We're #1!

Thanks to fellow Badger TBone for sending this my way.

MADISON, Wis. -- Where's the best place for a college kid to party? Right here in the heartland, Playboy magazine says.

The magazine, breaking a four-year hiatus by issuing a list of top party schools, has named the University of Wisconsin-Madison No. 1 in its study of ''books, babes and beer.''

The issue hitting newsstands Friday cites two annual parties that UW-Madison students love: a Halloween Party that attracts up to 100,000 people and a rowdy spring block party in the heart of campus.

But the magazine also commends the city's vibrant music scene, its enthusiasm for the Badgers sports teams -- and yes, its reputation as a good academic school.

University officials said they weren't thrilled about topping another list for party schools after the Princeton Review named the school its top party school last year.

But ''it's good to be known as a place where there's a lot going on for students,'' said UW-Madison spokesman John Lucas. ''It's good they do take into account the academics.''


With a reputation like that, I gotta love my alma mater.

Other exciting news: I sent out my application to renew my passport yesterday. I should have a shiny new form of ID with a terrible picture of myself in a mere 6 weeks. I haven’t used my passport in 9 years, it’s about damn time I got myself out of the country. Anyone have success teaching themselves Spanish? I got some books and CDs from the library but they were so boring I only listened to them once.

Lol…oh TK you crack me up. I’m going to Costa Rica with my sister and the rest of the bridesmaid crew for some fun-in-the-sun style debauchery. I leave on Sun June 4 and I’ll be coming back the following Sun. This
is the place we’ll be staying at, free of charge!

I heard that Rosetta Stone is good, but I don't think you can check them out of the li-berry...

And don't bother with sonic bark ANYTHING! Dogs just ignore it. Just go with static or citronella and go all the way. I don't know Dexter, but I've had such good success with mine--and Titan's not without quirks himself--that I'd at least give it a try. But that's up to you. It took me almost eight years to try it myself!
