What a great, weird weekend. Driving around Saturday night in the scooter I passed by some drunk girls and one was like, "Hey baby, I want to go for a ride. Can I scoot
with you?" and pelvic thrusted the hell out of the last sentence. That's happened a couple of times before, but after I'd gone about half a block one of the other girls comes stumble-sprinting toward me, windmilling her arms, and shouting, "SAM! SAAAAM! IS THAT YOU IN THE SCOOTER? WAIT SAM!"
Then Sunday morning Lou IMs me and says, "Come to the Quad at 2. You'll like it." And it was pretty fantastic. It was Community Day, so hundreds of families were out around the Oval and the mouth of the Quad, but I was pretty certain as I drove past the pony rides that this was not what Lou had in mind. But what did he have in mind? A 10-foot tall alien, played by Henry's brother Will on spring stilts, chasing Daniel the helpless marine around the Quad. We eventually took the group through the hordes of children and got literally dozens of people to follow us. One little girl took the side of "the monster" and kept pointing out Daniel.( FootageCollapse )
The most fun I've had in a while. Most of SGS (26 of us) went out to dinner at Chili's after that, which was nice.
Right now I'm trying to decide for disability draw whether I want to put Kairos or Columbae as my first choice. I hadn't anticipated Columbae being a possibility, but they're renovating it this summer and I think it will be. Also, if anyone knows how I contact Theta Chi to live there over the summer, let me know.
