Where’s It At with LMM

February 24, 2017

She’s really outdone herself this time!

It Happened to Me: I got a Radio Show, and Now I’m a Tool

February 24, 2017
Because I'm not clever enough to make my own meme...via google images, biznatches

It all started this summer. I was at the gym  back home as part of my resolution to get “bikini body ready” to show all of my Kenyon comrades that I beat the crap out of the “freshman fifteen.” As I’m running on the elliptical and sweatin’ my little heart out, I receive a text from one of my good friends. She wants to start a radio show for our sophomore year. We spend the rest of the summer exchanging ideas, sharing articles, and watching podcasts to get inspired. This is what I need, I whisper, a wholesome sophomore year.

Meet a PC: Ari Tooch ’19

February 24, 2017

Every week, The Thrill features a member of a student-support organization to bring awareness about the various resources available to the student body on campus. This week, we’re featuring Ari Tooch ’19.  Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.

If you want to speak to a PC, they have Office Hours in the new Health and Counseling Center. Drop by and talk to a PC every Sunday-Thursday, 7-9 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays 5:30-7:30 p.m. Or call their 24/7 hotline at 740-398-3806.

Cats or Dogs?
 Dogs. Dogs hands down. I don’t trust cats. I read somewhere that “weaker” people like dogs because they provide constant, consistent love, and I believe it, lol. I thrive on constant emotional validation, and cats are too particular. I know whenever I’m home, my dogs will give me kisses and cuddles no matter how tired or grumpy they are. I don’t have time to wait for a cat to warm up to me.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
Best meal I’ve ever eaten, dang this is a hard one. I really, really love eating. Part of the reason why I love Los Angeles, my hometown, is because there is such a large variety of food. I think I have to go with my favorite restaurants in LA, one a Japanese place and one an Italian place. There’s this whole in a wall Japanese place by my house with the best udon and vegetable tempura that I’ve ever had (mostly because I dont eat fish and I keep kosher). I go there all the time with my best friends from home. The other place is an Italian place in Beverly Hills, which sounds extra but I ate there the first time for my Friday night Bat Mitzvah service. I loved it mostly because my grandma got super drunk and told me how proud she was of me. They also have really good chicken marsala.

When was the last time you laughed really hard?

These are hard questions! I’m very loud and I laugh a lot. I think the time I laugh the most is when I’m on the phone with my mom. We have a very specific humor, and I can twist the most mundane situations into funny events to tell her. So I’ll talk to her about something that’s bothering me, and in explaining it to her it’ll turn into something so hysterical that we’ll both be cracking up.

I Refuse To Donate To Kenyon College Until They Acknowledge The Academic Value Of McDonald’s Lore

February 23, 2017


The four years I’ve spent here at Kenyon College, this bucolic intellectual wonderland, have been some of the most special of my life. I’ll be walking away from graduation this spring with a profound conceptual toolbox with which to approach the world. However, as I leave the campus behind, I’m left with a sour taste in my mouth and a painful awareness of this school’s inexcusable shortcomings. That’s why, after much thought, I refuse to donate any money to the college until they do what’s right and acknowledge the academic value of McDonald’s lore.

It’s happening again, my dudes. The Fools on the Hill are back to take over The Thrill for one day and one day only. Now they are the Fools on the Thrill and you better be shitting yourself with excitement. Or fear. Who knows what’s going to happen! I sure don’t!

Oh and go see their show tomorrow:

Friday, February 24th, 9pm, Philo.

Deep breaths. Here we go.


10 o’clock list: Things I Want To Major In

February 22, 2017


Good news: Kenyon offers a lot of great classes, and I’ve enjoyed the ones I’ve taken so far. Bad news: I haven’t found that one subject I’m ready to commit to just yet. I know I have plenty of time until I have to declare, but I’m feeling a little lost. I was told it helps to make a list of interests, so here’s my list of potential majors at this point:

  • Telling people how much I like Lady Gaga’s album ARTPOP.
  • Drinking a literal gallon of water a day.
  • Realizing that I’m really hungry thirty minutes after the Market closes.

Peirce Hack: Rice Krispie Treat Sundae

February 22, 2017

rice krispies have lots of iron so this is healthy i think????

Ah, the Peirce dessert station. I’m continually grateful for your mini pies and never ending supply of dessert eggs, but sometimes a girl needs to switch it up. Although the dessert area often has Rice Krispies and other types of cereal bars, there’s nothing that can beat the melty, marshmallowy goodness of a freshly made Rice Krispie treat. While we’re still waiting for a microwave to arrive (@AVI Chris 👀), here’s a simple way to recreate the gooeyness of this dessert with added ice cream because why the hell not.
