The 2008 Housing Lottery: LiveBwogging Your Best Mistake Ever!
Written by Bwog Staff
The day of reckoning has arrived, and Bwog will be stationed on a beanbag chair in John Jay, livebwogging your fate. Check back to this post throughout the day today, with frequent updates of what suites are still in your grasp.
Tensions are running high in the John Jay lounge this morning, and the Metallica (?) on the boombox isn’t helping matters, although the soda in the well-stocked refrigerator seems to be. “Hand me an iced tea,” a girl in a summery skirt demanded of her (almost) suite mate. “I need one.” Don’t we all?
(The number under the flash is a “2”.)
For some reason unbeknown to Bwog, housing is choosing to update the whiteboard in frustratingly infrequent intervals. (Ignore the 10:51 timestamp in the photo below).
Housing came over an annouced to Spec and Bwog (whom they referred to as “that Barnard paper”) that they’re doing a count right now and the board will be updating again in a few minutes. Stand by.

Suite selection comes to a momentary halt. A housing staffer walks over the the reporters lounge/soda bar in the corner to frown at a two-legged table. The third leg is about three feet away. “What happened to that table?” Bwog asked, guessing that some unlucky group destroyed the table in a fit of rage. “Oh, there are Legos in the legs. I guess someone wanted to build a monster.” And lo and behold, inside the legs of the table Legos. And beside the table, a monster.
Also, suite selection is on pause until 1:30 PM.

All the EC townhouses that face Morningside are gone. All the 6-person high-rises are gone. There are a few SIPA-facing townhouses left.
The board was just updated! As housing is on pause, this is the most current information:
Selection has yet to start back up again and ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” is playing on repeat. “This is just what we need!” exclaims one housing employee who’s clearly tired of dealing with stressed out students. There’s a lot of sugar consumption in this room to keep spirits high. Bwog awaits the sugar come down.
