Past Words of the Day

Since Seattleites live for gloriously sunny weather, this phrase typically is used to emphasize just HOW nice the weather was on any given day. It refers to clear blue skies--so clear, in fact, that you can see Mt. Rainer. Example: "Wasn't the weather amazing yesterday? The mountain was even out!".

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.

The people in Buffalo are a very religious bunch (mostly Roman Catholic), as well as very taken to their alcohol.
