Minutes from the first meeting of the organisational committee for the Joint Bioinformatics Center’s Grad Student Presentation Day:
P-san: Ok, now that we have set the presentation schedule for the day, we need to name the session chairs. And a time-keeper for each session.
Dave: That’s easy: there are three sessions, there’s three of us… We each chair one session.
K-san: Actually… The goal is to avoid doing it ourself. Chairing sessions is a real pain in the ass.
Dave: Good point.
K-san: There are three participating labs. For time-keepers, we’ll just pick the kōhai in each of the three labs…
P-san: nods in assentiment
Dave: Great idea. Stupid kōhais, gotta be good for something.
K-san: For session chair, we’ll just ask one senior member from each lab to volunteer.
P-san, Dave: Sounds good…
Dave: Wait a minute… There is only one research student in my lab: me!
K-san: Oh… that’s right.
Dave: Chotto FML.
