Welcome back to everyone at campus again. To start of the community again, I propose a bit of story time.

While I was eating at the refrectory tonight, I happened to notice something out of place. My 'stir fry' had a white piece of paper attached to one of the snow peas. Turns out it was a price tag. I wondered to myself, "When did they started tagging individual snow peas, and why are they so expensive?" And when I realized that something was amiss with the whole situation, I lost my appetite.

Anyone else have any terrifying stories involving the reef/sexton/McGlynn's/cafe? Nothing better to start of the school year than with gross-out food stories.XD

All right. It's 1:10am. Absolutey everything that isn't absolutely necessary (ie bedding, laptop, purse, jacket, and overnight bag...well, and all the textbooks I sell back tomorrow) has somehow been packed into my car against all odds. I am now afraid to open ANY of the doors except on the driver's side. Everything in the dorm has been cleaned, vacumed, scoured, scrubbed, and taken care of. The fridge is defrosted and everything's all sterile and boring again. All of my homework (save the essays I'm emailing my prof by Friday) is done. There is nothing left to do but get all my withdrawal slips signed and turned in and then take my final.

In 15 to 16 hours, I will have left this place forever.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is way beyond surreal.

Whew...I officially have way too many clothes. One gigantic trunk and two suitcases later and I'm completely out of room. And I haven't even hit my desk or shoes yet! Whoops...

Anyway. As I will possibly not even have room for the things I brought up here with me, there is definitely no way I will have room for some of the things I bought up here. So, if anyone's interested I'm giving away a VERY nice big beanbag recliner. It's pink, yeah, but obscenely comfortable and in great condition...give me a call t X6181 if you're interested?

Reflections upon leavingCollapse )

Well...that's all, I guess. Good-bye, everyone. I hope you all get exactly as much happiness as you deserve, I really do. Good luck next year!

"Musuem" by Tina Howe runs at the BAC art gallery until Sunday. Now through Saturday are performances at 7 and 9 pm and sunday is a 2pm matinee. It'd be great if you can make it, tonight's crowd was kind of meak. Oh, and it's an FAE for first years who need credit.

Well, that's it. This year's opera is officially over...and none too soon for us tired performers in it! But it was fun, we all had a blast, and I'm still sad it's over. 3 hours of Asia Choir rehearsal just isn't the same as 3 hours of sitting under a curling iron and a cloud of hairspray before rehearsing for another 3! ^_^.

I was just wondering if anyone on here had a chance to go see "Princess Ida," and for those that did, what did you think? So far we've heard all kinds of good things from everyone, and Carolyn said something about this being our most successful performance in years as far as audience turnout went, but I just wanted to make sure everyone enjoyed it! And I know at least two people in this community went *waves to Steve and Maddie* but I wondered if anyone else had. So what did you guys think?

If you were forced to live on the opposite campus that you do now (gender-wise), and were given the choice to live anywhere on that campus, where would you choose to live and why? And, if you live off-campus, just pretend that you'd live on your gender-appropriate campus.

I would choose to live on the third floor of Greg House. I love the feel of that building and the vaulted ceilings on the 3rd floor.

Speaking of Bulletin Board stuff... I'm a total lameass. How can I submit an ad for my car?

I'm failing at figuring this out.

Does anyone else find it incredibly ironic that these two announcements appeared RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER on the daily bulletin board?

Hey guys. I thought I might try a post here in hopes of finding leads to selling my car. ... I have to sell it by Finals Week. So, if you know anyone who's looking for a decent car (a little on the high mileage/old side--but still runs well)... point 'em here:

It's a 1996 Mazda Protege, white... very little rust, actually--and only one particularly angry mark on the back end of the car that was there when I bought it. (the previous owners were rear-ended in a parking lot--the truck that did it also took out a back light, which they had replaced for me)

There's about 99,500 miles on it right now, but I estimate about 100,000 by the end of the semester.

Recently I had the spark plugs replaced, along with some other wires and junk (I don't know the exact details--my head clouds up and my eyes glaze over when dealing with cars) All in all, it was about $400 worth of work. So just to let people know, I've been keeping up with maintainence since I bought it. :D If you really want to know all the details of the work done, I'll dig up the reciepts.

I took out the stereo and put in a CD/MP3 system--I don't know if (or how) the MP3 thing works... but CDs play lovely in it. I'll be leaving that in there since I have no use for it--as I won't have a car for a while after May.

Stick-shift, by the by.

Anyway, Right now I'm lookin' around $2300 for an asking price. I paid $2500 for it, I've only put about 1,000 miles on it, plus put in that CD player. But I'll be willing to negotiate a little. I'm not terribly picky about this one.

So, if you or anyone you know is looking for a car, have them contact me. Call 5865, ask for Margaret.


...Also... I fully admit to sucking with describing cars, so if you're interested, call, and I'll set up a time to let you, or whoever wants to buy it come look at it. :D
