Remind me not to go anywhere near downtown Huntington today.

Kelly said...

hell yeah I'm going. Why aren't you going? Is Mrs. Filmgeek going? I can't imagine she'd miss MM!

Hahaha! Yeah, I am definitely glad NOT to be in Huntington today. I bet it's crazy!

For fans of Marshall and Lost, this poses quite a dilemma. I'm going to watch Lost, and go Herd!

I hope all this buzz raises MU's profile some. As it is when I tell people I graduated from Marshall they always ask, "Is that an accredited institution?" Nice.

The Film Geek said...

Hey Bigfoot, that makes me curious: what did you study at good ol' MU?

The Film Geek said...

Kelly, I have some evening committments on Wednesday nights. And Mrs. Film Geek sits quietly by the living room window awaiting my return.

Mostly I studied all the girls dressed in black on the sixth floor of smith hall... After several years of that I finally calmed down enough to settle on a history BA.

When I mention I went to Marshall people say, "the one with the football team?".

The Film Geek said...

That's odd...I think I failed a history class I took on the 6th floor of Smith Hall. Ddidn't have anything to do with chicks, though. Just boredom.

Kelly said...

You do realize that mrs. filmgeek reads your blog, right?

The sixth floor of smith hall was the art floor that included the color photo lab, and the painting studio. All of my history courses were held in harris hall.

The Film Geek said...

Yeah, which takes nothing away from the fact that I failed the freaking class. It was in Smith Hall, though..Seems like it was History...It was the only class I ever failed, so it's kinda stuck in my head.

Um, Mrs. Film Geek has never sat quietly waiing for the return of any guy other than Mr. McConaughey, where she waited for him to return after going out to pick up some whipped cream.
