Longwoodians Paint the Rock at ZU!

Hello avid readers!

It has been quite some time since the last post. Even though it's not Sunday, I figured I would give everyone an update. Things have been quite busy here in Longwood. Many students went back to their homes outside of Longwood, as long as they had been already infected.

So, we're all back in Longwood for the coming school year. To raise awareness of our cause, some of us decided to paint the Rock at ZU. Painting the Rock is a tradition started long ago at Longwood University. It has been carried on even though we have been infected. The key to painting the Rock, is that it must be guarded for 24 hours prior to painting. It's quite a fascinating history, but I don't have the time to explain. We just finished painting the Rock, and it was a tiring experience. I understand that some of the time guarding the Rock was documented by the film crew. Apparently it is all at www.undeadseriously.com.

In other news, the school has decided to renovate our dorm. Unfortunately, they still haven't finished. I'm hoping once it's all done, our rooms will be nicer.

Anyway, I'm a bit tired. Classes begin tomorrow, and I need to get some sleep.

Good night,

  1. Painting on a layer of sealer or varnish is optional, though it will help the paint to stick. (It's also said to slow down the evaporation of moisture from the pumpkin helping it to last longer, but really, painted pumpkins are temporary artworks.) Any type of general purpose sealer or acrylic medium ought to be okay, but if in doubt do a small test on the bottom of your pumpkin first. candy paint colors
