The Good Old Days

So, in the mail yesterday came an invitation for my husband to the Pitt homecoming game and a get together with his Fraternity. His fraternity, for whatever reason that was really really stupid, was disbanded 10 years ago and was finally reinstalled on campus 9 months ago. YAY! In this email was a link to the chapter alumni website. So, after I gave him the information I went and peeked. All of the pictures in the alumni section were of when he and I were in college. Oh, were we ever so young and skinny? YIKES!! What memories! Parties on the porch roof, football games at the old Pitt Stadium (now why would they tear it down and build a new one downtown? what, the kids today can't walk up cardiac hill anymore?), pig roasts, football on the Cathedral Lawn, spring days laying out on the Cathedral Lawn, Schenley Park, Panther Hollow, Stephanie and I walking 5 miles from our sorority suite in freaking freezing weather to some rinky dink convienence store for a cup of hot chocolate, movies at David Lawrence Auditorium, classes in the Nationality Rooms in the Cathedral of Learning. Oh yeah, and learning. Not that I work in the field I majored in.

So, then I went and took a look around my sorority's website, to see if any of my chapter sisters had checked in to the message board. And lo and behold, there is a new networking site (that, coindicentally, my husband's fraternity is now using as well!). So I signed up. Not many of my chapter sisters have signed up yet, but if you are a member of Theta Phi Alpha and have not signed up for the new InCircle site, what are you waiting for?

Just realized you had this new blog. You pulled me in with the "Iced Coffee". I still haven't tried the Iced Maple Bacon Flavored Coffee!
Sorry - don't know anything about Pitt, but it's nice to see one of the fellow cat bloggers doing their own thing too. If you want to check out some foodie stuff -- stop in and see my new blog too. Hey - Iced coffee bar and foodie stuff goes together right? I'll add you to my new blog list if that's ok?
