  1. woo hoo the neighborhood looks like a war zone. What were they doing last night! Who’s going to clean up this mess.

  2. 🙂 Actually, for most of my graduate school career, I walked to work. Now, I still do! That is one of the perks of being a prof at a small university; you can afford a house that is close to work.

        1. True. I bought mine for just under £6000 in 1972 – all paid for many years ago.

          I just ‘assumed’ that those in academia were there for the privilege of trying to educate those less fortunate, and didn’t worry about such mundane things ;o)

  3. The parking at my University is excellent today. Too bad these PCR plates won’t run themselves…

    The sacrifices we make for science! 😉

  4. I’m an ecologist working in a study system with a SHORT field season. July 4 to Labor Day is my absolute busiest, slammed, and frenetic time of the year. Not in grad school anymore, but I’m working today too…

  5. I used this same strategy when I lived just outside New York City…during the week, public transportation. On Sundays, drive in. No traffic, no lines at the toll plazas, free parking everywhere. Yippee!

    A productive morning in the office, a nice brunch somewhere, and then off to play in the city.
