Doctoring up Dr. Oetker

I have to make a Halloween party dessert on a tight schedule. In my cabinet I have a box of Dr. Oetker organic blondie mix and a can of organic pumpkin. According to the box directions you're supposed to add 1/4 C. melted butter and 2 eggs to the blondie mix. Can I add some of the canned pumpkin? About how much, do you think? How much of the butter or eggs would I leave out to make it still hold together with the fats, but not too gloppy with the added pumpkin?

Powerbocks to replace a bike?

I need a new push bike. My old bike died. Typically I do short distance cycling to and from work - about 5 kms plus train journey to or from work (40km round trip by road, 50km by cycle path without the train). Other times when I need a bike it's generally for getting around the inner city (I live somewhere that's for inner city people in quasi-rural exile). My question is should I get some of these instead? Background here. [more inside]

Union Involvement...advisable?

As a brand new faculty member, should I be careful about too much involvement in the faculty association during difficult negotiations over our contract? I don't feel particularly worried about this, but I recognize that the tenure process ultimately is given the okay by the president and the board. I'm hanging signs on my office door and attending meetings...the typical stuff so far. What do you think?
