With the economy the way it is, many of us need to be on the lookout for marketable ideas. From reading some of the recent posts on this thread I feel there's a sizeable demand for flame-retardant shampoo and conditioner -- a need that isn't being met. Does anyone have phone, fax or e-mail info for a research and development VP or senior manager at Lancome, Clinique/Estee Lauder, Dior, etc.? Heck, even Revlon. I'd like to pitch an idea.

Not at rush (since I never been through rush) but at my old High school there is a "ceromony" when the out going student gov welcome the incoming study body. There was a girl (which I did not vote for) who had really fried hairsprayed hair and there was candles involved. Put two and two together and you get Miss Frizzy and some one empting out a water bottle on her head!!! The thing was infront of the whole school and many alum. Plus it was video taped!!!

Very funny to picture her standing there why some on is squirting a bottle of Dasani on her!!!

This is what legends are made of...
 
This is one of those stories that will never die...

Rhonda Rushee enters our house looking lovely and ready to meet new people. She is engaged in a fantastic conversation when... she reaches her right hand down her pants to scratch her bum. Her bare bum. Someone introduces her to me and she sticks out her hand for me to shake it. (long pause as a consider the ramifications of shaking her hand) And I go with the cool... hey and a friendly wave hello.

Currently Rhonda Rushee is Gerty Greek and is also the head Rho Gamma (Rush Guide.) I can't wait to see what the women who are rushing will do!! (P.S.- It starts this week!)

haha, i have a friend who works in the chem lab at revlon. I'll have to pitch the idea to her, lol.

We had a girl who first came to us last spring, when we first came on campus. She got cut for whatever reason. So she came back in the fall, no biggie, and buncha girls did that. She tells us how much she loves Tri Delta, how she can't wait to be on, goes on and on about how we did in Greek Week and our fundraising efforts and all (I swear, she must have been a stalker or groupie or something) and to top it all of she announces...

"I even got a Delta Delta Delta tattoo". And pulls up her pant leg to revel a stars and creseant tattoo.

I look at her and with my best smile, said, 'whoa, that a nice tattoo' cause i really didn't know what else to say.

she got cut. again. i hear shes back for spring formal recruitment.

my only thought on the tattoo- at least she had 4 stars instead of 3

Maybe she really likes stars and cresent moons? It could have just been a big coinsidence?

DolphinChicaDDD 02-04-2004 01:11 PM

I would have thought that, but she specifically said,
"I even got a Delta Delta Delta tattoo" like she specfically set out to get a tattoo of one of Tri Delta's symbols

Yeah I love stars and moons, my room is done that way and I even considered get them as a tattoo, and if I did and when I go through rush it may seem I am trying to say "I am already for Tri-Delta" when in reality I just like stars and moons (alot)

Yeah, but this PNM came out and said "I even got a Delta Delta Delta tattoo".. that is a little different. True, she just may like stars and moons, but she shouldn't be saying that in a rush party. If a girl was like, "look I should be a Delta Zeta because I have a rose tattoo, or a turtle tattoo," I would think that it was a bit odd for her to be saying that, even though she just may simply like turtles or whatever

Oh yeah, I agree saying I got this tattoo for Tri-Delta or I have to be a Tri-D becuase of my tatt and my love for moons is scary. I would be afraid of her. She would be a stalker or something just as weird.

when i was a rushee
 
i was at the short skit day party of the sorority i ultimately joined. the zetas had a musical group within the sorority that was performing in place of a skit and as they got ready to play the last song the leader of the music group started to introduce it, saying that this song had a lot of meaning for the chapter because a sister had written the song after she had decided to go to medical school instead of accepting a marriage proposal. then they started singing the song and playing their instruments-this rushee starts looking around and says to me and my rush hostess, "no one in this sorority wrote that song...i have heard it somewhere before." her hostess and mine said something vague like"oh really",but the girl kept on insisting that that was a lie and that she had heard the song before and she was getting louder and louder. finally the song ended and we all were escorted out of the house, the girl still ranting and raving. it turns she HAD heard the words before-they were taken from a walt whitman poem, but the sister HAD written the music. well, we all learned our lesson from that rushee. from that party forward they went into indepth explainations about the origin of the words and the music. good grief!!!

I was having a great time at XYZ because their girls were down-to-earth and seemed very normal. Then I got to the third round, and the girl I had taking me around kept talking about the keggers they have for the new girls and the male strippers who come to new member sleepovers. Well, I didn't drink my freshman year and the stripper thing was.... well, a bit weird to me, especially to be advertising during recruitment. I ended up with a bid from them but denied it... which makes me happy, because I have found my home:)

this past fall i was rush chair- and we had this really crazy girl rushing- she was like all about one sorority's house- and then she'd go to the next and say how much she looovveeedddd that one- even though she didn't really fit in there.... so usually all sororities invite everyone back- and so we did her- and she came back- but eventually took a bid to another sorority b/c she liked the house better- um ok wahtever... so then one of my friends who was pledging was working with one of my sisters and this girl runs up to them and is like- omg i want to pledge you guys so badly and i want you to haze me and i can't wait- and she was going on and on about it in the dining hall in front of the lunch crowd... the sisters were so shocked and embarrassed lol- i was like who says that???

Not so much weird as nightmarish, but here goes.

We had structured informal rush with all the sororities, to give the PNM's a chance to look everyone over. This girl, who I shall name "Chili Con Carne," was a freshman who looked like a forty year old woman. Now, we make it a rule not to discriminate on looks (duh) and we just had a 30 year old sister graduate. So we figure, hey, give her a chance. We talked to her during our philanthropy/game night, and when it came time to discuss girls, the general consensus was that she was nice, but talking to her was like talking to our moms! She even brought cookies and brownies one night --we had no idea what to do with that.

But we figure, hey, she could just be nervous. So we saw her again at our karaoke night, during which everyone sang except for her. At this point, between the way she didn't look at you when she was talking to you, her loud, sometimes inappropriate outbursts, and her apparent insistence on only meeting the sisters and not those who could potentially be her sisters, gave me warning bells all over the place.

Our invite only rounds were coming up, and this girl became a huge point of contention. A majority of the sisters loved Chili and wanted her in; a few of us were wary and wanted to COB her to get to know her in a more relaxed environment.

We decided, to many members' disgusts, to not invite her back but to COB her. And that was when the isht really hit. We called her and informed her she was not invited back. Acknowledging that, she called back a few minutes later saying,"I just want to know why I didn't get in. Y'know, all my life I've had to work so hard for everything I wanted." Yes, warning bells.

We invite her to a COB event and the pro-Chili sisters glared at everyone and demanded that we get to know her. Well, she wound up being there an hour early and just waited for the event to begin. Later, Chili's sitting with two sisters and another PNM, when she interjects the conversation with,"Why didn't you give me a bid?" staring at one of the two sisters. Obviously, the conversation stumbled to a stop.

But we invited her yet AGAIN to a COB event (I must say at this point, I was NOT one of the pro-Chili girls right from the start.), and while waiting downstairs to be collected, she bumped into a sister and made a comment about how difficult it was to please "the bitches."

Last straw. We had a meeting to discuss our COB's, and when the truths began to surface, there were a lot of indignant and sheepish sisters in the room.

Moral of story: Trust your sisters, and that entails the naysayer minority as well as the yay-sayer majority.

This past rush, we had a girl who was a second semester junior. She rushed before, second semester of her freshman year and got a bid to ABC, her first choice. She started pledging them, but was forced to drop because her GPA wasn't high enough for that sorority. Her bid was supposed to carry over for one semester provided she could get her GPA up, only she didn't. This girl was still good friends with the ABC's and would always tell them "I think this semester I finally have the grades to pledge" when she knew that she didn't and eventually people stopped believing her. Well on top of that, she had problems with one of the girls in XYZ, and apparently tried to run this girl over with her car, intentionally. Now tell me, what sorority in their right mind is going to want to give a bid to a girl who thinks a way of dealing with her problems with someone else is by running them over? :rolleyes: One of my sisters was VP of Recruitment and she knows this rushee in person, so the girl ran up to her practically in tears saying how she couldn't go into XYZ's rush room because they all hated her.

on the first day of fall recruitment, right before my third party I was freaking out a little bit because I thought I had started my period. we were lined up outside the Chi-O chapter room (five of the sororities have chapter rooms in a dorm at my school) and there wasn't enough time to go run find a bathroom or anything, because the building is set up like a motel, and you have to be in the chapter/dorm rooms to have access to any bathroom.

so we go in, they're singing, and the fact that everything they say is "red hot" isn't helping me to not think about my dilema. The girl who was rushing me sits down, says hi, and I immediately say "Hi, I think I just started my period, do you have a tampon and can I go to the bathroom?"

it was embarassing to ask, but I had three more parties after that(including the one for my sorority) and I was wearing light tan shorts. after I got back from the bathroom she was nice, but really quiet. I think I weirded her out, and I felt really silly/bad about it.
