The Chosen One
Written by Bwog Staff
He’s the most envied and hated man on campus—yes, Steven Rubel, who snagged housing lottery number 21. So what’s going on in that lucky head of his? Via e-mail, he responds to Bwog’s queries:
How does it feel to be the shit? What’s your secret?
It’s just further proof that God likes me a lot more than he likes you. I’m pretty used to it by this point in my life.
What housing are you going for?
Murder, espionage, and over-hyped literary movements are all going to play a hand in my decision for housing. People with purely good intentions (what else can I call them?) all tell me to shoot for one of those gigantic rooms at Watt, and well, Hell- I might just do that; but if time permits, I will certainly opt for something with a bit more color… I’m considering to hunt for the room of former-Soviet spy, Morris Cohen or Beat Generation luminary-Lucien Carr (who else?). Of course, there’s the whole Roskot/Nelford – murder/suicide incident from 2000 which involves Ruggles Hall. I don’t know. I’m sure all the interesting rooms that I want are going to be small, cramped, and sweltering but I’m more than willing to put up with that as long as it’s in a single. I’m not sharing a room with anyone- unless it’s a ghost.
What’s your favorite word and why?
‘Fluoxetine,’ it just rolls off your tongue…
