killer bees Aug. 4th, 2008 @ 10:00 pm
On my bicycle ride today I was attacked by two killer bees. I was riding in Calimesa, I had stopped to lift my bike down the trail, and then they came. Two small bees swarmed at me, and did NOT give up until they had stung me. I have never had a bee attack me like that. . .at first I wasn't too concerned because they where small bees, I didn't even think it was a bee, until it was digging into my hair, and it was not afraid of anything.

I read that over 50% of the bees in southern california and inland empire are killer bees. Wow. . watch out for them. It only took two of them to freak me out. They truly are suicidal, they will not go away no matter how much you whack at them. I ran like 400 feet away from where I first ran into them, looking like a spasoid whacko on speed. I was waving my arms to get the freaking thing off me.

And they are smaller so they are hard to whack, they just land on your head and start looking for a place to sting. Fucking egg. . .I left a message with vector control, just to let them know. But since they are everywhere, not sure they are surprised. Maybe they keep statistics on how bad they are in different locations.

Difference between a killer bee and regular bee is pretty small.

RIP Lindon Barrett Jul. 30th, 2008 @ 12:06 am
We've lost a dear friend and professor in Lindon Barrett.

Those of us that have been lucky to have had him as a professor at UCI, UCR and elsewhere will sincerely miss him.

We will mostly miss his shocking statements, brisk intelligence, irrefutable academic truth, and his witty ways in class.

Date of Birth October 10, 1961
Date of Passing: July 7, 2008

He was a really good teacher and had the potential for change in the university. I created a community to remember him that will keep updates on the development of his death.


The community has little to no info at this time, but I will be fixing up the community soon.

Softball? Jul. 16th, 2008 @ 12:31 am
So, I'm down here for all of the month of July for a program at UCX. I was wondering if anyone knows of any co-ed slow pitch softball leagues around that may be in need of a girl to come play for this month. My school schedule is kind of weird, but I'm willing to see if there's anything I can make, even if it's just a game or two. I play at home (Santa Cruz) but obviously can't commute to games.. Or if anyone knows who it is that plays over at the field(s) on Canyon Crest and Blaine, even for fun, I'd like to get in on that!

Thanks a lot!

Anyone looking for a roommate? Jun. 29th, 2008 @ 06:53 pm
Hey all,

I'm a transfer student who'll be going to UCR in the fall. Is anyone around here looking for a roommate? Since I'm jumping into things rather late into the game I'd rather not get a studio apartment by myself if I can help it.

I've been looking at craigslist but it's kinda difficult to find a place since I won't have a car and I don't really have a clue what is and what isn't within walking distance of the main campus.

Any help/advice/musings would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

P.S. I'm also super not picky about roommates; I've had all sorts thus far and as long as I've got my own room I'm a happy camper.

Apartment: Take two Jun. 1st, 2008 @ 03:43 pm
Basically, I am looking for anyone interested in taking over my lease until it is up next June. I am hoping to move at any point possible (due to my career). I live in building A, second floor at GrandMarc across from the UV and the rent is $674/mo and comes with the big bathroom in the unit. Willing to rent it out as early as July and as late as Fall.

If you are interested, let me know! ascho003@student.ucr.edu

Somewhere to live in July! May. 31st, 2008 @ 07:42 pm
Wow it's been a while since I've posted here.. anwyay. I used to go to UCR (for 2 quarters, then ran outta moneys) but I'm going to be back for the month of July for a program at UCR extension, and I need somewhere to stay!

Does anyone know of or have a room I can rent for the month of July only?

I'm willing to compensate up to ~$500, but it's negotiable. I'm pretty quiet and keep to myself, but I do enjoy being social..I can provide video games during my stay =). And I'm nice, I promise!

Any info would be awesome! Thanks!
