Oh what the hell?!
Don’t worry. It’s only the UCB Four who still use AOL.

I interned at the front desk every Saturday-day for a year. One of my duties involved lugging the piano keyboard across the lobby to set up for musical improv. I hated it. I tried to do it when there was no one around because dragging this big case looked and felt ridiculous. Also the musical improv students were loud and kind of full of themselves. I did not want to help them.
One Saturday, as I was lugging the piano across the lobby, I heard someone say - in a voice that was equal parts superior and disinterested - “There are wheels on the other side.”
I looked up. It was one of the musical improv students. In my memory, he’s sitting cross legged and reading a comic book. He doesn’t even deign to look up. I didn’t even know his name but I think I remember telling someone he’s my nemesis.
A year later we were dating. This February was our five year anniversary.
But, seriously, there were wheels on the thing.

anyone else noticing a trend here?
Ooof. Oh, Ridley.
Not really related: Just the other day I was thinking “Why do I hold Ridley Scott in high regard?” Yes, he has two movies that I absolutely love (Alien and Blade Runner) and a few that I do like but are pretty problematic (Thelma & Louise and Black Hawk Down) and few that I enjoyed but w0uld not call great by an means (G.I. Jane and Gladiator). I suppose it is that those first two films were formative to me. Sigh.
Do you realize, like, some the best things that have ever come out of my mouth were written by the people that wrote that show? — Seth Green [x]
Spent the day working at the old UCB Training Center. Don’t have anymore shifts here before it closes. Took my first class here in 2007.
So long, space. Your wifi sucked but I liked you.
I was there for probably the last time on Saturday. Coached some improv in Room 1. Big holes in the wall. I reflected back when TYR practiced there (every Sunday, noon to 3pm, for a really long time). And the day we knocked a hole in the wall and Gabrus, who was coaching us that day, said, “Don’t worry about it. They’ll just blame in on me.”
Before I left on Saturday, I though about breaking off a chunk of drywall from the whole and taking it with me. Then I realized I would have to find a place to keep a chunk of drywall.
Watching this now. I am not sure I have any idea what is happening any more.
