|Breaking in to the Caste

Castle in the Clouds
|||||I fell asleep listening to Chopin on vinyl||]|
The other day, I left my keys at the castle, and the only replacement key was the one for the front door and not the middle door. I really needed to practice (my cello was locked in). Luckily as I was using a payphone outside (trying to reach someone with key)Carter Hays found me.
Since we couldnt get ahold of anyone, we decided to break in. There is a square in the door that was already hollow. It was big enough to stick your hand through, but not big enough to reach the lock on the other side.
We knawed at the door for one hour straight and finally made it through. It looks like it was attacked by a bear. The door still works. We gave up once along the way, and tried phoning more people who may be nice enough to come all the way down town to let us in. Nn responce. At the time, breaking in seemed to be a ridiculous thing to do, but we were determined. There are lots of tools on the second floor, which helped the process.
We ended up putting a bulliten board up to cover the damage. John Collins and AC Newman said it now looks like a community centre.
It sucks being locked out. But it feels amasing once after an hour of hard door breaking labour, you reach your goal.
On another note... we are considering changing the name to the Egg Factory (Meridas idea), but everyone stil calls it the Meatball.
