What a day for a Jimmy Buffet song. I think pleasant weather is the key. Somehow sitting on my porch swing and strumming my six string sounds a lot better when it's 82 degrees, sunny and the humidity is low. Granted, cheeseburgers are just as appealing in any weather… however, were it blistering hot or freezing, you would not call it "paradise". Another food item which is good no matter the season, but seems that much better when the weather is beautiful, are donuts. That may be why the Friday Donut Club has been so successful for two years and eleven months to the date. That's a little over 4,000 donuts by my count! As we look for things to do to celebrate the third anniversary of the Friday Donut Club, I think we should institute next Friday as Hawaiian Shirt Friday. I will wear mine and hope to see lots of color around campus from similarly flamboyant shirts.
Obviously, the whole point of this e-mail is to let you know donuts have arrived. Andrea Gavalas has graciously swapped donut duty with Shaun Andrews and made a trip all the way to Thornton to get three dozen Krispy Kreme donuts. So come and enjoy a couple of donuts (even if you are not the son of a son of a sailor).
