A few random thoughts while I put off writing some crappy article on outsourcing for just 10 more minutes.
  1. On the Salve Web site, Dr. Eula Fresch has two interesting interests listed in her profile: global issues (how specific) and the historical preservation of cabooses. Now, here is where Eula and I differ, because if I were going to preserve a caboose, I would hope it's a nice round one (no offense, Jenn).
  2. I have come to associate writing at the computer at night with eating candy. This is a problem because I write 40 hours a week. I cannot eat candy 40 hours a week ANYMORE
  3. I think I've found Osama Bin Laden. According to the police scanner that's been buzzing for the last hour, he's the contact at Bahras' Market and he's been calling 911, then saying everything is fine when they call back.
  4. Have you guys ever considered that this shit we write on here is potentially being read by people we don't know? Do you think strangers understand our sense of humor? (If any strangers are reading this and think we're funny, speak now or forever hold your peas.)

Kate...Eula's passion for the historic preservation of cabooses is not new knews to we education majors. Now you have an even better idea of why it was difficult to sit in one of her classes and not feel the need to laugh hysterically at inopportune moments. Also, no word of a lie, she came to class one day dressed as a train conductor. She made us listen to her husband on tape reading some old conductor's journal or something, then she passed out the lyrics to "I've been working on the railroad." This plus the knowledge that she works so hard to preserve cabooses really was the last straw and it was absolutly impossible to ever look at good ol' Eula with a straight face again.

2. I associate sitting at the computer with eating as well(mostly junk food). It was an awful habit I picked up during our senior year of late night article writing, Mosaic Online editing and layout, and thesising.

3. I hope you are poking around Bahras' Market to find Osama so that you can write a grand feature and win your first Pulitzer.
