in a perfect world of yancies: Drinks, Offices, and PB&J

22 September 2007

Drinks, Offices, and PB&J

The first leg of orientation (or the New Faculty Institute, if you prefer) ended with free food and drinks at Garage, a pool hall/bowling alley/bar across the street from campus. So that's cool. Pictured above (I think): Yancy, Matt Rellihan (Philosophy), Jacquelyn Miller (Associate Provost for Academic Affairs), Lauren Weiss (Philosophy), Jessica Ludescher (Management, Philosophy), and Bryan (or is it Brian? sorry!--I can't remember)

Again, sorry! I had a great time, though, and enjoyed meeting everyone. If more names come back to me, I'll let you know, reader.

Some photos of the new suite of offices, where I'll be working:



Office/cubicle. Not mine, but similar

Conference room (not bad, on the whole, don't you think?)

Lastly, we went to a great show by Peter Bjorn and John, at the excellent Showbox Theater:

I know you can't really tell, but Peter is doing the whistling part of that Young Folks song, which sounded surprisingly good. Mel Draisey from the Clientele did the other vocal (originally done by Victoria Bergsman).

Bjorn, John, Peter

Now the video for that Young Folks song is pretty cool (Emily really likes it, so you should probably check it out), but I'm offering the video for the song I've got playing, Objects of My Affection:

  1. Very impressive orientation.

    And I'm so jealous of your office area I can hardly stand it! Everything looks so state-of-the art.

    Interesting videos, both ...
