As you've probably seen already, I've set up the poll for our next mini-carnival. You can keep a check on the results of voting here. It's set so that a person can only vote once... well, at least once per browser :P

I have voting set to close at 23:59 Eastern time on Tues. Aug. 31. If you want to bump it up to the 27th (so you'll have 2 weekends to write), let me know!

Sounds good to me. I'll keep spamming it once a day until then.

Those polling results are interesting thus far. I wouldn't have expected those results. hmmm.
Thanks for setting it up BB!

BB, who's got beef with you to give you a -1 on the post, I'll show them! Give you my +1 to bring you right back to zero.

Taking the top spot on the poll by a slim margin is "What I wish I knew..."

Dr. Becca raised a concern about treading path that's been well beaten recently. But I think we can still do something with it, even get creative and have a little fun with it. I'm sure many of us had "before grad school/postdoc/interview" sort of phases in mind, but really anything would be fair game-first conference, committee meetings, first departmental seminar, teaching/TAing, excess intake of EtOH with your boss... Other ideas?

Also any volunteers for a roundup post of the carnival?

I think this topic is wide open and we're obligated to write on it! I'm excited for it :)

OK, if we've got a little flexibility, I think we can do this without, as you say, beating a dead horse. Are we still all doing the same thing, or could we each have our own sub theme? I was thinking of something like "before moving to a big expensive city" but I like drinking w/ boss, too!

I say the theme is broadly set at "What I wish I knew before", and then each of us can pick the noun, verb, or phrase to follow :)

So we can do a post like, "I wish I knew my prom date was a filthy skank." Not saying its true, just trying to hypothetically see what we can post on.

I hope that someday I cross paths with GR so that I can buy him a beer. Srsly, I just spit coffee out my nose.

Fine B-Rizzle, I'll tone it down and post on, "I wish I knew that I was about to get slapped in the groin with a runaway gas line and end up with a giant black nut."
