Curry and The Campus Voice Article
I get to the Great Ides-of-October Mystery Event, which was a tribute
to Graham Chapman, how about a fun interlude?
definition of curry was tucked into my journal with no explanation.
Perhaps I had intended to slip it into the newsletter but never found
space for it:
(kûr'e) n.pl. -ries 1. Curry powder. 2. A heavily spiced
relish or sauce made with curry powder and eaten with rice, meat,
fish, or other food. 3. A dish seasoned with curry powder.
is the significance of lemon curry in today's modern society? We often
take for granted the spicy things in life that make things more enjoyable.
We fail to relish our good experiences (such as when we're sauced),
and we powder over our good times with a rice-white melodrama. We
don't have any meat in our lives (a prospect that seems fishy to me),
and we don't take enough time for food for thought. What is the world
coming to when small children can yell "Ni!" at old grandmothers?
I'd rather stuff them full of lemon curry so that they'll shut up.
since I'm already off-topic, I may as well mention here that this
was the month an article on us appeared in the national publication
The Campus Voice. It was a poster-sized publication that could
be posted in the student centers or dorms of colleges around the nation,
and our particular article was posted in a stairwell at the Hetzel
student union building (the HUB), a stairwell which no longer exists.
The poster does exist, however, rolled up in a box of old posters
in my apartment.
for awhile on my dorm room wall, but since I didn't care about the
other articles, I covered them up with aluminum foil and Monty Python
never terribly thrilled about the fact that they used a picture of
the bra removal event from the Upperclass Twit of the Year sketch
as their illustration, but we didn't have any control over that. None
of the guys in MPS complained. Funny, that.
