Huh. So Harvard faculty can't spell "fucking."
My impression has been that the English department doesn't have enough funding for kitchen materials. The Law Department had a full kitchen. And the Sociology Department has potluck Wednesdays. The History Department brings booze to all its lecturers and events. And the Public Policy department has really great treats when they bring politicians on campus.You gotta know where to go.
Then don't leave out the Art Department. Openings for faculty shows rock, with wine, beer, cheese, grapes, and once even caviar. I counted on them as an undergrad.
The math department is too cheap and give-a-fuck to provide even coffee, but the Chinese grad students are happy to help out with tea.
I anticipate needing some extra patience by mid-April, if not sooner. Better let our Coby-equivalent know well in advance, since I suspect I won't be the only one.
Yeah, anybody who's ever been in charge of inventory knows that you don't wait for the last one of something to be used before you order more, unless that something is very expensive and/or seldom used.
