Week Three: Tornadoes and Results

Wow!  A lot happened this week.  I’m excited to share it all with you.  Club activities haven’t started yet, but the co-op people suggesting three or four to me.  I think I’ll join at least two, if not three.  Four may be pushing it, schedule wise!  However, all, I was informed, would look excellent later on.  Besides, the Space Hardware club just sounds fun, and is need of hands-on people.  I am a hands-on person.  My bike can attest.

Speaking of my pretty little compliment receiving bucket of bolts: Why will my seat not remain nicely tightened up?  And why is rust so fast acting!  The storms this weekend didn’t help, I’m sure, but really.  Rust spots!  This weekend is going to involve a wrench, a screwdriver, WD-40, and CLR.  Any other suggestions?  I really just need to figure out how to keep the seat tight, and not moving up and down constantly.

Ah well.  It’s good bucket of bolts.  I like it!  It just needs a bath and some TLC.  Between the storms and the construction it’s had  a hard week.  I can forgive it.

Those storms by the way including a tornado that touched down seven miles north of here.  The city was on tornado warning off and on for about three hours.  A friend and I decided the wise move would be to hang out on the first floor, unlike some of our very odd floor mates, all from the area, watching out the fifth floor windows.

Lovelies, a bit of advice.  Just because a storm hasn’t lifted you off to Oz yet, doesn’t mean the next won’t!  Please follow safety procedures in foul weather.  You can prepare for just about everything life will throw at you, but arguing with the weather is like shaking your finger at a boulder.  It’s not going to change a thing,

Anyway, the sun finally showed it’s loveliness about forty-five minutes before sunset.  Our Sunday here was full of dusk and rain.  At one point it looked more like midnight than the afternoon.  Nasty weather. 

Oh! I bet you’re wondering how I did on the plays?  Well, I didn’t get a part, but I did make callbacks.  Those of us that did were informed we nine were the nine best actors that had come to auditions, period.  It was quite uplifting as I was one of three for the main female role.

Quite uplifting indeed!  However, I still didn’t get a part, sadly.  There’s a few other things I might try out for, but it looks like I’m more than likely going to just be working on the sets.  Ah set work.  You and I are friends.  Bosom buddies, it sometimes seems.

I have been thinking deep thoughts lately.  You may see some of those soon, but I fear none cropped up in time for the posting.  This is because I have been reading.  I’m sure I’m supposed to have been studying, but I got rather ahead, and thought I would pace myself.  So no deep thoughts this week, though I believe I’ll start alternating them and my ‘what I’ve been doing’ posts, starting next week.

I’m in college.  Isn’t the supposed to be where all my deep thoughts start forming?  Maybe. Maybe.

I would give you political thoughts, but I’ve decided to be very politely quiet on those.  I don’t want to lose my temper thinking about it.  Just know we need more than two parties, and to throw some serious competition in there.  I’ll be quiet now.

One Final Byte: Actually, am I ever quiet? I doubt it.
