And I'm stuck at home drawing stupid otters, but I end up ripping every single one up because the proportions aren't right.

And as for that rumor, it doesn't really matter, Kealing earned the spot, and if they want to go to nationals, they should to. And regardless of how badly I want to go to nationals, it just wouldn't feel right if they gave up their spot for us. That's how I feel at least.

i can only think of 2 reasons they wouldn't go, money, which usually isn't a problem for them, or lots of conflicts on that date, which i also don't see being a problem

Kealing is going to nationals and sharing a bus with LASA (which significantly reduces the financial strain for both schools).

Yeah, the bus seats about 38, which means LASA will take 17 students on the bus and a couple of adults. I don't know how Kealing is doing seating. Some of our alternates will fly (the theory is that by having the team members on the bus together for 20 hours, they will be more likely to study together). Fitting all the equipment under the bus may be more challenging, though.

Hey! I was only drawing countless otters because I had nothing else to do! And I'm not taking just that picture seriously, I take all my drawings very seriously. And if you call me a killjoy, then take a look in the mirror. :P

And to drag this topic back on track, you can probably bring a U-Haul, if that helps with the storage/space problem.

This is again, OT but you know how the whole swine flu thing is going around?? well, someone at our school had a probable case of it and now Beckendorff is closed at least until may 11th. :D (No school)
So, i'm kind of glad now that we didn't make nationals because we would have totally bombed because we would have had very little practice. Plus, with this whole school closing, now we wouldn't be able to work on our events. Do you think they may cancel or postpone Nationals because of this????

i doubt it, i hope they don't close kingwood, i have AP tests next week, and i don't want to make up school in the summer because of a panic about something that really shouldn't be as blown out of proportion as it is

There's only about 100 confirmed cases of it, yet it's being called an epidemic. Two schools in my district were closed because kids were showing symptoms of it, not because they actually had it.

its pretty much become an extreme overreaction where they are trying to stop it before it starts, even though so far its no worse than the regular flu
