The Two Party System
In reverse chronological order:
- 10pm - 1am
- Drank vodka from a red plastic cup. Was adored by my fan club (former students). Saw TAs who used to work for me. Talked to an undergrad who used to be one of our interns but who is now going to be CTO for a crazy start-up in Chattanooga, TN. Mocked him for joining a start-up in a place where his friends have deluded themselves about being the next tech epicenter. Discussed the new, quieter Sun Chips bag. Did not get hit on by any of the usual suspects.
- 6pm - 10pm
- Talked to a historian about the history of riots. Met someone whose research on discourse is being used as a model for introducing discussions of race and class on campus. Ate food from the new Liberian restaurant in the "real and authentic" part of town. Drank wine with the provost.
