Past Words of the Day

1. The colored (orange, yellow and green) metal chairs outside at the Memorial Union Terrace. You can buy replica terrace chairs in the store inside the union in red and white, but not in the colors outside (though students have been known to steal the real ones as college souvenirs to remember happy times drinking and socializing on the terrace). People have gotten "busted" for having them out on porches and balconies where their thievery is on display.

2. For me, the chairs represent the center of the Universe. I have traveled all over the world and have met people who know the chairs. Just this last weekend I introduced my 8 year old to the chairs. We relaxed in them and enjoyed a cool beverage while watching the boats on the lake and listening to reggae.

3. The terrace chairs represent some of my fondest memories at UW. I spent many a day sitting in them, looking out over the lake and pretending to study. The terrace chairs are quintessentially Madison.

4. Sure, the terrace chairs are emblematic of UW-Madison, and perhaps Madison as a whole, but nobody ever assesses their comfort. I find them quite uncomfortable.

Refers to the laid-back atmosphere, where it is not uncommon for people to arrive 10 minutes late for meetings

1. The area is defined by many oil industry related companies and large corporations, such as ExxonMobil and Shell. Also it is home to residential neighborhoods, restaurants, and parks.

2. A district located along Memorial Drive and Eldridge Parkway where much of Houston's oil industry is localized.

Gravy made from instant coffee and ham grease. it probably tastes better than it sounds, but the non-Alabama native may opt to take someone else's word for it.

The interstate expressway designated I-94 running from its divergence from I-90 north to Lake County. All expressways in Chicago are given a moniker, so the interstate numbers are rarely used by locals.
