Back to work woes...

Well back to work today after a long weekend.  I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!  Feel free to share about any family brawls.  The closest we got was when two sides of a very religious relatives got in a heated discussion about whether or not drinking was ok.  Whoo.

Luckily, when I got back to work, the networks at the college (or at least our connections) were broken.  Somehow they were set to read-only so no one could create or modify their files.  This is a pretty big problem.  We have a good IT department here, so they sent someone down.  He attempted to fix it, but mostly just screwed it up so that our connections were broken and we could not even open them.

Long story short, I went to work today, did very little actual work, apologized to researchers and volunteers, and then went home.

80's Hair, Part 2

Again, I move that the bigger hair, the better.  These are from a college people!  A college!

Big Hair!

I was going through some pictures at work and came across some pretty awesome examples of 80's hair:

I think those hair styles should make a come back.  Who's with me?

November 16 - Minor Work Annoyances

And here we are again, I think I'm going to talk about some of my latest work annoyances.

I work at a college and we, like every other college and university, have a public relations department.  These are the people that issue press releases, put together the pamphlets and brochures and whatever ever else that gets released to the public.  Unfortunately, my department holds most of the photographs older than the last couple of years.  When public relations needs to issue a new... say... basketball brochure, they come to us to find older pictures of record holders and such.

Unfortunately for them, we have folder after folder labeled, "Basketball" with no dates and no identifications on any of the actual photographs.  Thus, when PR decides they need, NEED, a picture of Joe so and so, I get to spend the day looking through all of these folders, hoping to run across the right guy.  No idea what he looks like, no idea what his number is, but they expect results.  The next day.  For the list of seven basketball players from the late 80's and 90's.

Ah well, I just finished one of those.  They told us about the request late Friday last week, a sent a "how's this coming along" email on Monday and every day after.  Thanks, answering your stupid emails really is going to get this done quicker.

Anyway, feel free to share your work annoyances.  Doesn't matter if it's a big deal, I know mine isn't!

November 10 - Wow.

So those of you who have been following my blog know that I work in a college and I tend to do a lot of research.  Every once in a while, I run across something that makes me go WHY!?

Ahem.  Anyway, I thought I'd share this with you:

There you go.  Apparently, this woman who will haunt my dreams is some semi-famous person from about here's mother.  Also, AHH!

November 6 - Still no snow.

Another potential snow storm passed us up.  I really like taking pictures of those, but nature isn't cooperating.  Here is one from the last storm:

I liked this one because it kind of looks like a paiting.  Yes, it is through a window.  It was too cold outside, what do you want from me!?

November 2 - No snow?

Ok, maybe a little.  That snowstorm turned out to be a lot less impressive than I was led to believe.  During the day yesterday, the weather channel reevaluated the situation and revised the 8-10 inches of accumulation to 1-3 inches.  Which also leaned more toward the 1 than the 3.  In any event, I was able to take some pictures of the snow last night, so here you go!

Hope you enjoy them.  Maybe I'll get another snowstorm here soon.
