get to chengdu. it may be your last chance to play ultimate at the 2010 chengdu hat tournament ever.


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 larpers. big brother proved once and for all they are the coolest kids on the block and don’t need to wear diapers to make people love them. although they would if they thought it would make them cooler. which it doesn’t. it just makes you look stupid. stupid diapers.

a call out to alec. betsy hasn’t been this outraged since gollum betrayed frodo by leading him to the great spider shelob in the tunnels of cirith ungol on their way to mordor. big brother, like
frodo, will ultimately emerge unscathed and fulfill their destiny as the undisputed asian party champions.

a shout out to doc. betsy commends you on yet again inventing a needlessly complicated party theme all but assuring the party victory, complete with playing cards.

a shout out to everyone that used the playing cards. betsy saw kevin riding on stew’s back, jake acting as doc’s wingman, and alicia using chain lightning on lincoln.

a call out to chatikin. you need to start wearing two pairs of underwear and stop breaking hats.

a shout out to barbie. hey barbie. hi! how’s your hand after the gigantic blood vessel erupted from practicing layouts? call betsyyyyyyy!!!!!!!1!!

a call out to shanghai. who hosts a tournament and doesn’t give out a spirit award? you deserve a swift kick in the groin. betsy knows an army of angry frisbee players with a license to deliver one (1).

a shout out to taolicia. playing with broken bones and sickly stomachs, getting sick layout d’s, callahans, and greatests, they provided a source of inspiration to all. betsy gets a little wet when she thinks about it.

a call out to sandy. where was the free flowing bai jiu at the party? betsy hasn’t been this disappointed in an apothecary since the time one sold poison to romeo which he used to commit suicide. no, betsy is not cultured. yes, she googled it.


WEEKLY ITEM #3: Lunch time Poll

which of the following new couples is most likely to last beyond this weekend?

a) chelfad

b) triple d

c) mini claire

d) jelan

e) chuliet


and finally, your moment of zen…

catch you on the field,
