Thing that made me happiest today: I walked from my office to the union and, in so doing, had to cross through part of the biannual street fair. Various political groups had tables set up around the free speech amphitheater, but that wasn’t the exciting part. The campus radio station was playing Britney Spears’ new song across a nearly empty amphitheater — nearly empty, except for a stereotypically dorky grad-school looking kid, with a backpack and Buddy Holly glasses, doing a solo, sideways moon-walk type dance to the music. Just happily dancing with and, apparently, for himself, to the loud strains of “You’re a womanizer, baby.”
I love college campuses.
