I'm so happy with how this turned out. I'm working on a PhD, and this is one of those questions that we all ask each other all the time, even though the answer is almost never "Brilliantly! I get up every day chomping at the bit to transform my field, nay, the world!" This is a dream answer for those times when someone's only asking so that they can feel better about how little they've accomplished when they hear you've done even less.

I made the pattern with pencil crayons and paper this time, instead of a program. I was originally intending to continue that green stripe out to the edges and make a circle around the rim, but that turned out to be too hard, so I improvised some flower clusters to fill the space.

Gave it to a friend in my program, and she loves it. Grin

Really cool. Cute cuss word crafts are my favorites.

Isn't it sad when the general public gets all uppity when you're in the middle of a research project? I experienced that during my BS is biology, I can hardly imagine how annoyed you are.

It's hard to get annoyed when my research consists of getting paid to read books all day. But yeah, some of the questions and comments you get from people can be surprising. If I had a dollar for every time someone assumed that doing a PhD only takes a year or two...

I believe my entire lab would beg me to make these if I showed them. Maybe make one for myself (adjusted for the work place) and see what happens.  Grin

I need one of these for my office! There are times when F--- You is the only acceptable response to the question. Maybe on a pillow so I could throw it at people... Awesome!

Ahahahahaaha!  That is fantastic!  What a clever idea; I need something similar for my workplace.  "How's your tax return going? *()&#$^ you!"  I can hand out flyers to every client that drops off their return the first week in April.  <3

Yes, I think that the design could be altered to fit almost any well-intentioned-but-frustrating question.

How's my chemo going? FUCK YOU that's how it's going.
How's my divorce going?
How's potty training going?
etc. etc. etc.

Even just "How's my day going?"

as a fellow grad student I believe this is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time and might just have to make something similar and hang it on the door of my office at home!
