Whenever I do my laundry it rains. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal but we don't have a washer/dryer in my house so I have to use the one in the basement of Campus Plaza. Not only is it inconvenient because it's far away, but not all the dryers are created equal so sometimes you have to run it twice, AND it doesn't take quarters it takes a card which you have to refill, using only $5s, $10s, or $20s. Really people? And, as I mentioned before, it always rains when I do my laundry, making it that much harder to get my clothes home all nice and dry. Sometimes I feel like the truck driver in So Long, And Thanks for All the Fish who hates rain and it rains on him wherever he goes. What he doesn't know is that he is a rain god and the clouds "loved him and wanted to be near him, to cherish him and to water him" (p. 10, 1984 Pocket Book edition).

Maybe my laundry is a rain god and if I washed my clothes more often Utah would no longer be a desert. Things to think about.

Cassi, I'm ashamed of you. You could turn this desert wasteland into a beautiful rain forest if you would only do your laundry more. Shame on you for not doing it more!

First, I hate Campus Plaza, in all of its incarnations. Top two: The Fat Clean-shaven Incarnation and The Laundry System Incarnation. Man, I hate those two.

Second, I kind of like Norse Mythology. Don't act so surprised. YOU'RE the one who started the Wikipedia chain that led me to this.
