Went to Columbia's convocation yesterday (it's mostly for undergrads but they lured us out with the promise of a mimosa and I had to get my U-pass for the train). Came home with two water bottles (one metal, one plastic), a plastic Pride flag, a package of un-popped pop corn, a pizza cutter, condoms, a business card holder (lulz get it, because we're all art students and have no business with such a thing--I'm going to keep the condoms in there), a tiny foam football (nowhere near as cool as New College's declaring our non-existant team undefeated, but whatever), an ID holder, a tape measure, and lots of hand sanitizer, fliers, pens, magnets, buttons, and keychains. I filled a tote bag with these items and other tote bags like a hoarder.
Speaking of New College, I got the alumni magazine and found a mention of myself on the notable alums page. Your fellow classmate is publishing porn now (it mentions my contribution to the Foreign Affairs anthology and my impending queer Sherlock Holmes book)! How proud is my alma mater?
