the only earth?

flashing lights

so i have this little block of time between classes that is usually really nice. i can usually catch-up on the reading for my next class using the course reserves in the library.

but not today. the set of reserves are not here -- someone else must have the same idea. the other set is in the student lab. the only problem is that the entire wing appears to be locked down due to some sort of laboratory containment / fire procedure.
i guess i should be sensitive to other people being on fire or whatever, but i'm mostly annoyed. really, i don't think anyone (or anyone's research) is burning. there are flashing lights, but no screaming people. otherwise i would care.

updates on past mysteries

today a few raindrops hit the windows of my office. so much for my magic forcefield theory. maybe it's just on the blink.

other than that colossal disappointment, the rest of my days of classes and fine-tuning sentences was okay. the shut-down of the h-wing was related to a chemical spill.

tonight i had peanut butter, jelly, and pretzels for dinner.
