    The most infamous hazing at my school involved laxative-laced coffees handed out on orientation day. Incidentally, this is what got the majority of our Greek life shut down.

    I have served in the military, played on football teams, lived in all male university residences and been a young lawyer at an aggressive litigation law firm.

    Unfortunately most of my experiences would get you arrested or sued these days.

    Huge amounts of alcohol, chocolate and rubber chickens were involved from time to time.

    My dutchness is definitely a factor in this, but can we all agree that "The Hague" is one of the best city names in the world? Seriously what is a hague and why does it have 'the' in front of it? Fiction has taught me that all things referred to as 'the' are badass.

    Right? The original name s'-Gravenhage is also pretty cool, but considerably more difficult to pronounce for most people. While I am at it s-Hertogenbosch (the Duke's forest) is pretty cool too.

    :pIs that a good thing or a bad thing?:confused:

    Last time I stayed up 24 hours it was to watch the sun set and then rise at the summer solstice - which for me was a good thing.
     
  11. uh probably bad

    i'm a teenager and our sleep schedule is in no way connected to the sun :p

    I just decided to stay up super late writing on a day where I'd had to get up
    at 5:30.
     
  12. I'm feeling extraordinarily restless right now.
    My mum's been making plans--I mean, suggestions--for me about what to do now that the summer's nearly over. I actually already know what I want to do: once we move, I'll volunteer at the library where my aunt works. But I don't know how to tell her this, exactly, because she might go on with "Well, yes, but..." and then I'll feel like I have to defend it, especially since we--that is, my mum--aren't/isn't 100% sure about moving to that particular place, but I already have a something, not a feeling, but something like knowing but beyond it, that we will be moving there within the next couple months.
    I really...I don't mean to be mean...it just happens, so rarely, when I'm frustrated or extremely tired.

    I also feel weary, incredibly weary, and it's not a kind of physical tiredness, either. It's more like I've lived for a thousand years...

    I'm more than ready to move.

    Wow, it's been a long weekend. Yesterday I attended a family wedding, and Saturday night I went to a Green Day concert. They've been one of my favorite bands since middle school and I still can't believe I finally got to see them live. The crowd energy was amazing. I'm not ashamed to admit that it brought me to tears when, at the end of the set, Billie Joe stood alone with his guitar in the middle of the stage and played 21 Guns and Time of Your Life/Good Riddance. Definitely a night I'll always remember.

    I'll be moving too. No later than the first week of October. Before then I'm hoping to win the best birthday gift of my life. A smart typewriter.

    There are no males in it who have a conversation about anything other than women?

  19. There are two male characters (out of a large cast) and they never interact as far as I know, let alone the topic of their interaction. So, yes, basically.

    My novella Emma's Story fails the Bechdel Test with quite a big margin, but then that's in the nature of the story: it revolves around Emma's indecision about whether she wants to marry or not.
