led astray

Ok.  Over my initial shock and dismay, I have made myself a cup of cafe mocha from the new machine downstairs. 

This weekend was nice.  The rides went longer than expected, but no one got grumpy.  I got to see some people I don't often get to see and some people I hardly ever get to see.  There were many tacos eaten by all.  And I helpped!  I made guacamole happen and it was good, even though I got it all over me.  There was a toddler and it even touched me and I didn't run away, or even flinch!  It was actually...cute.  I didn't mind it being there and I wasn't uncomfortable at all.  I actually had the occasional impulse to play with it.  Him.  I didn't, mainly because I wasn't sure how to proceed with such a thing.  But the thought crossed my mind, and that was new.  They were right.  Parents paying enough attention to thier children makes a big difference!  Huzzah for good parents! stf_lc

I do not want birds.  My aunt had a bird who used to attack me every time I showed up if it was out of its cage.  I don't know why.  The thing just hated me.  There was a bird at revanent's place this weekend I wanted to pluck the feathers off of because it attacked first the_hoyce, then E.  It was cranky.  I cursed at it, flicked it's tailfeathers to make it fly off of E's shoulder, where it had been trying to bite his head, then threw a towel over its head so it could be put back in its cage.  It had previously gotten my sympathy when its rendition of a car alarm brought a cage rattling from a sleepy revanent.  But no longer.

And a note about stupidity and administration.  High-ups should have to take occasional trips to the places they oversee and experience thier policies put into practice to have any kind of relevant knowledge to base decisions on.  I hear that the parking lots located under 2 of the buildings on campus, which account for a LARGE portion of parking spaces on campus, have been permanantly closed off.  I don't know why.  It should be noted that during a normal school day, the lots get so crowded that alternate parking about a half mile away (but that students still have to pay $6 for) has to be opened.  Where on earth are they planning to put all those cars now?!?


You should have said something. KC's pretty easy to play with, and usually pretty comfy with new folks, even if they're less than comfy.

I'm glad we didn't make you run away screaming. And that E got to play with a kid who wasn't trying to stab him with a fork. And that we got to hang with you all in general. It was fantastic...

Thanks for the props.
You deserve them. I'm an advocate of the Parent Liscence. I would issue you two one. ;-)
Yeah, well-raised children are just awesome :)

Birds are - wacky, at minimum. They have this constant drive to protect everything. They can get the mentality of over-muscled men on too many steroids.

I agree with you on administration. Salem State College had the same issue, 75% was a commuter student, but they had parking for 10% of the student population - which was always full of residential students' cars. Absolutely retarded.
Yeah, Umass Boston is 100% commuter. Now I'm hearing that they're going to make faculty and staff park 2 miles away and shuttle in. !!!
::facepalm:: Wow, the idiocy of people is just astounding!
