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!

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

Spare me. (via huffingtonpost.com)

It’s Easter! Yay! Here’s what I wanted in my Easter Basket…

  • A whole pizza with extra pepperoni
  • Two-liter bottle of Sierra Mist
  • Whoppers Robin’s Eggs things
  • Some Peeps (not those Peeps, these Peeps)

  • A Cove gift card (which I will probably spend on chicken tenders and cheese fries)
  • Maybe a lasagna

The Definitive Guide to Deliverable Pizza in Gambier

Which delivery pizza is the best? The Thrill investigates… (via about.com)

Pizza, contrary to to the belief of the editors at the New York Times Magazine, is a food of the gods. Deliverable pizza is the food of the gods. Unfortunately, not all pizza places deliver and even those that do deliver don’t always deliver, if you know what we mean. The single pie delivery pizza options in Gambier are slim pickings, but we’ve reviewed the options (a plain pie from Domino’s, Papa John’s, Dirko’s and the Cove) and compiled both a ranking and a taste/cost profile of each pie.
