Sucka free someday

J had a wee encounter the other day in the gym. She went to work out after her open house, so she was there at about 9:30 pm. And there was still a line for the treadmills!

But she is waiting, as is another girl, when one becomes available, but before she can make a move towards it, some other chick swoops in and hops on. The other girl waiting convinces J to go say something. It went something like this:
J: There's a line.
Chick: There is?
J: Yes, I was here first and that girl is behind me.
Chick: Says who?
J: (can't quite remember the exact quote) Everyone.
Chick: Well you don't have to get an attitude about it.
She then gets off the treadmill and waits her turn.

It's called society chickee. It has these rules that people follow so that anarchy doesn't spontaneously break out. When the univ. only has about 12 treadmills for roughly 17,000 people, not including faculty and community members, there has to be some semblance of order.

We were just informed that they are putting screens in the back of our hoods to prevent things from getting sucked up. Items that have been sucked up by my hood, some weighing paper and some lab wipes. Maybe they have wreaked havoc with the ventilation system but I doubt it. So we have to empty out our hoods. This room is after their state mandated break and then we'll clean out the other while they're working in here. So lots of quality research is going on this morning.

Clemson soccer teams have been kicking ass recently. The Lady Tigers beat TN Tech 7-0 on Sunday and beat the UAB Lady Blazers 1-0 on Friday, both at home. The men's team beat the South Carolina Gamecocks 4-3 on the road Friday and then beat GA State here last night by a score of 8-1. Yikes. Those poor other teams.

Gotta clean/move stuff.
