Photos! On Thursday!

And they’re even this week’s!

The list:
Seasonal chore

They all came from work, taken in between interminable and frustrating sessions of banging my head on the keyboard. Resolved now, I think, but several days of agony were involved.


Bug: Tamie’s screenbug, possibly the best thing I’ve gotten her for cat-sitting. Except for the hand-knit socks, of course.


Feet: do poppets have them? I don’t know; do you?


Multicolored: I seem to be killing off my office plants, but Tamie’s African violets are ridiculously happy.


Time: In late summer and early fall, I get stripes slowly moving across my wall. Some year perhaps I’ll trace the partial analemma, but even without that degree of organization they are a visible reminder of my place in the year and in the day.


Seasonal chore: I have six weeks to finish everything that needs to be done by the end of the year (September 30 in my world). That’s only two-and-a-half things, but they’re large. Eep.


Multicolored and seasonal chore: Some of the organizational tools necessary for getting everything done by the end of the year.

    Is that a cow being harassed by a Viking under your monitor?

    Why yes, yes it is. There’s a penguin down there somewhere too.

    The cow moos and her nose lights up. You can accurately judge the stress level in our office suite because the mooing picks up, or the quacking from the duck in Tamie’s office.

    The third office in the suite is used by short-term postdocs mostly; we need a special kind of person in there. :)
