A Wild Ride: Domino’s Driver Turned Uber for A Night

og-image

The Domino’s man looked lonely.

The night of PEEPs Halloween, I made my way out of Old Kenyon and through the crowd of smoke and people into the mostly empty parking lot beside the building. I was still a little bit disoriented, my ears were ringing and my glasses were still fogged a bit, and in my efforts to try and find the direction of Middle Path from the back of Old K, I saw the glow of the Domino’s sign on top of a delivery car. I went up to the pizza guy, and I made sure that he wasn’t white. If he was, I would’ve completely abandoned this idea, but he wasn’t, so I soldiered on.

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.

Blog Off: Preston ’17 vs Potter ’17

We like to stay pretty competitive here at The Thrill, and a Blog Off is one way we can definitively prove that one of us is objectively a better blogger (dare we say, a better person).  So we leave it to you, the reader, to decide in a blind taste test who is really better as we square off on various topics. This time around, we have Gracie Potter ‘17 and Natasha Preston ‘17, two juniors battling it out RE: Papa John’s vs. Domino’s. Who will come out on top? Only you can decide.

Blogger A:

Let’s take a page out of Huey Lewis and the News’s book and go “back in ti-eeem. You’re hosting your first real sleepover, a thoroughly carpeted affair involving karaoke, board games and the heavy scent of Smacker’s flavored lip gloss. Your parents are in rare form; they haven’t bothered you since they whisked away your friends’ boots and coats and returned with a full bowl of Lay’s sour cream and onion chips. Your friends have already marvelled at your finished basement, and they’ve chosen their respective sleeping territories without kicking up much of a fuss in the process. This is going great, your tiny, pea-sized tweenage brain thinks. I could really be somebody after this.

Onesies of Gambier

You’ve seen Gambier Ink in all its forms, but have you ever wondered what else our students have in common that they adorn themselves with? We present to you: Onesies of Gambier.

I have gotten a lot of comments while wearing my onesie. Some were good and some were just funny like when Peter Granville said that I looked spicy. Coming from him, that was an amazing moment. A lot of people will see me and say “Yes! All of the yes!” or “I love this.” One girl did make biting gestures at me once though. – JaLon Eason ’17

10 o’clock list: Plausible Peirce Pizza Creations

Pizza muffins apparently do exist elsewhere, as evidenced by my Google search. (via kuchen2015.xyz)

God bless Peirce Hall. Behind those heavy wooden doors lies a world of culinary experimentation unsurpassed by the most modern molecular gastronomy. Recently, special attention seems to have been paid to the Hearth station, where Chef Meagan seems to enjoy concocting exciting pizza-themed starches, as exemplified by last semester’s pizza muffin, and last Friday’s pizza waffle. But why stop there? Here, I give my humble opinions for some delicacies that could tickle the pizza-prone palate of any college student.

1. Pizza semifreddo. This Italian dessert could translate into a three-part frozen mousse: marinara, mozzarella, and essence of Canadian bacon. Together they’d make a frozen concoction that could be served either on a big cookie, or a savory cracker!

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

that is just so me right now

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: Continue reading
