Girls Just Wanna Have Fun




Even grad students need to get out sometimes. Here are the girls in all our Saturday night glory: Maya, Hilda, Susannah, Rachel and I.


There was drinking. There was dancing. There was Cyndi Lauper music.


And since this was Club Marcella, there were drag queens. There was a former student doing a little underage drinking. And there were sequins... lots and lots of sequins.

After all, girls (and guys that want to be girls) know that sometimes a sequined Saturday night can cure all that ails you. Well, make that sequins and a few drinks.

Now back to your regular scheduled life. But maybe writing would be a little more fun if we wore sequins while we were all alone in our offices?

Hey, if that 50-year-old shoe salesman can boogie it up in a bad wig, leopard-print stretch dress from the 80s and fishnets, I think we could do a little bit of glitter eye shadow in the library, right?

RAD...speaking as one of the girls who had fun this Saturday night, I can attest to sequins and alcohol as a overall panacea. Birthday cake also seriously helps. (Happy Birthday again Hilda!) Anyway, what a delight to read Leslie's blog instead of trying to write Honorary Degree nomination letters...
