10 o’clock list: Facebook Pages to Capture the Kenyon Experience

that is just so me right now

If there’s something I “like,” it’s a good Facebook interest page. GET IT? Nice! My favorite ones are the kind that manage to capture universal experiences, states of being, desires, etc. while still managing to be incredibly specific. For example, some pages that I like on Facebook include: Wearing sweater vests just to feel FLY, I love hugging boys that smell good and Being Socially Awkward, none of which are related AT ALL to ANY period in MY life, especially NOT one that is STILL GOING ON.

Anyway, I realized that many of my Facebook interests could definitely be converted to really get at some fundamental truths of the Kenyon experience, for example:

  1. Dropping out of school to become a cat -> Dropping out of school to become one of the many feral cats that live in Gambier, heck, you probably don’t even have to drop out
  2.  I hate it when I’m making a milkshake and boys just show up in my yard -> I hate it when I’m making a milkshake and I run out of milk and shake           and also I’m Nite Bites.*
  3. Dumping your boyfriend because he isn’t pizza -> Dumping your boyfriend because he isn’t Cove
  4. Meowing at cats until they meow back -> Woofing at Market Dogs until they woof back

*I love you Nite Bites and I’m so happy you’re popular with all your cool new friends and I’m still sorry about that one time I left you a voice mail where I maybe cried about milkshakes a little bit.

  1. Elizabeth, you write with too much pretense. If you look at the greatest comedians of our generation (Louis C.K., Bill Burr, etc), they don’t assume that their audience thinks they’re hilarious (like you do). Your humor should speak for itself. There is no need for a “wink and a nod” every time you make a funny. Kenyon students might think youre the best, but when you have a real audience, you’re going to get burned.
