The glamorous Antartctic life
Palmer is small enough that there are no dedicated janitors. Every Saturday, the station shuts down early and everyone (Everyone) draws a chore out of the hat. This is called "House Mouse". This was my chore for today.
(Truth be told, this is actually one of the better jobs to get. If you don't dawdle, you can knock it out in about twenty minutes, while kitchen duty can take upwards of an hour).
