As if the graveyard of empty pizza boxes I store underneath my XL twin bed frame needed any new corpses, Domino’s has finally decided to jump on the K-Card bandwagon. Beginning right the heck now, you can order hot, fresh, flavor-blasted Domino’s pizzas (cooked especially for you in the corporation’s Mount Vernon location) using that weird plastic rectangle you scan on your dorm’s card reader each and every night.

The steps to achieve Domino’s-Induced PizzaBliss™ were sent out via email earlier today. According to Mark Kohlman, the process goes a little something like this:

1. Enter your address
2. Select your desired food items
3. Go to Checkout
the next couple of steps are critical
4.  Enter your K-card # in the box labeled:  DELIVERY INSTRUCTIONS
5.  Select Payment Information:  PAY WITH CASH UPON DELIVERY (you won’t have to pay with cash upon delivery if you entered you K-card # as instructed in #4.
6. Select Place Order
7. Wait
8. Enjoy your food
Sound simple? It is! Happy eating, folks.

Peirce Hack: Dessert Egg

August 30, 2016

So pure (via food.com)

Whether you’re a first-year or not, by now you’ve figured out that Peirce Hall is a magical place with seemingly endless food options available to you throughout the day. But as we get – nay, grow – older we become less and less enchanted with what Peirce has to offer. There are some days where Peirce just isn’t doing enough for you, where no combination of foods (plated or otherwise) can satisfy your insatiable hunger. Enter: the Peirce hack. The Peirce hack is any combination of actions and foods that cause your friends to say “Oh man, I wish I had thought of that!” when you come back to your table in the dining room. Today’s Peirce hack? The dessert egg. Read more…

Hello, hello, hello, queer humans and allies of Kenyon College! To those who are returning to us, welcome back, and to all you freshmen out there, welcome! This is ♦ Queer 101 ♦, The Thrill’s main source for all things LGBTQIA+! Since a bunch of new people have just arrived on campus from many, many different places, this week’s post is going to be a big overview of the different ways people might identify within the queer community, where you can go to learn about identities you’ve never heard of before, and how you can respect a person’s sexual orientation/gender even though you might not know too much about what it is. So let’s all sit down, grab a blanket, and dig in to some nice, warm alphabet soup (of the queer persuasion, of course). Side note: you might want to go where there’s air conditioning for this one. I personally don’t really like drinking scalding soup in eighty plus degree weather. Also, the following lists are in no particular order.

Her catchup-y spires beckon you

Welcome back, kids. Geez you grow up so quickly. You look so well rested and tan and stress free. Oh how I yearn for those blithe times; I have since pupated from squishy, tender frosh to crusty sophomore. What do the youth even do these days? Do you listen to your pop star holograms on those iPods? *sigh* Here are some thoughts on the this weekend’s cheerful jaunts.

Leonard smelled like regret and shame. The stench of alcohol stung my soul.
