Overdue Posting, New Blog, Sweet Overheards

Howdy all. Sorry about the length of this update- as I'm sure you know, the weeks before spring break tend to lead people the entire Cornell community into a mass-neurotic suicidal break down, and I suffered like the rest of em. But we're back, hopefully refreshed, and almost entirely snow free. So to the next month and a half: may it not kill our souls.
On a more upbeat note, there is a new blog Overheard Everywhere which is taking overheards from all over this great land, and web, and posting it in one bigger site. Though it will not effect how we are run at all, I think it is worth noting that a large majority of the posts so far on Overheard Everywhere come from us! Way to go Cornell! It's a pretty hilarious site, so check them out.
Though they've taken a bunch of your quotes already, too many for me to mention, they contact me when they make an add, so I will email you if your future submissions end up on their website. Which is a big ole way of saying, look, even more reasons to submit! Check them out, and check out these newbies.

Art Prof to class: When viewing a webpage, you're probably going to need to choose the vehicele to see it. Maybe you will you pick Safari, or Fox Fire, but not Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is definetly on the out these days. You might also choose Netscape or Opera, but I'd say go with Fox Fire.

D-kizzle, your comment's been deleted on account of you name dropping me. You know I'm anonymous baby.

Wow. congrats on being the fourth overheard when i google "overheard at." you come up before "overheard in new york"

oh damn. i just had a thought, and realized that the "in" might matter.. it did. you were 30th when i searched "overheard" still...

only Western has you beat. that's pretty exciting. but you're bigger than both "overheard in vancouver" AND "overheard in the classroom"!
