Christmas in May

The end of the school year is joined by the end of the fiscal year, and everyone has to spend their use-it-or-lose-it money. Someone upgraded his computer; my office computer now has a hand-me-down 21" monitor (CRT, not flat -- but an improvement over the 17" CRT I had). I got a new-to-me ethernet card, too. (Faster than the previous connection? Can't tell.) And from the office supply budget I have been able to obtain all sorts of fantastic filing and sorting supplies, ensuring that my office will be an organized and efficient place where much work will get done. Yes, it's the most wonderful time of the year.
