Yea to it maybe finally being spring. Actually scratch that, you all know it’s going to be rain clouds and sad faces from here on out.
Nay to all the children who think that just because it is sunny and warmer than 45 degrees, it gives them a right to break out the bro-tanks and shorts. You’re going to catch a cold. Put a sweater on.
Yea to a great start to the Beaver baseball season. We’re looking forward to the series this weekend.
Nay to not being able to drink beer in Goss Stadium. We know why the rule is there, and we guess we understand it, but we really just want some cold beer to wash down our hot dog while watching some baseball. Is that really so much to ask?
Yea to Girl Scouts.
Nay to all the extra calories we are consuming because we are unable to resist their insanely good sales tactics when it comes to selling cookies.
Yea to watching the British version of “House of Cards” after watching the American one. More plots, more intrigue, more evil soliloquies to the camera.
Nay to using “House of Cards” as a guide to your life.
Yea to spending hours of your life sitting through committee and board meetings where nothing important is said and nothing important is accomplished. Some days we wish the eye rolls and the generally unpleasant demeanor would be taken for what it is — not wanting to have our time wasted by being there.
Nay to people comparing the new logo to (insert rodent name here). Guess what, the beaver is a rodent, in fact the second largest in the world, so naturally it is going to look a little like a rodent.
Yea to the new uniforms. We like the all white football ones and the new gloves. We also like the soccer uniforms and can’t wait to see the spring sports outfits.
Meh to the new logo. We want old happy Benny back with his goofy sailor cap, but we know it’s not going to happen. While this one is better than the last and we know folks are going to complain, we just don’t feel too strongly one way or the other.
Yea to new Cool Ranch Doritos Tacos. The late night Taco Bell run just got that much cooler.
Nay to it being week nine.
Yea to it being week nine.
Nay to falling behind in your classes and scrambling the last two weeks to catch up.
Yea to not showing up to a class for two weeks, taking the multiple choice test, getting an “A” on it and continuing on your journey toward slacker heaven.
Yea to bacon. And not the lab-grown bacon. We’re talking right off the pig.
Yea to it being Friday. Go study, throw some Barometers in the air while walking by Bexell, and get down with some Al Green playing in the background. Remember, we’ll be watching, children. Stay frosty.
