Back at work today. But last night Alex began coughing and complaining about his throat being full of snot. He woke up this morning with a sore throat, so it looks like I’ve given him strep. Sara finally got over her stomach issues but stayed home to eat and recover. Kim was complaining about not feeling well this morning. I wonder how long we can pass sicknesses around the house.
My intern has abandoned me to get a jump start on spring break. Lucky brat. I’m not sure I can function without her any more. I may actually have to do my job now.
If memory serves, I posted about Karen Hughes coming to campus and how the mass communications department here, namely an old reporter friend who is now a faculty member and campus newspaper adviser, wrote the media plan for the event. And that the plan sucked. I fought it for a while, but my VP told me to just go with it. Okay. I found a really major flaw in the plan the other day. Now I have to decide if I should mention it or not. The temptation is to do nothing but sit back and laugh when the only real point of interest for the media falls through. We’ll see.
I sent my application materials to a local community college for a full-time teaching position in the English department. Then I learned that he who hacked my UCO e-mail and got me suspended is still working there. I thought he’d moved on or died or something. I’m not sure I could work at the same place as him unless there’s a lot of distance between us.
