CAMPUS LIFE

1 - ST. PATRICK'S DAY - 36.5/40

Food: *****

On this glorious day when everyone is Irish, the only food you need is whatever they serve at the bar, and beer. Healthy no, tasty yes.

Colour Scheme: ****

Green, green and more green. The Wizard of Oz had it right when he called it the Emerald City.

Gifts: 0

Other than the fact we're all bestowed with the grace of the Irish and the spirit of leprechauns, gifts are the only category in which this holiday sucks.

Music: ***1/2

You're too drunk to hear any music, but the sound of your own voice improves with beer, making you feel as though you need to start a band. Hard on the ears for sober people? Too bad for them - good for you.

Time of year: ****

Mar. 17 is the perfect break between Reading Week and the end of exams. I think this day needs to be declared a national holiday.

Preparation: *****

There is no preparation needed, other than making sure you're up for the challenge of drinking beer for at least 12 hours non-stop.

Company: *****

Friends, foes and fairies - everything is better when you're all sharing in the tasty nectar of the beer gods.

Drink Rating / Chances for Sex / Getting Arrested: **********

Off the chart in all three categories - the over consumption of alcohol creates beer goggles and lends to rowdy ruckus. St. Patty sure knows how to throw one helluva party.
