Today the snow is squeaking when we walk, it's so dry. *queek queek queek* This Canadian podcast answers the question of why it makes that sound, after an obnoxious intro. Gotta love those Canadian O sounds!
My buddy Leo is so happy that I am back. Ana and Jose took great care of him, giving him lots of attention. There is a veritable shag rug of fur everywhere, but my Dyson Animal Hair vacuum will make short work of it--once I get a chance to use it! Maybe I should try this?
I taught my first two classes today, after correcting, printing and photocopying the syllabus for each one. I filled two grocery bags with junk mail from home and work. So much paper!
The car's battery was dead, but AAA jumped me and I got home fine last night. But it was dead again this morning, not a surprise really, so tomorrow I'll get it replaced. I took the express bus to campus, and I think I'll be taking the bus a lot more from now on. It stops a block away, takes about the same time as driving, but lets me off about a fifteen minute walk from my office. I can use the exercise--or rather my friend Mr. Belly could use it.
