i'm a machine, you're a woman

(no subject)

I have suddenly had a shift in my traveling options, and I was actually quite baffled at how completely wordy and complicated the UW Parking Website is. I need to start driving now to the UW and I was wondering if any of you have any tips regarding the parking available.

As far as I can make out from the website, I am to:

- Go to the UW Parking office
- Get a Parking Pass

I assume I will have to go to the Unrestricted Parking Areas. I was curious: what are the regulations surrounding this?

What am I even doing?

Classes today

Does anyone know if there's any way to find out if the GRE preparation course that I'm registered for at the U this morning is still running? I assume it is, since this really isn't a lot of snow and will probably be gone by noon, but I'm sure you all can sympathize with the desire to go back to bed on a morning like this.

And yes, I'm fully aware that it's a Saturday.

Also, while I'm on the subject, and recommendations for where to park that's closest to Sieg Hall? I'm not a student (yet!) so I'm not familiar with campus, and the maps that I'm looking at make it look like there's no good parking places close to Sieg.

Or are all of you still in bed and won't see this until I'm already in class. Probably. Worth asking, though.

Bowling Team

Hey, does anybody on here like to bowl? I want to start a bowling team for the league/tournament thing on campus. There's a $20 fee for the team, and then $3 per person each time the team bowls. Four people bowl in one night, but we can have more people on the roster as subs and stuff. I figure everyone on the team would split eht $20, and take care of their $3 per night that the team bowls themselves. If anyone is interested, I'd like to know. Thanks.

Costume shops in Seattle?


Anyone know of a historical costume place in Seattle that sells metal boning for corsets? I'm trying to avoid the plastic boning at regular crafts/fabric stores, but I have no clue where else to look, as I'm not really familar with the SCA/historical costuming/medieval reconstruction/etc. club, if there is such a group at UW.

So, I was wondering if anyone had linear algebra and its applications, the third edition, by Lay, available to buy / borrow for the quarter.

I hear it snowed.... but all I see when I look out my window are tired tracks where my neighbors are trying to grow new grass :p

My bike was stolen within the last 24 hours from Mary Gates Hall. It is a Blue on Black Giant SE with front shocks and handlebar attachments. It was locked and I've already contacted UWPD and filed a report.


I *need* this bike to travel the distances I do in the time I do it. If you think you've seen it or know someone who has, *please* contact me: zero4875@u.washington.edu

Thank you for your concern


No matter what I do, my secure file transfer on my computer will NOT recognize that "dante.u.washington.edu" exhists. Is there somethign I missed, is this not where the host is located anymore? It's extremely frustrating not being able to upload files.

is it supposed to be this hard?

-Ok, so I guess I'm just looking for some other people's thoughts/ opinions..

- I'm a broke ass student (like most of the rest of us) and looking for a job, and I've been looking for one for months.. Sort of since the summer I suppose, and I haven't gotten absolutely anywhere! Is it supposed to be really hard to find a job on campus and whatnot?-- I applied for HFS desk services twice (aut, winter qtr) and nothing, the IMA twice, and again nothing, all sorts of "student assistant wanted" jobs on campus and.. nothing. This is slightly frusterating to say the least. I'm hoping, for my own sanity, that the reason I'm unable to get the Desk/ IMA jobs is that my class sched. doesn't fit with their sched. openings, and the student assistant jobs-- well I guess I'm not qualified enough, for absolutely anything. I admit, the only thing I can do well in microsoft works is type an essay.. doesn't help anything. And for the holiday season, I plastered the U village and Northgate with apps and resumes, and once again.. nothing, except for 1 interview really, and a "i'll make a note that you called to enquire about your application" (from the bakery). I guess my lack of any sort of baking background didnt help me any to get the job...I also check The Daily classifieds rather regularly and craigslist every now and again..I guess its too bad I'm not a huge fan of babysitting, hah. Well to finish this long winded rant (sorry)..
- Any one have any tips for scoring a job around town? Should I call places back repeatitvily to check on the status of my app.. so show I really want the job and whatnot?.. Eh.. Being broke sucks.. It has forced me to move back home for winter qtr, if not the rest of the yr, .. and commute 60 damn miles everyday, bah.

thanks for reading this "long ass post", heh.
