The day room takes it to the next level

BBQ outside Starbucks

When you show up at a Starbucks in Orange County, and Mike of the gray ponytail and the long drug history, who lives in his van, is there with his free ‘n’ easy girlfriend of a certain age that he met at the San Diego Thunderdome Sex In The Bushes Swap Meet, and everyone is high on good weed, and Mike is grilling, and someone has brought lemon meringue pie, and the stoner gamer kid is playing the GTA:Vice City music really loud on the usb mic from his laptop, and Bob is there in his union suit arriving via tandem bike, and the people driving by are smelling the grill and seeing the freaks and nearly crashing with surprise, and no cops show up and the people at the mall couldn’t care less, and then there’s apple pie too…

Then it’s another night on the corner.

And this just in from the Messed-Up Dead Things Desk

mendel : This is neat but morbid:

mendel : There is a cemetery in WA which has a bell: http://flickr.com/photos/travels_of_a_taphophile/494278720/in/photostream/

mendel : Inside the bell this person found a jar: http://flickr.com/photos/travels_of_a_taphophile/494279440/in/photostream/

mendel : Which was stuck on with magnets and uhm well http://flickr.com/photos/travels_of_a_taphophile/494279180/in/photostream/

(I also hope that every time they get a "customer" at the cemetery they ring the bell, like when they make a sale at a car dealership. –Ed.)

Just sent. What might happen, I don’t know.

Hello:

I was a student at UCLA from 1983 to 1987. In 1987 I was dismissed for poor academic performance, which was sadly an accurate assessment.

I am close (I do not know how close) to a degree in English, and I am interested in readmission and in completing my Bachelor’s degree.

According to http://www.registrar.ucla.edu/faq/readmissionfaq.htm there is an application. I have no other transcripts since 1987, so that won’t be an issue.

What should I expect from the procedure, and what other information should I gather? I’m very interested in this but also a bit intimidated.

Thanks in advance,

substitute
