Tuesday Morning Trifles

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?

  • quote says:

    @quote from daily news- “like all eight of the students we polled”

    sounds like some professional research, there.

  • the farmer's market says:

    @the farmer's market has moved to lerner? what?

    1. nope says:

      @nope the cc’09ers are just going to buy some shit from it and carry it inside as part of a promotion. kinda funny, that.

  • Bank Street yeah says:

    @Bank Street yeah I still have my copy of Winnie Ille Pu from 8th grade Latin

  • Matt Sanchez says:

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

  • Check your facts says:

    @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.

    1. huh? says:

      @huh? “if there are just as many mistakes on BWOG as there were in the CCSC email”

      might want to proofread that.

      bwog was just making a funny reference to the acronym; it wasn’t implying anything about the actual function of the group.

    2. Lydia says:

      @Lydia You’re right, a regrettable slip. We actually do know what we’re talking about, though. See March’s story on the group…

      …and our follow-up last week.

  • class of '09 says:

    @class of '09 that e-mail was obviously not written by george. cut this first time kid some slack.

  • whoa says:

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

  • this says:

    @this that should be “no incentive to do stuff”

  • this says:

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

    1. ??? says:

      @??? Have juniors on the senior class council??

  • wait, seriously says:

    @wait, seriously why is our class run by clowns? don’t they get money to do things? have they done anything this year?

  • CUSJ says:

    @CUSJ Fuck Jester.

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
