Things That Spell Our Doom–2

1. Rachel Liontas

Harmless Gullible Freshman... OR IDENTITY THIEF???

Harmless Gullible Freshman... OR IDENTITY THIEF???

She looks a little TOO happy considering we convinced her to buy most of the Wiess Garage Sale. I mean, don’t get me wrong; I love Rachel Liontas. If there was some kind of bracket system to determine The Best Freshman, she would totally be in my Final Four (now that I think about it, why DON’T we pit the freshmen against each other in a dramatic, death-defying battle for the seniors’ love? Or is that the Freshmen One Acts?). At the wildly successful Wiess Garage Sale, Rachel made off with the following from THE 434’s stash of amazingness: a coconut cup, kickball, Mystery Date Game, pirate hat, Rubix Cube, shiny pink 80s dress, hot pink toga, cowboy hat, Christmas lights, and red star sunglasses. This list is a little too calculated to be just random, impulse buying. Clearly she is amassing all of our definitive possessions in a wild bid to become THE 434 after we have gone. DO NOT BE FOOLED. Just because it is pink and sparkly does NOT mean that it is necessarily Bova!

2. THE 434’s List Completion

Harmless shenanigans... OR PLOT TO DESTROY WIESS???

Harmless shenanigans... OR PLOT TO DESTROY WIESS???

I know it’s kind of hypocritical to say that, as an integral part of THE 434 and its List of Things to Do Before Graduating, I am something that spells our doom, but, let’s face it, we’ve already done all the easy ones like #1 Meet Beyonce, and now we have only fifteen days to complete the other 37. Also, since I finished my last paper yesterday I have lots of free time to devote to #22 Cause “all kinds of drama” or #13 Kill Jeremy Caves. It used to be “Kidnap Jeremy Caves” until we learned that other people already had this idea on three separate occasions. THE 434 prides itself on originality. Incidentally, if you have some free time and want to help out with #33 Hold Auditions for Next BFF, #53 Start a Pyramid Scheme at Wiess, or #69 Hold Auditions and Perform Exorcism (see above), you can find me (clearly) in THE 434, always willing to wreak havoc or cover you in green slime. Always.

3. Starvation/Tetra Point Wars

A Harmless Agreement Between Friends... OR MEDIEVAL SERFDOM???

A Harmless Agreement Between Friends... OR MEDIEVAL SERFDOM???

I still remain unconvinced that the Servery will remain open after exams are over for the few of us seniors who remain.  Therefore, most of us will starve to death, except for those few who have not already rashly spent all of our Tetra Points on smoothies and coffee. The few who have saved for this very moment will lord it over those of us who have not, forcing us to wait on them like medieval chattels in exchange for day old 13th Street sushi or sketchy pub pizza. Maybe eventually we will rise up against the wealthy minority and redistribute the Tetra points equally among all, living the last few days till graduation in a Utopian collective. Or massively corrupt communist dictatorship. Whatevs.

Harmless Feta Lover... OR SHAMELESS EXTORTIONIST???

So Brian’s been giving me a lot (well, two) shout outs in the Thresher calendar page lately, which I don’t have a link to because they don’t post it on their website (suspiciously). The first time it was just a nice little paragraph about how my blog is awesome (with a thinly veiled threat about what will happen to me if I stop updating). But last week featured an entirely fictitious quote in which I counseled zombie preparedness over Velociraptor attack preparedness. That’s actually an issue I feel strongly about, but that’s not the point. Brian seems to think (along with Julia and Arin who used me to pimp their Hedgejumping Plan on the list serv for some reason) that just dropping my name will add credibility to his controversial calendar writing. Clearly he is trying to ride my coat tails to success. “But, Patricia,” he will say when this blog (or the one acts?) finally start pulling its weight and I’m living in a mansion with a lazy river and a private amusement park, “remember when I gave you a shout out in the calendar that one time? You clearly owe all of your success to me! GIVE ME YOUR PET UNICORN!” Yeah, I plan to be so rich that I will be able to buy mythical animals. Why do you think I’m charging THREE pies for the one act this year?

I hope you don’t need me to tell you why this is bad news bears.

    Hey Patricia, just wanted to let you know that I’m loving the Plaid Pladd. It’s pretty fab, and I’d be lyin’ through my teeth if I told you I didn’t get excited every time a new post pops up in my Google Reader.

    I haven’t found an appropriate place to write a comment on the entirety of the blog, so I’m just gonna put it here on the most recent post. Your 434 shenanigans sound awesome, your summer road trip looks fun (and exhausting), and the Bridget the Fish tale had me in stitches. Congrats on your (almost) graduation and good luck with grad school!

    heheh. Dropping your name doesn’t add legitimacy – just the promise of zaniness and good time 😀 Sorry to disappoint. Hedgejumping will still happen. Soon. I think.
