Badger Homecoming, the weekend of October 26, heh, heh, heh! Thanks to our friend and co-Badger alum Jon, who pulled together tickets from our other mutual friend Niko – woo hoo Jon and Niko!
And this time, I’m taking Nathan (and Jon’s taking his daughter Sophia), which will cast a verrryy different (read: sober!) view of Madtown, ha. And I can’t wait! I’m so excited to show Nathan where I lived and went to classes, my Gamma Phi Beta sorority house, the KK (burgers, of course), the Brathaus (aka State Street Brats, more burgers with Jon and Sophie, uff, a burger-y weekend, and yet, somehow I’ll manage, ha…), the Union Terrace, Gino’s (lasagna and tortellini bolognese, baby), perhaps a Parthenongyro (if we can somehow fit it in), hopefully lunch on Sunday with my Portuguese professor Mary Schil, The University Bookstore for Bucky Everything (especially for Cooper, who lurves Bucky), and of course, the creme de la creme…a Badger Football Game. (And oh, lots of walking to burn off all that heavy food, good Lord I don’t know how I didn’t weigh a coupla hundo in college…)
Camp Randall, here we come! Woo hoooooo!
Oooh, get this! My doorbell rang this evening and lo and behold, there were Susie and Cory, bearing not just treats, but warm, home-baked Apple Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce! Yessss! I adoreApple Bread Pudding, and now so does Nathan, ha. Thank you, thank you, thank you, my dear friend. You’re The Best!
