Best Effort

The frantic pace of summer seems to be coalescing here at the bottom of the world. I’m doing my best to juggle the science work and firefighting responsibilities, along with station responsibilities like House Mouse. Today I get to clean my dorm wing’s bathrooms, as well as one of the lounges. Yesterday, at the end of 12 hours of work, I had to walk out to MAPO in the Dark Sector to move by hand 2,622 pounds of batteries for one of my projects that has a lot of its infrastructure out there. I also ended up staying awake until 2:00 A.M. to issue a new firefighter his full panoply, since he’s currently working on swing shift. So, I got a bit less than 3 hours of sleep this morning. What are you gonna do?

Hey, at least you got to move the batteries indoors, unlike the poor GA's who get to move the snow from here to there and back again all summer.
There are house mouse shifts even in the summer these days?

Well, we moved them from the outdoors to the indoors. I work outside every day of the year, including winter... Yup, residential (bathrooms) and workplace (lounges) House Mice are in effect.
