woo hoo the neighborhood looks like a war zone. What were they doing last night! Who’s going to clean up this mess.
🙂 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.
You can afford a house?
Now, that’s impressive ;o)
Uh, I bought it for 57,000 dollars in 1991. That isn’t so impressive of a feat. 🙂
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)
I’m working today. But since I live in England, this is normal.
And I walk to work, too.
The parking at my University is excellent today. Too bad these PCR plates won’t run themselves…
The sacrifices we make for science! 😉
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…
I’m self-employed; what’s a day off?
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.
