A Summary of Globalization in 20 Seconds (or, 3 TAs With Umbrellas)

I have often claimed that my exceptionally awesome major consumes my life. It's always good to know I'm not the only one, that the other "TA rockstars" are... well... complete geeks. On this stormy day, we were armed with umbrellas and a perfect example:

Danielle: Your umbrella's totally colonizing mine!

Me: Baaaah! Usurping of natural resources!

Danielle: nooooooo! Reduced nutritional value!

Evan: Not a market economy!

Me: We're imposing our value system now!

Evan: Context collapse! Collapse the context!

Me: Anthropology joke! Anthropology joke!


Danielle: I wish we could have recorded that whole thing just now.

Evan: Mm, yes, for increased self-awareness via the language of video.

Basically, we love what we do, apply it to everything, make ridiculous connections where there might not really be any, and actually enjoy the prospect of a long study session for Prins' Theory class. Tonight will be the above conversation, x 7 hours, + pizza.

Prins has a crazy analogy about his theory class being like an aboriginal walk-about through the dark and treacherous Valley of the Moon. Tonight, we'll probably be trudging through it in rain boots. Here's hoping we can still find our way on Tuesday...

Don't you want to be an anthropologist now? :P
