I agree with the university's response to the hubbub, although the timing isn't so hot. Lots of testing and final projects and stuff going on right now for summer students. The campus is pretty inaccessible today, what with all the protesters for both sides and all the security.
A news team was on campus yesterday reporting on the upcoming Trump visit, and got some comments from a few students, one of whom was our Wolfgang,
which was really my main reason for mentioning Trump's visit. I'm not political here, remember? And no, Wolfgang doesn't have a weird soul patch. I just made a screenshot from the news video, so that dark blob on his chin is the play button.
Wolfgang didn't say anything controversial, just said something like, "I was gonna come to campus to study on Friday, but everything's gonna be closed and there'll be security everywhere, so ... guess not"
I told him his hair looked good and that he must have a talented barber.
|Not my hands, not my hail|
In other news, last night we got a bludgeoning from Mother Nature. Not "We" as in this particular household and property, but south and east of us took a walloping. Look at the size of these hails. And I know that's not proper grammar in referring to hail, but they're just so enormous, it seemed appropriate.
I understand hail is mainly in certain parts of the country. We get lots of it. If you live somewhere that doesn't get hail, know that it can really hurt and really damage property. Kiss your flower garden good-bye.
This morning, I got a text from Chaco:
"Might have to open an insurance claim on the Civic... quite a few dents from hail"
Yeah, he lives south and east of us.
In other other news, something's up with my phone. Here's a tidbit about me: I don't like talking on the phone - possibly a subject for a later blog post - but just know that I don't like to. Sometimes it's necessary and useful, and in those situations, I appreciate phone talking, but I don't seem to currently be able to.
My phone rings. I answer. The following conversation, or something similar, ensues.
Phone person: hello?
Phone person: hello?
Well, you get the gist. It seems I am not being heard. I'm tempted to go to the phone store right now and see what's what, but this just started happening in the last 24 hours, so I don't want to go there and find out my phone works fine.
That's what's going on around here. Don't call.
