A New Year - A New Beginning...

...etc., etc., etc. How was the time off? Great? Busy? Slow? Weird? Too much food? Too much drink? Too much YouTube? It doesn't matter. It's ancient history now. It's January and you probably don't have an assignment due for at least a week.

So drop into the library, see your old friends, exchange New Year's Eve horror stories. We open at 8 and I figure the lineups at the computers will start forming around 9:30....

Have a great term!
