It has been a busy start to what will be a busy week. The name of the game this week (on top of CPC, IOE, and NA580 stuff) has been my big group project in NA 562 - Ship Production. I could go on another tirade about working in groups, but suffice it to say that when a group member announces one week before the project is due that her section of the ship weighs 400 tons you have a rough few days ahead. I'm scheduled to sit with the groupie in question for awhile tomorrow night and I have a nervous mix of fear and loathing in my belly. It is inconceivable to me that somebody can get to their second year of graduate school and not know a) what ship blocks are and b) to ask for help when you need it, and doubly so when there are other necks on the line.
