I'm Dreaming Of A White . . . Thanksgiving . . .

It's snowing here in lovely Grad School Town. First snow of the school year. It makes me happy, because it's not the cold, grotty, awful, sleety rain we had last night. Snow is nice, sleety rain bites. The snow is even sticking a little, and it doesn't look like it'll be stopping any time soon. I hauled out my winter coat, which is nice because it's much less raggedy than my jacket.

However, despite the freezing temperatures and soft blankets of snow on the ground, the University still has some reminders of gentler, more tropical climates. Specifically, cockroaches. I stomped one as big as my thumb and twice as ugly at the Key Desk yesterday. Apparently, it's the third one they've had this week. Someone must have brought them back from somewhere, because I don't think you're supposed to have roaches that big north of the Mason-Dixon Line.

And, on a final note: Damn you, Web Enrollment! Despite your best efforts, I will enroll in the Folklore of Festivals and Celebrations class! Scoff electronically if you will, but the professor has indeed granted consent, and the department web guru has authorized me to take that class. You'll get what's coming to you, Web Enrollment!
