Yup, new carpet. Still being installed. Or laid. Or whatever you do with it. The same carpet that was supposed to be done on Saturday, which is still being installed/laid/whatever today. Tuesday.

I craved bustle, but that's not exactly what I got. What did I get? Let's see:

1. dust

2. nauseating carpety smell that is probably killing all my remaining brain cells

3. dust and carpet glue residue on my favorite black sandals

4. a pissed-off student (she walked in the glue, too)

5. a backache

6. actually, the backache is from carrying a desk down three flights of stairs last night

7. sneezing and sniffling

8. the joy of trying to remember where every piece of library furniture goes, since the carpet installers/layers/whatever did not take any pictures or make any mental note of the whereabouts of ANYTHING before they shoved it around willy-nilly

9. a sneaking suspicion that I should have been the one to take pictures or make a mental note of the whereabouts of my furniture

10. a sudden compulsion to keep checking Medline Plus for information on the dangers of solvent exposure.

Happy Tuesday!
