Ash Wednesday was fairly nice, all things considered. Kevin was at Mass in the morning, and we carried up the gifts together. What a lucky girl I am to see him nearly every day! Fr. Fisher was giving out ashes during Mass, and believe me he gives out ashes. You walked away fishing for a handkerchief to wipe the ash from your nose and brushing ash off your shirt. Seeing as I went to Fr. Fisher for my ashes, I walked out of there with quite a cross on my forehead which I can proudly say lasted all day long.
What else happened today? Not much. The one other exciting (and bothersome) thing had to do with a certain trash truck outside Maloney Hall. Every Wednesday during Chemistry class the trash truck comes and uses one of those big machines to lift the huge dumpster outside into the back of the truck. Well, today the machine missed the truck and dumped the whole load into the parking lot behind Maloney. That wouldn't be so bad, except that the dumpster (the size of a dorm room, I might add) was full of glass test tubes. The parking lot was filled with shattered glass. What a mess!
Fr. Shanley had the flu, so Dr. McKay filled in for him. She is the only substitute teacher that I can stand. I don't mind doing a lot of talking in her classes!
