Weekend Recap: Jurassic, Foam, and More

Unfortunately, this weekend did not start on a Wednesday given the tropical downpour that trapped Nest-goers indoors because their housemates thought the rain a good excuse to curl up and watch Dexter. Thursday passed in the same depressing mode, but Wesleyan stepped up to the plate on Friday, serving up a rowdy crowd at the packed Jurassic Park screening at the Goldsmith Family Cinema. Enthusiastic sophomore Trevor Dorn-Wallenstein ’15 even dressed the part in a dino onesie. Good for him.

An hour after movie-goers stumbled out of the family cinema, people began to congregate at Senior Fauver and whatever silent party was going on on Fountain. Digression: What is up with Fountain this year? Where are the fun parties? And the extremely loud speakers? And people dancing on tables who are not bad dancers in leggings and crop tops? The most fun I’ve had on Fountain this year was that brief moment when PSafe (coming through to “move us along” out of the streets) took pity on me and humored my request to blast his radio for two seconds. Moving on: Cross was popping, briefly. Shaqapulco had a DJ installed next to a plant and a strobe playing grindy music which kept the jock-and-freshman crowd carry on off-tune. It was hot and steamy and sweaty and great. Not as hot and steamy and rainforest-like as the Gote Room Party at Eclectic last Senior Week, but nothing can rival that kind of tropical.

Saturday started off with confusion when study types at Sci Li were puzzled by the disappearance of the snazzily upholstered, 60s-inspired “puzzle” chair that they no doubt texted a vote for. The P-Safe Bulletin Board has no updates on the matter at this time, but an anonymous tipster confirms being confused at seeing the chair “next to the stop sign opposite Sci Li” with a sign that said “something about selling seats…  and souls.”

Later, Middle East Studies people headed to the WIRAC International Relations conference on the Arab-Iranian Cold War, where students who had perhaps taken too much flu medication were happy when the break came along and they could stuff their faces with the variety of cookies on offer in a failed attempt to wake up. Very much later that night, the Fountain backyards were spewing foam outdoors and people were blowing it all over the place:

Some were even diving right in. In the cold:

An elegant attempt to adapt to the changing weather was Madeline McEntire ’13‘s monochromatic ensemble, cut through with a heavy gold lattice-hem:

Milquetoast dancies popped up in several Fountain locations before the general dispersal. And then it was cold again. And the night ended there.

  1. wtf is this?

    This is actually the dumbest post ever. Can someone add a function to wesleying to avoid unnecessary, uninformative, self-indulgent posts like this? or ask posters like LaraStoned to put this on their personal blog instead of a campus blog? Wesleying has been a great and important source of good information on campus. Hearing about one student’s weekend escapades doesn’t contribute much to this…

    1. YeaWTF

      I completely agree. Since when did Wesleying agree to become a dumbed-down Weekend/Style/Fashion blog? It’s about student events and affairs the students should know about. All this information is entirely useless.
      Shame on you Wesleying.

      Our bad. We must have forgotten that Wesleying only covers important and urgent breaking news on campus.

    THE SCI LI CHAIR WAS STOLEN
    I’M WATCHING A LADY AT SCI LI GIVE FLATTOP A REPORT
    IT WAS STOLEN
    THEY DONT KNOW WHERE IT IS
    THE CHAIR COST ALOT OF MONEY

      1. iwishiwereabrosh

        poor alot – it would stand no chance in the real world (and be picked clean in minutes like piranhas swarming a meal). That is why alot of money must stay in chair all day long.

  3. Samantha O'Brien

    If a giant hairless cat WAS actually one of the sci-li chair options, I would totally vote for it.
