i have to get fully dressed, albeit not in my usual work clothes. jeans, t-shirt, flannel, shoes--everything--when working from home or i don't feel right. having a brokebrain is cool actually

Yeah, I'm showered and fully dressed by 6 am. If I don't my whole day is messed up and I feel like garbage.

my daughter just turned three and i've done about 2 days worth of work since wfh started a month ago

I have a 4 year-old and the only way I get any work done is by waking up at 5 am, then I get about 2 hours before he's up.

After that, work is lucky if I answer calls

So yes, no more safe or dangerous

Itís all rose colored glasses and apocrypha

Like Iím sure people would look through rose colored guess about my lovely village and us all roaming wild, but any fondness for that is:

- conveniently forgetting the enabling of child neglect by taking advantage of our remoteness
- very poor monitoring and enforcement of property crime
- forgetting all the statutory rape and 40 year old townies loving 13 year olds and giving them
STDs
- suicides
- rampant teen death from alcohol abuse

and events like the town drunk getting hammered, shooting a gun in the air outside the school (which is k-12 in one building) and everyone going "oh that's just billy-ray"

for the record, i think the total list of valid causes is

- academic dishonesty like plagiarism or falsifying data
- breaking the law in an obvious way
- violation of ethical guidelines (sex with students) (maybe, if it was "consensual" you'll probably just get a mandatory sabbatical)
- just outright stop coming to class (though they would probably "put you on unpaid leave" forever)
- student enrollment decreased to the point where they can't meet your contract (all the more junior faculty would have to be fired first)
- department/college/university is disestablished (see above note, and they'd probably punt you to some other job if possible)

how about, ďstate budget is a disaster and the board of regent declares a state of emergencyĒ
