My Crazy Floor

As the title implies crazy things happen on my floor. I'm talking about weird, crazy, random odd and slightly scary things happen on my floor, and since I'm in a sharing mood I think I'll give you guys just a small glimpse at what really goes on here. Keep in mind that this is mostly only things that have happened after fall break, with one event that has happened before it.

A few days ago, my dear friends Kathleen, Sam and Emily were playing hockey....inside....on our hall....with brooms, a lacrosse stick and a tennis ball. I joined in to help Kathleen. My weapon: a dustpan. Needless to say, Kathleen and I lost.

This is Sam and I. Laura took the picture. It looks like I'm pulling snot out of my nose, but it's not snot. It's just fake spiderweb. Getting the picture?

These are some of my neighbors, Anneka and Mary. For Anneka's birthday (which happened before fall break), Mary (her roommate and one of the RA's), decided to fill their room with balloons. This is a picture of the plan having been fulfilled. Now you're wondering how did we get all the balloons in there. We, meaning Mary, Laura and I, blew them up a few days in advance. Where did we store them? My room.

This is my other RA, Niran.

This is a squirrel.
These two pictures are connected. That lovely little critter was inside our building. That's right, there was a squirrel inside Albright. Well, some people had chased it and cornered it in some one's room and had Niran catch it and take it outside. The next day the same squirrel was back inside the building and in some one's room. Niran went to go catch it again to repeat the process. Well this time, the squirrel bit him and held on. Niran still got the squirrel out of the building, but he also had to go to the hospital and get a rabies shot. Niran was at the hospital from 7pm the evening to 6am the next morning.
And that my dears, is what happens here. Hall Hockey to fake snot to rooms filled with balloons to capture the squirrel to rabies shots. There is never a dull moment when your hall is filled with a bunch of crazies.

Fall Break

Well, fall break has come and gone for me. As you all know, I was home for the break. It was nice to see you guys, but it's really nice to be back in room 223 Albright, Queens University. I'm back here with my friends trying to get back into the swing of things, and I must say, it's a bit difficult. Robin and I modified a dress of mine, and I must say that it looks fantastic. Everyone who's seen it so far agrees. And right now I have to go dance to a song that is playing. Yep, everything is back to normal around here.

Things You Realize

To me it seems that as soon as I left home everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING, kind of started to go down the toilet. I'm a little curious about that fact. Maybe it's because for some odd reason my crazy sense of humor and anti-seriousness and A.D.D. keep everything together, or maybe everything was falling down and I just didn't realize it because I was an insider. And we all know that an insider can't see what's going because they are caught up in playing their part. either a.) my leaving was a result in taking the key stone out of this proverbial archway so it falls or b.) my leaving was well timed to get me out of this brewing and bubbling craziness, discord and have just got to love those light bulb moments. In other news, the latest paper that I did for my CORE class got the grade of a B+ and we just finished watching the movie TOMBSTONE in my English class. Great quote from that movie is...."I've got two guns: one for each of you" said by Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday.

Halloween Spirit

As we all know it is the lovely month of October, and at the end of this month is the holdiday that I live for each year.....HALLOWEEN!!! The only day when I get to dress up and act like somebody else all day and it's perfectly normal. Well, here in Albright, we're having a door decorating contest. So, of course I am going pretty far out there for it, along with my friend Amanda who lives at the other end of the hall. It simply started out as a trip to Target to get a few things that were needed around the dorm, and it turned into a door decorating trip. We've simply decided that since we've helped each other decorate our doors, that when one of us wins we'll split the prize. Here....there are pictures too.

Amanda and Kathleen and the skeleton prisioner across from Amanda's door.

Me hanging lights around my door.

Joel (who was commendeered and forced to help against his will) putting up the scary wall cling of the skeleton comming out of the wall with an axe. We named the skeleton Jim.

Albright Epidemic: Zombie Wars

Well, I would like to say that I am feeling a lot better. YAY! This weekend in my building we're playing a game called Zombie Wars. Pretty much, if you get tagged with a spoon by a zombie (somebody wearing red) then you're a zombie too. The object: don't get zombie-i-fied. If your a zombie, the object: zombie-i-fy as many people as possible. I am not playing, because I am just too cool. Actually, I thought that the Albright Epidemic was going to be effecting me this weekend, but apparently it's not. Anyhow....what have I been up to at college you might ask? Well, there's always the tree climbing, sprinkler running, and tag playing all at midnight or so. Oh might I add that I kick butt at all of that. I am a beast. My friend, Joel....aka Hobo Joel or Sprinkles, is one of the people that I've commandeered for this. Other people occasionally go along with this commandeering, but sometimes they are just bupkisses and decide not to play along with the fun games. Well anyhow, I am a beast at climbing/shimming up trees on campus. This has been proven and there are several witnesses to this....including the campus police. Apparently tree climbing at 12:30 at night is a suspicious activity.

Albright Epidemic

There's an epidemic sweeping my building, and everybody who's gotten it has gotten sick. And yes, I am one of the victims. I have gotten sick with the cold that's ravaging my floor. Well, I'm looking at the fact that it could be worse and I could not be able to talk or move, and thankfully I can. I just have a sore throat, a cough, and a slightly stuffy nose. So, here's to the Day-Quill, cough drops, hot tea and chicken noodle soup, and hopefully I'll be better soon.
