The Michigan Daily Weekend, etc.

By Josh Wickerham
Daily Arts Writer
What would it be like to pick a ran-
dom name out of the University phone
book and ask them miscellaneous
questions about life, love and laugh-
ter? The Michigan Daily is all about
exploring the new and unknown. The

names haven't been changed to protect
the innocent - this a real person with
real opinions. The victim chosen is
Elizabeth Walkowiak, sophomore in
the school of Nursing.
The Michigan Daily: What's the
strangest phone call you've ever got-
ten?

Elizabeth Walkowiak: Mmmm,
probably this one. Yeah, I don't get too
many strange phone calls.
TMD: As you probably know,
Friday is Groundhog's Day. Do you
think it's insulting to weather men that
people put faith in a rodent's predic-
tions?
EW: No, I think that it's just a fun

tradition and that people don't put too
much stock into that. I don't think
people take it too seriously and the
weather men don't take it too serious-
ly either.
TMD: Have you ever seen the
movie "Groundhog's Day?"
EW: Uhuh.
TMD: Have you ever had a day

when it feels like you're repeating
another day?
EW: Um, sometimes, you know,
when you first get your new school
schedule. It is especially true in the
Nursing School.
TMD: Do you think Bill Murray,
in real life, has ever had days like that
day in "GroundHog's?"
EW: I think everybody has those
kinds of days.
TMD: Do you think Punxsutawney
Phil is cute by rodent standards?
EW: Yeah, I saw him on Regis and
Kathie Lee. I think he's pretty cute.
Although, I'm not a big fan of
rodents.
TMD: Do you feel that if the
weather man gives the wrong advice
and it ruins someone's picnic that
they should be held responsible?
EW: These questions are SO
ridiculous! I really think it's just a
fairy tale.
I don't know what kind of a person
would think that. Weather men don't
have any control over nature.
TMD: You don't know anyone who
would hold them responsible?
EW: I'm sure there's some people
out there who wanna have someone
to blame.
TMD: Do you think people blame
Punxsutawney Phil if the weather is
bad?
EW: I guess there are some people.
I don't know anybody who takes the
whole Groundhog's Day seriously.
Maybe there are people out there who
blame the rodent for six more weeks
of winter, but obviously they don't
know much about meteorology.
TMD: Do you know what the word
felching means?
EW: Excuse me? What's the word.
TMD: F-e-1-c-h-i-n-g.
EW: I have no idea.
TMD: The problem is we don't
either. And we were hoping the some-
one would.
EW: Are you guys for real?
TMD: Yeah, it'll be in the paper
tomorrow. You don't believe me?
EW: At first, no, but I'm a really
gullible person and people like to do
this to me and I guess I believe them.
TMD: You don't think this is a
bunch of frat boys playing a prank on
you?
EW: No, I don't think it's frat boys.
God...Um, do you guys just call ran-
dom people?
TMD: No, this is the first
time... What was your first time?
EW: My what?
TMD: Your first time.
EW: Can you elaborate?
TMD: Let's move on (Because
otherwise The Daily could get sued
for sexual harassment). Here's a seg-
ment we like to call - Do you know
your Daily and Britney's boobs?
TMD: Do you like Chris Kula?
EW: Yeah, I do. I think his
columns are sooooo good.
TMD: Do you think Britney's
boobs are real or fake? (Personally I
think they are super-duper great!).
EW: Well, "I've never really
thought about it and I don't look at
her boobs all that often.

accompaniment? Ha Ha Ha!).
