You'll Fit Right In...

The title is a reference to one of the funniest cross cultural comedies one will ever see. I speak, of course, of The Great Muppet Caper. Upon arrival in Great Britain, ("Now we'll never get to England" - Fozzie), they are recommended a cheap place to park their carcass, The Happiness Hotel. It is here, that they sing a song in grand, Jim Henson style. The chorus goes like

Welcome home (Welcome Home!)
Welcome home (Welcome Home!)
No matter where you wander
You will never do so well.

Today was move in day here at Boyce. Now that I am a "Resident Leader" it was part of my responsibility to help. I never thought that moving in about 15 guys could be so stressful and tiring. I went back to my room, and just laid on my bed. My mistake was when I rolled over, and cradled my head in my arms. I was out baby. Out. Slept from about 4 to 6:29. And I was supposed to be at the pizza thing for the newbies. Supposed to. Don't worry about me though. I still got free pizza afterwards.

Back to the Muppets. There's this part where you see the first movie appearance of Rizzo the Rat, along with his rat cohorts. Dressed in their bellhop uniforms, they have the priceless line: And if you don't mind friendly animals and can learn to stand the smell, you'll fit right in, at Happiness Hotel! I don't know that I can think of any truer words then these outside of Scripture to start off a new student at Boyce.

In closing, shout outs and much love to Scott O'Neal, Melissa Kotch, Kristie Miller, Ruth Anne Hahn, and Emily Cavanaugh for giving me their two cents on finding a watch, especially to Melissa for doing much of the work. Furthermore, an abundance of thanks to Emily, for driving back to Target thirty minutes later, so I could exchange the watch for one that works.
