Saturday, February 20th was FPB's annual Nurses' Ball. After many months of planning the day finally arrived. When it was time for dinner everyone lined up dressed in fine attire and awaited their turn at the buffet; however, some had a different plan. The buffet was decorated quite lovely with fruits and vegetables as accents. Before Emily's very eyes she saw people EATING the accent food! Seriously? There was wonderful dinner selections for all pallets why eat the decor? This question remains unanswered.
Attention all: Please refrain from eating decorations at a formal event or in any setting for that matter.
Last Tuesday Emily went to Starbucks before a last minute study session. Testing her luck, yet again, she ordered her signature drink and a morning bun. Thankfully, the morning bun never touched the pavement and remained in her hand!
So, around finals time last semester Elaine, Nora, and Iva were studying in the bat cave (bat cave=where Elaine Nora and Iva think they turn into bats)(ps. you need a password to get in)(pps. no you can't have the password)(ppps. we know you want the password). They got tired of studying and decided to take a break and do what they love, bothering Emily. Rather than doing just the same-old covering all her things in post-it notes or putting scary pictures of animals in her notebooks, they decided to attack from a different angle. They created a fake email account for "Erica Samuels," and sent Emily a frantic email about an awareness dinner that she needed to get "soup" for. The email went something like this:
I hope this email finds you well. We have not heard back from you in regards to the soup for the Awareness dinner. Please pick up the forms in Nord and fill them out and turn them in as soon as possible. The soup is essential for the success of the dinner.
Please let me know when you have done this.
Rather than responding and saying "I don't know who you are or what you are talking about" Emily responds "I am unsure what forms you are referring too." Nora cleverly responds "The forms. In nord. For the soup." Emily proceeds to search for Erica on facebook and on Case's website ....and basically every search engine you can think of, and when she can't find her she frantically asks Elaine and Iva what she should do. She also expresses confusion as why an Awareness dinner would have soup rather than a "baked good" or "pasta". They tell her to email her again about the forms, and see what Erica says. Emily emailed Erica, and Nora told Emily that "The forms were due to Wes in the Greek Life Office." Emily was drafting email to Wes when Iva got cold feet and told her that it was a joke.
Side note: How ironic that a soup can fell on Emily's head a year proceeding this prank.
Recently, we heard the great news about a huge Dollar Tree opening nearby. Emily was quick to point out that Dollar Tree is the best because everything is ACTUALLY $1. Mollie agreed and began ranting about the other so-called dollar stores. Dollar General sucks because everything is just generally around $1. What is that about? Family Dollar is even worse because no one wants things that are in the family of $1. If Mollie goes into a dollar store, she expects to spend $10 and come out with 10 items. Although she usually just ends up buying the knock-off pixy stix in the neon plastic tubes or circus peanuts. We are looking forward to a shopping spree at Dollar Tree very soon.
Attention Case Western Reserve University Students: Although the weather is less than favorable, ski goggles are not necessary and frankly just ridiculous...you are walking to class not participating in the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Tonight Sarah and Emily went to support the fearless Phi Mu/Phi Delt intermural basketball team in their final game of the season before play offs. Wanting to get the ultimate sideline experience, Emily and Sarah decided to get as close as possible to the sidelines to watch the game. Emily decided she was going to run (fast) to the sideline first. As she took off she failed to realize that the ultimate frisbee team was practinging their sprinting skills a few seconds later one of the girls screamed "WATCH OUT"! Emily turned and one of the girls on the team was a few inches from her face! Emily screamed in fear and just missed being toppled over by the frisbee girl. Thank goodness a crises was averted.
