Yesterday, I went back to good old Kent State for a dedication ceremony.

If you recall, I did a design for the College of Education, which was merging with a couple other "colleges" and needed to renovate their space to accommodate everyone and everything. Last week my professor I worked with on it called me at work and asked if I would be interested in attending the dedication ceremony.

Let me think about this for a second.....uh, heck yeah!

So, I went there and the space looked magnificent! Of course, the whole layout wasn't exactly like I designed, but pretty darn close. Someone's interior designer daughter did the finishes and furniture and it's not exactly what I would have selected, but overall it looked good.

Once I introduced myself as the design student who did the layout, all the workers in this office just gushed at how much they LOVED the space! I got my picture taken, which I assume is for the Kent Stater and I was also told that a reporter from TV2 (Kent's TV station) would be contacting me for an interview. If that doesn't say "SUPERSTAR!" I don't know what does!

Best of all, the dean said that if I needed a reference, I could call on her! Not too shabby, eh?!

You can be jealous of me, it's ok.

Friday night Zen and I went to see a play at the local theatre. It was called "Final Assault" as written by none other than David Selby! Now, if you're not quite sure who that is, take a look at a couple pics I found online.

David from his Dark Shadows days.

A more recent picture of David

After being entertained by David's play, we mingled with the cast and the playwright himself! He took pictures with his fans...

...hung out with the crowd...

...and partook of the wonderful refreshments

Then, sat them right in front of where I was standing!

That was my exciting brush with fame.
And I know, you're extremely jealous. It's ok.

Phone pics

Here are a few pics that I transferred from my phone to my computer...finally!

These are from my trip to PA for a conference there.

I know you can't read the street sign, but it's "Big Beaver Boulevard."
And what just happens to be ON Big Beaver Boulevard???

HA!!! I love irony like that!

This is one I took b/c it was just great! The license plate is RST N PCE.
Guess what they're livelihood is?

Finally, here's a pic of a guy trying to look as manly as he can while driving a pink hot rod.

My wrist seems to be getting better, however, it's been quite challenging to type and hit the correct keys! If I don't correct it, it tends to look something like this: thisis me treying to tupe with myt nrace pm wothout edoting. Wow!

It's comin gupon one week since I got this thing to wear 24-7 and I've discovered a few things.
  1. It is difficult to shake hands properly with it.
  2. I can make 3/4 of the Sign of the Cross (If you're not Catholic, that's when we do that hand thing from the forehead, to the chest and from shoulder to shoulder)
  3. People tend to talk to me more even if it's always asking, "What happened to your arm?" Most think it's a bowling injury. I tell them I'm not that good enough to get an injury from playing the sport. Plus, if I did get injured, it would be my feet that were injured b/c I dropped the ball on them.
  4. I'm glad it's fall. Can you imagine the tan line I'd have?!
  5. It's a great way to get out of mowing the lawn.
  6. Somehow from when I go to sleep until I wake up, my brace decides it's had enough of protecting my wrist and feels my pillow needs some support.

In other news,

In my last post, I said how I had to take a break from the net b/c of my wrist being painful after working on the computer all day. Well, I finally had enough and went to the urgent care center in town. (Wonder if those would still exist if we had national healthcare?)

The doctor asked the usual questions of what was going on and what my symptoms were. So, I told him what was up and he came to the conclusion that I had a strained ligament. His "cure?" A pretty cool wrist brace and 800mg of Motrin three times a day. Woo hoo!

Here are a couple pics of my new arm candy:

For some reason, no webbing came out when I did this. Mine must be broken.

I've asked people at work if they'd like to play "Ernest Angley" with me, but so far, everyone's declined. :(

I now have about 2 weeks of wearing this thing and hopefully it will take care of it. Then I can get back to full-time blogging and have it start all over again!!!
