No one is getting back to me. I called the vet, and they never called back. (I'm going to try again tomorrow.) My boss' boss never got back to me about my fall classes. The car service place never got back to me to confirm the appointment tomorrow, so I called them and made an appointment for tomorrow. Most worrisome, I haven't heard from the printer whether they can get the right size paper for my poster. (I'll e-mail them again tomorrow if I don't hear anything. Actually, I found their phone number, so maybe I'll call them.) Bah.

My boss took a half-day off today, and I didn't know that either.

I am having an e-mail conversation with my dad about hiking. I told him that I want to hike in Shenandoah State Park sometime "and do a day hike on the Appalachian Trail to get a feel for it because I'll probably never hike the entire thing". This was his response:

The Appalachian National Scenic Trail, generally known as the Appalachian Trail or simply the A.T., is a marked hiking trail in the Eastern United States extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine. Wikipedia

Length: About 2,200 miles (3,500 km)
Highest point: Clingmans Dome, 6,643 ft (2,025 m)
So yes, I doubt you would want to do the entire trail even on an installment plan.

The proper name and statistics kind of cracked me up. He's so Dr. Spock. Although maybe he didn't know much about the trail, and I know a fair amount about it. I used to be a member of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and probably will join again when I have more money. I think that it's cool that it exists, even if I'm not likely to hike it.
