Overheard: Where the Hedonists Head

Written by

Heading back home from an EC party.

This weekend spawned some particularly sparkly gems. First, in the wee hours of the morning, a fairly intoxicated guy and girl approach the sign-in desk. The guy swipes in, but the girl lingers for a moment. She needs to be signed in:

Guy: Oh, so you go to Barnard?

Girl: Um, yeah. Is that a problem?

Guy: No… (looks her up and down)… not at all. Yeah, that’s cool. Okay, I’ll stop talking now.

Girl: Yeah, maybe you should.

Across Broadway, in 600, a Barnard lass had this to say about the her humble abode:

“Barnard dorms just weren’t made for parties.  E.C. was made thinking ‘children are going to get drunk and vomit here.’ The architect was LOLing while he designed EC.”

  1. Well, I never!

    Those Barnard girls are full of sass.

    • Actually,  

      I've been hanging out with a lot more Barnard girls this semester (since 3 of my sociology classes are over there) and generally, they're a lot of fun.

      Columbia girls tend to be 'smarter' in class and then unable to function properly outside. They're either too intense (no, I don't want to talk about your JP Morgan internship interview for 2 hours) or just kind of stupid (don't be upset that you're being checked out at 1020 when your dress barely covers your underwear).

      Barnard girls may get wasted & desperate in 2.5 minutes every Thursday night at 1020 but at least they cop to it.

      Then again maybe I'm just jaded by my Columbia ex. Sofia, you bitch.

        I like my women to conform to their gender roles. Stfu, function properly.

          Uh, yeah. Shouldn't...everyone aim to behave properly? As in a non-irrational, non-batshit, socially-aware way?

          I'm sorry, but feminism doesn't excuse you acting like a nutcase under the umbrella of being liberated?

    I always wondered what it was like to be the security guard working at that desk...
