The Friday Mustard

Hello, hello! The campus is once again bustling with activity. Finals are coming up, and papers are being written, study guides are being crafted. It’s always strange how everyone comes back from break more tired than they were before, isn’t it? Sometimes too much rest is a bad thing, or at least a lonely thing. The campus was resting, too. It was too empty. The classrooms creaked with disuse, the KAC’s glow in the distance seemed dimmer than usual. I’m so glad we’re all back. It’s the Friday Mustard. Continue reading

Hello, hello. Before you all pack up your rucksacks with mustard memorabilia and flock to the airports, let your old pal Friday say goodbye. It’s going to be a lonely week on campus without you all, that’s for sure. Long, cold nights full of turkey ghosts and old flames coming back to haunt me. Ol’ Mustard has too many demons rattling around his bones. Time to sleep for a while, I suppose. Time to rest. Here’s what’s happening this weekend, mustard-wise! Continue reading

Hello, hello. What’s happening in the mustard world? If only you could understand. Mustard Rick made a comment at work that just ruined me for the rest of the day. It was just one of those things, you know? One of those little things that he probably didn’t even think about before he said it. But he said it anyway, and here I am, hurting. Why is it that Mustard Rick can get away with that and I can’t?  It must be so liberating to say whatever you feel like saying, whenever you feel like it. But I’m not allowed to do that, no, not sweet little me. I have to keep it all in, push it down down down deep where nobody goes. It’s the Friday Mustard. Continue reading

Hello hello again, shapoop it’s me again. The Friday Mustard. What’s happening this weekend? Judging by the fact that my mustard flesh is slowly oranging, I sense that Hallowe’en is drawing near. If I may humbly suggest a costume for the merriment of this weekend: how about a tube of mustard? Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, yk? Anyway, here’s what’s a-happinin’ this weekend: Continue reading
