Last night as I was going to bed, heard OriginalRoomie and NewRoomie talking about the census forms, with OriginalRoomie saying, "By August we'll probably all have moved out of here anyway." I thought this was interesting. I'd assumed NewRoomie would stay for the duration of her time at the Fletcher School, though recently I heard her say something about spending the summer with women's resistance work in the Sudan, so who knows. I don't know of any reason why OriginalRoomie would be moving. I think I'm equal parts intrigued and anxious at the prospect of having a whole new set of roommates next year. (I certainly have no intention of moving again any time soon.)
I had lots of downtime at work and accomplished like nothing. I've really gotta stop doing this. Today I can cop out and blame tiredness and it being Friday, but really. (I am going to bed early tonight, though.)
When second-flyout-guy left for the day, he said 'See you soon' to me, which I interpreted as a sign that he's gonna accept the job offer. Will be interesting having two brand-new faculty; plus I'll be interested to see if they juggle the faculty any in terms of FA assignments or just swap out the incoming faculty for the departing faculty.
