Had a bomb threat at work yesterday which closed down campus for over half the day. We got a message to leave campus immediately and on foot, and since I live just off campus I ended up with a housefull of coworkers for a few hours as we waited for updates and the university got itself ordered enough to re-deploy buses off-campus and pick up people to distribute back home. So. That was "fun."

Work has also been nuts. Another staff member will be leaving in December and so we'll be cut even further to the bone. Workload is virtually unmanageable at this point and our boss isn't helping, which means he doesn't get it or doesn't care. It makes an exhausting situation even more exhausting, and also depressing.

In cheerier news, I got the letter that I passed my first year review at school and will be setting up an appointment with the grad committee within the next month. Sweet! The course schedule with descriptions came out too, so next semester I will likely be taking Translating Beowulf, the Novel of Manners, and Radical Religious Writing in the 17th C. Cos that is how I roll, yo. My two final papers for this semester are coming along in bits and pieces and I'm pretty excited about what I can do with them; one is on reading comics queerly and the other is on women in science fiction and canon formation. Good times, right?
