Bomb Threats/Etc.

To make my day fabulous, on top of the flu and not getting a necessary nap this morning, we had a bomb threat dead in the middle of my lab midterm. Evacuated the whole school and gave us the news: we might be out for two hours.

Rather than saying, "Well, guess we'll reschedule the test," my A&P and lab profs got together and said, "Technically, we have them all until 2:30pm, so we'll just make them stick around until the midterms are done." I had totally wanted to leave right after the test so I could get to bed. 

I spent an hour sitting in the lobby of Christ Hospital while they went over the entire school. 

These are my two twitpics from the debaucle:

Anyways, an hour later they called everyone back, and I got my test done despite the first alarm going off like three more times -- NO WORRIES! JUST RESETTING IT! -- and left without a single explosion.

Which, I think, always makes for a most excellent day.

In all reality, I thought it was going to be kinda fun, livetweeting real news. Sadly, it was just a bomb threat and the place was clear... the bomb squad wasn't even called in. @Local12 picked it up for a moment on Twitter, and @WLWT responded to it, but, again, nothing fun to report today :-).

On a side note, did you realize you have to link back to Twitpic if you use a picture that you uploaded to that website? Yea. Neither did I. Here's the statement:
Remember! Twitpic Community Guidelines specify that if you post a Twitpic photo on an external website, the photo must link back to its photo page.
Hrm. Google, what?
