Stuff I could take or leave

Letter to the Editor | Friday, April 25, 2008

In response to Tim Loftus’ “Grind My Gears” (April 23) and Eleanor Bradley’s “What Floats My Boat” (April 24), I present to you “Stuff I Could Take or Leave.”

Pom squad … make your own waffles – ehh, they take awhile to make … Rum Runners on Wednesday nights – I suppose if it’s somebody’s birthday, I’ll go … sports other than football – yea, not real interested … Holy Cross College … Memorial Day – it’s no 4th of July … 4-star recruits – I guess we have to fill the squad up somehow … InsideND – meh … Meerkat Manor – comme-ci, comme-ça … global warming – not too concerned … Sbarro – I guess if I was buzzed … Flipside events – I guess if I was drunk … Eucharistic Processions – I guess if I was hammered … planetarium at the Jordan Hall of Science – perhaps if science wasn’t boring … the yearbook – doesn’t strike my fancy … Microsoft Vista … Peace Studies – don’t “get” it … the Library – I guess it has a cool mural of Jesus … Canada – blah … Chester A. Arthur … full-rear nudity – I guess it’s okay? … Holy Half Marathon – good for you, buddy … grad students … the MTV Movie Awards – really? … Midnight drummer’s circle – it was cool the first time … free events at the DPAC – at least the bathrooms are nice … Bill Paxton … Barracuda spam – meh … Knott Hall – I guess we’re pressed for room on campus … War on Terror – not a big deal anymore … PigTostal … personal hygiene – not a priority … Loyal Daughters – is that real? … Kansas City – both sides … Cooper Manning.

And that, my friends, is “Stuff I Could Take or Leave.”
