Fete D'Avril

All holidays should be celebrated with a two-day orgy. Hunting for eggs? Microwaving peeps? What the hell kind of spring celebration is that? The only opportunity this puritanical society gets to properly initiate the rites of spring is if, by chance, your town's college wins the NCAA championship. Then it's been so repressed that it explodes and all rules of society are tossed to the ground like so many pairs of underwear. Bonfires; people naked in trees; and sex on the hood of cars shouting, "go heels!"

I went downtown after the game to catch some of the revelry. After about half an hour, it got kinda old. There was nothing there. No substance. People were partying just for the sake of partying. Kind of like the Rodney King Jr. riots. Were people so outraged that they had to express their anger through looting, or were they looking for an excuse to get that new hi-fi system?

Anyhow, I had to go. On that night, I'm sure Chapel Hill was the biggest party city in the whole world. You've gotta take part in a global event like that.

Go Heels!

good thing nights like that don't happen all too often because they require A LOT of clean up. but then sometimes the even bigger mess happens a couple nights later, the kind of mess you can't even begin to clean up.

go heels!
