Last Sunday, The Phillipian staff celebrated the board turnover and bode a generally fond farewell to departing Editors with a banquet held in the Mural Room in Paresky Commons. where the new editors made speeches about and gave gifts to the old ones.


– Charlie tried on the Reagan/Bush ’84 tank top we bought him.

– Lemon squares were pretty good.


– Not actually a banquet.

– “Semi-formal-ish” dress code notoriously confusing

– Ironically, Connor was not there to accept his parting a gift from us: a book on absentee parenting.

– Lots of loud emotional speeches. Couldn’t hear myself think.

– Had to miss Sunday Sundaes.
