Fire Alarms

Once again, I don't think I have anything to blog about. I have been so busy at work this week doing my job and trying to interview people to fill the position that reports to me. So what am I doing on here now at 4:45 in the afternoon? Just taking a break from reviewing resumes, fixing computer problems, saving the world... you know, the usual. ;)

I saw on FB that my niece, who just started her freshman year in college, had a fire alarm in the middle of the night last night. I couldn't help but laugh and tell her, "Welcome to college". When I was at UTK, there was someone on the guys' side of our dorm that was actually setting fires in a trashcan in the hallway at 3am nearly every night for awhile. And it was winter. So we all got to the point where we'd set our shoes out and sleep in sweats so that we'd be ready when the alarm went off. We'd all trek outside wrapped up in our comforters to stay warm. It took a few weeks for them to catch this guy...not sure why, since you could almost set your clock by the fires. But, it was part of my college experience and allows me to laugh at my niece and remind her how Tingley's show sympathy. (See Mark's post here if you don't remember:
