Okay - check out the newest student on campus!!!

There is a lot of crazy going on around campuses lately. Today one of the groundskeepers accidently shot a rock into the window of the office next to mine. He didn't even notice because they wear ear plugs, but the people in my building heard the twack and went to investigate. I didn't hear it and it was just one office over from me. It could easily have been mine! And I just put up my Halloween window decorations... Instead it hit the computer lab for the Financial Aid office and shattered their window. Safety glass is a cool thing (I have an icon of it) so it didn't shatter into shrapnel; instead it crackled and popped like a bowl of rice crispies as little fractures worked their way from the impact point outwards. Anyway, I dashed into the office and closed the blinds for the moment when the glass did start falling. My boss didn't like my running in, I don't think, although she did like that the blinds were closed. Later physical plant came by and nailed wooden boards over the window frame after busting out the glass. I discovered the new intern in C2 is hilarious as he did color commentary for the event. He and I may be starting a "screw the whales, save the dragonflies" organization, and we somehow ended up singing We Are The World and dancing in the breezeway. I'm not sure how that happened. I know when I continued on my lunchtime walk I could hear him talking to the others still watching the deconstruction workers - not sure what they were saying, but I heard him say "it needed more cowbell." :D

Even scarier than a broken window, my friend at the University of Texas Austin which had a crazy shooter today. Thankfully he and everyone but the shooter are okay. I will take a rock through a window any day!

This campus is just right.
There's been a mom and her cub wandering around for about a week now. The campus sent all the employees and students a pdf file about how to act around bears. That campus is pretty much wild kingdom. They also have had alligators, bats, and snakes. :D

Oh my!!!

Though that is an adorable cub. Another 300lbs and it'll be a real bear.
