Darts & Laurels

For starters, we'd like to award UF and the Gainesville area for their efforts to "go green" with a we-don't-know-what-sustainability-means-but-we'll-do-it-if-Luda-does LAUREL. The local community has made sincere efforts to be environmentally conscious, and we're all for communities that are pro-Earth.

To lead off, we'd like to shoot a get-your-hand-outta-my-face-and-just-mind-your-business DART at college admissions officers for using students' Facebook profiles to help decide whether a particular student is right for a school.

Building Up

If you've lived in Gainesville for the past few years, you've grown accustomed to constant construction work. We know we have.It just wouldn't be the same to sleep through an entire night without hearing a construction worker barking at one of his coworkers over the sound of a concrete-obliterating jackhammer.

Darts & Laurels

To kick things off this week, we'd like to hand a this-is-a-tradition-we-can-stand-by LAUREL to the Great Underwear Dash 8. We can't believe this thing has persisted for eight separate installations, but we're glad it has. Our only real concern is, if the Undie Dash maintains its current momentum, original Dashers will return in 30 years, strip to their unmentionables and participate in the GUD 38.

Ctrl+Z: Retractions won’t undo previous damage

For the handful of Gators who don't already know, the drunk-dial is an irresponsible and detestable habit. Drunk-dialing usually occurs after midnight, expressing some feeling or idea that is normally buried beneath sobriety, shame and instincts of self-preservation. The next morning regret sets in, and the dialer typically tries to deny the message he or she could only blurt out while under the influence.

Bringing Sexy Back

While tuning in to see Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's acceptance speech, we are almost positive that everyone was hanging on her every word, transfixed by her persuasive political statements and promises of change.
