I am in love.

This morning, I went for an interview at Hamilton College. The interview was dandy, but afterwards, walking around with Jenn Pope, I really fell in love with the place. There are two sides to campus, Light Side and Dark Side. The Light side used to be the all boys school, and all the buildings are stone and beautiful. The Dark side used to be the all girl school, and all the building were made from cement in the seventies and look very funny and retro. Even so, it's a gorgeous campus. Everyone was very nice. The german class I attended had about twelve students, and was a lot of fun. I was able to participate, because as they learned their grammar lesson it came back to me. I also talked to Jenn's roomate Fiona, who loves musicals, about the musicals they put on. She said they do a lot. Last semester they did The Mystery of Edwin Drood, which she didn't expect me to know, but I did, because I saw it two weeks ago at Manhattanville. She told me a lot about choir, which made me really really excited. I'm just very thrilled, I really hope I get in and can attend Hamilton.

I think the term you're looking for is "women's college"...

Glad to hear you liked Hamilton.

I, too, loved Hamilton. It would probably have been my first choice school if it not been just 45 minutes from home.

Fortunately, Caleb, we live further from Hamilton than your family does!

I think we earned some points on that issue when James was at Colgate, and we left him alone -- he called once a week, on Sunday, and we ran into him only twice all year, once in Hamilton, and the second time at Craine Lake -- so we ate our meal inside, and he and his friends had theirs on the deck!

Yes, although some indirect interference is inevitable. It would have been impossible to keep hidden from you the things that many people keep hidden in college. Not that I have anything to hide, of course....
