Elise and I, in a fit of nostalgia for Scotland hooligans have relocated several traffic cones to strategic points around campus. We have given new life and meaning to the otherwise everyday statues which populate the grounds. Hooray for minor acts of rebellion.

Someone in Elise's class put this up for bid. I think it is pretty funny. I also think that if enough people find out about it, it would be even better.

There is a peculiar quality to the first days of spring that causes otherwise fairly reserved individuals to do outlandish things.
Today I witnessed the end of a 72 hour game of utimate frisbee. A world record. 30 or so Beloit students played back to back games of ultimate frisbee in hail (30 minutes of hail, enough to accumuate on the ground), rain, 30 degree nights, sunshine, mud, wind. Literallly the elements.
They had 4 hour shifts. They played for 4 hours, slept for 4 hours and then played again. Some of them over slept so the people they were meant to replace had to keep playing. They were limping, one of them had crutches.
It was actually incredible to watch. I went to see them once during the first 24 hours, once last night at 3:30 AM and just now when they finished the game.
They ran around with the very ends of thier reserves, hugging one another, parading a Beloit college flag, lifting one another on thier shoulders. They were actually close to tears. Who can blame them, I nearly was.
For one of the first times I realized that these are the things that people must do to remember the exhiliration of living. They were vibrating with life, even through thier exahustion.
Last night a girl was saying, "I'll sleep from 3-5 and then be back out here at 5." This was just a matter of fact thing. That was her schedule and she was just telling her pals.
I can't imagine what those players are feeling right now. There must be a sadness that the task is over.
It was a really moving experince watching them succeed.
