so I don't get what the deal is with people saying "Happy New Year." It's been 13 days, guys, but people around here are still saying it. At what point does it cease being a New Year? I mean, if you haven't seen the guy in awhile, say "hey man, how've you been?" not "hey let's refer to this holiday that happened a couple weeks ago." It's dumb.

And I wrote about cake pong at GW a little while ago, which was pretty funny, but it turns out there was a good reason - the students who had the party thought that UPD had busted an earlier party of theirs by finding out about it on Facebook, so they advertised the party all over Facebook, then duped the cops by having only cake and no alcohol. They did spell out the word "beer" on the cakes, and wrote "I love beer" on their shirts and stuff. The New York Times, of all places, reports about Facebook being used to bust students, and the party organizer's Facebook page has some funny pictures of the party (you may need to be a Facebook member to see it). The photo of the angry cop is the best - note the laughing girl behind him. My alma mater has some clever people.

Happy New Year, dude!

I think we get most of the month of January...at least 2 weeks.
