Knowing that I might get a response in time, I'm putting out an opinion question.

I have to attend an accepted students dinner this evening.  It's being hosted by current students, and my fiance cannot come.  I tend to be very shy in these kinds of situations, so I want to bring a friend and pretend he's my cousin.

Is this kind of wrong?

I'd bring your friend and just say he's your friend, but it looks like I'm late. What did you wind up doing?

I brought him and said he was my cousin.  The funniest thing was that we were both wearing flannel and jeans that day and went straight from work to the event.  We looked like such hipsters.

I felt like I had to fib a little because the event was at a relatively pricey restaurant and the invite was a little weird.  They encouraged you to bring a guest, but discouraged parents and did not exactly say friends should come.  The invite pretty much said "bring your spouse, partner or significant other."  Ultimately about half the people RSVPed yes and did not come, so it didn't matter at all.

Awesome plan.  When you start school there next fall, everyone's going to think that you married your cousin  ;) ;)

Compare the tongues on the two logos.  The original one, after many years of use, was discovered to be and deemed accidentally obscene.

Anyone see the old Kentucky logo?

Very similar.  Guess why they had to change it

Just bought my cap and gown for graduation. Let's hope I make it there ;)

Hope you enjoy graduation, vb. I wish like hell I'd been drunk for mine. Just something to keep in mind. ;)

During my UG graduation it was sweltering hot out and I got stung by a bee during the ceremony.  I wish I had been drunk so I didn't feel the pain.  On the bright side, the graduation ceremony pictures of me came out with me looking really good with a nice smile despite the pain I was feeling.  They were taken not long before I puffed up from a reaction to the bee sting. 

Congrats VB  ;D

When is the ceremony?  I thought most were in May or June or later.  You just planning way ahead to be ready?

The ceremony is in about a month and a half, I think April 22-23. We don't have a spring break, so we end pretty early.

Being deprived of spring break sucks, bordering on military boarding school type of treatment.  Glad you survived and are getting 'paroled' soon.

Even military boarding schools get spring break.

Congrats vb. Glad its finally over

Just stopping in briefly to say hey. I am in New Orleans with some friends from law school for spring break. Good times :)

While there you must visit Cafe Dumonde and have some coffee and beignets.

There is nothing like it elsewhere, it cannot be duplicated and it is incredible.

I've always had a preference for Cafe Madeline over Cafe Du Monde


I don't know how you could possibly pass up Miami with that $$$. You're going to be getting a great quality of life in Florida.  Miami is absolutely spectacular.

You're sitting pretty either way

Maybe s/he doesn't want to live in Miami.  Seems pretty realistic to me - I'd hate to live there.  Figure out which city you prefer.

One of my buddies said "@#!* Johnny Cash..." and then gave a great analysis on why someone should do just that.  It was stunning.  /world upside down.

Today I got a Chicago style hot dog and requested spicy mustard.  It was loaded with spicy mustard....... And the standard yellow mustard.  Wouldn't most people assume that if you ask for a different type of mustard, that you're implicitly stating in lieu of - opposed to in addition?  ???  The taste of both mustards was quite strange.

The older we get, the idea of wiping the slate clean and starting over again because less less possible (impossible).  I would switch your mindset from "how do I start over with no consequences" to "how do I try to work hard to make the best out of a less than desirable situation".
