Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Say, it's not just for plumbers!

The elevator over in the annex has been inoperable since last week, but they just got around to getting someone in here yesterday to fix it. Which prompted two fire alarms yesterday afternoon, and one TWO (second one just went off) this morning due to the repair guys mucking about with having to weld stuff and mess with the electrical circuits.

Anyway, as I was walking down the corridor last evening on the way out to the parking deck, I met a co-worker heading the opposite way, and as he passed, he jerked his thumb back over his shoulder--"Look out."

I rounded the corner and was met by a giant chasm--not only were the annex elevator doors open, there was a trusty mechanic kneeling on the floor looking over the sill into the bottom of the shaft, giving all who passed by nice look at his vertical smile.

I guess plumbers aren't the only ones afflicted with plumber's butt.
