Chancellor Ryan Is Love

The other day(the 16th) I was composing a blog entry from the hallowed(...) halls of one Dodson Auditorium. I proceeded to lose my entire post but, it being one of those posts I could do without, I decided not to try and resurrect it. I was sitting in this smelly auditorium waiting for a lecture on Globalization (big G) and Language Vitality to commence. Once the Marcella arrived though, I remembered the Chancellor of my fair university was to be doing a spot of talking at the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student Athelets(redundant?), more specifically in the E.R "Bo" Campbell Auditorium. I know, it's a mouthful of advertisement and alumnus plugging you'd never see at UNO, but alas, LSU is rife with it.

Tim Ryan proceeded to elaborate on the status of the campus, the fact that his house is under 10 feet of water, and even reassured someone that if a high level Poli-Sci class would not be taught this, or next semester, that he "knew enough about politics to teach the course." Truly charming in the wake of disaster. I left impressed and safe in the knowledge that UNO was in good hands. And I got a free t-shirt! Oh, UNO, why do you spoil me so? I just love wearing a gray shirt with a pirate on the back in this blinding sea of yellow.

In other news, my stay at Casa del Campbell, Adam and Erin's house, will end very shortly. We, Marcella, Ed, Jamie, and I managed to get a four month lease on the place we'd been eyeing. I guess the landlord had one ounce of sympathy in his cold heart, considering that he tried to snake us into a year lease at first, KNOWING that we were refugees. Criminal. Or at least it should be. They watch for price gouging on gas and essential items during times of crisis, WHY THE HELL NOT HOMES???

Ah well, time for class. Computer Science is a waste of my time at LSU. Please look at the textbook required for this class.

"C for Tigers?"
