I’m waiting for a vendor to call me back, so I have a few minutes in which to regale you with the scintillating minutia of my day.
I finished Throne of Jade at lunch. I did not love it quite as much as His Majesty’s Dragon, but it’s taking the series in a direction I cannot wait to read.
A student worker at the receptionist’s desk has been on the phone for twenty minutes discussing (loudly) the advantages of various dorms on campus. She’s there because the main receptionist took her husband to the emergency room last night, where he was diagnosed with mumps. This has us all surreptitiously checking our own glands for swelling.
I’ve been slowly cleaning up the giant mess of bookmarks I imported into ma.gnolia. This morning I finished up the font and color sections.
ETA: This evening I have discovered (for reasons I do not care to go into) that Urgent Care, the after-hours division of my health provider’s clinic, has undergone cutbacks, and is now known as Today Care. Hours? 8-5. Really, is there any point to its continued existence if its hours are the same as the regular clinic? I think not.

So what you’re telling me is that until you’re no longer contagious, I can’t see you? Ok, that sucks. (Pregnant women are not allowed within three degrees of a mumps victim.)
Argh. Well, I have no idea if I’m contagious or not, but we’ll see if anyone else at work gets sick.
