That was 237 days ago.
I've cleared the stuff in my mailbox, talked over labs and the Physics Help Room with our lab supervisor, said hello to a couple of people and gotten my parking permit. The latter was pretty amusing -- it was packed with people, but they were mostly uniformed Public Safety officers and the parking clerks having a potluck lunch. I tell you, never have I been so happy to be in the Parking Services office as I was today, given my troubles. Hell, the sun came out. (grin)
Just need to check a few more things, then hit the road again and come home.
Success. Achievement unlocked.
