Veggies for the week
Brussel sprouts! Fractal broccoli! Spaghetti squash! Carrots in two colors!
And here is the Alaska Range as seen from campus the other day. What a clear day it was!
Edited to add:
This morning around 10 a.m. I suddenly bolted out of my desk and realized that in riding down and gloating over my summer of triumph, I'd completely forgotten about a bunch of bureaucratic stuff that has to happen at the beginning of every semester. Such as:
*signing up for thesis credits for fall.
*going upstairs to the business office and picking up my next year's contract (yeah... getting paid would be good!).
*bringing a copy of said contract to the grad school so they transfer my fellowship money appropriately.
*getting a new parking permit for the new academic year.
A funny thing is, even after doing it three times, I don't recall how to do that last one. I think you need to fill out paperwork at the Department of Parking, but they won't accept your paperwork until you pay for the parking fee. But accounts services won't input a parking fee for for you (so you can pay it) until you do the paperwork with the Department of Parking. And I forgot the way out of that hot mess.
I must really be distracted, because after the first year, the following two years I knew exactly how to do this, but now I plum forgot!
