i’ve been sitting in the library for six hours. working on my silverian final. and, except for one quick trip to the restroom, i’ve completely ignored the very sound advice i was given a few months ago to stand up and move around more often while i’m working. and now i understand people’s reaction to the campy seventies music byu’s library used to play starting 15 minutes before closing. downstairs, on the first floor in the rather lovely asian studies area of the library where i frequently studied, the students who had been sitting there all night would, with some regularity, dance on the tables. i never participated, but i think that were the library’s soundsystem to start blaring music from hawaii five-o right at this moment, i would be sorely tempted.

    I miss hearing the cool music at the end of the night in BYU’s library. Too bad I didn’t hear it more often…I guess I was having too much fun playing and not enough time studying!!

    maybe you just didn’t procrastinate as much as me so you didn’t have to be at the library until it closed at midnight. :)it is a rather endearing custom, though. shocked the hell out of me the first time i stayed late enough to hear it. but the table dancing (and sliding–there was one night when a few guys were running towards an especially long table and then jumping and landing on their bellies and sliding. it made me cringe to watch them, and i’m not even male) was especially memorable.

    Now someone can correct me, but they do play hawaii five-o at BYUH at closing time. You all went to the wrong Y!

    well, if we did the absence of hawaii five-o in the library isn’t the clue that gives it away. they always played it in byu’s library…
