Free expressing, work, a pre-advising session, homework, and flexing...

I was up at 5:30 this morning to make it to McDonald's for a "team" breakfast. The team consisted of the STC folks who volunteered to paint the Free Expression Tunnel at State today with advertisements for our upcoming Benefit Rock Concert.

By 6:05, they still hadn't opened the doors (they open at 6:00), so instead of just tapping on my watch, I walked around to the 24-hour drivethru, and said, "Do you open at 6?"

"Yes," we do the guy working the window said.

"Well, there's a bunch of us waiting to get in at that door on the other side of the building."

"Yes, we know." He said.

I walked back around, and by the time I got there, they were unlocking the door.

We left for the tunnel at about 6:25, and this, visually, is how the next hour-and-a-half unfolded:

The painting crew waits for MickyD's to open!

Nice rhetorical use of an unordered list -- style choice by Kim.

Look it!
John adds a "document" on the ground for sulking passersby.

Ooooh BABY!
Another chalk talk in the brickyard.

Chalk Worked to the Nub
She's willing to BLEED for STC. That's why Kim's our president.

Fabulous Chalk!
There's Chatham -- our other stalker; er, I mean chalker!

Thanks, baby, for use of your camera!

I worked from home until 2:30 today, and then rode into the office to scan and e-mail edits to Mary Mahoney.

After that, from a Word file copy of Casey's document, I made a PDF file, and tested both some internal and external links in it.

The traffic coming home from RTP was an absolute nightmare.

I took the 4:55-ish bus to campus, and arrived at Tompkins at 5:17, in plenty of time to make the 5:30 Pre-advising Session sponsored by STC. Yee-haw; two STC events within twelve hours of each other on the same day.

Does anyone else think it's just plain wrong to have "commercials" taped onto the desk surfaces in the classroom? One of these was stuck on each desk in the room:

I worked on some COM598M homework this evening.

I met Kevin at Flex for Trailer Park Prize Night at around 11:30.
