All these posts about preppy things has me remembering my younger days. I remember my first Gin & Tonic. When I was in college, I was in Circle K. One summer, I went to a Circle K convention in Chicago. While there, I met some guys from Babson College. They were so preppy. For some reason, they were taken with me. I think it was the southern accent, or maybe they had never met a preppy southern girl. Most Circle K'ers were not very preppy. I don't think they had ever heard a southern lady speak. They invited me to a party, where they were serving gin & tonics. I was normally a vodka person, but after one G&T, I was hooked. I never saw Craig, Peter or Schwen again, but I still credit them for making gin & tonics my favorite drink. When TOPH came out, I read where Babson College was the most preppy college. Every once in a while, I drink a toast to the "Boys from Babson".

Tonight, when I was playing on the computer, I signed up for facebook. I haven't created a profile, yet, but I will in time.

I hope everyone has a good Tuesday.

I LOVE gin and tonics! The perfect summer drink... Watch out for Facebook... it totally will suck time away, but you will be able to keep in touch with people-- which makes up for the time it takes away!

I love G&T's too. It was really nice and sunny yesterday and DOTR cracked open the Bombay Blue and had a little cocktail hour! It seemed like the perfect thing to do.

Two girls on Martha Stewart's Lilly show yesterday were from Babson. They said there was lots of Lilly lovers there. Maybe BigGirl should go there. ;-)
