GOOGLE GROUPS POST OF THE WEEK:
this week’s sermon is about gluttony. specifically, betsy will be talking about eating in excess. for example, ellen provided unholy amounts of temptuous snacks for the attendees of big brother practice. among the offerings were baby girl’s twice baked sweet potatoes, sandy’s cabbage, and michelle’s carrot cake. everybody ate ravenously as they binged between points. it was pretty great. hooray for gluttony.
WEEKLY ITEM #1: The Weekly Schedule
This Wednesday, Pick Up, 7-9, BCIS
Every Sunday, Big Brother Practice, 12-2, ISB, followed by pickup from 2-4.
this week is the final Wednesday session at BCIS for the season. betsy would like to thank everyone for all the fantastic memories this year. however, given that its success was mostly due to the advertisement in the weekly schedule, she deserves most or all of the thanks. also thanks to alicia or something.
WEEKLY ITEM #2: Upcoming Tournaments
April 3-4: Ningbo Hat
April 17-18: Tianjin Open
April 24-25: Singapore Women and Open
May 1-2: Jeju Gnarly Nines
May 15-16: China Nationals, Beijing
June 5-6: Shanghai
July 4-10: Worlds in Prague
now is the time in the weekly email when betsy gives her weekly shout outs and call outs. remember, you want to get shouted out, but you don't want to get called out.
a shout out to tao. you’ve brought great honor and glory to beijing through your victory at the esteemed shenzhen hat tournament. your plentiful past and current failures will be overlooked for one week. enjoy.
a call out to joe. you don’t need a shoulder to run suicides.
a shout out to baby girl. baby girl hosted the cougarpalooza 2010 after party at his home this weekend. he did not invite any of his friends. beijing ultimate owes you a debt of gratitude for taking that down on your own. also: rowr.
a call out to sandy. sandy would be running big brother practice this week, if she wasn’t fleeing the country or frolicking on the sandy beaches of maui and staring longingly into gareth’s piercing blue eyes.
a shout out to matt. he’s going to have his tournament cherry broken in ningbo. everyone wish him luck and ensure he gets so drunk at the saturday party that he ends up grinding on the dance floor with jim’s light saber.
a call out to weather. make up your mind already. are you going to be sandy, snowy, rainy, or sunny? and none of this “oh, i’m just the weather, i occur due to temperature and moisture differences between one place and another and it’s really hard to predict me accurately” crap. betsy is sick of it. although, on an unrelated note…
a shout out to this past sunday’s weather. you were awesome. thanks!
a call out to shen. shen? hello?
a shout out to alicia. even from shanghai, she’s organizing more beijing-ultimate related festivities than twenty tao’s mashed together in a giant tao-mashing machine, harnessing the sum potential of their ambition and motivation, to create a megatao, one which still wouldn’t get up before noon on frisbeeless days.
WEEKLY ITEM #3: Lunch time Poll
Which of these is the worst idea yet for beijing’s star wars themed costumes at ningbo?
jim – intergalactic jedi pimps
kevin – tailored pink suits for everyone
ace – human light sabers
jeff – a flock of gangster jar jar binks
chicken – screw you guys, i bought the costumes for kunming.
tao – one gelatinous, felching, jabba the hut. (Bonus question: Who
would you rather do: Jabba the Hut right after a shower, or a service
alicia – princess leia’s, all chained to jabba the hut of course.
and finally, your moment of zen…
