No, I made it. This happened on the way home. The friend who fixed it was Bro. Hall, the "advisor" of our FHE group.

Sweet. So you didn't miss out after all. :)

I can't remember where, but there was an article that was all boasting, "Marriage makes depressed people happier!"  and all I could think was, "and it makes their spouses more miserable!"  And sure enough, that was part of the research as well.   I could have told them THAT.

You say: "Hey Zak, how're things?"

I respond: "Oh, besides working 45 hours in three days, pretty freaking crappy. How're you?"

You kick the dirt.

I jump into the air and roundhouse kick a dog to the face.

You are stunned and explode.

Aaaargh! The Hum Pub is GONE. It's been demolished to make way for . . . landscaping.

WHAT? Yikes! It was rather old and inefficient, though.

Awww. Another monument of our youth has fallen! Well, let's hope that Mel and the gang will get a spiffy new building.

It's gone? I had no idea. I'm kind of sad. I have a lot of good memories of the HumPub. Maybe not so much of the building itself, but of all that happened in it.

That is sad.

My other reason for being grumpy: It's 7:45 on a Friday night and all I can think about is when is it late enough to allow myself to go to sleep so I don't upset my sleeping schedule. I'd like to go to bed now, but I'd probably wake up at 4 in the morning, and I don't want that.

I'm turning into an old woman. And I'm only 25. *sigh*

Heh. I've been drifting off to sleep on the couch for the last two hours for the same reason, Chimera. I should be getting my Sunday School and RS lessons planned for Sunday so I can go out tomorrow night, but instead I'm alternately watching bits of TV (usually about 10 min. at a time before I get bored) and daydreaming/dozing.

Can I help it if I've got more interesting things going on in real life than on TV? Even Avatar can't compare. That's saying a lot. :)

Where does TLE meet now? The HumPub was great because it didn't have that institutional feeling, y'know?
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

They're meeting in the Knight Magnum Building for now. But still, it was so sudden. And now I have a useless key on my keychain.

Wow, that is sad. I spent a lot of time at the Hum Pub. I knew it was going to get torn down, but I always had this secret hope that it'd hang around somehow.

Well, I suppose we *could* look at it this way: at least no one ever had to clean the microwave! Not that anyone ever cleaned it before. blech. That thing was... ookey.

I cleaned that microwave once. Not very thoroughly, mind you. I figured it was someone's science experiment. I just had to make a spot for my food.
