My Favorite Orientation Event

You might be wondering what a freakingly awesome wax hand is doing on here. It is on here because it is MY wax hand. How cool is that?
There was this big party last Sunday night called the Coates Caper. The Coates Center is where the mail is, where the unhealthy food is, and where it is just generally cool. At the Coates Caper they had wax hands, cotton candy, nachos, and a BIG INSANELY AWESOME DANCY PARTY! :)
I had never had a wax hand made before. I thought maybe it was like a mold, you know like you do with plaster of paris. Nope. You stick your hand in hot wax 10x, and then they pull it off of you. And dye it. How cool is that? We had just been to a lecture on diversity, so my friends and I decided to get ours dyed half black and half white, to show just how diverse we are. Haha! And the 3 is for Winn 3rd. Which is our dorm. Get it? A 3 in sign language is a W, and then 3 is 3 ... no? Well, whatever. We got it. ;)
So yeah. There you have it. Wax hands, cotton candy, crazy dance party. I was going to write more, but tiredness just set in. Which is totally weird. Because I only had one class today, and I got something crazy like 10 hours of sleep last night. Whatever. I'm odd.
Anywho, I've got to read my Biology Syllabus, and do some laundry. The laundry part is pretty essential. I basically don't have any clothes right now.


  1. I like how the photos of your wax hand have your computer with Blogger up on it in the background. :D
    And yay! I'm glad you're having fun.

  2. Yeah ... those pictures totally weren't last minute. :D

  3. Sounds like you had a terrific time. I at first though wax hand that you would eat. That's a big load of wax. My mind is gone. Nice idea to mix the colors. You need the clothese that's for sure. I bet that's a tough thing to do for some. They're used to Mom doing the wash!

  4. Lucy - I did have a terrific time. :)
    Haha, don't worry, I do things like that all the time. And the laundry thing isn't too bad for me, I used to do the laundry at home. Except I feel oddly domestic when I fold clothes. :D
