Fish and trees

The professor I'm working for sent me to find out the current enrolment for her class - and found it was capped at 22, not 20 people. Consequently, I have a few more hours of work for her to do, finding bibliography on two hastily-decided-upon creatures (the cedar tree and a kind of flying-fish! I also need to add one or two works to the section on the wolf, but that can be borrowed from the general mammology books I found for the struggling horse section). It's been interesting browsing this material. And the most important lesson I learned? All the really important structural information about a subject can often be found in a good encyclopedia.

Some people go from bar to bar as they close down. Today, with libraries in their last week of summer hours, I'm going from library to library as they close down.

Tomorrow, however, will be spent doing no work whatsoever - well - maybe a little on flying fish and cedar trees. But no REAL work
