Karen's Cafe - 8/22/12

Hi everyone!!  Well, It's been released! The results of Princeton Review's top 20 "Party Schools" have been announced and once again, Marc Adams School of Woodworking has been ignored....totally ignored. 

Really? I don't get it. What's going on?? We have so much fun here. I mean, there is a lot of hard work going on, but when it's time to relax and have a good time...say, like lunchtime, we are ALL OVER IT!! We have birthday cakes and sing "Happy Birthday" to every single student and employee on their special day! It has nothing to do with the fact that we LOVE..LOVE Sam's Club Whipped Cream Icing that just absolutely melts in your mouth...honest. And who else do you know, has a week-long class devoted to "Woodworking for Psycho's?" taught by the PREMIERE authority on...errr...umm...yeah, psycho's,...Roy Underhill. We have a school "fight song"...did you know that? Yup! It was written by none other than John Resslar himself. How many other schools can proudly proclaim that little gem? None, that's how many (at least I don't think's a pretty good, I'm not ABSOLUTELY positive that some other school didn't hear our song and decide they wanted one too...I'll get back to you on that one.)

Finally, and I'm gonna stop here because being a "braggart" is just NOT how I roll! How many schools can claim to celebrate THE...OFFICIAL...."TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY??? Huh? How many?? Five...six? Nope....just one! That's right, MARC ADAMS SCHOOL OF WOODWORKING does. And we have the pictures to prove it. Just like Prince Harry...uh, never mind.

I think, after all these years I'm giving up hope for that #1 title. We don't need any ole stinkin' Princeton "place" (wherever THAT is!) ...tellin' us we don't party anyway. What do they know??

We know the truth don't we? Why, we put the "art" in the word "pARTy!!!

OOps! Spelling mistake ? my bad Kirk. Kirk?s last name is Coryn not Koryn. Congratulations on the Honorable mention Kirk!

But on a much more serious and celebratory note ? Scott Groves female nude veneer sculpture won the Specialty category at the Veneer Tech Challenge. He made it right there in front of Marc?s office at MASW ? that was kind of like a wild party (?). I won?t share any of the details here, ahem . . . Oh, and our very own alumnus, Kirk Koryn?s entry ? a beautiful marquetry bed, received an Honorable mention. Wait, I am seeing a theme here ? are you sure MASW wasn?t mentioned as a party school? Hmmm, we will have to make that a ?special project? for next year. Too bad the lodge might not be ready ? what a party that will be! Which brings to mind a conversation Dr Pepper and I had the last time we were at MASW at the same time concerning the lack of single . . . . . But perhaps this would be better to discuss at another time!
