I need a personal assistant.
Took most of the morning off work so I could drive to Northeastern in the pouring snow (was behind a van that had no traction, and I was starting to wonder if I'd ever actually get out of the neighborhood) and get my transcript and the AWOL letter of recommendation. (Turns out he did in fact send it, but UIC lost it. I'm not entirely shocked.) Anyway, would you believe that the bio office there doesn't open until NOON? I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around this concept. There is nobody in charge or answering phones or doing paperwork except between noon and four. Every day. *boggle*
I have rediscovered Trixie Belden books! I read a really excellent fanfic whose URL I can't remember now, and it rekindled my interest in the series. I even went so far as to go downstairs and stare at the heap of boxes, somewhere at the bottom of which is the box of "kiddie" books I packed away long ago. Then I went back upstairs.
