and to all a goodnight


Counting the year's blessings

The holidays are a period designed to relieve the pressures of exams, essays and obnoxious boyfriends or girlfriends. In that spirit we wish you all the best and offer one and all an adapted version of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" to hum during this festive season.

On the first day of Christmas,

Homecoming gave to me,

One injured engineer attempting to flee.

On the second day of Christmas,

hazing gave to me,

Two games of suspension for football illegalities.

On the third day of Christmas,

state-side sheriffs gave to me,

Three big fines for using fake ID.

On the fourth day of Christmas,

the USC gave to me,

All four ACES members happily.

On the fifth day of Christmas,

financial services gave to me,

A five-hundred dollar bursary.

On the sixth day of Christmas,

my beer store gave to me,

A six-pack of beer and a party or two or three.

On the seventh day of Christmas,

my administration gave to me,

Seven days of O-week, but kind of academically.

On the eighth day of Christmas,

my CentreSpot took from me,

$8.50 for a meal in the UCC.

On the ninth day of Christmas, transportation gave to me, Nine per bus seat on the LTC.

On the 10th day of Christmas,

Ian Armour gave to me,

Ten broken campaign promises to see.

On the 11th day of Christmas,

the "preppy gang" gave to me,

Eleven brain cells but they kept three.

On the 12th day of Christmas,

Mustang football gave to me, Twelve jock-strapped players at the Ceeps running frantically.

Sing this song with your friends and remember all the strange and wonderful things which happened in 1998. To students and staff of all religious preference, have a happy and safe holiday season.
