Hee-hee. I love it. Finally, I’m benefiting from the nice, shiny new classroom and counseling building they built behind the SpacePod that houses most of the Liberal Arts departments at Baa Ram U. In the process, they did away with a whole parking lot but they also converted a few of the spaces in the adjacent lot to these spaces. So although I’ll never get to teach in shiny new building, at least I get preferred parking closer to my building with these spots reserved for smug hybrid drivers. (And for me, the unsmug hybrid driver who has to teach in unglamorous, un-smart, unrenovated classrooms. Unbelieveable, isn’t it?)
This is for Sisyphus, who won a postdoc (yay!) and has moved to Postdoc City, only to find that the morning commute and parking is even more difficult than it was back in the Golden State. Good luck, Sis! We’re all rooting for you.
