Baking sweltering heat, almost constant rain, it feels like I’m somewhere tropical. But no, just in the office. It is officially ‘cold season’ and the antiquated un-thermostated heating has been turned on. Doors and windows open across campus, fans are turned on, jumpers pulled off to sit in t-shirts. Energy efficient? No. Environmentally friendly? No. Any other choice? No, not really.
Got to the office today to find a banner across my door proclaiming 30 years of age. There are more banners in my office and the main office. Balloons cling with sticky-tape to my monitor and window.
