v.1 (Yiddish) to complain

Dear Smoker’s Advocate: I’m not sure what you’re eating, but my lunch doesn’t come with a surgeon general’s warning. I’m also concerned you don’t really understand “toxic chemicals.” Or trees. Sincerely, ConcernedChemist

To the girl from the third floor who left a metric ton of expired candy in the first floor lounge: you’re the worst specimen to ever walk the face of this planet.

Note to fraternity groups for Halloween attire on Franklin Street this year: Start stocking up on sensible dark blue dresses, pearl strands, blond Annie wigs and those formidable horn-rimmed no-nonsense glasses impervious to LGBT issues.

There are no sports gods.

I could do homework, but I could also go to Open Eye and chat it up with the local bands.

To my feminist theory classmates: you’re great, but please try to keep the snapping to a minimum in our 9 a.m.

Is it normal to be so sleepy that you can’t manage to swipe a debit card for the coffee you need to wake up?
