OMG, yes!!! She'll probably know more about how everything works than the Pi Chi!

Hmmm, I'm not sure I see there is an open mind, period.

Luckily, it doesn't matter what you think!:

--and this thread will be closed until recruitment begins for Tallulah.

So Tallulah was very excited to go to the recruitment convocation! Finally, some action!

She was sad that she didn't have a roommate to go with but she figured that she'd make friends as recruitment progressed since the school had a record number of PNMs. A girl came and sat next to her but AUWE!! This girl started insisting to Tallulah that the PNMs would be hazed during recruitment! (We'll be calling her Hazel.)

The RGs explained the recruitment process to the women. Parties would start in a few days. Tallulah was ready to HULA!

For sure! A couple of Tallulah's sisters said we should say, "Oh, absolutely! They egg you as you walk in the chapter room door!" but given all the times that my kids saw the public hazing of the former local sororities at a nearby college, we decided to reassure her. We reminded her that she knows that sororities aren't supposed to haze their new members so why on earth would they haze PNMs?

Now we should have sent *Hazel* a note telling her to be sure and wear a raincoat as she entered the chapter rooms, though...

Carnation, that is just naughty.

FYI: I'm very testy (and annoyed) (and disappointed) with all the drama 'round here lately and would like to enjoy a good read without getting a headache or having people with issues trot them out and beat everyone over the head. Hoping for some aloha spirit in your thread.

So now we wait for invitations! In the meantime, we have some fine Hawaiian music to listen to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKQrahj1IqU

Right back at you.

Missing aloha. Want to be there now. Sigh.

ETA: I know exactly where I was (eating an Ono sandwich in a little shop in Paia) the first time I heard this. Magical.
