Random won't
date Daily staffer

Every year at this time, when my
portfolios and papers are piling up,
undone, due the same day as my exams,
T think the pressure's going to be tooj
much, and I'm not going to make it...
.-.

.and in longest shadow in the'
valley of despair, I look up on
my way home, and Dominick'sI
i.en, so I stop in for an
Oberon, and I know somehow o
life will work out.
.1y - .. t- -. . . 7

The drinking makes it
easier to forget my
obligations until the
end, when I cram a t
semester's worth of
work into a week, and
take my C with a smile2
f b~n '/

That still
doesnt 1
explain
the other
day.

By Manish RaW
Daily Arts Writer

-Eu..--- u-E --BE

Remember, I ran into
you there at four in
_ i the afternoon with
1 a pitcher of Sangria
Remind me. My and a couple of
last few weeks Community High
are hazy School girls at l
your table...

{Oh, yes, those
two. I met them Oh, Community .
at Espresso Royale where the citys
and asked if they ;gifted go to get
wanted real drinks corrupted

Hey! That's my
alma mater
you're knocking.
Case in
SSocrates. ' -

The Michigan Daily: Hello, is
Michelle in?
Random: This is. Who are you?
TMD: This is Manish, I'm with The
Michigan Daily and you've been chosen
for Weekend Magazine's random student
interview.
RS: Do I get paid?
TMD: In good conversation.
RS: That means shit to me, I'm broke.
Why is the Michigan Daily interviewing
me?
TMD: It's for Weekend Magazine. Do
you know what that is?
RS: Ummm ... it's Saturday and Sun-
day.
TMD: No, no. Weekend Magazine. It's
a magazine.
RS: Oh. That's the thing in the middle
on Thursdays, right?
TMD: Exactly. It's better than
Newsweek.
RS: That's not saying much at all ...
Weekend is always scattered all over the
floors of Angell. People just pull it out.
TMD: That's what they do to

-------- - --

Newsweek, too.
RS: I'm reading Vogue right now. It's
the first ever Shape issue.
TMD: What's that all about?
RS: Female body types. Kate Dillon
to Eva Kubatova. Fat, skinny, all beauti-
ful.
TMD: This would be fascinating if it
weren't for that pesky heterosexuality of
mine.
RS: (Laughter) You need to touch your
feminine side.
TMD: What would you do if, at a bar,
you said that to a guy and he said back
"You should touch my masculine side?"
RS: (Laughter) I'd go home with him.
TMD: No you wouldn't. That line
never works. Ever.
RS: Yeah, I don't know anyone who
would fall for that.
TMD: Say, do you want to finish this
interview in person? Maybe grab a cup of
coffee, catch a movie?
RS: Are you trying to pick me up?
TMD: Absolutely not! Strictly profes-
sional.
RS: Do you really work for the Daily?
TMD: Are you really reading the
Shape issue of Vogue?
RS: Are you a communist?
TMD: Why do you ask?
RS: Everyone who works at the Daily
is a communist, right?
TMD: Hey, I ask the questions around
here.
RS: You're defensive. Are you mad
because I won't go out on a date with
you?
TMD: Stop it. What are you doing this
summer?
RS: Anything but go on a date with
you.
TMD: Sarcasm, I've heard, is a cover
for feelings of inferiority and hatred. Who
do you hate the most in the world?
RS: I'm not angry, I'm joking around.
I am sarcastic. And I hate homeless peo-
ple and communists. And oral sex.
TMD: Giving or receiving?
RS: Giving.
TMD: Do you think it's weird that
some guys find it sexy watching a girl
eating an ice cream cone or a posicle or a
hotdog or a lollipop?
RS: It's kind of desperate, definitely
weird. But I get why guys like that.
TMD: What about watching a girl eat
a taco?
RS: (Laughter) Hard or soft?
TMD: Punny! Either one.
RS: If a guy gets off watching a girl
eat a taco, he's got issues. Do you have
issues?
TMD: Yes, but none related to tacos.
RS: Mine are all related to tacos. Are
you short?
TMD: No. Actually, I'm kind of tall.
RS: Oh. You seem like you have a
Napolean Complex.
TMD: Thank you. Why are you so
scatter-brained?
RS: Are you calling me dumb?
TMD: Indirectly, yes.
RS: That's not going to help you get a
date with me.
TMD: I think I've got enough materi-
al. Thank you for allowing this interview
RS: I'll be sure to shake it out of the
Daily tomorrow
