I worked at three different places in three different cities that summer-- One of them was a tanning place.

I closed up one night and went to browse the magazines at the neighboring Farmer Jack. As I was reading, a guy in the same isle grabbed my attention by addressing me, and directing me to look in the general direction of the bakery. It appeared that the fryalator was engulfed in flames. I had noticed it before, but I guess I must've just mistaken it for an oven left on.

Well, I confirmed for him that it definitely wasn't supposed to be like that. I immediately ran into the bakery and tried to locate the Anselon system, in an attempt to quickly extinguish the fire (Anselon is a fire-suppression system using dry chemicals, rather than wet ones, so a unit like that which was on fire, wouldn't spill grease all over whomever was near). I was unsuccessful in finding any switches are levers to activate it.

I next ran to find the manager-on-duty, to alert him of the situation, and . . . Read More..

Several friends and I had a friend who was going to Amsterdam to visit some friends of his, whom he used to live near.

They loved Taco Bell faire, but Amsterdam did not have any Taco Bells, so he wanted to go steal some hot sauce, and purchase a little food before he was to leave, that next day.

We all decided to assist him. We took a break from our studying (we had lived in the dorms at that point, at OU), and went over there. We all went in, and one by one as he was ordering, we all took a handful of hot sauce. He grabbed a handful as well on his way out.

All told, we took a total of nearly 180 packets to give to his friend and his family.

The first time I ever changed my brake pads was at the Baldiga's house in their driveway. It seems like it was a cold fall afternoon. Chet basically did the job and showed me how while Joe SR came by and commented every once and a while. That was really cool that Chet was able to help me do that - I didn't know that he knew how to do that. I told him I would buy him a 12 pack of beer and I still have not done that. I remember my hands getting pretty cold changing the brakes. I was amazed at how easy and straight-forward it was and it encouraged me to learn how to do more things with my car. I figured that I should be able to do that if I call myself an engineer.

There's a place here called Port Arthur, which is like a little historic abandoned town, that is now a tourist destination because supposedly it is "haunted by ghosts". People come there for like a day trip, to walk around the town, all the houses and shops are open, but their like little museums...

Anyway. We were walking around the town, going from place to place, it was about 4PM, and we stopped into the Post Office. It was like a little house, with a couple of rooms downstairs, and an upstairs, but that area was cordoned off. So I walk into an office, which is just an empty room, with a desk and chair in a corner, and some old books on the walls.
Because by this time, I am so OVER walking around this town, I climb over the desk and sit in the chair, and wait for my family to get bored too so we can go.
I cant remember the specifics, but what I remember is feeling a hand grab me on my right shoulder. At first, I thought it was my brother playing a trick on me, but . . . Read More..

This is just one of many strange stories from my trip to Spain a few years ago. It was one of our (mine and Kate's) last nights in Valencia, and a group of our friends decided it would be cool to hang out on the beach all night. I think Kate and I had dinner at "home" and then we met up with everyone later at the Palau, where there was some kind of play or something going on.

We all walked to the beach, equipped with wine and speakers for Leslie's portable CD player (I remember a lot of Dave Matthews Band music that night). It was fun to talk to everyone, but the time kind of dragged on after a while as everyone started getting a little tired. To wake ourselves up, Kate, Ann and I went to a club that was a little ways down the beach. It was probably about 2 AM at that point, and we could barely even get through the door because it was so crowded (people just start going out around 1 AM and stay out until 5 or 6 AM). If it hadn't been soooo crowded, it would have been an . . . Read More..
