Poem for Friday and Indiana University

Paul worked from home on Thursday so that in the early afternoon we could all take a ride over to the University of Maryland to leave a deposit on Daniel's off-campus apartment for the fall. Adam drove quite well on the Beltway in drizzle on the twisty part around the Mormon Temple. The complex where Daniel will be living is owned by the university, so it has very good security and is in the campus shuttle bus loop that also goes to the Metro, and it has a swimming pool, game room, fitness center, sand volleyball court, computer lab, and grills and picnic tables, plus the suites have full kitchens with dishwashers and washing machines. Not a bad life!

Our other expedition was to the pet store to keep our mewling family members from starving and to the food store to get stuff to take to the beach, though we realized we're going to need to go back for more stuff. It was a five-bunny day (possibly six, though I think one crossed the street to munch with his friend so I saw him in two different places). Adam went out with friends to see Pacific Rim. The rest of us were going to have cornmeal pancakes for Lughnasadh dinner, but we didn't have cornmeal, so we had regular pancakes and eggs; then we watched some DS9, some Orioles not sucking for a change, and some Comedy Central. Here are some photos from Indiana University:
