you poker, you brought her

on friday night, one of the school organizations is...well, organizing...a texas hold 'em tournament in the cyber cafe on campus. here's the text of the announcement email that was sent last night:

"Hello everyone,

OSS is sponsoring a poker tournament in the Cyber Cafe on Friday, April 15th. There will be more information about this event in the next day or two, but before we can go any further we still need a couple more people to deal cards for the tournament. If anyone is interested in helping out please let me know. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for free drinks and possibly some other prizes. If you don't know how to deal, we can teach you!

Thanks,
[name deleted]"

please read the 4th sentence: This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for free drinks and possibly some other prizes.

therein lies the reasons people come to du. last weekend was preview weekend for newly accepted students. they had a wine and cheese reception for those students. a mere 24 hours before that, they had a wine and cheese reception for the visiting faculty. on friday night, they hosted a social at a bar. during my student orientation in september, they had a wine and cheese reception.

this is the drinkingest school i've ever known.

and i even went to college in new orleans.

the title of this post is somewhat intriguing, but that's a topic for another time. :)

as far as drinking goes, maybe your school is really great. but is your school on this list that i have right here?

ok, my school isn't either, but it's on the bonus rankings part, and it's chico state. our fraternities easily kill more pledges than yours do, you can't touch us.

moi? double entendre? never!

ah... chico state... the school us SoCal kids made fun of because... well, sorry erik, but it's in chico.

however, my school doesn't have the rep of a party school, like uga, ut, or (mercifully) cu boulder. but the amount of school-sponsored drinking is pretty ridiculous.

(and don't worry, we definitely made fun of humboldt state WAY more than chico)

well that is a poor consolation, let me tell you! why do i always have to be the guy with the crappy school??

i knew there was a reason we didn't like snobby socal kids...oh yeah, it was you! ;)

i concede defeat.

besides, my friend chris barile lives in chico... or he did. and i'd hate to be caught talking smack about chico. the two of you bringing the beatdown is more than i can take.

do you know him?!?

Erik Monday, April 11, 2005 6:27:00 pm  

the beatdown would not be pretty, i can promise you that. i don't know chris, how old is he? tell me all about him. what's he like?? if you send me an email, we can work out what your weird fascination is with this guy. hm, i really have hi-jacked your post at this point.
i'm done, i swear!

so you're going, right? if they need one more dealer, i guess i could go, if i have to. i do have several requirements though, like a crown on the rocks waiting for me when i get there. i did go to the #1 school on erik's list, after all.

btw, The Library is where all the 18-year-olds with fake IDs go. it's where me and my buddies would go to pick up gir- what? wow, i have a lot of homework to get to. look at that. bye.

heatherfeather Monday, April 11, 2005 8:43:00 pm  

they do still need dealers.

if you make it up here by 7 pm (CDT) friday, i'll buy you a BOTTLE of crown.

... they didn't list Portland Community College?!

We rank number one for toothless smokers. GO PCC! Woot! Represent!

I can deal, play, and drink w/ hold 'em.

This school is drinkier than New Orleans. I can't believe it! Does DU smell like pee, too? Hee hee.

heatherfeather Tuesday, April 12, 2005 11:38:00 am  

du does NOT, i repeat NOT smell like pee. and it's not just pee that NOLA smells like - it also smells like vomit and rotting swamp...

man, i miss it there...
