By Justin Feit Calendar Editor | May 3, 2013 | Calendar

The Calendar Page is considered editorial. The opinions expressed herein are not the opinions of The GusTavian Weekly, but they are actually the opinons of an old hermit who lives up yonder past the river and the woods. He likes to stay in the know with Gustie news.

Friday, May 3

New Faculty Orientation Session: St. Peter Room 12:30 p.m.

Seriously, how long does it take to train them?

Oh, Culpeper, you make it sound so wrong.

Feit-sty Not Really Horoscopes

Aries: I guess this weather beats a tornado.

Taurus: Kim and Kanye’s kid is going to be as shy as his parents are.

Gemini: At what point does Nic Cage start his own cage fighting league?

Cancer: Better yet, would a Nic Cage cage fighting league be surprising?

Virgo: Looking to the Big Concert, let’s start a Gavin DeGraw 2014 campaign.

Libra: But we’d probably get Jason Derulo.

Scorpio: Michael Bay recently apologized for Armageddon. If only he would apologize for his very existence.

Sagittarius: The Daytime Emmys are like television’s participation medals.

Capricorn: Gusties this semester have gone the way of the library book … checked out.

Aquarius: Just go ahead and get that Kermit the Frog tramp stamp.

Pisces: I’m never more aware while stuffing my face with donut holes than Diabetes Awareness Week.
