Construction gripes

What's the deal with fencing off the entire goshdarned campus in the name of construction? Every morning and every evening, I have to find a brand new route because they keep fencing off more and more of the area around Drumheller Fountain. At first it was just a small portion, and then they started fencing off more, and more, and more, until today, I was positively puzzled as to how I was supposed to get to the CSE building.

I wish they would put a little sign or map or something to show me where I'm supposed to go, so I don't keep aimlessly circling and circling the fence trying to find a way through. I saw a "pedestrian detour" sign and I was like, wooohooo! Great! And then guess what? The sign was INSIDE the fenced area. Terrific.


Anyway, what do y'all think about all the construction going on?

The Collective and ASUW Presents an Interactive Murder Mystery!

If you see only one show this year, this is it – The Collective’s Interactive Murder Mystery!

Shortly after arriving for the evening festivities, a murder will occur… and the killer is hidden somewhere in the crowd. Complete with appetizers and a worthy performance space (the HUB) this show will pit your wits against devilish evildoers in a race to figure out whodunit – before they strike again! You’ll have full access to the clues that crop up, and be able (and expected!) to interrogate anyone in the room to your heart’s content.

When does it go down, you ask? Why, this upcoming week, on Thursday the 20th and Friday the 21st at 8PM. Each show is completely different, and carries a different theme and cast of characters. Thursday evening will be an Art Gallery Showing, and Friday is a High School Reunion. Please dress accordingly – you’ll be provided with your new nametags at the start of the night, encouragement to mingle, and the opportunity to interact with the performers as you wish… can you keep track of who is spinning lies?

How do you get into this (very) limited admittance interactive theater? Get your tickets in advance at the HUB ticket office for the low (remember, it includes food – the Friday show is even catered by Jimmy Johns!) price of $10 student admission ($11 faculty, staff, and general admission).

You’re not going to find a better place to take a date, nor a more engaging evening anywhere – don’t miss out!

You can find more information at our website, http://www.scriptsareforsissies.com . Tickets are on sale now, and can only be bought in advance at the HUB ticket office. See you at the show!

Ah, yes, furniture for sale!

  • $50 (or best offer): a nice, very, very comfy blue couch. Fits a tall person easily, sleep on it, sit on it, whatever, it's great. I'm sad to part with it, but it just doesn't fit into our new apartment's entrance into the living room because of a stupid corner in the way that made moving stuff in very, very hard (grrr for poor floorplan design!). It has removable covers that are easy to wash (washed a couple days ago, too..) made of sturdy blue material. Come and look at it, and hopefully get it!

  • $75 (or best offer): a sturdy solid wood twin size bed + box spring + Ikea mattress. Nice bed, lightly colored wood with natural finish, blue thin box spring, comfortable Ikea spring mattress less than a year old (I have back problems and this mattress made life much better..). Good deal for these things. No more use for the bed, that's the reason for selling, no problems with it whatsoever.

Call @ 425-785-9197 anytime! I'm up late.

I ride the bus from stevens way to north seattle CC to go home. It takes me an hour to get home, I know that isnt horriable, but I was wondering if there was a faster bus that anyone knew of around campus that toook you to north seattle?

summer storage

What do all of you out-of-staters do with all your stuff over the summer? I'm going home to the east coast this summer, and I have accumulated about 30 suitcases worth of crap since I've been here. I don't want to sell it all for $5 on craigslist so I can buy it back for full price next fall, nor do I want to pay tons of money for extra baggage on the flight home. I've heard of some schools having a communal storage unit for students. Is there anything like that here?

I suppose as a last resort I could stash it with someone here, but I'd prefer not to impose. Thanks!
