Maybe less than a minute after I hung up with Prof.B., Bianca called -- just to say hello. Yeah, I'd been wondering if they were gonna do their infamous checking to make sure we're all here the day before a long weekend. (I hadn't actually put in for a personaltime hour when I did my time entry yesterday -- yes, they have us put in our Monday-Friday hours on Thursday -- 'cause I was as yet undecided. I just have this Thing about taking time off like at all.)
So I think now I'm free to go. 'Cause leaving a half an hour early will make such a difference, right? :)
Edit: So, before I left the house this morning I checked weather.com for Norwood and Boston -- day and hour-by-hour -- and it was "showers and scattered thunderstorms" starting at 7, so I didn't bring an umbrella (and yes I did mock my mom for bringing an umbrella). I look out the window just now and it's raining -- difficult to tell how heavily. Sigh. Though I don't mind the rain, and it's 78F so it's that good warm rain.
Okay, I was here ~quarter of 9 (as per usual, given how my trains run) so I feel justified in leaving as it's ~quarter to 5 now.
