Overheard at Kenyon: Spring, The Market, and Poop

Springtime in Gambier means the weirdos come out to play.

Welcome to the Beginning of Spring edition of Overheard. Remember, we have ears everywhere. Enjoy!

Jaded All-Stu Student: “I’m not on the dislist for my family. I have to get everything forwarded to me by my mom.”

All-Too-Hip Market Cashier: “Is tonight Wednesday night? Is tonight drunk night?”

Weekend Playlist: Surviving ‘Til Spring

We were so close guys.  So close.  Here I was, planning on breaking out the flips flops and shorts and basking in that glorious sunlight as it showered down on us.  But then it snowed…and it rained…and crushed my hopes that we’d finally made it to gorgeous spring weather.  Here’s some stuff to remind you that there actually is a time of the year when the sun isn’t covered by a layer of clouds thicker than a concrete milkshake.

So, not to start things out too on the nose, but:

Waiting for the Sun– The Doors

Could I have found a different cover of this song?  Yes.  Would it satisfy my urge to use college resources to post Pogues songs?  You tell me.

But the jubilations are tainted somewhat with fear as to what lies ahead: SWIMSUIT SEASON.  You’ve been surviving on a steady diet of Cove food and cheap beer, and while you aren’t unhealthy, there is a thin veneer of winter blubber that has remained stealthily hidden from view by poofy down jackets (and no one blames you; you survived the Polar Vortex goddam it, you deserve to eat however you want!). For those of you looking to get back to fighting shape, here are a few ways you can get that bod ready for the beach, without actually making that trek down to the KAC, which is really all the workout you would have needed anyways.

1. Pray for more snow: As Alexander Graham Bell said (paraphrasing), “If you’re too lazy to get in shape for real, just make sure you never have to show off your body, like ever.
