Ann Arbor ingenuity

I rent a room in the partially
unfinished basement of an old Ann
Arbor house. Usually, I'm the girl
who can always stand the cold, the
last to reach for the blankets, but
the past month has been an excep-
tion.
I've put five blankets on my bed
and wear about 4 layers of clothes
and a hat to sleep. I took the space
heater with a built-in thermometer
out of our bathroom last week and
stuck it in my room just to see how
cold it was. The thermometer read
50 degrees. A few single-digit-high-
temperature days later, I experi-
enced my first night of restless sleep
due to the sheer nose-numbing frig-
idness of my room.
Completely frustrated, I decid-
ed to fulfill every 7-year-old's
dream: to live in a tent made from
bedsheets. I nailed five different
sheets around my bed and one on
top, almost completely sealing it
off from the rest of the room.

When this turned out not to
be enough to keep me warm, I
borrowed a camping tent from a
housemate, put it together in my
room and somehow fit my twin
bed and a space heater inside.
Now my room is a balmy 68
degrees, albeit a little dimly lit. At
least now I can do my homework
without wearing mittens.
ANGELA CESERE
In ladies room,
third time would
have been charm
Last week, I came out of a stall in
the first floor Angell Hall bathroom
and approached the sink. Isqueezed
some soap, got it into a good lather,
and that's when it happened.
I saw a girl heading out of the
ladies room with her skirt tucked
into her nylons. I was momentarily

frozen by the sight of the random
ass but was finally able to yell "Hey
you!" just as she approached the exit
door.
Unfortunately for her, she was
wearing headphones. They were
apparently cranked up to maximum
volume, because I yelled again,
louder this time, but to no avail. She
meandered right out the door.
I was pretty worked up at this
point. I yanked hard at a paper tow-
elette. I prepared to leave but was
halted by the sight of yet another
ass.
This girl was moving out of the
bathroom at top speed and also had
her skirt tucked in to expose her
rear.
Discouraged from mylast attempt
and slightly stunned, I didn't even
bother to call to her.
I let her go.
I would have gotten the third
one. Really.
