I guess I have to let them work this out in their own feline way. am giving Jackson lots of attention and telling him what a good guy he is. he's had to put up with a lot lately what with kittens in the bedroom and bunnies in the livingroom.
this morning I was dreaming about trying to find the house I grew up in from aerial photos of Georgia which is not particularly interesting but what is somewhat interesting is that I know this dream was inspired by having stumbled across this site where you can pay 9.95 to download as many maps and images as you can in three days. I'm not sure why I haven't succumbed yet. drugs for practically free.
I have many things to do today and none of them particularly pleasant. I know I will feel better if I get them done right away. one question is whether to be a wuss and rely on email or just go directly to the phone.
see yesterday I checked out a data projector from the technology place at school and then stupidly left it in the room and forgot about it until I got a voicemail message from the technology people saying where is our projector and then an email from about an hour later from my department saying that someone else had returned it and boy was I lucky.
ack. unfortunately my students need a tv tomorrow for their presentations so I have to determine if my borrowing privileges have been revoked and if so I will have to ask my TA to check out the equipment which will be doubly embarrassing.
I once left my own bookbag with laptop in the classroom. fortunately I noticed it was missing as soon as I got upstairs and thought about checking my email so I rushed back downstairs. no one had taken it in the ten intervening minutes. phew.
it is a burden being this flakey I tell you.
anyway I could do all this by email but it would be slow and I suspect calling them and talking to them would look a little more responsible. I hate being an adult.
