Faux pez? - Redrum - 06-19-2015

I've actually had faux Pez...  In Greece/Turkey.  Eons ago.  The dispensers were laughably bad knockoffs, but that's why we bought the things.  Come to think of it, the non-faux dispensers are no mechanical wonders.  The little pez candy blocks looked like they were made by hand with butter knives without benefit of molds...each piece was different.

Thanks Robbie, and good to see you here. Always a bonus when you see a familiar face. And thanks for the facebook mention too!

Hi, JJJ. Good to have another Roble person on board -- Nan3cy and I have argued that Roble alums should get an immediate credit of 500 posts on the grounds of superior pedigree, but so far, no luck.

Ignore Publius -- he hits on all the newbies.

Thank you garvin. Is it just me or is there a larger proportion of Robleites represented here than would be expected otherwise? I was 3A (frosh quad), 3A (triple), and 3-Center (single) before going off-campus my unguaranteed year.

I was an honorary Robleite after I graduated.  My girlfriend (now wife) lived there her senior year.

The only thing that sucks worse than Roble is Biz :P


Re: Introductions - Nan3cy - 06-21-2015

Wait a second here. In order to have truly lived in Roble, you have to have lived in Roble when it was all freshman women who were served their meals by white-coated hashers in the dining hall and had to be back in the dorm by 10:30 at night in order not to be locked out. You folks are all poseurs.

Bad-mouthing Roble is a violation of the CardBoard's Fundamental Standard, winflop. You could be banished to Telegraph Avenue.


Re: Introductions - washingtonismoney - 06-21-2015

Surely, however, we can all agree:


Branner sucks.

I used to live right off Telegraph...

And I'm another Robleite. Lived there Freshman year, spent the next 3 years trying to get back. Closest I got was Lag.


Re: Introductions - garvin - 06-22-2015

JJJ, it does seem to me we have an unusual number of Robleites, but it may just be that Roble people speak up more because most of us liked it. (Nan3cy and her raging 1966 hormones are possibly the exception.) I mean, I've never heard anybody at a Stanford event pipe up and say, "Oh my goodness was Twain a thrilling experience!"

I lived on 2B as a freshman, 3-Center the next three years, the final two in the same room. I should have claimed homestead rights.

I spent sophomore year in Twain and it was the best year I had at Stanford.  Admittedly it was, in large part, thanks to a bunch of guys that lived in Roble frosh year.

We remember lamenting our bad draw number.  In retrospect, we would never have had as much fun in the at-the-time brand new Kimball Hall.  I spent a fair amount of time there senior year.  Place seemed boring.  Too new and antiseptic to allow the stunts we pulled in Twain. 


Re: Introductions - washingtonismoney - 06-22-2015

I also lived in Twain and enjoyed it, so there.


Re: Introductions - garvin - 06-22-2015

Okay, JJJ, I stand corrected: We also have an unusually large contingent of Twain dorks. Also surprising.

Agreed. "Ended up" in Twain North my sophomore year. Loved it!

It's all good! Thanks for finding out for me!  8)


Re: Introductions - Publius - 06-22-2015

Back in the early 90s, Twain had the reputation for being one of the funnest dorms on campus.  To get in, you had to select it ahead of "any Stern".  I'm not sure how Twain's culture started or how long it has persisted.  Does anybody know?


Re: Introductions - garvin - 06-22-2015

This thread is making me sad...
