Personals: Who Shot JR? Edition

Written by

Well, this Friday is Michaelmas, and you still haven’t got anybody to share it with.  Don’t worry—Bwog has you covered.  If you yearn for the dashing Ben or the lovely Kate, simply drop us an email at [email protected].  If you’re chosen, we’ll set you up and give you $5—that’s five dollars!—for a coffee date.  It’ll be a blast.  And don’t forget—if you or anyone you know wants to be featured as a personal, drop us a line and we’ll hook you up.

Name: Ben

School: SEAS

Year: ’08

Major: Civil Engineering, with a minor in Architecture

Hometown: Colleyville, TX (Suburb of Dallas/Fort Worth)

Top three songs according to iTunes’ play count:

1. Kyrie from the Mozart Requiem, directed by Herbert Von Karajan and performed by the Weiner Singverein and the Berlin Philharmonic

2. So Into You by The Stereo

3. O Nata Lux from Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna performed by the Los Angeles

Chorale (I’m a choral music freak, what can I say?)

You’re trapped on a desert island with three foods—what are they?

Mallomars, Taco Bell Tacos, Dr. Pepper

Describe your favorite pair of underwear.

Gotta be the C9 by Champion boxer briefs. Comfort and support. It’s the way to go.

It’s 2 o’clock on a Sunday afternoon. Where can you be found?

My bed. Or doing problem sets.



Nightmare date in three words or less:


Fashonista on crack.

So, what are you doing after college?

Grad school?  Or possibly designing sewage systems….

When I first came to Columbia, I thought….

I’m home!!! [Spins circles in celebration.]

TCBY or Tasti D-Lite?

Of the two, Tasti-D, mostly because the name reminds me of afternoon delight.

Flight, invisibility, or X-Ray vision?

Flight. Invisibility and X-Ray vision present too many ethical issues. Plus, free travel.

Unusual talents?

Seeming not-Texan and not Engineer-ish, and I make a mean break-n-bake

cookie.

MySpace or Facebook?

Facebook.

Ben! You’re the one for me!

 

 

Name: Kate

School: CC

Year: ’09

Major: Architecture/Creative Writing

Hometown: Richardson, TX (Suburb of Dallas/Fort Worth)

Top three songs according to iTunes’ play count:

Oh my, this is embarrassing. Here goes:

1. Talk Show Host, by Radiohead

2. Maps, by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

3. About a Girl, by Nirvana

You’re trapped on a desert island with three foods—what are they?

Cheese (any kind, really)

GORP (a heavenly shake-up of granola, dried fruits, peanuts, and M&Ms)

Scones

Describe your favorite pair of underwear.

They’re black and they sit real low.

It’s 2 o’clock on a Sunday afternoon. Where can you be found?

On a street corner panhandling for a cup of coffee

Nightmare date in three words or less:

Me. Wearing. Dress.

So, what are you doing after college?

A stint in the Peace Corps.

When I first came to Columbia, I thought….

Oh God, I’m the only person here with purple hair.

TCBY or Tasti D-Lite?

Tasti D. They put the topping in the bottom of the cup too!

Flight, invisibility, or X-Ray vision?

Flight. I’d like definitive proof that it is, in fact, impossible to sleep on clouds. They just look so fluffy.

Unusual talents?

I can do a no-handed cartwheel. And make a mean grilled cheese. Probably even at the same time.

MySpace or Facebook?

Ideally, neither.

    oh lord, those stupid asterisks for actions make me want to barf.

  2. yo bwog  

    I think the super power question needs to go, or be modified.

  3. See,  

    I could never be in one of these personals. I'm not cool enough to use iTunes.

  4. smitten  

    i have to say, ben is really really cute, but i'm way too shy to email bwgossip. also, it'd be nice to know more - like does ben get to pick the candidates or does bwog do the choosing? etc.

  5. heyyyyyyy

    tasti d lite never put toppings on the bottom of the cup for ME.

    • yeah  

      i feel jipped.

      and ben. you do look like a seas kid- but you know what- be proud of it. You can be cute and be seas so be proud of who you are.

      As for kate- really dissapointed in the top itunes list, i was expecting something more on the order of:
      1- misfits song
      2- slayer song
      3- ramones song

  6. knows her Dallas  

    Ben's a sweety...

    But I have to say, where are the cowboy hats, the boots, the bolo tie? If you're going to have a Who Shot JR? edition, I'm going to expect a little more from you Bwog. Like finding out this was all a dream...

  7. f.d  

    kate's pretty much amazing

  8. fashionista on crack  

    whatever!

  9. well  

    kate is one of those girls that make straight girls start questioning...

  10. well  

    kate is one of those girls that make straight girls start questioning...

  11. a fan  

    kate is the best date ever. period.

  12. suggestion box slip

    Bwog...your questions kind of suck. try the proust questionaire. I mean, why would anyone care about myspace vs. facebook? and the super power question? SO banal. you really can do better.
