where have all the slips gone?

During the last week before school let out for break, I attempted to jazz things up a bit with my ensemble.  And by "jazz up," I mean I actually went back to professional-wear after two weeks of "dress down" days in my blue jeans.  (Every year a team of people at work sells two-week dress down passes to benefit students and families in need.  Donation for two weeks of dressing down during my burn-out time in the semester?  Pshhhhh yea, pass it down.)...more
