Poster Party 200X (04 Dec 2005 at 13:09)
In what is becoming a bit of a radar cliche, I say again, "Wow, busy weekend!" I feel like a real socialite (that means socialist with 40% fewer calories) having been invited to so many events yesterday. In truth, I felt a little bit stretched thin (that means drawn and quartered) because there were so many people around that I wanted to interact with, but not enough time to actually do it. On the other hand, like I said when America Online was forced out of business permanently in 1998 because they had too many subscribers, if you're gonna have a problem, I guess this is a pretty good kind of problem to have.

The pasta we made at Spoons's house was also stretched thin! The cornbread at the Cottage was also quartered! The nog at Erika's had also 40% fewer calories!

Tonight around six some of us with print quotas burning holes in our virtual e-wallets are having a poster making and printing party on campus. If anybody from andrew.cmu.edu wants to join us, e-mail me and I will alert you to the location, once it is determined. Everyone else, keep an eye out for our delightful decorations early during the week...

Also, I found out that Dinosaur Jr. played a show here on thursday with Lou Barlow touring behind their best (first) three albums and SOMEHOW FORGOT TO TELL ALL THE BIG DINOSAUR JR FANS IN PITTSBURGH LIKE ME.

A couple of my friends went to the show ... I think they enjoyed it (I hope I'm not rubbing salt in wounds). Although maybe they didn't. Yeah ..... that's right.

Hey, I just saw the "two nuts were walking in a bad part of town and one of them was..." joke on a poster advertising a StuCo class on the theory of comedy.

That's right, Cortney, that joke is right from the THEORY OF COMEDY.

How can one argue with a StuCo poster on the theory of comedy?

So two sodium atoms are walking down the street, and one turns to another and says frantically, "oh my ..... I've lost an electron!" And the other atom says "Really? Are you sure you lost an electron?" And the first atom says, "I'm positive!"

straight from gen chem 101.

I like that one too--it's cross-listed in theory of comedy, IMO--which I first heard on the wall of the men's Wean 7th floor restroom. Why did they replace joke central with write-proof plastic walls? Do they hate laughter?

You can always bring back free expression to bathroom -- liberation! In college our dorm council's notes were posted in the bathroom, with a pencil stuck to a piece of "ticky-tack" also stuck to the stall wall.
While there are debatable public hygiene issues with this approach, it is certainly adaptable to write-proof plastic walls.

Bonus: these write-proof plastic walls have unbelievable standing electric charges, attracting dust and hairs and bits of toilet paper, but also obviating the need for expensive ticky-tack. Any scrap of paper will do!

At least the peripheral wean bathrooms are still first-amendment compatible. And boy, do people sure exercise their rights there.

does this imply you travel all the way down to the first floor to express yourself? (cue madonna song)

No way! I mean the horizontal periphery, not vertical. These freedom bathrooms are on every upper floor over by Doherty. (Cue, uh, M. Doughty song)

I think my posting privileges should be revoked until I get some more sleep. Blame speed reading combined with tiredness on my misreading of your post.

I am glad to hear the freedom bathrooms are abundant.

How am I supposed to procrastinate working on my thesis proposal if I ban my friends from my blog-dar?

Somehow I don't think that "gonzo thesis proposal" would go over well with my advisors. ;)
