Top Ten Hurri’Cactivities
Sandy is coming, even the governor of Massachusetts says so. Here are the 10 best ways to spend your torrential–to-moderate-rain-and-wind filled hours.
- Acquire the necessary hurricargo. Buy the necessities: bottled water, pancake mix, chocolate, pasta, duct tape, etc. Set up the necessities: hurricane playlist (or listen to ours!), furniture moved to the side in the common room (for dance party purposes), etc.
- Throw a hurrikegger darty. Take the excellent example set by the Tufts Ultimate team and include mini-van shuttle service to the hurrikegger house in the early afternoon so as to avoid walking there in the (possible) downpour.
- Dress up in hurricostumes. What better excuse is there to use one of the many Halloween ideas that didn’t quite make the cut?
- Watch some hurricable. Until the storm blows the satellite dish/cable box off of your house/dorm. Then proceed to one of the other ideas on the list.
- Bake a hurricake. The storm may be raging, but creative baking (can anyone actually make a hurricane shaped cake? Please send pictures) is as good a way as any to spend a day.
- If you absolutely must study, have a hurricram sesh. There is no better time to get your work done then in the middle of a fairly severe natural disaster, after all (unless your friends are throwing a hurrikegger). That said, it’s hard to study whilst also trying to finish the hurrikeg that you bought…which is why I suggest investing in a hurrikegerator so that you don’t feel the pressure to finish the hurrikeg before classes resume.
- Make up hurricontests. Drinking, dancing, ruit tournaments, indoor parkour, whatever. Winner gets the hurricup.
- Use your hurricreativity, and do some hurricrafts. Take some artsy shots of fallen trees with you hurricamera, bust out the glue guns and the fabric paint, cut up some t-shirts, and and see how many surfaces you can cover with glitter.
- Are all of these options too active for you? Stressing you out? Then take advantage of the inability to leave the couch and just do some serious hurrichilling. Maybe get out the hurricards?
And, most importantly…
10. Have a hurrican attitude. There is nothing we hurrican’t do! Use that ‘Cac brain: indoor sloshball? Basement ping-pong tournament? Natural disaster -themed darty? Dorm-wide laser tag if the power goes out? Dorm-wide “no lights” tag if no one has a laser pointer? Finally completing The Big Lebowski drinking game? This is the excuse for all of the costumes you haven’t worn, all the parties you haven’t had yet, all the games you’ve been trying to get your floor-mates to play…
Yes, we hurrican!
