The Panera Bread Conspiracy  
The town matters not. The time is of no concern. If a family member or I step into a Panera Bread, we will invariably find someone that we know. The other day I ran into not one, but two professors, both of whom know me well enough to recognize me and wave. I am starting to fear Panera Bread. Is there something in the soup??

The trip back to school with my father was relatively painless, aside from the complete lack of air-conditioning in the car and the sheer heat of the sun. I never thought a Kentland gas station could be such a wonderful place of refreshment, nor that I would ever anticipate being at such a place, counting down the distance with each milemarker.

The hot water here is turned off 'til some time on Friday (theoretically). If we wish to take a hot shower, there are posters telling us to call any of the listed four anonymous numbers of folks in another dorm. The other day, I made the rather inane mistake of attempting to reach one of these strangers in the morning, and (of course) reached no one. Determined to cleanse myself no matter the temperature of the water, I braved the dreaded "cold shower." It is fortunate that no one else was up at that hour.

I just bought a whole hugearse roll of chickenwire today. If papier-mache fails me, I'll go out into the countryside and wrap up some chickens.

Yeah, it's been much too warm the past few days. Central Illinois is the shittiest place for weather. It's unbearably hot and humid in the summers and it's freezing in the winter. The only time one can go outside in shorts and a t-shirt and be relatively comfortable is about 5 days in March and about 5 days in September, then it goes right back to dressing in specialized clothing or staying in buildings until it gets nice again for half a week.

I'm so sick of Panera... it's totally dominated the city I live in, and everyone eats there... not to mention my friend works there, loves it, and talks nonstop about it.

Re: yeah cars without ac are annoying
i guess it didn't matter as much when you were a kid and weren't trying to drive without dying of heat stroke. I am glad to be back in Central NY with my 60 degree days and my 40 degree nights. a bit chilly, but i'd much rather put on a sweatshirt than a blue sparkly bikini. Besides i already have enough sunburn for a season, even though it has barely started. So what are you papermacheing? it must be something big and fun. You will have to post pictures. good luck with the shower thing.
