Anyways, I never actually made it to the engineering library, since I was busy catching up on department news, helping a friend work out the details for a workshop on teaching her students some editing basics in some nicely ingenious ways, and generally socializing. It wasn't a complete waste - I now have photocopies of some very crucial articles I should have already known about but hadn't. I do now. Later, several of us went out for coffee/hot chocolate, and then C. and I were off to one of the most well-attended First Thursday pub nights I have ever been too. There had to have been the better part of 40 people there!
Tomorrow. I will make it to the engineering library tomorrow.
