You know weather is serious when campus bans tailgating at the football game tomorrow!!
2. Campus is also under what is euphemistically entitled a "Midnight Clear." All that really means is all the surface parking lots have to be free of vehicles over night so they can plow. I still LOL when we get the mass emails A MIDNIGHT CLEAR HAS BEEN DECLARED. I always think there should be the sound of air-raid sirens in the air.
3. In spite of all this crazyness, campus Homecoming Parade still seems to be taking place. I will try and leave work early before all that madness begins. I saw one float lumbering across campus as I was leaving the mothership this morning. During normal weather conditions, there is usually a surfeit of tiny little pieces of tissue paper flying all across campus.
4. Had a meeting at the Library this morning. I always have an odd reaction to this meeting, as I end up seeming WAY more important than I am. This was only emphasized this morning as it was our first meeting of this academic year, and so we had to go around and introduce ourselves, mostly to the people who were teleconferencing in over the phone from the statewide branch campus libraries. Everyone's introducing themselves as HEAD LIBRARIANS or departmental SUPERVISORS. I am about as far from one of those things as it is possible to be! I am very much a worker bee with no supervisory, or decision making abilities. But I know how to speak library-ese, and my boss wants as little to do with this end of things as possible... so there I sit. Hooray for me.
5. There may be tears later. I just bought myself a new scale with a digital readout. If it tells me I weigh more than the crappy 30+ year old scale I am replacing I will not be happy. After last week's five pound weight loss, this week's single pound is frustrating me. I don't really want to compound this frustration by going backwards... but we'll see when I get home and compare the two scales.
Wishing everyone a warm sunny weekend with CAKE!!
