The city came by and made some improvements to my hostas.  Maybe I should do the rest of its leaves.

So, I did this yesterday, and now Dina and Paul are married!  What an amazing honor, and what fun to get to say such life-altering words. 
(Dan says to me later in the afternoon, “Hey, remember when you were afraid of public speaking?”)

Pillage your final semester.

Burn it down and take its loot. 

Sweet, sweet Latin-honors loot.

You are almost there and I am so proud of you.

Fun facts about Bates, II

As a college founded by abolitionist Free-Will Baptists in 1855, Bates admitted women and people of all races from the very beginning.  Can’t help comparing that to Williams (and Bates is always comparing itself to Williams).  Williams was founded in 1793, admitted its first black student in 1885 and first woman in 1970.

Dude I don’t know much about menswear but I’m gonna say we did okay at the Kiwanis Sale when I sprung a semi-formal event on my brother  with no warning & we had to go out thrifting the morning-of and spend $12 on this Christian Dior suit.  (The $4 dress shirt with the tags still on was a nice find, too, though perhaps a less incredible one than the suit?)  Bet it’ll look even sharper when he gets the jacket tailored from Size 40 down to Size Lanky.
