Would you work in a really, really, really hot building all day long with lots of fans droning on and on and making you feel ever so sleepy?
The university does this thing called "cycling" with our air-conditioning. What that means is they turn it off and on. They cool the buildings with chilled air and when it is extremely hot, it is difficult to cool all of the buildings at the same time.
The day before yesterday, it seemed we didn't have any air-conditioning in our building and they came around handing out fans. Then yesterday morning when we came into work, it was hotter in the building than outside. I walked in and said "who wants to go for ice-cream for breakfast?" Then we had an email from our assistant Dean. He went out and bought pop and water and Klondike bars in every flavor.
"Ice-cream for breakfast? I think I will." At some point yesterday, it seemed the air was back on and today we have cooler temperatures outdoors which makes it easier for the system to keep up.
What would you do for a Klondike bar?
