Filed under: My shit luck with all things
The ironically named Carnegie Hall. Until recently, the main party dorm on campus. Then they started enforcing alcohol consumption by minors laws, and took steps to revamp the dorm, and get rid of the stench of cigarettes, beer, vomit, and personal lubricant. New carpet, new tiles, and new car smell. But that was before the sprinkler flood. Now the carpet and tile is ripped up, and the fragrence of mold fills the air. Carnegie- Constantly Improving!
Here’s me and my friend Dave surveying the damage. This is shortly after part of the ceiling in our bathroom caved in on me, releasing a torrent of brown water. Water should never be brown. But dave found a cool box we used to ski down the stairs.
Here’s Will holding what used to be a nice shirt. There’s no telling whether or not the shirt looked that way before the flood, but hey- the insurance company will never know the difference.
Here’s Dave moving the essentials into our hotel room. Note the bamboo plant on top of the coke box. That’s what makes it feel like home.
This has nothing to do with anything. It just makes me laugh.
So now we’re moved into a hotel room at the Mainstay Suites in Alcoa, TN. Turns out Dave and I are two of only 15 people who won’t get to return to the dorms for a couple months. So we’ve already set up our respective offices, and made friends with the hotel maids, and the front desk clerk on every shift, so we’ll make it work for us. I regret that it was my calamitous luck that most likely brought this. Well that, and a stove fire in the room above ours. But I digress- This is how my life goes. I’ve gotten used to it. Keep reading this site, and maybe you’ll get used to it too. Then we are all lost.
