I agree. I've driven this road in the rain and it's NOT FUN. There are so many roads in the northeast that I've managed to find in order to avoid driving on the major highways; most are beautiful, and many can be dangerous.

Earlier today at the gym, an older man in a Sigma Chi shirt.

Also, a black man in a Sigma Phi Epsilon tshirt, and the day before that, a black woman in Delta Gamma letters. Now, neither should surprise me, because #postracial, but it still does. Maybe not so much because of the neighborhood where I saw both (UWS, where many transplants are recent college grads from large state schools across the midwest and south, where I imagine greek life is a big deal).

Just got home from a dr appt, turned on the Price is Right, and a contestant in contestants row as well as a group in the audience are wearing Delta Phi Epsilon letters.

They're wearing jerseys and from what I can tell, Gamma Beta Chapter (Florida Atlantic University) and a part of the Nu pledge class.

I was supposed to be in DC for the Phi Beta Sigma convention. But duty calls!

There is a Chi Omega who is at the gym as much as I am. I see her plate daily.

Agreed. I was "initiated" after marrying my husband in 1988. Gorgeous drive but hated it in bad or dark conditions.

I started watching DanLand on Netflix last night. The documentary profiles Dan Leal who is known as Dan the Porno man. They showed 3 paddles hanging in his home. It appears that he is a member of Phi Kappa Sigma from George Mason University.

I didn't finish the documentary....it was weird.

At Ronald Reagen Airport in D.C I saw several guys wearing ZBT lettered shirts. Later I found out that today is the start of their International Convention & Leadership School in Washington D.C. Enjoy Gentlemen!!!

TX State Gamma Phis

I saw a car outside Office Depot with TX State Gamma Phi Beta decals - saw a young woman with a lavaliere, but couldn't make out if it was her. As I was checking out, I saw her looking at the back of my car (with Gamma Phi Beta and NPC decals). I left the check out counter, told her "Yes, I'm the Gamma Phi!". She came in, we took pictures - super fun!
