The Quad

It is officially the first day of Spring (in my opinion). I had my first "girl in bikini" sighting today in the quad!! Whoever that was in the pink bikini, you are awesome!! haha.

And on the topic of people in the Quad. Whoever the three boys who decided it was OK to play frisbee *right* in the area I was taking a nap...that was definitely NOT cool...I am only thankful I was not hit by the frisbee...

Dear Friends,

I have just read and signed the online petition:

I personally agree with what this petition says, and I think you might
agree, too. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider
signing yourself.

Engineering Open House!

College of Engineering Open House 2004 is this Friday and Saturday!

There will be a ton of fun exhibits. I know the Chemical Engineering ones will be great, so be sure to stop by Benson Hall (behind Bagley) during your breaks or sometime during the day.

You can make your own ice cream, or your own silly putty, and a whole bunch of other things. And we have a new exhibit this year where you make earrings with titanium strips using electrochemical nanotechnology, which would make a unique and free Mother's Day Gift.

Everything is free!

CD RW Repair

Hey lovely UDubbers

My favorite CDs are scratched up and jumping all over the place like a horny frog on fire.

Question: how do you repair scratched CDs? I've heard of CD un-scratch kits and the CD Hospital. Are there options like that locally? Do *you* have a CD unscratch kit for lend (in exchange for say... a swanky lunch at a swanky place on the Ave)?

Gracias, and don't fall in Drumheller.


U-district Sublet

I posted this awhile ago and didn't get much of a reply. So, here it is again for those who missed it and might be interested.

Need a place to stay for the summer near UW?

I've got to leave for the summer months, leaving behind a lease that ends on August 31st. The place is on the corner of 55th & 20th, ten blocks North of campus right on the 74 busline (takes you directly to The Ave and then Seattle Center) with free parking, chill housemates, and a three minute walk to a grocery store.

The room is a single all to yourself and comes fully furnished with a bed, desk, dresser, small couch, bookshelf, and bedside table. The closet has full-length mirrors and the lighting is adequate. Cable TV, highspeed DSL, and landline phone are all consolidated in one easy-to-reach outlet, meaning there are no unsightly wires taped to the floors and such. The room is in the basement, but there are four windows which allow plenty of light in. And being in a cool basement is a nice place to be on hot summer days in Seattle.

Ofcourse that's not all. The basement has a second kitchen, bathroom, and living room, all less then ten feet from the bedroom door. It's like having a house or studio to yourself for the price of one room. And also, right next to the bedroom is a newly refurbished pool table for use by all, and outside is a campfire pit also free to use by all in the house.

Rent is $450 a month, move in anytime after mid-June or so, I'm pretty flexible. Let me know what you think!

Here are some picturesCollapse )
