Insomnia Cookies is the greatest thing to happen in the 21st century hands down. For the past two years, I’ve heard bougie students complain: “Why don’t we have a Chipotle near campus? Where is the Starbucks? Why can’t I have freshly baked cookies delivered to my door when I’ve high out of my mind at 2 am on a Saturday night and I’m halfway through a documentary about Scientology?”
Have no fear Wesleyan community. The Drunken Goods is here to answer your prayers. For more info on how to get your late night fixing, hit the jump.
A message from Jamie Hall ’15 with the promise of cookies!
Between 1300 and 1550, church court across Europe frequently excommunicated delinquent debtors for breach of faith. This did not reflect the preoccupations of prelates or ecclesiastical judges, but widespread, popular demand for legal-religious remedies in matters of day-to-day, relatively minor credit.
By examining the practice of excommunication for debt in light of recent theories of network and organizations, we can glimpse how pre-Reformation believers understood the Church–and the market.

This just in from the effervescent Talia Bauer ’15 with a v enticing event where you get to eat cookies and
make broken hearts out of construction paper celebrate the upcoming holiday of luv!
In my ninth grade Spanish class, Señora Betegh taught us that Valentine’s Day is ACTUALLY the day of Love AND of Friendship. This might have just been a clever ruse to teach us the word “amistad,” but the point is, this coming week we have an opportunity to celebrate ALL
of the people we love and appreciate in our lives. So your stunning neighborhood CAs are holding a Valentine-making and cookie-decorating
party (and yes, we will have frosting that isn’t gross-tasting and
pink). Come make Valentines and cookies for your S/O, your friendz
with benz, your roommate, your bestie, your parent, your CUSTODIAN,
your advisor, your neighbor, your RA/HM/CA (NO we’re not
self-interested, how dare you suggest it)… Basically the
possibilities are endless. See you there!

Right now, we’re looking for teams – of however many people you want – to bake! Don’t be afraid to get creative with your baked goods. (Last year’s winner was the “Inception Cookie” – a cookie inside a cookie – and it was legendary). Prizes will be awarded to the winning teams!

Even if you are not interested in baking, join us at the Usdan Cafe at dinnertime on Thursday, 3/7 to participate in the eating part of the Cookie Cup!
