spooky ass



Not Spike the kitteh, down below.
I teach class at Cornell University Tuesday afternoon and I keep thinking I will get the students to take pics of me teaching. HA! I am too busy yakking.
But I did get pics of myself walking by Llenroc, founder Ezra Cornell's house on campus, now a frat. In a town and university with a lot of nice buildings, maybe this is the prettiest. I had to return to my car past the house after dark. Spooky ass gothic at night, next to this cemetery, and there was a nearly full moon coming up......

Whats a frat?
Are you still having snow? What is normal for you this time of year?

frat = fraternity, a university residence where a bunch of bad and spoiled boys live together in genteel squalor while partying and readying themselves for a life of investment banking and golf :) and sure as heck, we got tons of snow, although warm weather expected soon!

That is a great scary building picture. I love the texture. Have you considered a 2nd or 3rd career as a photographer?

Yep right on with the Frat description!
Years ago my BF lived in a 3rd floor apt. with her parents- next to a FRAT house.
We leaned out the window one night and rolled the roof and chimney with toilet paper- the next day the bright guys stood and looked and scratched their heads- I don't know how they did that- we rolled with laughter.
We also learned a LOT by cutting out the lights to watch them "study."
Great pictures!

Wow that building and cemetery look amazing. So much atmosphere! Just the type of place I'd like to live near... so I could walk by every day!
