The Final Friday that blue sky? AND a sun? This is weather is going crazy. Enjoy the 7o degree and sunny weather while you can because is predicting the return of clouds and rain around 4 pm today.

So today marks the last Friday of the year and finals day 2 of 5. In a nice break from there being absolutely nothing going on on campus this week, there are actually a few things to do today.

First you have the Temple University community American Red Cross blood drive. Now til 3 in the SAC 200. Stickers on sale for one pint of blood.

Author Chuck Palahniuk, who wrote the books turned movies Fight Club and Choke, will be at the Free Library of Philadelphia to read parts of his new book, Pygmy, and sign authographs. It's scheduled for 7:30 but insiders suggest getting there by 6 to secure a good spot and guarantee not watching him on a monitor from another room. It's free to attend and the library is located at 1901 Vine Street (2oth and the parkway).

Men's and women's crew are competing in the prestigious Dad Vail Regatta down on the Schuylkill near Kelly drive, and given the current weather it'd make a nice noontime to head down there and see some races.

Baseball is playing those damn St. Louie Billikins over at Ambler @ 3 pm, which could very well mean a rain-out.

Also at Ambler, you have the
"Let’s Get Moving Health Walk" at noon. It seems this is some kind of weekly health initiative where students are encouraged to walk one mile. At main campus, this is referred to as walking to class at Anderson and Gladfelter.

Good luck on your finals and we'll see you later today for the weekender. Don't forget to give blood.
