christmas 2008

Far above Cayuga's waters...

...with its waves of blue, stands our noble Alma Mater, glorious to view.

Grand Bonecoming is in the books, and it was off the hook, off the chain, and off the charts. And now that I've returned to my ancestral home of Northport, it's time to set the memories down in words. There's a lot of stuff to talk about, so I'm going to present this one in cuts.

I said this would be the greatest week of 2007, and it certainly got off to a flying start. I've got 132 photos from the weekend, which now comprise my screen saver, replacing the shots from my Boston road trips earlier this year. Thanks are due to all the alumni who showed up, and all the undergrads for hosting - especially the Bone House residents for not making a stink about my van being parked behind the house. Also kudos to the Cornell football team for putting up a W. I came in with high hopes for this to be a special weekend, and it exceeded expectations - I'll joyfully remember Grand Bonecoming 2007 for a long time to come. Oh, one last thing -

Lift the chorus, speed it onward, loud her praises tell; hail, all hail our Alma Mater, hail, all hail Cornell!
