Like many women, I quickly realized that the only thing that could be more thrilling than pouring the period blood from my DivaCup down the drain was pouring a DivaCup shot of alcohol down my throat. Here are some period-themed shots to take out of your menstrual cup to make that time of the month just a little more fun and flirty.
Hello, everyone it is I, the Quiz Goblin! I’ve made a quiz for any and all of us who have ever asked the question, “If I was a structure on this campus, what structure would I be, and why?” And haven’t we all been there?
Our beloved Cove is no more, and no group of students has felt this loss quite like The Thrill. To try to cope, I have gone through every list of pitches the staff has created since I’ve been a writer here (that’s 3.5 years kids! Damn near an eternity in Kenyon time) and plucked the best cove-related ideas we’ve come up with and can no longer write. If you’re thinking, “Hey, this sounds like a half-assed post! You just copied and pasted what other people wrote!” then you’d be right. Anyways, here they are:
1. “Cove people react to real life.” Ok, to be fair, we could still do this, especially now that “Cove people” have to face “real life.” But writing it now would be more like capturing widespread “Teen Mom”-esque “haHA EVERYTHING IS FINE I’M NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING” panic and not “16 and Pregnant”-type “Wait WHAT IS THIS? I’m excited and scared at the same time!” panic. Continue reading
So we’re all super bummed about the Cove being torn down. In a news bulletin sent out by the college via email on January 22, they gave us this reason for its untimely demise:
With a long-term vision to enhance student residential life and
promote the small-scale charm of the village of Gambier, Kenyon has
decided to not renew a lease for the Gambier Grill.
We at The Thrill put our thinking caps on and came up with some really fantastic and innovative ideas for bringing back that “small scale charm” of Gambier, since we clearly don’t have it. Forget the Cove; these strategies will surely bring back the charm of the good ol’ days.
- Sword Fights At High Noon. Here in Gambier, there are very few places for entertainment, and with the Cove gone, people might get the idea in their heads that going off campus is a better alternative. With sword fights to the death, people will be intrigued to stay downtown and find out which one of their classmates will not be helping with that group project. Continue reading
In an email sent to the student body earlier this morning, President Sean Decatur answered questions about the shut down of the Gambier Grill, colloquially known as the Cove. President Decatur claims that an agreement between the college and Andy Durbin (the owner of the Cove) has been in the works for quite some time, as Durbin made it clear he no longer wanted to run the restaurant. The college offered several “financial incentives” to Durbin in order to keep the Cove open until the end of the school year; however, Durbin rejected these offers and announced this weekend that the Cove’s doors were closing.
The Gambier Grill, known to students as the Cove, just completed its last weekend of operation. Images and videos have spread via social media of chairs being thrown against the wall and of goodbyes being said to the proprietors. Continue reading
Pictured above is the beautiful golden fried wedge of mac n’ cheese that we all know and love. However, after an 11 PM phone call to the Cove last night, Friday, November 13, I discovered that mac n’ cheese wedges are now–Mac n’ cheese BITES.
