You guys, there's a huge hole in my kitchen floor and it's 56 degrees in here (compared to the seventeen degrees outside, though, that's heavenly) and also tomorrow I have to work outside ALL DAY! My little nose will fall off!



Actually, it's supposed to go up to thirty-nine tomorrow, so that's not TOO bad. It could be worse.

I think I'm going to dig out my quilted, blaze-orange coveralls.

But what about the wind chill? Won't someone please think about the wind chill?!

I'm an engineer, man. I'm interested in the way things ARE, not the way they "feel". That windchill crap is a bunch of hippie liberal arts bullshit!

Totally not required at Rutgers! Woo hoo!

[Though really, engineers are supposed to practically apply science to real-life situations. But I always feel like a poseur referring to myself as a scientist. I . . . do it anyway, though, sometimes.]

If you enjoy learning about science, and you use it in your everyday job, you're a scientist as far as I'm concerned. Hell, I refer to myself as an engineer all the time, and mostly all I do is write programs.

Also, if Michelle's friend the "environmental scientist" can introduce herself as a scientist, you totally qualify.

There is no possible way for a better response to exist in the universe. Good job.

The note said they were working on that pipe. They left the damn thing open like that, though, which pissed me off. It let in all the cold air AND I have a cat, and since it was an unscheduled maintenance visit, that cat was their responsibility and they should have made sure he couldn't go in. Eventually curiousity would have gotten the better of him and he would have tried.

But you know, mostly it was goddamned freezing in here.
