Apparently a bunch of co-workers were stuck on campus until late at night--past 10pm or so! That'll probably be me in a couple of years. Yikes...
Had a nice dinner with Sarah last night at Mothers
which not only has fantastic vegetarian food, but great smoothies, a beautiful solarium/garden, live music on weekends (often featuring Doc Grauzer
) and a honest to God vintage Reznor
heater. Now, my most favorite item is their chips and salsa that come gratis. Only problem is that consuming more than a teaspoon of that stuff gives you dragon breath that could cause a whole room of people to suffocate. I swear that salsa is 50% garlic and damn, it is GOOD. Rest assured I packed my toothbrush, toothpast, mouthwash and gum in my purse before dining.
Glass class was okay. I'm getting more used to the large industrial torch. I am, however, getting really tired of Sarah's doppleganger, Sarah, calling me a beginner or emphasizing that I'm a beginner. Shit, we learned bead making at the same time. I've sold stuff for the past 5 years, but she still goes "Oh, I know
you need the practice..." or "this technicque can be difficult for beginners, like you..." I realize her skill set is better than mine, but the difference is that she does glasswork full time. I do this as a hobby. :( Grrr...so, in that aspect, she doesn't act like the Sarah I had dinner with. Other aspects though---damn, it's creepy. They look like each other and they share the same phrases. It's very convenient that they've got the same name. Hence accidentally calling one of them something like, oh I dunno, Colleen, wouldn't have happened.
I got a $50 gift card from my bro for my birthday. It's got Sesame Street characters on it.
