Good Day

1. Today I was introduced to Rock Band, the video game. I despise video games and donuts; Rock Band and Krispy Kremes are The Exceptions. I especially love the drums.

2. My friend Chase introduced me to Rock Band, and the girl in the apartment below his made the unfortunate choice of turning her air conditioner off while she went home for a month after her exams ended. She came home today to huge circles of greenish brown mold on everything from her ceiling to carpet, lampshade to bed. Everything was ruined. There were guys in hazmat suits cracking out the sheetrock and throwing away her stuff. Note: do not leave your apartment in the Alabama summer with the air conditioner turned off for long periods of time. Bad things will happen.

3. My first job, at 14, was working at a snoball stand. I thought the stands were an exclusively northern delight, but there is one in Tuscaloosa that is fabulous. I plan to patronize it frequently and sport the resulting blue tongue (favorite flavor: blue raspberry) with confidence.

4. Oh yeah, and I made it to class. It was not noteworthy.

ADDED: Chase took some pictures of the moldy house. Check it out:

Where in Tuscaloosa? When my wife was pregnant in Austin, we went to Casey's New Orleans Snoballs everyday in June & July.

Dude, I don't remember the name, but it's on University and has Tiger's Blood as a flavor.

Holy shit, I'm glad I left my HVAC running before I left town. Hopefully an 85 degree temperature and a dehumidifier are enough to keep this from happening.

Dear god, that is disturbing. Alabama humidity is nothing to laugh about!
