Adventure in the Dorms

Just in case you're wondering what this is a picture of, it's our bathroom. The light burned out. So, now every time we need to shower, or wash our face, or do whatever else, it's in complete darkness...almost. I have a flashlight, but the batteries are dying, so it's a little better, but still dark enough to bump into things. So far, none of us have bruises that are too bad; we'll see how that goes in the next couple days, or months, depending on when maintenance chooses to come. This whole dorm experience sure is an adventure, though. Someone definitely has a sense of humor in the way they choose to humble us: a tub with a clogged drain that filled drop by drop until it had 1 1/2 feet of water in it, a couple days where the water turned off without notice and the toilet flushed by itself (that one scared me), and now the broken light. Too bad it's fluorescent soffit lighting using a luminous panel (thank you Interior Design 102). If it was a regular light bulb we might have a chance, but I think some people have just too much fun answering phone calls from freshmen girls who have absolutely no light in their bathroom.

I laughed out loud. Your picture and descriptions are so funny.

Hi Katherine:

Call David Boekweg @ 422-3098. He may be able to help. I almost sent him an email referencing your blog but opted not to.

Thanks Dad. They actually fixed it yesterday and also replaced a metal towel rod that had falled off. Thank goodness this is one of the times they had a fast response.

I could tell from the oicture you weren't actually in the bathroom. Your effervescent personality would have lit up the room. I'm glaad they got the light fixed.
