Sometimes my job makes me do weird things like when I had to check out malaria on the web and then call Group Health to find out how it is transmitted and whether or not our employee has it, only to discover that if he had any infectious disease, they couldn't tell us. Malaria is transmitted via mosquito so it was a moot point... but still it did make for an entertaining afternoon.
Now I have to put off a meeting with a new faculty because her contract might be revoked. I'm not a good liar. I hate knowing stuff like this before I'm supposed to.
