I know, I know, there’s no way we could ever forget, but I’m just so excited I had to write in about our favorite day of the year! No, it’s not dorm dance season, even if that is a great excuse to get all dressed up. It’s not all those winter birthdays that give us an excuse to have some liquid birthday cake and make that South Bend temperature feel a little warmer. It wasn’t even this past Sunday with all the talking baby commercials, although those babies are totes adorable! Especially http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEXZ2hfD3bU! Whoops, this isn’t an e-mail. That totally isn’t going to work. Come on girls, we all know our favorite day of the year is Siegfried Hall’s Day of Man!

While everyone else on campus is busy bundling up and trudging through the snow, the hunky men of Siegfried will be out there Wednesday wearing nothing but T-shirts, shorts and flip flops (P.S. boys — wearing a shirt is totally optional, just sayin’). And if showing off their wind-chafed skin and snow-frozen hair wasn’t enough, these boys are doing it for a good cause. Siegfried’s finest are being cold for one day to raise money for the South Bend Center for the Homeless. I had been saving up to buy a new pair of Uggs, but I think I’ll bring all my loose change with me on Wednesday to show these guys how much I love their rippling abs and bulging biceps. Maybe I’ll even be able to talk one or two of them into making me a snow angel!
