Today was mushroom day…

All hail the mighty Dining Hall, which hath the power to make our lives miserable in the temoral, transitory way of food.

Actually, it wasn’t that bad today; there were just mushrooms in everything. Mushrooms in the meatball sauce. Mushrooms in the terryaki chicken. Mushrooms in the vegetarian option and mushrooms in the pasta sauce. Somebody was trying to use up some mushrooms.

I don’t especially care for mushrooms. But I was amused, nonetheless.

Having a kitchen is nice.

Speaking of food, last night, Jen and I went out to dinner at Ruby Tuesday’s with our new roommates, which was a lot of fun! It brought to mind the first time I was there, which was shortly after one of the more spectacular CCLC floods of last year. Jen and I walked in one Saturday evening in the fall to find an inch or so of water on the floor – later discovered that a copper pipe had been insufficiently capped with a pvc piece by some idiot working on the library construction. We moved all the equipment to drier parts of the library with the help of two coworkers, and got taken out to lunch for our efforts. A bit awkward, but definately worth the free food.

I’d be a good Hobbit. I like fried mushrooms…
