Anyone still have a room available?

Hey folks,

I'm a Nic grad moving back to the area, and was wondering if anyone was still looking for a housemate.  

I'm scouting out for a room, preferably with my own bath.  Either in Durham or in RTP/Raleigh.  I'm also looking at single apts/houses, but just curious if people were still roomie-less and look at all options.

Gimme a shout at bjl8.

Thanks!

Ben

Hi everyone,

 I left my mechanical pencil in A247 today at around 1:00 pm. Its white and the brand is Pilot. I think it has the letters nextage on the clip. I know its kinda silly looking for a pencil but I brought it from Taiwan and I can't get a replacement here. So if anyone has found it please let me know.

 Thanks!

Is anyone going to the GSA Annual Meeting in October who might be interested in splitting costs for a hotel room?

 Let me know: Alicia - acb38


If anyone owns a pair of hefty cutters, we'd like to borrow it...  A bike lock has acted up and refused to unlock, and thus the last resort...

Please email Kelli Mineard at kam54 or Ben Landis at bjl8.  Thanks!

Bike Tour

If anyone's interested in riding from NC to NYC (or Philly) over Fall Break, hit me up.  I know people to crash with along the way, save central VA, so weight carried would be minimized.  Initial thought is bike one way, train back.  rock! bunny
