End of the quarter.

My classes ended on Friday, leaving me with just one final.  As of Wednesday at four PM I’ll be finished with my junior year.  To be incredibly cryptic and vague, I have some plans for things.  Maybe.  Sorta.  That’s all I’m going to say until I think about it a little more.

I’ve been thinking about Senegal a lot in the past week or two.  Mainly because it’s getting pretty hot.  It was supposedly in the upper 80s today, leading me to take a Senegalese shower (freezing water).  I’ve been very sleepy, leading me to turn onto my back in the mornings and stretch out in hopes that I’ll wake up more, but twice now I’ve passed out again in this rather silly position and woken up soon after because my arms were completely asleep.  Speaking of things from Senegal, I made this dress:


Fabric from HLM market in Dakar.  I have a few adjustments to make, but for the most part I’m very happy with the results.

We’ve had a lot of excellent storms along with the heat, including a very exciting tornado warning on Friday.  By “very exciting” I mean that I’m sure it was probably very exciting to people who spend significant quantities of time above ground, unlike those of us who live in the basement of the Fine Arts Building.  I was in the cage (what you call the room where costumes are stored) which is probably the safest place I could ever imagine in which to spend my time.  I think the entire city could be bombed out while you’re down there, and you’d never know it until you left.  All that underground fiber insulation, you know.

On that note, I need to stop doing this:


And work on my project.  We’ll see how that goes.

    I remember once being in the costume room of the Lydia Mendelssohn, the bowels of the building. I felt safe there. We were worried about Izzy and Piggy though in their cages under the table in our basement at the Landfill.

    …and Nook is right in the midst of where all those tornadoes and floods have been encroaching in western central Illinois (AKA, Havana, IL – Google it – it’s a teensy flyspeck SW of Peoria, SE of Lewistown, and an hour’s or so drive from Hannibal Cave, MO).

    In fact, she reported today (via TXT) that the Civic nearly got eaten by floodwaters. When asked if the waters had gone over the doorsills, she then informed me that the floodwaters had only JUST reached the tires. She moved the car as far as she could from them (only about 50 ft), so I imagine she’ll have to find another place to park before too much longer… 😯

    I need to post… I’m working on lots of fun pretty things.

    Love you and miss you and wish I could revel in the glory of working in a yarn store with you, but alas you’re far away :( you should come visit…. not like it’s a super long drive or expensive flight or anything… oops.
