Broken Pickups and Classes

Wednesday on the way home from class I noticed an unoccupied pickup in the intersection of Hoover and 31st St. It’s front left suspension broke, apparently while making a left turn onto NB Hoover. Sheesh. I helped out with “traffic control,” if you can call it that, for 10 mins. or so until a flatbed arrived to haul the sorry pickup away. I can’t imagine my car getting to such a state where the suspension simply breaks. But I guess it happens…. because, well, it did.

In other news, Thursday’s classes look great. Doe Mayer teaches CTPR 531 Thurs 9-12 and it’s going to be an awesome albeit hard working experince. And Jack Epps Jr., the writer of Top Gun (among others) teaches Advanced Playscript Analysys. He seems easygoing and he’s entertaining and articulate. The work load doesn’t seem that intense (to balance out the 531/Prepping the Doc class). In the end I think this will be a good semester. It certainly seems that way in the beginning.

On the other hand, I’ll need a chainsaw to hack my way through all the red tape for registering for 581B. Oy. Same possibly goes for CTPR 554, Advanced Sound with Tom Holman and Chris Jenkins.
