Tuesday Morning Trifles

Written by

Spec is only running Monday and Wednesday on this sunny, gloriously action-packed midterm week. So in the absence of our usual morning recap, we present this motley roundup of completely unrelated miscellany…

  • roundup
    Behold the latest email from the CC ’09 class council, proving to seniors, perhaps, that they don’t have it so bad. The missive begins by observing “Wollstonecraft is a hotty,” and quickly goes downhill. A section  titled “Free Food Just Doesn’t Get Any Freer” describes the purchase and movement of the Broadway farmer’s market a few meters inside, to Lerner. To wit, soon will be your “Last Chance to SEXIFY” the student center. Add an announcement for a campus group J. Sachs project called GROCC, at least three misspellings, four instances of triple exclamation points, and three announcements copied and pasted from other emails. Coda? “BEST OF LUCK ON THE MIDDIES”. Beware, sophomores – it’s never too early to start worrying about Class Day.

  • You’ve probably only visited if you’ve taken the English department’s seminar on children’s literature, or if you’re a GS student with a full house. The rest of us, apparently, are missing out: Bank Street Bookstore was recently named by New York magazine as the best indie book vendor (well, for kids) in town. Come to think of it, where else would you find a place featuring picture books in Urdu, Vietnamese, and Bengali – not to mention an edition of “Winnie the Pooh”…in Latin?

  • Material on college sex finally running thin, the Daily News calls out Columbia students for throwing “narcissistic” parties. Which deadly sin will the tabloids tackle next week?

  • Meanwhile, Dartmouth students discover a new way to be bored…as if they needed it?

  1. wait, seriously  

    why is our class run by clowns? don't they get money to do things? have they done anything this year?

  2. this  

    this is why we should elect juniors to CCSC... seniors have no incentive to stuff because they can't be re-elected.

  3. this  

    that should be "no incentive to do stuff"

  4. whoa  

    matt sanchez was a gay porn star? why can't he be class day speaker?(see gawker)

  5. class of '09  

    that e-mail was obviously not written by george. cut this first time kid some slack.

  6. Check your facts  

    Thanks for actually reading the email bwog... GROCC is an Earth Institute Think Tank that functions as a link between the science community and big business. It is in no way a student group. Plus if you looked at what the acronym stands for maybe you wouldn't be so quick to judge. Rather than consistently fucking up news stories it might help if you approached things with a little more objective attitude. Honestly, if there are just as many mistakes on BWOG as there were in the CCSC email.

  7. Matt Sanchez  

    So Matt Sanchez did a little gay porn. Who hasn't? Right?

  8. Bank Street yeah  

    I still have my copy of Winnie Ille Pu from 8th grade Latin

  9. the farmer's market  

    has moved to lerner? what?

  10. quote  

    from daily news- "like all eight of the students we polled"

    sounds like some professional research, there.
