A GREAT LOSS



As Andrew and I were brushing our teeth and getting ready for bed last night, we heard a knock at the door and after a minute of putting on clothes I answered the door. It was Jenna, Andrea, Becca, and Kristin; they were wanting to go to Merrits. So after some good schmoozing and Andrew and I remembering my new life motto, "You only live once" we up and went. We had a crammed car which is always great for the oddly longish ride.

This was the first time that I'd been to Merrits this semester and was saddened to see the new addition as well as experience a little piece of myself break apart; they replaced the classic jukebox with a new slick, high tech one. I didn't look through the songs because the price has now risen to I think a dollar and I just felt like I needed to have a time of remembrance and silence for the old jukebox which gave us many a great songs throughout the years.

You will be missed old jukebox; you were a legend. I hope the new one will step it up with classics like "Take it Easy", any Queen song, as well as my personal fav. "American Pie."

Other than this loss, we had a great time.

Because its a digital jukebox, there are a lot more songs than previously which means a lot of good songs. But also a lot of crap. They have 50cent and Madonna and whatever else which means idiots can choose that and make the rest of us listen to it. It truly is sad.

at least the company was good.
you must admit.
