Things overheard on the Common’s Lawn

Were you aware that Biology is the least Biblical degree, according to a random person on Commons this afternoon?

…Just food for thought for you science nerds.

None of these things are Biblical

Oh, the stati you will read…

All the stress, tension and name-calling is now at an end. If you don’t believe how much stress is being released right now then you obviously do not have a Facebook account or have not checked your friend’s stati in awhile. EVERYONE IS FREAKING OUT!

A few of my favorite amusing and “WTF?” generating stati from friends (names withheld)…

“_____ is definately moving now”

“____ can finally breathe”

“______ knows why all the conservatives are moving to liberal Canada, they want to drink their sorrows away”


“_____Rock out with your Barack out”

“______ is very sad for unborn/would be Americans” [i can’t decide whether this is about the election or Mi.’s proposal 2 (go science!)]

“______Obama-rama and marijuana”

“_____can’t believe all you dumbass Democrats! Just wait big big big mistake!…Fuck! Obambas the anti-christ!”

“_____ is scared for the next four years…maybe I’ll leave the country?”

“_____ is, you betcha”

Now, if I truly wanted to live up to my reputation of pwning Christians with their own Bible, (since most of these quotes are from my fellow Calvin students), I could compose a little sermonette about not having “a spirit of fear” and the two cities…but I’m really just too amused right now. Anyone else witness some worthy freak outs?

Things overheard: Tatooed Creatures

I normally don’t eavesdrop on people, except for under certain circumstances. I’m never going to see many complete strangers I see on a daily basis around my town again, and I never look at the people (I’ll close my eyes or pretend to read and never look at their face). Weird justifications for my behavior? Probably, but you can hear fantastic conversations this way (especially at Calvin).

So here’s a tibit I overheard while at a Grosse Pointe park, poolside with a friend. I had my eyes closed and two stay at home moms were on our left chatting about what they bought their kids for their dorm rooms. Apparently, God is a garage sale enthusiast according to one of the women.

But after the second one walked away the first exclaimed to her son, “Where did all these tattooed creatures come from?!” She had exclaimed this in response to a man who had walked in who had a sleeve. I made sure to flaunt my own tat as I walked by too.

Kaydonthedinosaur= a tattooed creature.
