Who says work email has to be professional?
Greetings, One and All!
Due to the testing in the labs through May 20,
Mobile Lab 2 is living in the Library.
It is booked every day during 4th and 5th P
For our class on computer exploratory,
But is otherwise free in the rear of IMC.
To check on its availability,
Please contact our librarian to see
When its free to be for thee.
If you dont require any mobile lab lore,
Please I urge that this message you ignore.
Though I should probably have mentioned that before.
Now, like Benedict, I feel quite the traitor.
Apologies and Thanks!
Sincerely, Evan Fry-or
That’ll get their attention. I got a compliment from the big boss, so I think I’m safe.
Dude: “Hey, wanna go get some lunch?”
Guy: “Sure! What sounds good?”
Dude: “How about getting some tacos?”
Guy: “Nah, Mexican upsets my stomach. Let’s just hit up a sandwich place.”
Dude: “Works for me.”
Guy: “Hmm… what to get… Maybe a wrap. What comes on that?”
Delicateer: “It’s meat, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream in a flour tortilla.”
Guy: “Delicious! I’ll have that.”
Dude: “You know you’re an idiot, right?”
Breaking out of the water, his lungs filled with cold air. Thin hair matted down and pale face framed by the splashing water. The world glowed red behind tightly closed eyes.
Throwing out an arm, he grasped the wooden dock. Pulling up his weight, both forearms holding him up, he drew in breath after breath.
Basking with his face in the sun, he stayed hanging in the water, savoring the clear air that had been absent for what felt like half a lifetime. In and out were the only thoughts.
Finally his eyes opened, the vision blurred in spots by drops of water on eyelashes. With a deep breath, he finally brought his body out of the water. Crawling on his knees on the dock, the sun-warmed wood felt welcoming to his skin. He rolled over and fell asleep with the sun on his smiling face.
Waking later, the sun slightly lower, he got up. He dusted off a bit and stretched onto the balls of his feet. Looking around the horizon, his eyes finally adjusted. At long last, with a deep sigh of relief, he set off down the dock and along the path.
A slight grin curled his cheek.
My apologies for the lack of updating here. I’m sure I’ll fill you all in another time as to why. But suffice to say: we’re on long overdue vacation in California for Spring Break.
From March 11, Day 1.
Waiting at the gate in MSP. The consequence of creating the iPhone so easy a child could use it.
The view out half the windows at my parents’ house.
Boy and pond. Things were thrown.
So much green.
My girls as the sun sets.
Sunset behind the Sutter Buttes and the very distant gray Coastal Mountains.
From March 12, Day 2.
Snack time with an audience.
Off to visit Great Grandma. And the kids basically looked like blurs running around. At least M and I had a chance to sit and visit.
Em brought Granda Pam some flowers.
Pouting about something.
Preparing the flowers with Gram and Great Grandma.
Goofing around at snack time.
I believe this was a great big, “Pleeeeease!?” to milk Gram for all she’s worth.
Four generations of the women in my life.
The German Koenen descendants.
Dinner overlooking the world.
We are so happy to be here. A great sigh of relief came when we finally boarded the plane and knew we were on our way. Now we get to enjoy sleepy, rainy days in the gold country up here. As long as I get to read and Gram and Granddad get some good time in with the kids, it will all be a grand success.
