Do you know little more about France than that it churns out lots of wine, cheese, and Airbus jets? Do you want to know more about the upcoming French elections? Well, you’re in luck. Maya Bery ’08 sends us this:
On Sunday, France goes to the polls to choose between Nicolas Sarkozy and Ségolène Royal. Two contenders. Arguments about immigrants, race, the EU, and the economy abound. He’s been accused of wanting to be like George Bush, she scored big points for looking hot in a bikini at age 53. It’s France, what else can you say?
Professor Nathanael Greene will talk about the election, its import to France, and why it matters for you.
Date: Thursday, May 3
Time: 4:15 PM
Place: Romance Languages Dept. (300 High St.)
Wine and Cheese is in
Up 3Up 1 tonight.
So campus is getting really busy, and there’s no possible way that Holly and I can cover everything that’s going on. That said, if you’re on the list of contributors (i.e. all you people on the list at the top right of this page!), please try to throw something up here once in a while. Once in a while being, like, once a week? Two weeks? We hate deadlines, but if you see something fun and quasi-relevant to Wes, do post.
To the readers: If you have an event/sighting/mischief and want us to post it here, e-mail us at wesleying(at)gmail.com and we’ll probably throw it on the site. More importantly, some, uh, real life name-dropping would be cool, too. Like if this coming Saturday your friends are like,
Friends: “Yo, Reader, what’s going on today?”
You: “There’s the LoTR extended edition marathon at Alpha Delt, an Outhouse camping trip, apple picking at High Hill Orchards, a bike ride to Wadsworth Falls, a Smash Brothers Melee tournament in the Nic lounge, smoothies at Well Being House and Heart Play(s) in the ’92.”
Friends: “Wow, Reader, you’re so
sexyinformed! How did you know about all that?”
You: “WELL THERE’S A LITTLE BLOG CALLED WESLEYING THAT I LOVE VERY MUCH AND YOU SHOULD VISIT IT AT WESLEYING.BLOGSPOT.COM”
…You get the picture.
The first for-real Wine and Cheese (otherwise known as vino y queso, vin et fromage, chine and weese, or movie night) of the year is tonight! 9:13 in Up 2. For the frosh, wine and cheese is a Wes tradition that takes place every Thursday night in a different room in Westco. It is characterized by a lot of wine and not a lot of cheese. Throughout the year, variations sometimes occur, such as Tequila and Tortillas or Beer and Bread; the most strange of these I’ve had the pleasure to attend was an event called Whiskey and Bacon. But I digress. Wine and Cheese. Be there.
Afterwards at 10:30 is Schmooze with the Jews at the Bayit. I’ve been told there will be ice cream. Mmm.
