A new addition

My name is Chazz and this is my first post. I have known Kev since we took a class taught by a turkey-lady. I like rainbows (though I’m not gay, only bi-curious) and also Wes Anderson films. I’m not actually bi-curious.

Speaking of turkey, what if you were addicted to cold turkey? How would you give it up? You couldn’t just go cold turkey, you would have to get like, cold turkey gum or a cold turkey inhaler. Just think of how ridiculous you would sound:

“I’m quitting cold turkey, bro. This time I mean it.”
“Cool bro, what are you quitting?”
“Cold turkey you DUMBASS WHY ARE YOU SO STUPID?!”

My roommates and I are quitting cold turkey for Lent. That is, we are observing Lent in the East Orthodox manner in addition to giving up masturbation (as usual). That means that we cant eat meat, dairy, eggs or fish ever. We can drink booze and use oil only on the weekends. It’s hard enough to be vegan, but not using oil or eating things with added oil is about as hard as my- you get the idea.

I went to Clarke’s today for coffee. When you go to a restaurant and get a bottomless cup of coffee, that really just means that they will refill it once, because you will tip 15% all the same you big pussy.

Cold turkey gum sounds like a delicious Mexican candy.

There was a new addition to the Girl Scout cookie line-up this year…Café Cookies. Avoid them at all costs, for they are stale, hard, wretched pieces of cinnamon hardtack.

Just wanted to let you know.

I was contemplating crushing them in my blender and feeding them to the dog that lives next to my apartment building, but the thought of cleaning the blender afterwards was a deal-breaker. Also, the blades might break.

Long delayed, finally here is the final post regarding Winter Break…which occurred almost 2 months ago now. Enter the Motherland.

My guess is that things will start slowing down now.

Yesterday was my roommate Dave’s birthday:

cake

You may not be able to see it, but there are actually 22 candles on this cake.

So my roommate Chris is on the Executive board for Dance Marathon. My other roommate Tim and I joke about how many meetings has to go to; whenever someone asks where he is, the answer is “at a DM meeting,” whether we know or not. Anyway, on February 8th, as a PR event, they organized a performance of the dance from Michael Jackson’s Thriller. I don’t know if you’ve seen the original music video, but they all turn into zombies and to put it succinctly, are insane.

As you might (or might not) recognize, it was on the SPAC courts. The camera man in the video was from a news channel from Connecticut; I assume they had a slow news day. The number of people (like 80 or something) made this the largest group performance of the dance, so apparently Northwestern DM will be in the Guiness Book of World Records.

I honestly doubt anyone who reads this is doing DM this year or has even gone to see it. I have to say it’s pretty ridiculous, and I give props to anyone who does it. It will be held at the end of the month.

E. poor grammar.

From my EMT text:

emt

A warped sense of humor is probably the result of staying in on a Friday night.

My roommate Chris came home from the SASA show not too long ago. On his return, Tim asked, “did you go with a hot date?” to which Chris replied, “no, but I did take a shot of Indian liquor…tasted like curry.” Little does Chris know that everything Indian tastes like curry.

I’ll get to the rest of the pictures.

I know I’m supposed to finish the Winter Break pictures, but I felt like putting this up:

0131071416

I saw this on my way up to my apartment. In case you can’t read it, it says: “FUCKING ASSFUCKS I SAID DONT LOCK THE FUCKING DOOR.”

I’m going to miss college.

On a side note, I am determined to get my Wii by next weekend. After midterms and a job interview, it would be ideal. You heard it here first, people.
