Antioch 2009: Day 6

The thing that always sucks about going to Antioch is having to leave Antioch. But alas, sooner or later we all move on to that big co-op in the sky. Here, then is Antioch 2009: Day 6:


I bought new leg warmers in Yellow Springs. I have a dozen pair of leg warmers at home, but I hadn't brought any with me, and it was cold. And I like these. They're very Pippi Longstocking.




I was walking to brunch with Joni and she noticed a sculpture in the tree




Joni. Incidentally, since last week and being her roommate, I've had the song "Hey Joni" stuck in my head. Not a bad song to have stuck in my head, either.

demonfire and Kelly


Shari. I ran into her in town. She lived on my hall back in 1991 or thereabouts. I didn't recognize her at first, but she knew exactly who I was (and once I thought about it for a few minutes, I totally remembered who she was).


Ha Ha's

Dayton Street

Clintonville Community Market














I really liked how prominent their "Local Product" signs were


I always have to check out the bulk herbs and spices. They had a pretty impressive collection.






Most of their herbs are Mountain Rose Herbs, which is a brand I wasn't previously familiar with.




The bulletin board








My new favorite T-shirt (and user icon)





And that is it.

WHERE?!! Did you get that shirt (at the end). That is _amazing_. Also I like how everyone's eyes are closed in the first picture of me. Yeah...I was sleepy. Antioch wears everyone out, right?

I'm going to have to get out there sometime. Looking at you guys makes me homesick. Probably not go with hubby however, as he has had annoying and elitist experiences with Antioch Alums... "Oh... well at least you MARRIED an Antiochian...." or sort of dismissive energy when he mentions he went to UNI.... that kind of thing.

He went to one of the University campuses? Which one?

If nothing else, he should understand that at the moment, College vs. University tensions are higher than normal. That's my theory, anyway.

Hrm. You should talk to Colin and/or Ozz. They both brought non-Antiochian spouses with them. I think we were all friendly, but I always wonder what the experience is like for spouses and partners.

As an aside, Elin and Trudi? They come to work project every year and are awesome. Well, one of them went to Antioch and the other one is just her partner. At one point I knew which was which (I think Trudi is the alum?), but I'm no longer completely sure.


ETA:
No, now I think Elin is the alum. This is based solely on the picture above and seeing that it doesn't look like Trudi's nametag has a year written on it.

Completely unrelated
I know you're not into Orthodox Judaism or anything, but this was a somewhat fascinating news article and I don't know who else to share it with. It's in regards to Shabbos elevators. No pressure to read/respond to it, but it's funny because apparently even Orthodox Jews aren't sure about their rules.
