Frosh prt 1

September 5th, 2006

I’m at university now, in case you didn’t know. I’ve been busy with Frosh week activities, so I don’t know how often I’ll update in the next couple of weeks. I’m doing fine but I’m still trying to get used to life here.
Shinerama was today. It’s a day where all the university freshmen accross Canada go out and shine (beg) for money for cystic fibrosis. We were out in front of the Sobey’s near Fenwick Tower from 10 to 4 today. We didn’t simply ask for money, no. We had two gimmicks: Gunshow Frosh had his shirt stolen and had written “donate to help me get my clothes back” on his chest with a permenant marker. He said that he had old women trying to grope him, but he made something like 150$. Chad, the president of my dorm, Eliza Ritchie, was taped to a collumn above the air with packing tape and duct tape, and he stayed up there for two and a half hours. We got 250$ out of that, but when he was finally cut down he blacked out for a couple of minutes.
Standing outside a supermarket all day is a very interesting experience. You can sort of predict how long people are going to spend shopping. If it’s a parent with a child, it’s an hour; if it’s a group of young-looking people, it’s ten to fifteen minutes (they’re only going in for booze and snacks); if it’s older people by themselves, you can expect almost three hours. Interesting people hang out around the entrance, too. There’s the strange woman who spends half an hour smoking on a bench near the cigarette store, only to appear again in another couple of hours. There was that strange half male half female seventy year old in the pencil skirt and stillettos who also appeared several times during the day. But the strangest experience of the day was when a strange man came up to me and asked if he could throw a knife at Chad on the collumn for money. I thought he was joking, but he kept on repeating his demand. He said that if Chad was really dedicated to his cause, he would be willing to risk his life. The knife man sort of scared me for a while, but he ended up giving four dollars with no knife throwing.
