Found: The sock strikes back

We’ve seen it before: crazy things left on the ground around campus. Perhaps the most notable for followers of the Beacon Blog – and before that, the now-defunct PBA Local – was a sock found on the ground in the Pembroke commuter lot.

The sock was made famous not just by PBA Local, but also by Extra Credit, a blog written by Palm Beach Post contributing writers.

Well folks, the sock is back.

The sock was found today in the walkway between Oceanview and Baxter halls, suspiciously close to the last known location. We think it’s the other half of the pair.

Found: Remnants of SunFest

Found this morning in the Dixie Parking Garage: a bottle of Corona with about a quarter inch of beer still left, along with a chewed up piece of lime.

This is believed to be from one of the many SunFest patrons who were allowed to park in the garage for the duration of the event over the weekend.

Said the anonymous contributor in their e-mail, “Can you imagine if a prospective student saw this, or even worse, one of their parents? This is crazy.”

Found: Friendly Gummy bear parking reminders

The geniuses behind the building and planning of the Walt Disney parks in Orlando really got things right when they color coordinated the parking lots. Yeah I guess it isn’t so hard to remember that you parked on level 5 but its just so much easier to remember that you parked in the Peter Pan level E instead.

Apparently, some good Samaritan has initiated the same concept in the Dixie Parking garage by sticking a different colored gummy bears on the wall in the stairwell of each floor of the parking lot. Each color coordinates with a different level.

Thanks a lot friendly Samaritan, for the helpful reminder that I parked on Green Gummy bear level (a.k.a. level three.)

Found: Remnants of Easter

Found, Easter EditionIf Easter crept up on your quicker than you can say “Final Exams,” we feel your sentiment. But it’s true, random Easter bunnies on campus means that Spring time has finally made it’s way to the academic semester and there is officially three weeks left of classes until the year is over. For some of us, it’s a nice reminder that stressful classes and jobs will soon be over.

Thank you kind stranger for the subtle reminder.

Found: Christians eat babies?

Found today in the parking lot between Towers and Lakeview:

Says the anonymous source who took the picture: “It looks like this car drove right out of the Dark Ages. And they’re 85% what? Polyester?”
