Random bullets of Friday (by the numbers)
Number of syllabi completed and dropped off for copying: 1.
Number of syllabi left to do: 1.
Number of people who attended the long department meeting on Friday: almost everyone.
Number who sat and typed on a laptop most of the way through it, working on e-mail except when he/she was talking: 1. (My charitable self says that maybe s/he was sending notes to him/herself--hence the e-mail screen.)
Number of "team-building exercises" inflicted on us: mercifully, 0.
Amount of Haagen-Dazs Belgian Chocolate ice cream I bought specially on Thursday night and promised myself as a reward if I got through the whole thing: 1/4 cup, the perfect amount.
