I’ve memorized every crack in the wall of the card catalogue room but sadly, nothing else…

Leo Gertsenshteyn reports:

A man in a banana costume just ran screaming through 209 Butler. Luckily, it has promptly returned to being an uneventful night of studying and NSA sex in the stacks.

And overheard in Butler Cafe:

Girl: Oh guess what! I’m soooo excited! I got my books on
Mesopotamia today!
Guy: Oh, cool. What class are they for?
Girl: Oh, they’re just fun books on Mesopotamia, for my own reading
Guy (a little caught off gaurd): Oh . . . I didn’t know they made
FUN books about Mesapotamia.
Girl: Don’t be silly! Are there any other kind!!??

    @Leo Gertsenshteyn Surprisingly enough, I’m also the guy in that conversation. Apparantly, tonight, I *am* Mr. Excitement at Columbia… I mean, it’s true every night; I’m just glad just people are finally noticing.

      @Mr. Excitement If I had to choose between Leo, an atlas of Mesopotamia, and an Arrested Development DVD – well, maybe the choice would be easier if Leo were in the banana suit.

    @hmm The banana and friends were snapping photos of one another with mouths agape in silence in the 2nd floor bathroom. Banana has no cred.
