Get Me Outta Here!

Vassar will be providing shuttles to the train station tomorrow on the hour from 8am to 6pm from Main Circle.

The weather is supposed to be nicer than it was today, in case you're flying home.

Enjoy your time off!

When you leave, please remember Thanksgiving is not a celebration for some, who remember all the poor Native peoples who were killed by the white man.

We sing
For the eagle

No thanks
For your racism

We are the world
We are the children

Fight the good fight and get rid of the racism people!!!!!!! Yeah!

Yep, colonization sucked.
Though I've never once given thanks to the settlers for clearing the land, I *do* give thanks for my family and health. That's it.

Yeah, modern celebrations of Thanksgiving really have very little, if anything, to do with its history.

Every year, when my family gathers around the table and holds hands to say the Thanksgiving Grace, I thank God for Manifest Destiny, my white skin, and the fact that Central America cannot control its own economy.

Happy Thanksgiving Break, everyone! Go Team America!

Even though I'm a vegetarian, I like Thanksgiving.
I get to see my family, play soccer with my sisters, and play he-said-she-said.

here's how you play he-said-she-said:

everyone has a paper and a pen

everyone writes the name of a male character at the top and folds the paper so its hidden and passes it

the next person writes a female character and folds and passes

the next person writes where they meet (fold and pass F&P)

the next person writes HE SAID, "________" F&P

then, what she said F&P

finally, the ending F&P

after the last pass, each person takes turns one by one unfolding their paper and reading the story. ____ met ______ at ________. He said ________. SHe said ________. And then _________.

Enjoy! Its a really good family tradition, along with watching Center Stage.

Watching Center Stage is the greatest of all possible traditions. Has anyone seen the new one?

Ok. This thread pisses me off. Just be thankful for what you have.

Not everything has to be fucking class war bullshit.


Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I have to think the first comment was a joke. We are the world we are the children? Maybe making fun of the Columbus Day protesters or the general race stuff at Vassar.
