emo evening thoughts

realizing i am generally too busy to write evening emo thoughts is the most emo-inducing thought of all

hell is other people['s weddings]

Having watched Maryland blow out BC over the weekend, I was surprised at the lack of atmosphere at BC basketball games. There was no student presence to speak of.

So can I say that when I'm at yours? (I totally agree BTW, but it's because I'm short of $ and socially awkward).

Does BC play in a disproportionately large arena? That seems like a hallmark of the old Big East teams. Georgetown has no fan presence either.

BC not yet being back in session might have had something to do with it, but generally speaking the comment holds up. BC students are fairly active at football games, but are strangely unengaged at basketball and hockey games, despite the fact that the basketball team makes the tournament with some frequency and the hockey program is one of the elite programs in the country.

Really, shouldn't that take all the pressure off of wedding planning, since you're working from such a low fun standard?

You could just aim for purgatory.

I like going to my friends' weddings, but friend-of-a-date weddings are awkward, because they're formal and you usually only know one or two people there and you can't just hover around your date and monopolize them because they know so many other people at the wedding.

wade is correct that I was thinking of times when you are very tangentially related to the wedding. but i was mostly just proud of myself for the play on words.

BC isn't back in session? lazy bums.
