Welcome to Coffee Talk! Grab your favorite drink and sit down for a spell.
This week been an interesting one at the office. We had Monday off for Memorial Day. Tuesday was a bit busier, with some of the new freshmen on campus for orientation, but I’ve been bored out of my mind the last few days, as email service has been out campus-wide since the weekend. I’m amazed at how much of my job really is dependent on people being able to easily pass me information and requests via the internet. It’s supposed to be back up sometime late today, and let’s hope so, because it’s going to take ages to get caught back up.
Though the lack of email, has given me time to keep up with the everything going on around the web. Fights about gorillas and people’s ability to parent, Taylor Swift’s breakup, and the latest in video game studies (I knew there was a reason, I was never good enough to beat this game).
On the Home Front
We lost one of the ducks earlier this week. An animal tore up the metal mesh at the base of the coop and stole it. So, the ducks have taken up temporary residence (in a homemade pen made from pallets) inside the barn, until the exterior fencing for their pen is completed.
And, as you may remember, we lost our barn cat, Geordi, a week ago. But it seems I’ll never be long without cats. My dad brought 2 kittens from his neighbors over to live with us on Monday. They are already people friendly, but have very different personalities. The black kitten is more outgoing and rambunctious, while the white kitten is shy and more stealthy.
Is there anything interesting going on in your life?
