DSM Adventures

One day at work, I got bored. I noticed in my drawer that I didn’t have any rubberbands. I asked a coworker, Kristin, if she had any. She gave me a box that was half full. I decided to shoot them at coworkers. In fact, I spent nearly 30 minutes shooting them. They enjoyed it, especially since they got more rubberbands.

The next day I had a hunch…call it intuition, call it what you want, but I thought I better bring my fake poop feces to work with me the next day. I showed up at my desk, and it was absolutely covered with rubberbands. I would have taken a picture, but my camera’s dead. So, I “pooped” “feced” on Val’s chair (she’s one of the culprits). My poop feces traveled from desk to desk, surprising all, and bringing joy to everyone’s faces.

Today, I went in to work a few hours. Since it’s a holiday, I had to use my electronic key for the first time ever. I was the only one on 2nd floor. I decided to head downstairs to the lunchroom and buy a Powerade. I walked through lots of doors that are normally open during the day. As I made my way back, I ran into a door that doesn’t open. In fact, it’s locked. And my key is upstairs on my desk. Along with my cell phone, car keys, and hotel key. After lots of helpless thinking, knocking, searching, and tears, I decided I have to start walking to the hotel. As I leave the parking lot, a white van pulls in. I followed it and asked the driver if he had a key to the building. He had a key to ONE of them, and we didn’t know if it would work to mine. Turns out it did, and I returned to my desk. End of story.

Flower Power

flowerI have never been a huge flower person. Not like a lot of girls, anyway. I do think they’re pretty and smell nice and are extremely thoughtful…but when Valentine’s Day comes around, or my birthday, flowers are not something I expect. Nor do I get disappointed when I don’t get them. But after recounting the past two semesters, I realized I have received an amount of flowers probably equal to what I have ever received in the past.

Homecoming (Sept. 2005)
Joyce and Mike Wiggins sent me a faux red rose along with a crown for good luck. They said something cheesy about no matter what, I’ll always be a queen in their hearts. *awwhh*

Date Auction (Sept. 2005)
I got a carnation thing when I was up on the date auction during Homecoming. I will not do anything like that again. Ever. Unless the money goes to me.

The Actor’s Nightmare (Apr. 2006)
Dr. Susan Conover gave each actor and actress a colored carnation, sprayed with glitter. Mine was pink.

The Actor’s Nightmare (Apr. 2006)
Miles sent me my favorite kind of flowers, pink daisies as a form of good luck.

Theater Awards Banquet (May 2006)
Dr. Conover gave each Comedy Bytes member a carnation, sprayed with glitter. Mine was yellow.

Battling Pianos (May 2006)
Dr. John Laflin and Barb Hegg asked me to be their page-turner for their duet recital. In appreciation, they gave me three red roses.

I’m starting to like them a little bit more.  :)

Best for last

Today has been a day of a few “lasts” for me.

…I will buy an orange Powerade from the TC this semester.

…my residents could turn in forwarding address cards.

…I will do dishes this semester.

…I will play intramural softball with “I’m a bowling trophy”.

Happy almost Cinco de Mayo!
