First day of the spring semester. Hectic morning at Buen Dia, then running across town to school. Passed a new cafe on the way. (Mmm.) Get the car parked in the structure without too much hoopla. Running into classmates in the hallways, we detail winter breaks of yore. Spiraling lines in the bookstore. After class, a line just to get in to the bookstore. Uau. Let out of class early. Wouldn’t be the first day without an early release. A good day.

At the moment, my flatmates and I are discussing the morning shower schedule (pronounced shed-yool). Melissa thinks aloud, Am I getting in the shower at 6:45? I mean, I’ll get out of bed at 6:40 and then into the shower at 6:42. No, it’ll take you one minute to walk to the bathroom, Alejandra replies. At this point, Melissa’s knees buckle. She collapses on the floor in a paroxysm of laughter. Discourse about past shower habits ensues. Are we having this conversation, really?

So, I think I’m going to go take a shower now.

    Mr. planet are you referring to the Never Ending Story tune?

    Am touched with the spontaneous singing on this entry, really. (Chortle, chortle.)

    Never Ending Story?  What’s that?
    <grin>  The big flying dog was both cute and terrifying at the same time.  Anybody bother to see part 2?

    I think I may have seen a portion of it. Equally funky and scary-looking cast.The Never Ending Sto-o-o-o-o-o-ry …Sorry, it slipped out.
