Visiting professorships

Life has an interesting symmetry to it. No I'm not talking about bilateral symmetry or any Endless Forms Most Beautiful. I've just completed my orientation for a 1 year position at my undergraduate alma mater, where I'll be replacing the person who got me into lab work. In fact this is being typed on his computer. Very, very strange. I believe I'll have to track this experience.

First off- tracking down my review copy that was supposed to arrive 2 months ago. Second, get that damn course management system up and running. Third, clean the lab. Ew.
