A few cool pics from last week

I waffled all week long between taking pictures or not. I was alone most of the time so I would've ended up with a bunch of pictures with no one in them that I know. The older I get the more I want a blend of pics with people and of 'stuff' so for the most part, I didn't take many pictures last week. HOWEVER, I did take a few.

I had a favorite place to hang out. It was the South Lounge in the Union on the third floor. I don't think I even need to explain why I love this. I bet you can tell from the photos.

Another thing I thought was cute was the old fashioned phone booths which no longer have phones in there but people with mobiles are encouraged to go here to talk. The doors close and a light comes on and so does a little fan which helps muffle sound for those "private conversations" as well as generating cool air. The funny thing is, though, these are located in a section of the building with the worse mobile service on campus!

Finally, and this has nothing to do with the actual university where I was but the following pictures are from a restaurant in town. It's a local place called the Runcible Spoon which is located in an old house where all the rooms have been renovated into little dining rooms. First I had wonderful food (a fabulous Ruben and grilled veggies!) and wonderful company, with Photographer.

The coolest thing about this place is the bathroom. Yes, the bathroom. It's been featured on the Travel Channel, all because of the bathroom! It's a traditional old fashioned bathroom, like you'd find in a house, with a toilet, a sink, and a claw footed bathtub.

Now how cool is all that?

Uhhhhh, what the heck is in that tub?? It looks like a swamp!!! I think I would run out screaming into the night! I guess I'm missing something!

Curley- thanks!

Mellodee and all: the tub is an aquarium; see the goldfish? Daddy-O said the same thing you did when he saw it. It is actually a working fishtank. It's also very clean though, I guess, the picture doesn't do it justice. It's pretty cool in person, I swear!

The tub freaked me out a little too.

But the "phone" booths - what a clever idea! I wish we could put an entire aisle of them in Wal-Mart. And the doctor's office. And every restaurant.
