I'm a lab tech at a university - basically I'm the goon who does all the prep for lab classes behind the scenes.  I enjoyed it when I started as it was a welcome change from the hellscape that is a research career, but we went through a restructure recently to increase "operational excellence", which means they fired pretty much everyone who had been there more than ten years and hired less people at lower pay so now I'm one of two original members of my team and I have to train a bunch of new people how to do more work with less people, which is going to suck.

On the bright side it's got me more involved with my union, and from what the Murdoch media keeps telling us faceless union thugs secretly run everything so that'll be a nice perk.

Earlier is fine too, I'll probably get the bbq fired up before people arrive so it's ready to go once people are there

The couch is yours, man!

Like, as in, you can keep it, because after you've slept on it it's either that or burn it

Looks really good, man.  I do lamb that way quite frequently - last time I tried it I made the marinade from equal volumes of lemon juice, olive oil and red wine and it really tasted amazing.  Try adding a bunch of chopped fresh rosemary to the marinade as well, and a pinch of ground cumin and chilli flakes.
