    so far, those plans for the Cornell Arch school don't call for the demo of Rand Hall. Not fancy nor pretty, just a big fucking chunker for working...and partying. Here is Dragon Day 1995 (or 96?). Marlin Watson and I are in there somewhere. (thanks to Zano for the pic).

      we did for a while and then Werner Goehrner made us clean it up... There even were the ruins of a smelly male stripper's outfit who had a confrontation with the gentleman in the baseball hat above.

      Kissy_Face's comment from the discussion thread on Millstein hall:

      "I remember as a fifth year thinking that the newbies looked young...until I dug up pictures of myself from first year. I looked like a 12 yr old with an xacto knife..."

      Agreed, especially considering that hideous hawaiian shirt i'm sporting. Javier, thanks for providing a Saturday-long laugh for me and my gal.

      *sigh* I miss everybody in that photo.

      hey Marlin, is this 95 or 96?
      ...You're complaining about a shirt on dragon day? Did you see my tie??

      a note: to be honest, Javier, i thought this was a photograph of "Sprinkler Day '95" (you freshman are so fucked!!!!,) but i couldn't rationalize the goggles given such a scenario. Needless to say, this evening's drinking has amplified the impact of the foto.

      Thank you so much.

      BTW: sprinkler day: you freshman are fucked!!!!

      Yea, it looks like some people are wearing goggles, which implies Sprinkler Day to me.

      Also looks a little warm for March... windows open, t-shirts on... green trees... who know though, Ithaca weather is fickle.

      Yeah... that would bea good reason to be wearing a tie... Cus I really don't think I ever wore a tie to dragon day.

      It's not sprinkler day... I think you mean picture day. and therefore the ties.

      Sep 24, 06 11:46 am  · 

      ...and the goggles.
