Evidently the lack of work hours this week was a combination of end-o-month trimming to make budget and also a major computer fuck-up, where-in nobody was scheduled for their normal schedule, and also the undergrads didn’t get their semester availability in soon enough, so now I’ve had three calls and half a dozen emails about people wanting to trade shifts.
So it’s not just me, and I can actually pick up some more hours. More hours than 7.

My mom is coming through town today. We’re going to look at cars maybe if it stops raining. Hopefully she won’t bring any more ketchup and almonds.

“I absolutely intended no offense, and if this is at all on his radar screen, I am sure that he will not take offense and he’ll be happy to accept my apology because he is a man of character.”—Rep. Doug Lamborn, a Colorado Republican, apologizing for comparing President Obama and his policies to a “tar baby”—a term that can be used to mean a “sticky situation” but historically has had some racially insensitive uses. (Then-Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney apologized for using the expression back in 2006.)
After 46 days, 11 hours and 20 minutes Jen has finally finished the 2,181 mile trail. She reached the end at 3:26 p.m. today. Hard to express how proud of her we are. Pics and more stories from the trail to come soon.
