On the way to the store the other day, I saw this homeless guy wandering the street looking really dirty and was pushing a cart and he had a load of trash he was pushing around, he was wearing a very old and very dirty TKE jersey black with red letters. I had to look twice and sure enough he was wearing a jersey, it even looked like it had a nickname on the back or some writing but I couldn't make it out.

He prob. got it at a good will store or clothes drive...
I would never donate my letters and such to a goodwill store, all my shirts that are too worn out to wear I have started collecting in hopes of making a shirt quilt

Women's bathroom LaSalle Street Train Station -

I had just finished washing my hands and was attempting to make my way out of the bathroom to catch my train home. I happened to glance down and saw a Chi Omega bag. How cool was that?

I was in a pub in Niagara Falls, ON for May 2-4 and I went to the washroom. Well you know how people like to write on the bathroom stalls, so I was reading all the little postings keeping myself amused and I glanced at Pi Phi letters. They were just letting every one know that they had been there. I was a newly initiated member (march of that year) so I was excited to see that other Pi Phi's had been there. I ran back to tell my friend, but she wasn't excited (she's not Greek).


*Note: I do not condone writing on bathroom walls , it's was just nice to see my letter.

I was eating in Chili's tonight. Anyone who has ever been there probably remembers that they have Chili cookoff advertisements all over the walls there. I was looking at the one over our table tonight and in the list of events there, it mentioned and arts and crafts show sponsored by the Mu Tau chapter (I think that was the chapter, at least) of Beta Sigma Phi.

i found this to be pretty cool......

there was a pin up on ebay that had sigma kappa's open motto on it.
it said "one heart, one way" around the letters MG overlayed on each other.
the pin was being sold by some guy in england and he wanted to find out as well what it was. so he did a little research and found out the MG stands for "methodist gentlemen"
evidently a group started a while ago who found sigma kappa's motto to be relevant to their group.

so i got to see my motto somewhere odd, but not my letters.

oh actually, scratch that, i did see my letters on a girl in oxford one day when i went back. i think it was for new year's. she was walking out of kroger and being that we no longer exist on miami's campus and i didn't recognize her, i asked her where she got the shirt she was wearing.
it just happened to be a shirt that my chapter had. evidently she was from the ohio university chapter where i visited the year before bearing gifts of shirts from my chapter.
so oddly enough i got to see my own shirt on some other sister from some other chapter that i just happen to visit and give these shirts to. wow.......cool.......

two stories:

my boyfriend (a Chi Phi) and I were walking outside the high museum of Art in Atl and we saw a migrant construction worker wearing a Chi Phi tank top!!!! it was weird and funny. It had to be thrift store find cuz I'm pretty sure that Chi Phi doesn't have any chapters in Mexico!

Tonight I was watching this silly tv show called "stupid people caught on tape" or something else escapist like that and there was this one scene of two college football mascots beating each other up. This was at Northern LU and I guess all the greek chapters keep big wooden letters around the sidelines of the field. As the two mascots (an Indian and a demon) ripped into each other seriously I saw a big set of TKE letters and then the camera froze right as one mascot ripped the head mask off the other. Behind them frozen, were three huge wooden Sigmas!!!!
heee!. It was funny (although somewhat odd) and it made me excited because I'm in the only Sigma chapter in my state, so it was nice to be reminded that we are in other places!!!!!

Today on TLC I saw this show "Curb Appeal", and the house they were renovating was the Pikes house at...UC Berkley, I think they said. It looked really nice when they were done!
I'll probably be one of those Americans walking around in letters next year in Germany -- I'm studying there and something like 3/4 of my t-shirts have letters on them, so I'm bound to wear them. A Kappa Kappa Gamma and a Delta Sigma Phi are going with me.

A couple years ago, before they hired Kelly Rippa to be the permanent co-host on Live with Regis (& later Kelly) they had a week where they had college students act as a co-host. One of the co-hosts was an ADPi! My mom called me in the room to tell me! That was pretty cool!
I never saw her on Regis & Kelly, but she was on the show "All American Girl on ABC/ABC Family. She is from my mom's ADPi chapter at East Carolina!

That was my sister's friend. Yea, she is a Gamma Phi

three stories:
my parents live in egypt so when we went to visit last summer we went down to the temple at abu simble, which is this huge temple on the nile. anyway, it was built like 4000 years ago and there's greek graffiti on it from the greeks. and oddly enough there was a sigma and a kappa right next to each other on one of the legs of one of the statues. kinda cool.

i'm studying in london right now, and i see tons of american kids wearing greek stuff all over town. just on my program of 23 people we've got 2 phi psi's, a pika, me, a gamma phi, an adpi and an aopi.

i was in paris last weekend and was in the elevator going up to the top of the eiffel tower and happened to be wearing one of my homecoming sweatshirts with my letters on it . this girl came up to me and was like "where are you a sigma kappa?" and i told her penn state. turns out she was a sigma kappa from oregon state! totally random

all i have to say is we greeks are everywhere!!

sorry to post again, but don't you know i have some good stories... i wait tables at a tgifridays, one day i was waiting on these two ladies probably abour 65 years of age, both in town for the wedding of their children (mother of the bride and groom) from new york.. something caught my eye on one of the ladies lapel's..it was a torch pin from my sorority (SDT).. i was SO excited (we're nowhere near the size of some other orgs.).. it was kinda funny because noone else seemed to understand the reason why i was bouncing off the walls with excitement (with the exception of a GPhiB that i work with)..oh well like they say from the inside out you can't explain it, from the outside in, you can't understand it.
Also, i was in Dublin this past St. Pat's and obviously no trip to Dublin is complete without a trip to the St. James Gate brewery (guiness) there's a section where you can write a message and put it up on the wall.. i must have seen every possible GLO up on that wall.. so of course i put a shout out to my fellow founders and put it right up next to another SDT (from one of the SUNYs) and took pictures.. that was a great feeling of home abroad...
