Anyone out there?


Hey all,

I know class is over, but I wouldn't be averse to random postings from time to time. So, China (because you are probably the only one checking), I thought this was funny. I found it on Style.com. Here's what they said about the badminton birdie (you could probably get into a discussion of the practicality of art here... haha):


beauty in flight: Badminton birdie or art object?
Your grill is Vieluxe; the beer you serve is microbrewed. Shouldn't your Memorial Day badminton birdies be just as posh? Real goose feathers render this beauty the blue-chip stock of shuttlecocks. While more fragile than the everyday plastic variety, the increased flight quality—they're used in Olympic competition—more than makes up for the fact that you'll have to replace them with some frequency. And then there's the aesthetics. The cork head both pleases the eye and produces a satisfying bang, promising many happy returns.

Why yes, I often yearn for a pleasing cork head or a satisfying bang. Sarah, you know me well. Happy junior year.
