Thursday

So, last night I had a whole conversation with my partner about this blog… then I went to sleep, totally forgetting to post.  Sorry!  In my defense, I had gotten about four hours of sleep the night before, leaving my short term memory shot.  Anywho, here’s what’s going on today:

BOWLING NIGHT

  • No classes Friday?  Looking for an off-campus break?  Look no further than Smith College Bowling Night!  Hosted by the REC Council, it’s free for smith students and $5 for guests.  Catch one of the shuttle buses, starting at 9:15 pm, or just head down to the Spare Time Northampton Bowling Center by 9:30 pm.  More information here.

MUSIC

  • Head on down to the Goldstein Lounge of the CC and listen to Lucy Wainwright Roche tonight from 10:00 to 11:00 pm!  Not sure if you want to go?  Get a taste of her music at her myspace page.  More information about the event here.

GENDER FUCKERY

  • Check out this workshop, entitled “Fucking With Gender: An interactive workshop on gender expression, identities, labels, transcending the mutually exclusive binaries, queer culture, and hot sweaty sex.”  Damn, you got our attention.  It’s hosted by guest speaker Sinclair Sexsmith (whose blog can be found here, but it’s pretty NSFW, so don’t check it in the middle of your bio lecture). Sinclair will be speaking in the Resource Center For Sexuality and Gender at 8:00 pm.  More information here.

JAPANESE CULTURE

  • The Smith College Museum of Art and Sazanami are hosting a Celebration of Japanese Culture today in the museum as part of the Touch Fire exhibit currently being shown.  Take some time to appreciate the art and make some of your own, in the form of origami and calligraphy.  Most importantly, however:  free sushi!  It’s going on from 4:30 to 6:00 pm.  More information here.

HUMAN RIGHTS COFFEE

  • Join Smith’s Global Action Against Poverty (GAAPE) and drink some fair trade coffee at the December Human Rights Coffeehouse.  Roya Mohammadi, a Smith student from Afghanistan, and Amherst’s Marigold Fund will be speaking about education for girls in Afghanistan.  More information here.

THEATER

  • Tonight is the opening night for Las Meninas!  This production runs from 8:00 to 10:00 pm in the Mendenhall Center for the Performing Arts.  More information (and a summary of the show) here.
