Q&A, Vol. II by Elizabeth C. '13

A sort-of guest post

Hello folks of the blogosphere! Greetings from Columbia, MO.

Now I know you are probably thinking, “Wait – but it’s the middle of April… aren’t you supposed to be in school?” which is totally a legitimate concern. But in honor of “Patriot’s Day” (I honestly never quite figured what that was all about)/It’s-the-Boston-Marathon-and-the-city’s-a-madhouse, the ‘tute annually gives us this four-day weekend. My favorite kind of weekend.

Today incidentally also happened to be my brother’s birthday AND his school’s Grandparents/Special-Friends day, so I was all, “Whateva whatva I do what I want” and flew home to surprise him.

I have tons o’ stuff I want to tell you guys about (including a video of the Simmons project in case you couldn’t come to CPW and see it for yourself), but I have to catch an early-morning flight back to MIT tomorrow. Thus, I leave you with this short video that I made tonight with the goober himself. As you can see, I spent some quality time exploiting the kid for my own personal gains hanging out with the kiddo. College is nice and all, but sometimes it’s nice to hang out with people outside the twentysomething age range…

  5. Hey Beth! He looks a lot like you! By the way I liked the part ‘What’s a dome?’- ‘A dome is aaaa BIG House for College people!’ lol. Yeah someday I might end up there (I guess)!

    @shahariar: In the video he answers to “What’s a Dorm”, not “What a ‘dome’?”

    (Simmons project?)

  8. @Phoenix

    Thanks!!! Sorry about that. I might have ‘mistyped’ it. It’s ‘Dorm’

    Okay no offense (actually I consider this a compliment), but your brother totally reminds me of:

  12. DEAR MIKEY,

    DO I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION NOW THAT I’VE BEEN TYPING IN ALL CAPS??

    Okay good. I am writing to tell you that your comment kind of freaked me out because a couple months ago, a friend from home posted that VERY SAME VIDEO on my wall saying that it reminded him of me.

    My brother really is the male, 9-year-old version of me.

    Sincerely,
    Elizabeth

    P.S. Guess what day it is
