Today is just a half-day at work, and there are no students. We're having a big meeting in the morning followed by departmental meetings for faculty, which means -- because I am not faculty -- I will be catching up on mundane tasks in the library. So all in all, a quiet day, which is a good thing.
Even better, I will finally be able to shave my freaking moustache! Woo hoo! We're taking our Movember group photo this morning, and immediately after that I'm taking a razor to my upper lip. I dislike my moustache less for aesthetic reasons than because I find it incredibly uncomfortable -- itchy, tickly, sensitive to every breath and every whisper of wind.
Also, I think it makes me look older.
Which means probably by the time you see this photo -- and you all asked for it, remember, so I am delivering even though I hate blogging pictures of myself -- the moustache will be history and I will be back to normal. Whew.
This afternoon Dave and I are taking off for Turkey. Olga will stay a few days at her kennel, which is already making me feel guilty. Blogging tomorrow from Istanbul, just in time for Turkey Day!
