HAiry Thoughts on Hare or Hair, Here and There! November 15, 2013


Here and there,
People stop what they do,
making blank stare,
“A hare, there!”
Someone shouts,
“A hair, where?”
The other one responds;
“A big wild rabbit, there!”
“A fat grey bunny, here?!
is this what you refer?”
“Oh, yeah!”
“Alright, lady fair!
I’m thrilled that you
eventually hear that ‘HARE’!”
“I thought it was ‘HAIR’
in the first place, well!”
silent grins,
beautiful air hangs,
no more despair,
because everyone has hairy thoughts,
some time somewhere…
Think of new york city time square,
handy sample “Sandy” turns air heavy, bare!

Associated Student Government presents concrete plans for coming year by The Daily Northwestern 5/15/2013

Associated Student Government presents concrete plans for coming year

Skylar Zhang/Daily Senior Staffer

Associated Student Government senators applaud men’s basketball coach Chris Collins at the Senate meeting Wednesday evening. Collins spoke about the importance of the “sixth man,” or the fans, to the success of the basketball program.

May 15, 2013

Following a contentious Senate meeting last week, Associated Student Government settled into its routine Wednesday with discussion of goals for the year and plans to fill the cabinet.

“This week was all about showing exactly what ASG is going to look like,” ASG president Ani Ajith told The Daily after the meeting. “We had a lot of productive discussion.”

Early in the evening Ajith, a Weinberg junior and former Daily staffer, and executive vice president Alex Van Atta presented the procedure to choose cabinet members for the seats left empty last week when three nominees were rejected by Senate.

Ajith told Senate that ASG will hold a full-scale publicity campaign to recruit applicants for chief of staff, public relations vice president and associate vice president for diversity and inclusion. He will chair the selection committee to oversee and interview applicants.

“We want to see a broad variety of applicants,” he said.

Confirmations will be presented May 29.

Ajith and Van Atta filled in for the three empty positions when members of the executive board presented ongoing projects and priorities for the coming year, which comprised the bulk of the meeting.

Van Atta, speaking for the diversity and inclusion committee, mentioned the ongoing push for gender-open housing and gender-neutral bathrooms.

“That’s just a continual push that we need to do,” the McCormick junior said. “We just need to make sure that doesn’t fall off into oblivion.”

He added that he hopes to see a report on gender-neutral bathrooms by the end of the quarter.

The entire executive board, with the exception of technology vice president Sheng Wu, emphasized the need for recruitment of committee members and asked Senate to reach out to the student body.

The meeting also featured a visit from Dean of Students Todd Adams and men’s basketball coach Chris Collins.

Adams thanked ASG for its community support as the campus grieved for student Dmitri Teplov, who died May 5, and introduced Collins.

The coach emphasized his goal of raising student enthusiasm for NU basketball.

“You know how much the applicants for this place would go up if people turn on basketball games all winter and saw 8,000 people going nuts in Welsh-Ryan?” he said.

Later in the night, Ethan Romba, outgoing technology vice president, and Ian Coley, off-campus caucus whip, presented legislation to reform the ASG election process.

They proposed shortening the non-verbal campaign period from two weeks to one and preventing current and outgoing executive board members from endorsing candidates. The amendments will be voted on next week.

Senate also voted to fund the upcoming ASG Community Garage Sale, a project proposed by Chris Harlow, a senator and SESP freshman. The event will allow students to sell their old or unused items to each other at the end of the year.

Happy 25th Anniversary to Alan, A Poet We Respect!

A Poem by Alan at ncbeachcomber_asa

To my precious adorable bride of 25 years!

My Lovely Deborah

Oh how I love you

and how I adore you

how sweetly I dream of you

all the day long

my heart dances

and lightly flutters

as I reflect on times

spent alone with you

your love is like the fragrant explosion

of a billion roses blooming

in springs misty morn

my love for you each day unfolds

like the petals of the morning glory

dripping with springs essence

in the early morning dew

I long to passionately drink

from the fountain

of your tender loveliness

and get drunk from

the wine of your urgent embrace

I anticipate the taste

of the delicate morsels

of the fruit of your enraptured love

as I dream this sensuous dream of you

Oh beauty of beauties

lover of all lovers

my dear sweet angel

your silken hair

the fairness of your flesh

the soft gentle touch

of your flesh caressing

beneath my fingers

makes my heart throb

and takes my breath away

I could never live

without your tantalizing passions

meet me in the garden of romance

and we will blend together

as the wind in the willows

we will flow together

as the water brooks

cascading upon the rocks

let us mount up on wings as eagles

and soar up to the heights

and recline on the clouds of ecstasy

your delicate lips and smooth body

are a field of the rarest treasures

worth more than

all of the treasures on earth

each day I will love you more and more

until the day that we are

called to come home

I love you my exotic, thrilling beauty

my wonderful wife, me heart

I would marry you infinity;

I love you so much that it hurts

and brings tears to my eyes

All of the words

in all of the languages

of the entire universe

could never tell the tale

of the love I have for you

my forever honey.

Your passionate lover

and loyal friend. ilvubff!!
