So, listening to my labor songs, I hopped the bus to campus to go to the Banned Book Week banned book reading slam. It was a lot of fun. I got to read all of Heather has Two Mommies, which is 11 on the top 100 most challenged books from 1990-2000 :). I really had fun reading it out loud. I read it just like I would have to young children, and gathered a small crowed. Someone actually had the gaul to interrupt me mid-book and ask why it was banned/challenged. Hello, have some respect! But it was good that he was curious.
Now I'm back home, and doing a "handwashing" load in my washer. It's the first time i've used this setting/washed some of these clothes in a washer, so I'm a little nervous about how well it will work...but we'll see.
Time to learn more about XML, fun fun!
Edit: Just hung up the handwashing over the second bathtub. The clothes themselves look pretty good. The water was spun out of them enough that they weren't dripping, but they were still wet. They were a little warmer to the touch than I would have liked, but that's probably because the cold water down here isn't as cold as it is up north.
