Things to do when the students are gone

I just went to the back room to get some scotch tape and found the grad student coordinator filming a preservation video, with the help of some circ people. Not a big deal, except that they were using some of the Madagascar hissing cockroaches that we have in a display out in the public area. Yes, live ones.

See, former employers, libraries aren't boring. We even hold roach races during the down-time.

Love. This.

Jeezus Keerist!

So I'm sitting here at my new job (more on that later!) and anxiously hopping between browser tabs (I love Mozilla/Firefox), reloading several different election-result sites. I think I'm giving myself an ulcer. Only another half-hour t and I can go fret some more. Sheesh.

By the way, I still think the whole Electoral College set-up stinks, even though I originally come from one of the small-population States which benefits from the current set-up. Sigh. Someday we'll be free of the Colonial mind-set that prevails in our modern politics. Or not.

Back to the web.
