Best of the Rest
After meeting in class, see 'Titanic,' go
bowling, then break up on the Diag
Best Place to Meet a
When you're thinking about
CRISPing, class times are not the
only thing to take into account. You
might also want to consider how
many, and what kinds, of attractive
people will be in the class. Just a
Best Pickup Line:
"Nice shoes. Let's fuck."
These days no one likes to play
games. So why beat around the bush?
If you're going to go down that road
eventually, you might as well get out
your plans from the jump!
Best Rejection Line:
Again, as no one likes to play
games, rejections these days are
blunt, quick and to the point. Yet
they linger in the ego for hours or
days, depending on how drunk one is
at the time.
Best Place for a First
The best dates are the ones that cost
the least amount of money, but give
the best effect. The Arb offers the best
of both worlds: It's free and romantic,
and the natural suroundings bring out
the animal instincts in us all.
Best Secret Rendezvous:
Do you belong on Jerry Springer?
If you don't want your significant
other to know you're cheating, set up
a secret meeting in the Arb.

Biggest Letdown of a Reading:
Sure, he's an amazing writer and he won a Pulitzer. But when the author of
"Independence Day" and "Women and Men" came to read with the Visiting
Writers Series in March, there was just not much to cheer for.
Most Surprising Reading:
The political activists at the January reading showed how large an effect one
person's writing can have, especially on as sensitive an issue as abortion. Piercy's
reading produced a very emotional response among the audience, who very
quickly became personally connected to her situation.
Best Non-Literary Literary Event:
Political activist, comedian., filmmaker and author of "Downsize This!",
Moore drew a large crowd when he visited the Michigan Theater one Friday
evening in September. Watch out, you rich capitalist pigs. Moore will always try
to stop you.
Most Overlooked Reading:
When the author of "As She Climbed Across the Table" "Gun, with occasion-
al music" and "Girl in Landscape" read at Borders in March, he drew a crowd ...
but it should have been much larger.
Reading That Just Made You Feel Good:
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Maus" was at Shaman Drum in October
to read from his children's book, "Open Me ... I'm a Dog!" The reading had the
audience smiling all the way through. from the leash to the fuzzy back cover.
Best Author to Ever Come Out of Ann Arbor:
Of course. Does any more really need to be said ?
Most Intriguing Literary Phenomenon:
The Anti-Daily Publications
This isn't exclusively the Anti-Daily per se, but all of the student-produced
humor and literary flyers circulating around campus. Although they mildly
stretch the definition of a "literary phenomenon," the concept is fascinating, and
the final product is often well-w ritten and hilarious.

Best Place to Break Up:
Planning on dumping someone?
Do it somewhere with a lot of people
around - that way yelling is kept to
a minimum. And the Diag is certain
to have several passersby at all hours
of the day and night.
Best Unusual Date Idea:
If the Arb is too romantic, try
bowling. Or if that's too sexual. try
ice-skating. Don't forget to pretend-
fall on your date.
Best Date Movie:
This movie already has enough
praise. But Kate Winslet and
Leonardo DiCaprio are bound to get
everyone in the mood for love or
lust, whatever your intent may be.
