Week Two of SHU: Top Ten

10. Editorial meeting with Setonian staff. I think wonderful things are going to happen this year.

9. Peanut butter pie in the dining hall. I AM A PEANUT BUTTER FIEND. I guess I just love nutty things.

8. Blogging like mad. I think I have commented myself out on the new blogs. Be an advocate of SHU blogging. Check out the newbies.

7. Cleaning up the Setonian office and decorating. The signs are colorful and the room is relatively clean.

6. Opening Liturgy--Although I am not a Catholic, I think this is a great way to start out the year. Students assemble in the Seton Hill St. Joseph's Chapel and "take mass." Is that right? Though I do get a bit embarrassed when I don't know the hymns or return addresses to the father, I do feel very connected to my classmates in sharing this time together.

5. No classes because of the liturgy. Need I say more?

4. Getting busy once more. I remember over the summer, I was bored out of my mind. My mind, rather than my brute forcefulness (of which there is little), is getting a workout. The work is just enough to keep me on edge, but not put me over the cliff like last year.

3. Meal plans rock. I have three lunches in the dining hall this year. Now, I don't have to surreptiously "borrow" desserts from pals. And friends don't have to deplete their flex on me. I just have to pack the other two days. No biggie.

2. Righteous femurs--lots of them on campus. Karissa, you know what I mean.

1. I got my hair cut this morning. I get freaked out when people start hacking at my locks. But this time it worked out pretty well. It has layers up to my chin and about an inch taken off the bottom (I like the length).

"Righteous Femurs" sounds like either a rock band, or a really cool poem title. Nice post. And hey, it's the "publications" office, not the "Setonian" office. Don't marginalize Eye Contact, your sister publication of the arts! (And we all admired the renovations VERY much at our first staff meeting, by the way!)

Do you have a bone fetish? Or is this "righteous femur" some early-90's alternative movement jargon that I am not aware of? Just curious...q:

Apologies, Dr. Arnzen. I really need to start writing for Eye Contact. As this post demonstrates, I tend to get biased in my office use.

Keep guessing, Evan. :-D

No one will ever come close to knowing what a "righteous" femur is... mwhahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Except me ;)

We have renovated a bit more, Dr. Arnzen. We are using the old photo-negative light-up thingamajigs as decoration. Also, most of the cabinets are straightened.

Our bulletin board kicks arse.

I also am educated the art of identifying "femur's." It is my favorite past time (and present time...?). Oh, those poor uneducated souls. Everyone should know of femur's.

Hey Marian and Sarah. Thanks for visiting. Femurs. Oh the blessed knowledge we possess!

Glad I had the fellow femur-seekers check this out :) Glorious femurs...!
