What an interesting day.

Worthy of a new entry as the one below is getting a bit crowed with replies.

Anyhow, in order of what happened today…

I got a phone call from M. Menser just after I woke up this morning. M. Menser is the writer I responded too in the entry below. (Also, M. Menser is woman, as I found out when I answered the phone). Anyhow, she was calling to verify that I was indeed the person who sent in the Letter to the Editor, as they are required to do so she said. The conversation was very short, and that was about it. I’m not sure if it was so short because my response was specifically to her, or that this was how they normally were time wise, or if they only do this to Letters they want to publish. I don’t know.

I go to class.
Guess what I find? The chalk wielding Bible quoting religious fanatics have struck again! (Sorry, just had to word it that way in mock of what was said last week in the paper, and it’s funny to me at least – and to everybody that reads this I hope, rolls off the tongue nicely too – say it out loud).
Right in front of Ottensmen Hall (Otts), the Engineering building on campus, was a gigantic Bible quote written down.
“So even though I wrote to you, it was not on account of the one who did the wrong or of the injured party, but rather that before God you could see for yourselves how devoted to us you are.” 2 Corinthians 7:12 (NIV) I’m not exactly sure what Bible the writer or writers used, but I know the exact text they wrote was different from this one.
Of course, they wrote – in even bigger yellow chalk – “Are you Glowing?” again.

While I’m not sure of the message these people are trying to convey, but it does seem to be one of [good] works. As to how they perceive how works are supposed to be done and what their worth is to God I can not say and I will not assume.


I received my Facilities Design project today; I’m with a group or 4 others that will be redesigning the layout of a production floor of a company near Madison. This company deals with both metals and plastic production (another group is designing a new building for the plastics production, and then our team will ‘acquire’ the space freed up by that move)
Should be interesting, both of our groups (Metals and Plastics) will be taking a trip to the plant next Tuesday.


Tomorrow the fun starts in the Industrial Engineering recruiting program I’m on. I will personally be speaking to about 350 students tomorrow in my presentation with the help of another IE student (the friend that was going to be helping me is going to be about 3 hours away at her second interview, good luck!). Should be an interesting day as well!
