Little Folk was fun. I mostly hung out in camp with my campmate Liz. We had a great time doing plenty of nothing.

We did have a a bit of excitement Sunday afternoon. I saw water running through our camp. When I traced it, I found that it was coming out of a pipe in the new bathrooms just uphill from our campfire ring. This concerned me, so I pointed it out to my campmate Jack who is on Maintenance and he determined that it was raw sewage. He got on the radio instantly and got a repair crew right away. In the meantime I moved my and Liz's trucks and our stuff away from the area of the spill.

That night we went to bed thinking all was well. But when Liz woke up the next morning, more sewage was flowing. So she jumped out of bed and, in spite of the fact that the festival was over, found someone woth a radio and summoned help. Maintenance claims that they will have this fixed by the spring, but I plan to put a berm up to protect my camp. If this happened during Big Folk, it wouldn't be a stream of sewage, it would be a deluge.

Monday we packed up slowly and then drove to the apple store in Medina to eat some delicious apple ice cream and buy a second Big Tooth Maple tree for the land.

Then, after an easy drive home, we stopped for dinner at the Thai Noodle House on Guadalupe and then went home to bed.

Ew ew ew! I was at Lowe's with Lydia yesterday and we kept finding products that no one in 'dozo family would ever buy because they were either stupid or unsafe. Pumping sewage into the campsites is also something we would not do. But the 'dozo part is noticing and figuring out the source before you all got typhoid or something. Yay you! FYI: Since I studied wastewater treatment I can also say with some confidence that cooked sewage is even ickier than raw.)

I want to try apple ice cream. It sounds so delicious!

Sometime let's do a road trip to Medina. It's really pretty out there.

It must be a sign of the times that I read this post and thought, "hmm the Apple Store! I wonder if she got an iPod!" Sad, sad, sad. *shakes head in technological shame*

That's the difference between "the apple store" and "the Apple Store."

FWIW, I did choose the free iPod Touch option. G is getting the new one and I will get his old iPod Touch as a hand-me-down.

On a different...note...have you ever considered auditioning to work for Universal Studios (the theme park) in L.A.? G and I went there this summer and when they had song and dance folks, I would think of you. It might be a fun way for you to earn money over summer vacation. I understand the competition is tough to get in, but WTF, if you're interested, why not give it a try.

I've actually tried auditioning for one theme park before- I didn't make it, but I would consider it again, and the park I auditioned for was like a small midwestern one-I wasn't really what they were looking for. Working at a place like Universal would be AMAZING...I'll have to look into more information about their auditions!
