back to school

Even if we didn't start teaching today, it was the date for the annual Art History Department back-to-school breakfast, in the brand new Faculty Club - 2012 masquerading as 1899 masquerading as - oh, say1620s Bologna.  Inside it's very impressive as a dining room; less impressive to find that the room - "room" - that we were in was no room at all, since it was portioned off only by heavy grey velvet curtains. 

More startling still is the new edict against bike riding in the middle of campus (a campus so heavily excavated that I gather that we're now known as the University of Summer Construction).  I'll believe that when I walk across campus without risking life and limb.
