Hey guys! Hope you are all having an absolutely fabulous weekend. Autumn Feast yesterday was a huge success, thanks to everyone who came out! We had a lot of fun making hand turkeys and eating chili and pie. But if you think that was the highlight of MUGS events, you are sorely mistaken! We have even more tricks up our sleeves, like a trip to Ottawa this Friday!

Cool Geography Thing of the Week

I stumbled upon (literally, I used StumbleUpon) this website just now. It's got an interactive map. It's fun. Not really sure what to do with it, but I'm gonna play around with it I think.

Wow, is that it?? That was the shortest listserv ever, I can't believe I procrastinated it until Saturday night. I guess it goes to show me that I shouldn't procrastinate. Be good students, everyone! And see you all at the other side of midterms.
