    Is this a 3-day weekend?

    If the amount of dormies that appear to be loading up their vehicles for a trip home is any indication, not sure there will be much of a showing in cyclone alley for the game tomorrow. Usually when I see this exodus on a Friday afternoon it means there is a long weekend or break happening.


    There was one?

    Not sure why everyone is leaving like that, there won't be another break until spring break in March.

    Usually when a lot of people have a tough exam or two in a week they take the weekend to go home. That said I don't know about any exams this week

    Maybe they don't want to wear pink.

    Even though the athletic department is encouraging all of us to, I am lukewarm with it...

    About time to bring the laundry home for the parents? I know that's why my roommate left today I'm only staying because of the game tomorrow.

    Just do it! it's for a good cause and if anyone gives you crap about it, they obviously don't care about what the cause is for!

    That being said...I know that a lot of the business classes had tests this week...not sure about any of the other colleges

    There are a TON of engineering tests next week. And I know of quite a few tests in the sciences as well. That being said, why go home to study? In my vast experience, going home isn't all that productive. I usually end up studying for about 5 minutes and then playing COD on my xbox the rest of the weekend.


    Although it is also superbowl weekend. Going home to watch the game in HD on a 70" TV and being able to turn up the surround sound without worrying about the neighbors complaining all while eating home cooked food on soft leather furniture sounds really tempting right now. A vast improvement over 35" with 3 speakers and a fail-sub on a rock hard couch while eating frozen pizza(or jeffs/gumbys for that matter).


    You can't die. That would upset the equilibrium in the Cave.

    I love how the CoB always gets exams nice and lined up so you get pummeled. Next hell week: week before spring break.

    Also, if you didn't know, I'm the one who reffed your intramural game with the two waste of life girls.
