"Where hearts turn to ash, and others to dust" [Apr. 5th, 2004|05:16 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

I just can't get enough of this song by Flux AD. I think that Industrial Theme Park (that's the name of the electronica group that Tanny and I have somehow been assimilated into) are going to cover it, too. Woo!

So, today, while I was taking a shower here in my dorm, a draft blew through my room from the open window and blew the slightly-open door shut. The locked slightly-open door. I do not take my keys with me to the shower.

Thankfully, one of my friends saved the day by crawling out the bathroom window onto the loggia, crawling through my window, and letting me in from the inside. But her swift and brave action kind of drove home the point that my habit of locking my door as a security measure is pointless if my window's still open. Also, I sure felt stupid standing outside my room in a towel.

Locking your door as a security measure is also pointless is you leave your door slightly open. =p

Yeah, yeah. But I was only going to be in the shower for 15 minutes. (Well, okay, 30 minutes.) If I leave my door always locked, it makes the door a lot more likely to be locked when I'm not there, which is often. If I were to unlock the door for the time I was going to be in the shower, I would have only had to lock it again for when I left with my keys. Does that make sense? (Say yes because I'm rapidly losing interest in explaining it again.)

It does make sense.

And you could further foolproof the system by taking your keys with you to the shower.

After getting locked out of my room in a towel several times because my roomie left and locked the door while I was in the shower, we have instituted an unlocked-door policy. Room 25 stays unlocked all the time now, except Amy has started locking it when she goes to bed at night, presumably because she is scared of rapists wandering the halls while we sleep.

Amy is also dreading my leaving her alone for a couple weeks to take care of meterbridge's cat. WTF? A dingle is a dingle! I'd be thrilled with it, but Amy is convinced that she needs to surround herself with other people, preferably me, at all times. I don't get it.

I tell ya, lindseykuper. I always used to be hurt whenever you wanted to be alone. Now I know how you felt. I really need my space.

It may come to that.

Well, then I'm glad you're taking two weeks to go take care of (Maxx? Cleo? Both?). Be sure to give lots of love to him/her/them.
