Pseudo Supermum is feeling glum. Awaiting viva date, and not shortlisted for the post I applied for.

Nearly, but not yet a doctor, and condemned to be 'just a librarian' a bit longer! It's a bit like going up a flight of stairs, a step at a time, getting to the half-landing, then realising that the stairs round the corner are steeper - or turn into a ladder with rungs missing.

It may be some years since someone outside our department told one of my colleagues that they were just a librarian - but it just sums up how our profession is regarded. Notwithstanding my professional qualifications.
