Music:the "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" theme -- veddy British!!
While I was writing that last post, the prof in charge of the tea came running in. The bakery had forgotten to deliver the scones and clotted cream (sounds disgusting, but it's good). She needed a volunteer to pick them up, but no one else had a car.
Super-TA to the rescue!!
So now I am full of scones and tea and basking in the regard of the department. Life is good.
