Bruin Is To Bear As _____ Is To _____
Thanks to elizabeg I've come to follow the after-dark doings of UCLA graduate students like yourbestfiend -- who gets extra credit for eating her way out of hangover while watching football -- and tropicopolitan -- who has a knack for party photography. It really does make me nostalgic for my own pre-qualifying exam experiences. Unfortunately, even though I'm otherwise am excellent documentarist, I have very few concrete souvenirs of my erstwhile festivating. You see, at the parties I attended, way up at UCLA's older sister of an institution, I was rarely in the portion of the room that people would allow to be photographed. Sometimes possession really is 9/10 of the law. . .

possession?

hey! Not only am I first-year fairy godmother, but I am officially in charge of all recreational activities at parties, whatever those may be. Other than kitchen-hanging.

Thanks for the shout-out though - I'm finding ways to avoid hangovers entirely through judicious eating. Though bacon helps a lot.

Re: possession?

I see. So the PBR is actually a smokescreen! Well done. You have a delightful way of expressing the pre-party flush and post-party rosy glow.

Vandover how I love thee

Those girls are excellent documentarists indeed, although my fabulously-shirted self didn't make the photo cut. Apparently I was rarely in the portion of the room as well? Well not exactly but T did call me on this over brunch. But have no fear--soon you'll be getting your very own elizabegly elliptical edition of the weekend festivities as well. Photos without photos?

Spent last night trying to enforce bloggerly self-control, forcing myself to read 19thC psychology instead of thinking through the grad school underworld. Trouble was everything I was reading was on habits of adolescent male sexuality. Yeah. So I didn't get very far.

Damn straight!

:)

And unrelatedly, must also remember some boys do in fact know how to use telephones, evidence to the contrary notwithstanding. Because then I wouldn’t have to retrospectively ask myself things like wtf was I thinking not giving neurobiology boy my number even though he didn’t ask for it.

Dissertation on said topics forthcoming over email. But first, to the books!
