr-2009 11:07 am
webcomics, science
This weekend I have supervised young children playing with boats and LEGO and drum machines and Kaleidoscopes, helped them dress up as dogs and ducks and robots, helped them build bridges that go above my head, or that they can walk on, explained cross-polar microscopy and dry ice to adults and older children, watched my reflection do strange and wonderful things on a wall, and made a piece of metal float in mid air.

And I am getting paid for it.

Of course, it tires me out something chronic, but it is very much beyond amazing that I'm doing something I love so much - hanging around a museum and entertaining kids - and getting paid for it. My job rocks.

 - oh, except for the part where I have to wear orange

But you'd look so cute in orange.

:( Why you be hating on orange?

It's really very much not my colour.

That sounds utterly brilliant!

Yay awesome job!

That job sounds like so much fun! It's pretty cool to have a job in which you can step back and say to yourself, "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this!"

I'd come upstairs and say "hi" on my dinner break, but those little darlings you've been playing so happily with have given me a sinus infection so I'm not able to come in to work until Monday. Boo! :(
