Spring break solutions
those with too
By Alex Taylor
Take a road-trip. There are
plenty of places to drive to in
Texas. Don't just limit yourself to
Austin, San Antonio or (God for-
bid) Galveston. Visit http://www.
traveltex.com, the official tourism
Web site of Texas, to find a wide
variety of tools to help you plan
your next trip.
The site lists almost every city
in the state, along with informa-
tion about places to see, eat and
stay. You can also find a list of all
events taking place in a certain
location, and check the weather
before you go. One of the smarter
aspects of traveltex.com is the
ability to plan a trip around a
certain area of interest such as
beaches, food, shopping, golfing
or even bird watching (for those
Get healthy. Sure you'll probably
spend most of spring break imbib-
ing as many toxic substances into
your poor body as possible, but
how about a neat lesson in change
with an attempt to exercise and
Getting in shape, or at least mov-
ing away from impending cardio-
vascular collapse, doesn't require
spending four-hour sessions in a
stank-ass gym. Why not ride a
bike, go for a walk, swim or even
take-up yoga or martial arts? If it's
been a while since your last "iron-
pumping" session, start easy and
work up. Stairs came before esca-
lators, legs before cars - I'll let you
figure out the rest by yourself.
Take up a hobby. A "hobby"
doesn't always have to consist of
basket weaving or stamp collect-
ing. Take painting, gardening,
cooking, fighting and sleeping; do
any of these things often enough
and they count as a hobby.
Why not build robots, run for
political office, attend as many po-
lice impound auctions as possible,
prank call your boss or skydive out
of a corn duster? Anything goes
when you have a week of spare
time to burn and the vibrant imag-
ination of a college student. Also
try Hobby Lobby; I think they spe-
cialize in this kind of thing.
Drink heavily. Enough said.
Go Bowling. This covers the
drinking and exercise categories
simultaneously. Cheap bowling
can be found at the Brunswick
Zone, located next to Golden Tri-
angle Mall, where you can bowl
for $1 a game Tuesday through
Thursday nights. Shoes and beer
are also a buck each. Fun and
chain-smoking fat people includ-
ed free of charge.
Clean up. Start with your room

any clothes, bills, books, compact
discs, roommates or significant
others that you haven't needed in
the past six months.
Personal hygiene over spring
break will be an issue for some of
you, so the time off will provide a
much-needed opportunity to clean
up and organize your surroundings
too. File your taxes if you haven't
already done so. The faster they're
in, the faster you get to blow that
refund check. And check your
pantry/fridge for dead animals and
Have a barbeque or picnic.
Spring break offers the perfect
time to roast a huge slab of ar-

blazing coals. Invite your friends
and get them to each bring a dish
of their choosing to throw on the
fire. Grilling isn't just for avid
carnivores either, as most veg-
gies can be prepared for grilling
as well. Try experimenting with
different marinades and flavored
wood chips to achieve the results
you're looking for. If third-degree
burns and standing in the sun all
day isn't your thing, try a picnic.
Sandwiches, fruits, pastries, chips
and drinks can all be pre-made or
even store-bought, meaning that
you just have to grab a cooler and
go. For a list of food recipes and
ideas, try the always-creative food
