1. The air conditioning at my office is broken. Ordinarily, this wouldn't be a huge problem for me, as my boss likes the temp so low that my hands get numb, but I managed to get a beautiful sunburn while I was at the beach yesterday, and I'm feeling really hot already.
2. One of my co-workers had received several nominations from some high-profile people to sit on a GIS committee. Although the committee is supposed to be non-partisan, he was rejected because he's a registered Democrat.
