Just a notice . . . If you are in the vacinity of BAGLEY HALL (right next Drumheller Fountain) and are interested in donating to UNICEF and the Red Cross International Response Fund for the victims of natural disasters in Southeast Asia, there is a donation box in the main office of the Chemistry Department, 109 Bagley Hall. So if you're nearby and want to drop off some change or bills (or cheques, if you're feeling generous), it would be greatly appreciated. All donations will be split evenly between the two groups.
While it was still active, there was a thriving community on Socialjournal known as 'uwfood'. This community allowed people using that Internet Journaling Service(tm) to come together (generally at the flag pole and generally on Fridays) and eat lunch at a location on the Ave that would be debated about and debated about before we finally gave up and just went to the Mongolian Grill place.
Now, that community has been reborn on Livejournal as uwfood! So if you like food, eating food, cool people, and possibly eating cool people, join up TODAY!
Since our religious leaders will not speak out against the war in Iraq, since our political leaders don't have the moral courage to oppose it, Inauguration Day, Thursday, January 20th, 2005 is "Not One Damn Dime Day" in America.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day," those who oppose what is happening in our name in Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national boycott of all forms of consumer spending.
During "Not One Damn Dime Day" please don't spend money. Not one damn dime for gasoline. Not one damn dime for necessities or for impulse purchases. Not one damn dime for anything for 24 hours.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day," please boycott Walmart, KMart and Target. Please don't go to the mall or the local convenience store. Please don't buy any fast food (or any groceries at all for that matter).
For 24 hours, please do what you can to shut the retail economy down. The object is simple. Remind the people in power that the war in Iraq is immoral and illegal; that they are responsible for starting it and that it is their responsibility to stop it.
"Not One Damn Dime Day" is to remind them, too, that they work for the people of the United States of America, not for the international corporations and K Street lobbyists who represent the corporations and funnel cash into American politics.
"Not One Damn Dime Day" is about supporting the troops. The politicians put the troops in harm's way. Now 1,200 brave young Americans and (some estimate) 100,000 Iraqis have died. The politicians owe our troops a plan -- a way to come home.
There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No left or right wing agenda to rant about. On "Not One Damn Dime Day" you take action by doing nothing. You open your mouth by keeping your wallet closed. For 24 hours, nothing gets spent, not one damn dime, to remind our religious leaders and our politicians of their moral responsibility to end the war in Iraq and give America back to the people
Tomorrow night at 8:00pm in the Ethnic Cultural Theater there will be the monthly Open Mic Poetry/Hip Hop Night. It has been going on for about 4 Years now and is free for anyone interested in attending. The only problem is that as UW's population increases, the audience has been thinning due to insufficient publicity to UW's many clubs and groups which help make up the smaller community.
We would seriously love your help in making this monthly event a success. It's one of the unique opportunities offered by the OMA to let the school's population experience the power of poetry through its' honest expression of emotion. And of course it stay on the hip hop tip so all you hiphop heads will like what you see.
Come out for a night and help make the OMA's Open Mic Poetry/Hip Hop Night a success. Crowd participation is encouraged andtrust me, you'll have a great time. We need to keep the audience in order to guarantee the show stays free and that the show stay running. Help us, help you.

I still have my Sociology book from last quarter (Soc 212) entitled "Human Societies: An Introduction to Macrosociology." It's the 9th edition softcover. I pretty much never read it, so it's in brand new condition. The edge has a tiny purple area where it looks like some ink got smudged on it, but it didn't get on any pages. There is minimal highlighting in the first few pages. I bet I could return it to the bookstore for a full refund because it looks that new.
Anyway, if anyone needs it for this quarter, I'd be more than willing to sell it to you for a better price than the bookstore.
So after making a change (or two) to my schedule, what all happened today in cse373? Anything interesting and exciting and, well... that I need to know about? Didn't attend because I was sitting in spanish, but alas, it is gone now.
