Sometimes, there is work stress. Sometimes, there is immense work stress. My joke to the Stressy College Chick is that the best way of dealing with bad monitor reports is to apply the Nerf Bat to the head of the offender.

The thing is nicely labeled, so everyone will know it is in fact mine. This will ensure that it gets returned to me, but will also have the effect of its use getting blamed on me.

It has instructions for use. My desk is much neater than usual -- generally, there are papers scattered all over.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
