One of the things I have to be careful about is eating too much. It's a very good deal for staff and faculty, just $6.50 for lunch when using Cornell's debit account, but my instinct is always to make the most of the all-you-care-to-eat opportunity and try a little of everything. Maybe if I did this more often, rather than less, it would be easier not to try everything on each visit. (I have a funny feeling I've said this here before.)
On one of the visits last week (I think the visit with acappellasinger) it was a zoo, because the 4-H groups had just arrived. Today wasn't quite as crowded, but there were more obviously bunches of kids being shepherded by counselors, and it brought back memories of camp. I vaguely miss being a camp counselor and working with (mostly) cool kids. I sure miss having (comparatively) relaxed summers in the Catskills with a lake and a fleet of kayaks and sailboats at my disposal a ten minute walk away.
