a somewhat eventful afternoon
So, I have just arrived at the Cornell University Pot Shop this afternoon and I am fiddling with the radio, which will ONLY play 'songs of inspiration and hope from the family blahblah network', ahem, and huge alarms go off in the ancient stone building which houses the Pot Shop and I am like 'OH MY GOD ITS MY FAULT FOR FIDDLING WITH THIS POSSESSED RADIO' I really did. It is a most pleasant day, but 3 fire trucks arrive and serious looking dudes hop out, dress up in the gear with the oxygen and the pickaxes and run in. 3 minutes later the guys walk out. The driver of the 2nd truck sez 'HEY GARY!!!!' and it is my rather awesome buddy Trevor who lives across the street from us. He let me take this pic, after he said he was IMPOSSIBLY HOT (I bet). he said that although the students are gone, the dining room kitchen ovens were on, but there was no food in there, and so a heat sensor blew. Ahem, let's be careful folks, and save some energy bills too? (the heat was blasting inside the studio too, although a very warm day outside).
So I made these cute little pots.
