Hey Sexy People!

Hope reading week treated you well and you had many a-sexalicious par-tay while absent from the ‘loo. This week I’m taking a short non-commercialized break from your regularly scheduled sexytimes adventure to give a little PSA. No, it’s not a public service announcement, it’s a particularly sexy addendum! Firstly, I’ll be addressing and subtractressing the fantastic events in Vancouver, and nextly I’ll let you in on my secret to having a happy week of not much reading.

Are you pumped about the Olympic games? If you aren’t, maybe you should be. They’re almost over, but you still have a chance to cheer if you haven’t already. After all, the athletes that represent our country at these mighty competitions, and the people that staff them, are setting an example for the rest of the world as to just how attractive this big mountainous country of ours really is, and the quality of the fine ladies and gentlemen coming out of these parts. Many people will assume that just because our homeland has much snow, that we will dominate this season’s events. If you pay attention though, you will notice that not everything is a piece of pie (seriously, pie beats cake every day). Appearances are not always what they… appear. For us here in Waterloo, the few good sports to watch are the homeland favorites, Curling and Hockey. Seriously, did you see that final for the Canadian curlers?  Those boys and girls were on fire for the entire tournament, and they go relatively unnoticed by people who watch the more jazzy sports of Ski and Snowboard. As well, what better way to pass the time than to cheer on our Hockey team, made up of friends and countrymen (and women!) who started off with a bang in the early games. The finals are sure to be exciting, so even if you don’t like Hockey, watch them! In short, there’s something exciting to watch for everyone at the ‘Lympics, so don’t miss these once-in-a-lifetime (for something that lives for 3 years and 364 days) events.

That brings us to the free vacation week that has been granted to us lowly engineering undergrads from up on high. What did you do with your reading week? Party it up, go on vacation, or slave away on your projects and labs? Whatever you did, I hope you took some time out to recharge your mental capacitors because the storm of final exams is a-coming and they’re not far off the starboard bow. If you didn’t get a chance to partake in any luxurious activities, next year you could try one of these:

-Write a children’s book. Everyone loves short stories with pictures and rhymes! You can do it in a week right?

-Go on an adventure.  A road trip, even down the road to stock up on frozen pizzas, will cure your winter blues, reds and yellows.

-Throw a themed party. Dressing up and having a wild night is hilarious, just don’t pick ‘regular clothes’ as a theme.

-Build a skating rink in your backyard. Don’t have a backyard? Do it in your kitchen! Your absent roomies will love the surprise.

-Try to set the world record for sleeping. Remember, comas don’t count, so don’t lose sleep focus or let people think you’ve kicked the bucket.

Next week we’ll be back with the exciting conclusion to the Adventures of Chad and the Mountain Man.

Until then,

Stay Sexy!
