Ascars ’08

So the time of the year comes again when Mount Allison attributes it’s “popular” people at the Ascars Awards show, the formal event at the always sexy Convocation Hall. This year, like the rest, has been cheesy and concentrated on the North American norm of being “bling bling ghetto.”

Excuse me, but I’m white, and I’m not ghetto. Sorry!

Anyways, the surprises of the awards were not surprising, and even more surprising half of the people who were nominated, I didn’t even know! That’s surprising, since I thought that my widespread knowledge and recognition of colleagues was mondial. In any case, the singing, dancing, and entertainment acts were fun, and I couldn’t help but think constantly to what I would do if I was on stage. Obviously I’d so some contortionist-acrobatic show thing, probably in some scandelous lycra outfit that was just plain fabulous.

Away from dreams for a minute, but a really good comment was made by one of the winners. She stated that it’s really difficult to choose good people and winners amongst 2’000 over-involved people. It’s true, but what bothers me the most about this comment, is nearly 90% of those overly-involved students, are poor academicians, and aren’t completely loyal to the societies in which they participate. If someone is in everything, they shouldn’t be awarded based on quantity; quality is far more important. I’m not saying she didn’t deserve it, because she did, but it just made me wonder.

Also, as a side note I have to mention that props to my housemate Sarah for going with me, because I got about 100 rejections today whilst trying to round someone up. We were the peanut gallery in the back, it was fun to dress up! Also, upon arriving there were thunderous roars coming from the “arena” which made it quite intimidating to go in; it’s nothing like it was in my years that I went, that I can assure you!

Also I couldn’t help but laugh at all the skanks walking by strugglin’ in their shose; gurl if you can’t walk in ’em, eitha giv’em to me, or wea somtin’ else!
