There's been record amounts of pollen this week. The sidewalk is totally yellow with the stuff. No wonder I've had sinus headaches. Yuck. This is the one thing I hate about spring. Pretty flowers bring on the allergies. My singing voice will go out the window.

I read through my dad's Phi Mu Alpha alumni magazine the other day. A member from Colorado State who graduated the same year I did was listed in the "Final Chord"- in other words, he had died. I should know who he was. I feel really bad.  ΦΜΑ and ΔΟ brothers/sisters at my school were really close. We had some good times. I wonder why I don't remember this guy?
