I mentioned TGs in a previous post. To refresh your memory, they are the school of computer science’s big departmental parties (actually thrown by the student organization, Dec/5). The name has been generalized to any party thrown in the department. Today’s was the Smiley TG, celebrating the birthday of the smiley, invented by Scott Fahlman, a professor in my department. Planned as well as all things are, today is also the annual picnic for my department! So I went to the TG, where I was almost completely without friends. So I drank a Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and left. But not before grabbing some swag and snapping a pic of the pandemonium.
